5 Best hair tips for Holi 2020
One of the most high-spirited festivals filled with hues of joyful colors is around the corner. Holi is all about colors, food, togetherness, dance, and all sorts of cheer. This delightful festival is celebrated in all parts of the country with huge fervor and exuberance. Undeniably, the colors of love rejoice our heart with long-lasting happiness, but amidst the celebration, protecting your skin and hair from harmful colors is also important. While you gear up to enjoy the festival with your loved ones, do not forget to guard your tresses and scalp from the crazy holi fun. Here are some easy but effective hair care tips to follow during holi celebration –
1. Pre oiling
Hair oiling is a must to shield your hair from toxic ingredients (dyes, copper sulphate, chromium iodide, powdered glass, and so on) present in holi colors. Preferably, a combination of coconut oil and jojoba oil is considered one of the best hair tips for holi to keep hair and scalp nourished. Both of these oils are packed with essential vitamins, mineral, and carbohydrates, which prevent hair breakage and restore natural shine.
Oiling your hair a day prior or in the morning will protect the penetration of colors into your strands, which makes it easier to take off the color. Not only this, but it will also protect your hair from becoming frizzy, dull and damaged due to holi colors.
2. Head cover
Holi colors can make your scalp feel irritated and itchy. It is highly advisable to cover your head with a cap, bandana or scarf. Keep hair woes at bay this holi, by protecting them and your scalp with a head cover, which would prevent direct contact with the colors.
3. Tie them up
It is quite fascinating to watch models flaunt their tresses during Holi parties and commercials. But such temptation can put your hair in double trouble. Holi colors that get mixed in the atmosphere blows through your hair, making them look dry, brittle, and lifeless. Instead of falling for such unrealistic trends, make some pretty bun, stylish braids or half tie hairstyle to protect your hair.
4. Hair wash
After all the fun and frolic, don’t rush to take a shower and shampoo your hair as soon as possible. A lot of people consider that shampooing their hair will help get rid of all the holi color. However, prior to shampooing it is important to rinse with plain water to get rid of colors deposited on the hair and scalp. Also, use a non- comedogenic shampoo which does not block your pores.
5. Deep conditioning
Post holi, harsh colors strip off natural oils and moisture content from your hair. To retain the natural health of your hair, it is important to provide deep hydration and nourishment to your strands. Begin with using a conditioner after every head wash and hair masks twice or thrice in a week.
Opt for conditioners that are free from silicone, since they impart temporary shine to your hair with a coating. Using such conditioners has been found to obstruct the flow of nutrients to your hair that eventually leads to dry, brittle, and thin hair. Luckily, murumuru and babassu based conditioners have emerged as natural alternatives to silicone conditioners. Both these natural plant ingredients offer deep hydration to each strand of hair.
Since your hair had a tough time dealing with harsh colors during holi, they need extra care to reverse this damage. A Hair mask comes to play its role here by hydrating dull and dry hair. Hair masks particularly comprising of natural ingredients like pea protein, Ceramides and omega 3 fatty acids offer deep hydration and nourishment as compared to other conditioners.
This holi add shades of health, shine and smoothness to your hair with a little more love and care. Celebrate the festival of vibrant colors with full fervor, but take care of your hair as well to create best memories, which will last for years.
Wish you all a very Happy Holi 2020!
