Top 5 Holi Haircare Tips to Protect Your Mane with Hair Serum

So, you're gearing up for the vibrant extravaganza that is Holi, huh? Well, get ready to splash some colour and enjoy with your family and friends as you celebrate the Indian festival of colours! But hold up – before you dive headfirst into a rainbow of fun, let's talk haircare like hair masks and hair serum for women. While you may have not had a care in the world as a kid, trust us, you don't want your luscious locks feeling blue (or green, or pink) after all the revelry. 

5 Tips for Holi Haircare 

There are two main problems when it comes to Holi and hair. If you have coloured hair, you will most likely get some more unwanted colour with all those powders and colour balloons being thrown at you. And if you have dry hair, it will most likely end up looking like a decade-used broom as the chemicals strip the natural moisture of your hair.  Don't worry, though – we've got your back (and your mane)! Here are a few quick tips for pre-care and post-care such as a nifty hair serum to keep your tresses looking as fabulous as they were before D-Day. 


1. Hair Oil

A little pre-Holi hair oiling can go a long way in protecting it from the onslaught of colours as it acts as a shield for your hair. Try the Indulekha Bringha Ayurvedic Oil with its potent blend of herbs and oils like bringhraj, amla and coconut oil. Not only will it protect your hair but it will also nourish your scalp and strands, promoting hair growth and health. 


2. Cover Up

Covering up your hair during Holi is the best way to keep the colours off your mane and makes post-festival cleanup easier. Embrace white scarves or bandanas to keep your look stylish and your hair safe throughout the festivities! 


3. Hair Mask

But after the festivities, don’t forget to uncover and treat your locks to some much-needed pampering. Consider applying a hair mask for 30 to 45 minutes to deeply condition and repair any damage caused by the colours. It will also make sure the Holi colours fade faster than usual. 

For dry and brittle hair, try the Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender, Paraben Free Smooth & Serene Hair Mask which is free of harsh chemicals. If you already have damaged hair, The Dove 10 in 1 Deep Repair Treatment Hair Mask with its bio-protein formula is a must-have to repair your tresses, leaving it colour-free and healthy. 


4. Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner

When it's time to wash away the colours, opt for a gentle shampoo and conditioner combo like Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to cleanse without stripping away essential moisture. Otherwise, you can go with the sulphate-free Tresemmé Pro Pure Damage Recovery range which provides intense nourishment and repair. 


5. Hair Serum

Once your hair is washed and cleaned, seal in the moisture with a hair serum. The Tresemmé Keratin Repair Bond Plex Oil Hair Serum uses high-tech to repair and protect your hair from future damage, leaving it strong and resilient. Alternatively, there is also the chemical-free Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum which is infused with natural argan oil and lavender for a soothing fragrance. This hair serum for women smoothens your dry hair and tames all that frizz you must be experiencing after Holi.

FAQs on Holi Haircare

Q1. Is Holi colour bad for hair? 

While gulal and haldi were used in the previous decades, to create more diverse and glittering colours, we have new innovations. However, these most of the time have quite a few chemicals. While people are becoming more aware and using organic and natural colours, many still use chemical ones which may not be safe for your hair or your skin. 

Q2. Which hairstyle is best for Holi? 

Opt for styles that keep your hair off your face and neck, such as a sleek bun, high ponytail or braided updo. Simply add a touch of hair serum to keep them shielded and in place. These styles not only look chic but also provide protection from the colours and make post-Holi cleanup a breeze. 

Q3. Why do some people wash their hair before Holi? 

The conditioner forms a shield around your hair, much like oil. However, this is mostly suggested for those who have done chemical hair treatments like dyeing, keratin or botox. If you haven’t done anything to your hair, you can simply apply oil before playing Holi. 

And there you have it; 5 easy and effective haircare tips such as which hair serum to use and how long to keep a hair mask after a colourful celebration. So no more excuses for ditching, go ahead and have some fun this Holi!
