With rising awareness about the importance of using herbal colours on Holi, we can still never be certain that they are completely healthy for our skin. In addition, constant exposure to the sun, water, and dry colours can damage your skin and scalp, resulting in acne, rough hair with split ends, and even allergies.
Here are some basic post Holi tips for you post-holi you may take to keep your skin and hair safe before and after the Holi celebrations.
Don't be too harsh on your skin
While washing away the Holi stains, be gentle on your skin. Instead of scrubbing, use a wet towel to remove the colours from your skin. To remove the colours from both skin and hair, soak the towel in aloe vera gel or any moisturiser and mix it with a few drops of almond or olive oil.
Getting rid of colour
Avoid using strong soaps and shampoos because they will dry up your skin and hair. Apply aloe vera gel to your skin for immediate relief from chemical reactions. While your skin is still wet, wash it with lukewarm water and moisturise it immediately. This will help to preserve the moisture in your skin and make it nice and supple.
A decent massage will relax your skin and scalp while also releasing tension and exhaustion from your body. Treat yourself to a warm-oil massage or seek professional help. It's a fantastic way to unwind this weekend!
Natural masks for face and scalp
Make your own natural masks to nourish your skin and hair. Masks really help our skin to feel relaxed and refreshing. This will rehydrate your skin and scalp, keeping them healthy and radiant.
Avoid heat styling
Wrap your hair in a clean cotton towel after you've washed it. Soak up excess moisture and let your hair air dry. Avoid using a blow dryer, tongs, or hair straightener for at least one week after Holi.
