Hair care after Holi party? Your hair craves all the post-Holi care as much as your skin does. So, one of the most effective Holi hair care tips is to deeply condition your hair.

Avoid Parlour Sessions Or Makeup

Shower twice 

Another post Holi hair care tip is to shower twice for better results. Once you apply loads of moisturizer to your skin after your first shower, make sure you take a warm shower a couple of hours before going to bed. The moisturizer loosens the pores and gets into it allowing the residue of the colours that have penetrated into the deeper layers of your skin to come off.
