Holi, the festival of colors, is a time of cheer and laughter. It’s essential to address the risks of the festival to our hair and skin. As celebrations continue through the month at various venues across the US, let’s prioritize skin and hair care rituals to safeguard and minimize damage.

Oil up for easy removal: Oil acts as a natural resistance to color on skin and hair. Apply a generous amount of natural oil like coconut or almond oil to your body at least an hour before playing Holi. The oil creates a protective barrier, making it easier to remove colors later and preventing them from staining your skin. Additionally, before shampooing apply a generous amount of hair oil for about half an hour. This helps loosen any remaining color particles and nourishes your scalp.

Moisturization and sunscreen for the win: Holi colors can be drying, so prepping your skin with a good moisturizer is key. Whether it is a thick moisturizer or sunscreen, ensure to apply a generous layer, paying special attention to exposed areas like your face, arms, and neck. Ensure you stay well moisturized before and after playing Holi to maintain your skin. Don’t forget about sun protection! Holi celebrations generally take place outdoors, so apply a good quality sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

Extra care for your nails and lips: Protect your nails and lips by applying clear nail polish and a generous layer of lip balm. This shields them from color pigments and prevents staining. After the celebrations, gently cleanse and moisturize for healthy nails and lips, ensuring a fun, and colorful yet stain-free Holi.

TLC for tresses: Use a gentle, color-safe shampoo to remove the color without stripping your hair’s natural oils. Follow up with a deep conditioning mask to restore moisture and manageability, especially after exposure to harsh Holi colors. This routine helps protect and nourish your hair effectively.

Stay sipping: Keeping hydrated throughout the day is crucial. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after Holi to keep your skin plump and healthy. This will also help flush out any toxins from the colors and keep you going through the hot weather of the day.
