Holi, the festival of colours, family, and friends is just around the corner, and people across the nation are all enthusiastic to enjoy one of the most cheerful occasions in our calendar. Long gone are the days where people used to play Holi only with natural colours, which are made up of natural ingredients like flowers and herbs.

Over the years, natural colours have been replaced by artificial and chemical alternatives. These artificial colours can lead to hair and skin problems. Their direct contact can cause dryness of the scalp, split ends, hair breakage and even hair loss. So it’s better to gear up this Holi to protect your skin and hair from any undue harm.

In this post, we will give you some preventive and curative tips that will help you enjoy holi the way you want to without the fear of harm caused by chemical colours. Just follow these pre and post hair care tips to enjoy a carefree Holi.

Pre-Holi Hair Care

Following preventive tips and tricks are a must if you want to enjoy Holi without any worries:

Oil massage

Apply coconut, olive, or Vitamin E oil all through the hair to prevent damage from harsh colours. Doing this will ensure that your hair and scalp stay nourished, and this will save your hair from all the damages caused by dry chemical colours. Make sure that you apply sufficient hair at least an hour before you start playing.

Serum or leave-in conditioner

To protect your hair this Holi, ensure that you have masked the roots of your hair by applying a serum. As hair is extremely prone to chemical reactions and artificial colours, it is bound to become dry. So, in order to avoid this, make sure that you properly apply a root mask serum before playing Holi, so that they don’t get dry and discoloured.


Style up your hair or wrap them down

Hairstyling your hair in buns or braids, or covering them with a shawl or a bandana, will lessen the surface area of your head that is exposed to the harmful colours of Holi celebrations. So, this Holi, go ahead and enjoy it to the fullest, but don’t forget to keep your hair under a layer of protection.

Avoid harsh shampoo

Another essential hair care tip for Holi is that you should avoid shampooing a day before you play Holi.Shampooing extensively will make your scalp extremely dry, by ridding it of natural oils. So, it is advisable not to shampoo at all, or if you really have to, then it is recommended that you opt for a milder shampoo.


Hydrate

Not many people know that dehydration is one of the most crucial factors that causes hair damage. The harmful colours used during Holi celebrations drains out all the moisture from your scalp leaving your hair dry and damaged. Though this is not a quick fix, increasing your liquid intake will ensure that your hair is sufficiently hydrated.

Don’t use accessories

Using hair accessories like hair ties, or clips can lead to hair breakage, as they put excessive pressure on the hair follicles. Excessive pressure, along with damage from chemical colours can compromise your hair’s health drastically.


Post-Holi Hair Care

Follow post-Holi hair care tips will bring back life to your precious locks after wild celebrations:

Rinse your hair with cold water

Rinsing off the Holi colours is understandably the most important thing that you would want to do post-Holi, and doing it in the right way can make a whole lot of difference. Firstly, wash your hair with plain cold water, followed by mild shampooing. A mild, natural shampoo that is made up of natural ingredients like aloe vera, tree-oils, etc, will inflict the least amount of damage to your already shriveled hair.

Hair mask

Applying hair masks and conditioning your hair well is the next step that you can do to protect your hair post Holi. Conditioning your hair will ensure that they stay hydrated, and a hair mask will rejuvenate and rid them of any damage caused by the harmful chemical colours. Taking a good hair-spa session will also help.

Don’t colour your hair for a while

Hair colour, obviously contains a lot of chemicals, which will be abundant on your scalp after Holi. Thus, avoiding chemical hair colours for at least a month after Holi will prevent any additional chemical damage. However, natural hair colours like henna can be used without much worry.

Split ends

Another essential post-Holi hair care tip is cut off your split ends, as after playing Holi, your hair will be severely damaged by the ends. Thus, cutting off these split ends will help in the healthy growth of your hair from the beneath.

Get rid of the itch

Itchy scalp is a common problem many people face after Holi. If you are also suffering from the same, then there is a quick fix for this problem. In a mug of water, add two-three tablespoon of vinegar. Apply this solution to your hair after washing your hair with cold water, and removing any leftover colours from your scalp and hair.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
