How to take care of your hair post-Holi
Now that you have thoroughly enjoyed yourself while playing Holi, it is time to protect your hair from the havoc brought on by the gulal-filled festival.
Trichologist Dr Sonal Shah of Richfeel said that repeated shampooing does more harm as it dries out your scalp and hair completely.
Richfeel advises that people should wash off their hair with plain water so that most of the colour comes off and then wash immediately with a mild shampoo and conditioner.
Then, mix two tablespoons of olive oil with four tablespoons of honey and a few drops of lemon juice and apply this nourishing pack to your hair and scalp, she continued saying.
Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off with a mild shampoo and warm water, she added.
Meanwhile, Rod Anker, Creative Director of Monsoon Salon and Spa and Spa, believes that a regular moisture pack on a weekly basis will certainly restore the sheen in about four weeks - depending on the condition of hair.
For those who have been able to keep damage at bay can simply do with following up with a conditioner diligently after shampooing.
