Here are some easy tips to be followed to take protect your hair before the colour game begins.

Massaging works wonders on your hair. It is very important to massage your scalp thoroughly with coconut-based oil before you step into the Holi celebrations. Coconut-based hair oil gives the protective covering layer to your hair, which then helps you to wash off the colours from your hair with ease

Adding few drops of lemon to the oil and applying it on your hair helps in keeping the toxins found in colours at bay. This is really helpful for those who have a sensitive scalp.

It is advisable to apply root mask to your hair which will help your hair and scalp from dryness. The mask helps in regaining the texture and shines to your hair post the Holi party ends.

If you have long hair, ensure that you tie it up so that the colour stains are splashed only in lesser areas. It is preferable to make a braid instead of ponytail as it helps in keeping your hair together causing lesser damage with the colours.

Make sure you get rid of the split ends before the colours are all over your hair. These colours make your hair dry, causing more split ends.
