Use these precautions to play a safe and a happy holi this year

With holi being around the corner, it is that dreading time of the year when one is forcefully brought out of the house to drench them in colour and water the extroverts can get their hands on. Whether a fan of holi or not, people have to spend a long duration in the shower to take those colours off the body and hair.

So here is a list of a few things you should and should not do to keep your hair and skin healthy.

Coconut oil

Massage the skin and hair with enough amount of coconut oil or even sarso oil before finally going out to play the festival of colours.


Body lotion

Body lotions and waterproof sunscreen is the best if you fall in the category of people who play with pakka rang. Moisturising the skin and the hair might have never been so important before.

Full face makeup

People might laugh at you but it’ll benefit you later. Putting on makeup will help you get rid of the coloured face easily and without much ado.

Paint those nails

Don’t act immature and put on some nail colour on your nails so that  your nails and the edgings is not left with colours which makes the hands look ugly and untidy.


Wear a bandana

To protect the hair from getting coloured and damaged, wear a bandana. It’ll help the hair in the front from getting damaged and destroyed while you’ll be having fun.

Avoid wearing lenses

Everything used during holi, water, colours, beer, eggs is considered bad for eyes, especially if you’re wearing the lenses. If you want to protect your eyes and not want irritation, better not to wear contact lenses while playing holi.


Proper clothing

Prefer wearing clothes which cover your entire body. If the skin is exposed to the colours, it’ll take you more time to get those colours off the body.

Stay hydrated, ALWAYS

Holi is generally played in the sun, while you’re also sipping on the drinks and exerting yourself. Meanwhile enjoying the festival, it becomes very important to keep oneself hydrated at all times. So don’t forget to keep a water bottle handy.
