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!

Run out of Shampoo? Do you need to change it once in a while?

There is a myth that every second or third bottle of shampoo, you should change as your hair gets used to it and stops working. Its not true, the reality is you may have dry hair ( for example ) and you get some shampoo for dry hair, you use it and take care of your hair, get regular trims etc for the next few months and its starts getting better. Finally its feeling healthy and normal again since all your time and energy went into fixing the disaster it was.

Now the second or third bottle in, you don’t need that shampoo now because your hair is not dry and damaged, so you need to change. If you use the same shampoo its not bad but useless in terms of fixing anything as its not dry and damaged any more, makes sense right?!

Always just check if the products you have are working for you at the moment you get your hair done, maybe it needs changing or maybe its working just fine, filling up bathroom cupboards with products is not what we do, nor should you!

Beautiful comes in all shapes, sizes and stuffed crust!

Do you have a type? yeah I like nice people, attracted to people with a god soul and a great personality, sure aesthetics make for first impressions and help a little but if your a knob, doesn’t make any difference after the first 5 minutes.

Be thankful

Its easy to get lost in day to day life and keep wishing your life away, I will be happy when this or that happens, then when it does there is already another hurdle you have placed before happiness is in your pocket. But imagine if you actually stopped and thought about things for a moment and thought of all the things wonderful that you already have in your life?

At some stage of your life, these things or situation you are in are the exact things you prayed would happen, they did happen, this is your life! Be thankful for them, be thankful for the people who are in your life and live the life you are born to live! Easier said than done sometimes but a little mind training and effort you will see that your life is blessed, situations pass and if its a bad time these too are a blessing and you will get through it.
