Double Coat Your Hairs, To Protect

Apply natural henna 2-3 days back of Holi, and wash in regular manner. This will give an extra coating to your strands and then if you oil them before playing colors. Your hairs are safe…. being henna and oil coated.
Protect Your Skin
It’s recommended not to exfoliate your skin before 2-3 days of Holi. And start applying oil before going to bed in night atleast 2 day prior to the festival, Use light oils that are easily absorbed- (Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, Grapeseed, Argan Oil or Sesame Oil etc.) .
So that your upper layer of skin absorbs the oils well. And on the day of the festival apply Heavier Oil (Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Castor Oil) and then then hit the floor. This will prevent the colors to get into your pores with an extra coating of oil.
Protect Your Skin With Aloe-Vera
Apply raw Aloe-Vera pulp all over the skin in morning, let it dry. And before going for the play, apply a layer of Heavy Oil (Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Castor Oil). This will form dual layer and prevent the harmful color getting within your skin pores.
Save Your Nails
Our nails are the really prone, so cover them with a nail paint and top it with a nail lacquer.
Wear A SPF
This is as vital as- water on this tiring day. Because playing with color and water under the sun can give you an extra tanning or make you sun burn prone. So never forger to wear your broad spectrum sunscreen before stepping outside.
Don’t Go For Threading Or Waxing
