The smell of spring flowers always brings with it the undying spirit of Holi! And of course we all know that though Holi might be super Fun, the aftermath of those chemical colors on your skin is disastrous!
Worry not, this year we have got some hacks to get you through the Festival of Colors. Read on to find out more 🙂
1. Put on your Worst Clothes
The real fun of Holi is enjoyed in last year’s Trashed Clothes! Not only paint, but also eggs, tomatoes and many other flying objects might be thrown at you from all different angles and there’s no way you’ll be able to wash your clothes!
2. Wash, dry, and oil your hair
Many of us avoid washing our hair before going to play Holi, but in reality the pre-dirt already existing in our scalp mixed with the colors damages the hair further more thus making it rougher. So wash and condition your hair well. Then apply significant amount of coconut oil or olive oil in your hair. This will prevent colors from settling down on your scalp.
3. Paint those nails
Holi colors often leave unappealing multi-colored nails. To avoid this, apply double coat of a dark, good-quality nail paint. After playing with colors, just use a nail-paint remover to remove the nail color and your nails will be as good as New!
4. Use kitchen ingredients to wash of color
After you have played colors, prepare a mix of gram flour, honey, and milk and use that as a gentle scrub for face and body. It will easily take the color off your skin, leaving your skin glowing and smooth. For added nourishment, apply fresh aloe vera gel on your body.
5. Deep condition your hair
Ideally, you should do this the same day after playing with colors, as hair tends to get damaged easily with colors. Put two tablespoon of honey in a bowl, and then add two eggs and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Blend the ingredients well. Apply this on hair, and leave it for 40-60 minutes so that it can dry. Wash it off with a mild shampoo and regular conditioner.
So this year try these pre-and-post Holi remedies and don’t shy away from the Colors!
And more importantly, have lots and lots of FUN 🙂
