It’s that time of year when colours, water and delicious sweetmeats are on everyone’s mind and there’s no better day than Holi to let your hair down and indulge in some fun.
While the festival of colours is all fun and games, harsh chemicals and metal oxides mixed in colours can take a serious toll on your mane. Here are some suggestions from famous hair specialist Jawed Habib that will make sure that you are ready with some serious damage-control remedies.
1. Make sure you apply a good amount of oil 15 minutes before getting into the colours.
The oil can be any basic oil like – coconut, olive or mustard. Avoid blends or special hair growth oils. Oil should not be hot or warm, use it on room temperature only. Hot oil is not very good for hair.
2. Don’t leave your hair open, tie it in a ponytail or make a bun. Open hair soaks more colours and scalp also gets affected when it’s open.
