Pre & Post Hair Care for ‘Holi’

leave a comment »

Please note that this article is authored by Parachute Advansed hair oil. If you have read the previous post on hair care during holi, here is a recap.

The joyous, riotous, festival of colours, Holi, is around the corner and you walk the streets in constant apprehension about youngsters pelting you with water balloons from rooftops.

However, you needn’t feel terrorized by colours as knowledge about the damage they can do and how to prevent or tackle minor problems that may arise as a consequence, can put your fears to rest.

The damages

  • Colors in dry or liquid state can cause a condition called ‘acute irritant contact dermatitis’ i.e. rashes and redness, with intense burning and itching in the exposed areas resulting is flaring up existing allergies.
  • Hair having dandruff hair clubbed with colour can worsen the scalp and lead to chronic itching.
  • Hair exposed to colours can become dull, dry and brittle. Accidental ingestion of colours can cause toxicity, as they’re usually prepared from metal oxides like lead.

Prevention is better than a Cure!

  • Use organic colours as a substitute for Holi colours.
  • Apply Coconut based Hair Oil on your scalp which will act as a barrier and prevent colours from directly coming in contact with hair and will lessen the damage.
  • Wear a hair-band/ scarf or a bandana around your head to protect your hair from entangling or damaging due to artificial colours.

Handling the aftermath

  • Remove colours as soon as you’ve finished playing Holi. If colours don’t come off in the first wash, rub warm coconut based hair oil and lemon juice generously over hair, leave for an hour and wash again.
  • Before washing your hair with shampoo a quick massage with coconut based hair oil on scalp and hair length will protect hair from excessive dryness caused by colors.

Our hair, the crowning glory, can get damaged thanks to the synthetic colours that one plays during the colourful festival of Holi. However Parachute Advansed has brought out vital tips for all of you to have beautiful hair all year around. Today we present to you the first in the series of four articles. Hope you enjoy…

Holi Hai!!!

The most anticipated festival of colours is back. The most essential element of Holi is colours – red, green, blue, yellow and many more. Without colours, Holi is meaningless. But these same colours give rise to our woes of harmful skins and damaged hair. Did you know that most colours sold these days contain extremely harmful chemicals? These colours have in them heavy metals, acids and powdered glass and the bases in which these chemicals are mixed are highly toxic.

Did you know?

à Colors in Liquid or dry state can cause irritation and redness of the scalp and skin

à Hair which is exposed to colors can cause itching

à Hair exposed to colors can make hair dull, dry and brittle.

Does that mean that you should not play HOLI; Of course not; HOLI is meant to be the festival of enjoyment— Just a few small precautions can ensure that you take care of your hair during your HOLI celebrations:

Did you know?

  • Wear a hair-band/ scarf or a bandana around your head to protect your hair from entangling or damaging due to artificial colours.
  • Oiling of the hair with coconut based hair oil thoroughly before jumping into the playing arena can go a long way in taking care of this common problem.
  • Post holi, massaging your scalp or a good champi with coconut based hair oil is the best treatment to heal and protect the bounce in your hair.

That’s it; just a few small steps that not only you; but your hair also has an extra happy HOLI!
