It's almost the Holi weekend and we're sure that you're all stoked to be getting some time off from work and college. Even though the pandemic is still on in full force, we don't see why you can't celebrate the festival with a small bunch of people & sending holi wishes over phone after taking all the COVID precautions of course. So, if you're planning to celebrate it with gulaal, pakka rang, and loads of gujiya then these skin and hair care tips will really come in handy.
You know those people who stay pink with permanent colour for many days after Holi? Well, they've probably never tried out this trick. Use a bit of coconut oil on your skin and gently massage it in. It will not only remove the colour more effectively but also moisturise your skin which has been exposed to harsh chemicals throughout the day.
After you oil cleanse use a gentle body scrub to really take out the colour. Use it all over your legs and arms but be sure to not use something as harsh as an apricot scrub. An exfoliating soap or a shower gel with scrub beads works perfectly well.
If you like going the natural way then make a paste of besan (chickpea flour) and milk or apply a generous layer of multani mitti all over. It will help get rid of all the colour and spray paint on your skin and even get that glow going.
Before going in with your shampoo and conditioner, rinse off your hair with plain water first. This will get rid of all the dry colour that's accumulated on your scalp and stop you from using more product than needed. Thoroughly remove all the gulaal from your hair and then move on to your poo treatement.
Hair damage during Holi is eminent so to minimise the effects just make a hair pack by soaking a few methi (fenugreek) seeds in four tbsps of curd. Apply this pack and wash off your hair with a cleansing shampoo after half an hour. You could even apply a mixture of honey and olive oil to deep condition your strands.
Have a fun Holi, guys! Be safe, stay healthy, and have a blast.
