The festival of colors, which celebrates the triumph of good over evil, is approaching. Holi is celebrated on the day of the full moon which marks the arrival of spring. Celebrated on March 18, 2022, Holi is the second most important festival in India. The festival is celebrated for two days, Holika Dahan (17th match) and Holi (March 18). On Holika Dahan, people would light bonfires after sunset at the right mahurat. The second day of Holi is called Dhulandi/Dhulendi/Dhuleti/Dhulheti in which people play with colors.
In Holi, we often don’t pay attention to our hair and skin which will be damaged during the festival if not taken care of. Here are some of the tips one can use to protect their skin and hair from Holi.
Having dry and rough skin makes a person prone to color damage. Apply moisturizer or coconut oil and sunscreen to prevent harmful, chemical-filled colors from penetrating deep into the skin. Avoid bleaching for at least a week before and after Holi. In addition, your hair and nails also need care. For the nails, trimming them would be the best option, but in case you don’t want to cut your nails short, applying any nail paint would help a bit.
Avoid playing with synthetic colors
The best way to protect your skin, hair and nails from harmful colors is to avoid playing with synthetic colors. Use readily available natural and plant-based colors. Also avoid paint and metallic or greasy colors, as this can damage your skin in the long run.
Do not rub your skin harshly to remove the color
Avoid scrubbing or scrubbing your face and other body parts during color removal. Use a mild soap to gently remove the colors on your face. Don’t worry if it doesn’t come off in a snap, the colors will fade within 2-3 days. Oil-based cleansers can be used for stubborn stains, but should be avoided for acne-prone and acne-prone skin. Continuous application of moisturizer and oil will remove colors sooner. Avoid medication or any other laser treatment for a week.
Keep your hair well hydrated
Do not wash your hair during Holi or a day before Holi. Trim split ends by having your hair cut before the pre-Holi festivities. Consider tying your Holi hair into a braid or bun before playing with Holi colors. This will prevent excess color from reaching your scalp. Apply oil to your hair so the colors wash out quickly.
