Hair Care That’ll Keep Your Hair Protected For Holi

Hair Care That’ll Keep Your Hair Protected For Holi

The fun and frolic begins soon! Holi is just around the corner and we’re sure you’re already preparing to make it as colourful as ever. From pichkaris to gulal you’ve gotta have everything covered, but let’s not forget something that’s equally important - your hair! You don’t want to end the vibrant day feeling sad about your hair being in ruins. So, here are some pre-holi hair care tips that’ll make sure your hair stays shiny and strong at the end of the day.

Oil All The Way

This one goes without saying. We’re pretty sure your mum or grandma are already screaming at you to oil your hair before you play, and they’re right! Oiling your hair before you play is essential to keep it healthy and shiny. It creates a barrier on your hair and protects it from any harmful colours settling into your scalp. It will also make it so much easier to wash your hair post your Holi shenanigans. Oil your hair an hour before you play so that it can seep in properly and be most effective. Coconut oil is the best kind of oil to use but jojoba and castor oil will also do the trick.

Keep It Covered

The temptation to leave your hair open and play holi is too real, but covering your hair or tying it up is the best thing you can do for your hair! Keeping your hair away from as much damage as possible is the easiest way to make sure your hair stays in top condition. You can tie up your hair into a ponytail or use a bandana to keep it away from as much damage as possible. It’s a simple hack, but it’s very effective!

 A Massage Does The Trick

There’s never been a better time to get a head massage than just before Holi! Head massages not only keep you relaxed and calm, but they help keep your hair healthy too. They help with reducing product buildup and removing dead skin cells to help stimulate hair growth and overall hair health. It’s best to get a head massage one day before holi so that you can reap its benefits in full. You can head to your closest Femina Flaunt Salon and get a super relaxing bringadi or neem almond oil head massage for 30 minutes and make sure your hair is in its best condition post holi too! 

Braid It Up

Just like covering your hair or tying it up - braids are another efficient solution to keeping your hair away from damage. A simple braid can help reduce breakage and keep your hair intact all through the day. A professionally done braid is always best, so step out to a Femina Flaunt Salon and make sure you get braids that’ll keep your hair protected from all the colour damage.

Clean The Mess

It’s a given that you’re going to have to wash your hair post playing but it can be a mess to handle. Start off by thoroughly rinsing your hair with plain water to get rid of all the dirt, dry colours, chemicals and the mica particles from the colour. Then, apply a mild shampoo and gently massage your hair and scalp and leave the shampoo in for about 10 minutes so that all the dust and colours can be extracted and dissolved. Rinse out the shampoo and apply a heavy conditioner to make sure your scalp can regenerate all the oil and moisture that’s been stripped away by the colours. If you still feel like you need a little more moisture and life overall, oil it overnight after Holi too. You can also opt for a luxury hair wash at the Femina Flaunt Salon and get it blow dried to make sure your hair stays gorgeous.
Holi doesn’t have to be scary for your hair when you’re properly prepared! Follow through with these tips and your hair is sure to be full of life even after you play to your hearts content.
