How To Remove Holi Color From Skin & Hair

Along with all the balloons, pichkari and gulal, here’s a checklist that you need to add to your shopping list as well to have a tension free Holi

How To Remove Holi Color From Skin & Hair

TIP #1: Avoid facial and threading:

Don’t get facial, threading, or waxing is done 3 -4 days before Holi. These treatments make your skin sensitive and leave your pores open. A freshly treated skin coming in contact with colours might cause irritation and rashes.

TIP: Get waxing done after Holi, a lot of the procedure will help get rid of tannin or any leftover colour.

TIP #2:  Layers of foundation:

Wear makeup to Holi? Hell yeah! But only if you play Holi with dry colours. Put a layer of foundation on your face and neck. It’ll protect your skin from the damage done by colours. However, if you play with water, chances are there that the foundation will come off.

TIP #3: Massage your scalp: 

The harmful toxins present in the dry and wet colours used to play Holi can make your hair dry and frizzy. Oil your hair from the scalp to tip of the hair the night before. Massaging your scalp works phenomenally on your hair. Use any coconut based hair oil or jojoba and castor oil mixed together. Use this mixture to massage your scalp thoroughly. The oil will also act as a  protective covering layer to your hair. It will help to clean your hair easily when you wash off the colours.
