Holi is such a fun festival, full of colours! But what about the damage these vibrant colours do to our skin and hair! These holi colours take away the natural moisture of the skin and make it dry. Your hair also start losing their natural oil and get damaged badly due to the colours. After playing Holi, you need to pay extra attention to your skin and hair so that they retain their natural goodness. When it comes to removing colour from your skin and hair just make sure that you aren’t very harsh. Here are some easy home remedies that will help you get rid of the harmful colours quickly:


Make sure that you don’t rush to shampoo your hair immediately after playing the festival. Take a bowl of curd and apply it all over your hair. Keep this on for around 45 minutes. Then wash your hair with plain water and then shampoo your hair as usual. This will help in removing colour from your hair quickly and it will also reduce all the damage done to your hair.
