Here are few tips on how to take care of your hair on holi.

1 Oil your hair well: A night before Holi, take a head massage with warm caster, a mixture of jojoba and rosemary oil or coconut oil. If you have a sensitive scalp skin, also add a few drops of lemon juice to avoid any infection by the chemicals in colours.

2 Clean properly: After playing Holi, rinse off your hair immediately with a mild shampoo and condition your hair. Then apply a pack of olive oil and honey to your hair. Do not to wash your hair twice on the same day.

Hair3 Cover your hair: Either wear a hairband, scarf, a bandana or a shower cap on your head to protect your hair from getting tangled, torn and damaged due to artificial colour.

4 Apply hair gel : The greasy and oily nature of gel doesn’t allow colours to stick on your hair and can be washed off easily later.

5 Coloured hair: Strictly avoid usage of synthetic colours. After wash and conditioning apply hair serum to repair the hair after playing Holi.
