Don’t step out with wet hair

Yes, you will be pressed for time and you might actually miss out on air drying your hair or even blow drying it. But this hardly means you can step out with wet hair. Wet hair will only attract pollution and dirt causing hairfall, scalp problems and so much more. So our hair care tip for Diwali would be to find a little time to dry your hair before you step out.

Rely on steam
 

Rely on steam

Pollutants often rob our hair off moisture. To keep this problem at bay and to take your hair care routine seriously during this season, it’s best to opt for a weekly steam. This will not only replenish the moisture but also encourage hair growth. So make sure you pamper your tresses by way of a hot hair towel during the festive season.

Apply a hair mask
 

Apply a hair mask

A hair mask will not only seal in the moisture but also ensure that your hair is armed against pollution. Make a paste of roasted pumpkin, egg yolk and 3 tablespoons of honey. Apply this to your hair and then let the mask sit for 30 minutes and wash off with shampoo and conditioner. Pumpkin contains potassium, which is essential for hair growth while eggs and honey are the perfect conditioners for your angry tresses during Diwali. We promise—using this hair care tip will benefit you in so many ways!
