The festival of Holi, which marks the advent of spring in India and is celebrated with coloured powders and splashing water, is just around the corner.
But amidst all the enthusiasm, one can’t forget that our hair can become dull and lifeless by the blatant use of artificial colours made with the help of chemical solvents and toxic agents.
Why is hair care important?
In previous times, the festival of colours was celebrated with flowers and gulal, but nowadays, Holi colours are prevalent. These colours are mostly synthetic and contain chemicals like lead oxide, copper sulfate, and mercury sulfite that can harm our hair and skin.
In case you are also worried about your hair, then we have got you covered. Simply use these hair care tips to avoid any damage to your luscious locks. The process is a bit time-consuming, but you can play Holi in a carefree manner if you take precautions beforehand.
Follow these pre-Holi hair care tips to maintain your hair’s shine and gloss:
