How to protect your hair color this Holi
Holi is a festival that is invasive to say the least, if you are all dressed up, hair done and head on then expect some random person to think its ok to throw coloured powder or water on you regardlessly!
Now whilst if you choose to play this game, or celebrate it could be fun however if you have just had a color done it can be a disaster that will take weeks or months to fix!
Now a lot reading this will say there are safe colors, ones that wash out easily and yet even after experiencing this time for the last 10 years have never seen them in action. The reality is the lighter your hair the more the staining will occur, so yes if you have black or dark hair you will not see the pink powder in your hair only maybe on your skin for a few days until you scrub it off!
Imagine you have spent good money getting your color done and a few hours in the Salon and finally your loving your hair only to get it ruined by a random stranger throwing coloured powder on you? How can you prevent it?
Reality would be to stay inside but if thats not an option we suggest the following
- Don’t wash your hair for 2 days prior
- Load up your hair with a wax or paste before heading out, this will help give it a slight protection
- Cover with a scarf and tie it tightly, making sure that the ends are undercover also
- Hairspray over it will also prevent staining to some extent
All of this is not 100% however it may help somewhat but obviously being out of that situation is better than anything listed here!
After the day is over and you are back home, use a clarifying shampoo on DAMP hair not wet, wash it 3 times to remove the color and condition.
If you have been stained and its risking ruining your mojo then give us a call and lets have a look at it to see what can be done!
