Holi Hair Care: Foolproof tips to take care of your hair extensions and natural tresses from the colours

Holi is a festival of colours, water balloons, gujiyas, bhang, and freedom celebrated not only by Indians but also by people all over the world for pure colour craziness. However, as enjoyable as it is to play with colours, there is a risk of having low-grade colours applied to you, which can cause your scalp to dry out and your roots to become fragile, resulting in hair problems. They are the easiest to get dirty and the most difficult to clean. Don’t you think so? 

The colours used during the festival have chemical content and can be excessively fierce on your hair. Because it is next to impossible to dodge the colour play and have fun, the best one can do is follow some easy tips to stay protected before and after the celebrations. It’s always a good idea to have organic natural colours on hand; you’ll be safe and careful without surrendering the fun!

So, before you go out armed with your colours and are ready to attack, make sure you first take care of your hair. These simple steps will show you how to do it.

 

 

  • Oil your hair thoroughly with either coconut or olive oil to keep the texture of your hair untouched and to make it easier to wash afterwards. Covering your hair with a scarf or bandana is an even better alternative.
  • After the celebration, thoroughly cleanse and condition your hair. After 2-3 days, apply a hair mask to treat the damage done to your hair texture.
  • If you have coloured hair or highlights, take extra precautions because the colours may bleach your hair.

 

If you desire to play Holi with your hair extensions clipped in, follow the steps below to keep their quality after playing Holi:  

Brush your extensions

Brushing out your extensions before getting them wet is the first, and arguably most important, step. This reduces the likelihood of tangling while washing your hair and afterwards.

Prepare your sink

Make sure your sink is clean, plug the drain, and fill it halfway with lukewarm water – we don’t want the water to be too hot or cold. Using 2-3 pumps or a small handful of shampoo, squirt it into the water and swirl it around to adequately distribute the substance.

Shampoo each weft

Before and after shampooing, we recommend using a moisturizing sulfate-free and alcohol-free conditioner. To co-wash your extensions, you can even skip the shampoo and just use the conditioner!

Condition each weft

It’s time to condition the wefts after they’ve been shampooed. Apply a good amount of conditioner from the top to bottom to each weft, rubbing the product into the hair thoroughly. Leave on for 5-10 minutes before carefully rinsing each weft.

Apply a deep conditioner or hair mask

 

 

This step is essential for keeping your hair extensions nice and moisturized. Take a fair amount of the hair mask and work it into each weft from top to bottom, just like your conditioner. Bundle and carefully coil your extensions before placing them in a shower cap to allow the product to soak in and work its magic overnight.

Rinse out each weft

Rinse each weft completely the next morning, making sure there is no conditioner residue on the hair.

Air dry your extensions

Begin by gently squeezing any excess water from the extensions, taking care not to rub them dry with a towel. We recommend air-drying your extensions whenever possible
