Pre Holi Hair Care Tips

Pre Holi Hair Care Tips

1. Oil Your Hair And Scalp

This age-old hack never gets old. Saturating your hair and scalp with oil ensures that those harmful chemicals do not stick and can be washed off easily. Our Onion, Black Seed Oil & Patchouli Hairfall Control Hair Oil is quite lightweight and won’t weigh down your hair. And you can totally rock oily hair in public, with some cool braided hairdos or even by using a scarf or bandana to up the game.

2. Don’t Shampoo

Ironically, this is the time when a greasy scalp will prove to be useful. Shampooing before playing Holi or the night before will cleanse your scalp, and that’s something we don’t want. We want to keep those natural oils intact, which adds a protective layer. Plus, you’ll be applying enough hair oil before you step out, so why bother rinsing?

3. Keep Your Hair Tied Up  

Holi is when you want to let your hair down and have a ton of fun. But, do not take that phrase literally. Keeping your hair open will allow those harmful colours to settle in your scalp, causing damage to your hair. A bun, a braided ponytail, or a fun hairdo (Pinterest in your BFF here) will elevate your look, without the damage. Apply a couple of drops of a nourishing hair serum to your ends to reduce dryness and add some shine. Our Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum for Frizz free hair reduces frizz and offers up to 3x smoother hair.

Post Holi Hair Care Tips

1. Rinse Well 

Once you’re back home, the first thing you gotta do is rinse your hair really well with some lukewarm water. With this step, try to get out as much colour as you can. Do not massage the scalp, but simply drench your hair with enough water so that all that lose colour is out.

2. Use A Sulfate-Free Shampoo 

A paraben and sulfate-free shampoo will take out all the remaining colour and hair oil without drying out your hair. Holi colours can be quite drying, so avoiding these chemicals will prevent further drying and restore moisture in your hair. Based on your hair type, pick your go-to sulfate-free shampoo right here

3. Hair Mask FTW 

It's finally time to give your hair some much-deserved TLC. A hair mask will undo the damage, nourish your hair and blow some life back into your dried-out strands. Our best-selling Argan Oil & Lavender, Paraben Free Smooth & Serene Hair Mask is a 2-minute miracle mask that deeply conditions your hair and pampers each strand to make them smoother and softer. With Argan Oil and 100% organic Coconut Oil, it restores moisture and repairs your hair at a deeper level. Include this hair mask for every third wash for a month as your post-Holi hair care ritual.
