Happy Holi! How to protect your Hair & Skin during Holi

Celebrate a joyous and colourful Holi with ZUAME! Embrace the Festival Spirit with Confidence: ZUAME by Your Side

Holi, the festival of colours, is a vibrant explosion of joy, laughter, and of course, colour! While the playful throwing of coloured powders is a cherished tradition, it can leave your hair and skin feeling dry, irritated, and yearning for some TLC. But fret not, fellow revelers! With ZUAME's certified organic, Ayurveda-inspired products and a few simple tips, you can embrace the vibrant spirit of Holi while keeping your hair and skin healthy, happy, and glowing.

Pre-Holi Prep: Fortifying Your Natural Defences


  • Oil Up for Protection: A day before Holi, indulge in a luxurious hair oiling session. ZUAME's Deep Nourishing Hair Oil is a powerful blend of Ayurvedic herbs like Bhringraj, Kalonji and Onion.  This oil not only nourishes your scalp and hair but also creates a protective barrier against the drying effects of colors. Gently massage the oil into your scalp and hair lengths, focusing on the ends. Leave it on overnight for maximum benefit.



  • Shield Your Strands: Apply oil to your strands before you go out to play. The Oil will help retain moisture, prevent color from clinging to your hair, and make post-Holi cleansing a breeze. The best hair oil to use for protection from Holi colours is ZUAME’s Deep Nourishing Hair Oil.


  • Braid it Up: Keep your hair styled in a loose braid or bun to minimize the surface area exposed to colours. This simple trick helps reduce colour absorption and makes post-Holi cleanup easier.


  • Hydration is Key: The vibrant colours of Holi can be quite drying for your skin. In the days leading up to the festival, focus on deep hydration. ZUAME's Face Massage Oil is a potent blend of Saffron, Lotus, Rose and Red Sandalwood, known for their hydrating and brightening properties.



Apply a few drops to your cleansed face and massage gently for a radiant and well-hydrated base.

  • Don't Forget the SPF: While you'll be basking in the celebratory spirit, don't underestimate the sun's harsh rays. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher at least 15 minutes before stepping out to play Holi. Reapply sunscreen every two hours for continued protection.
  • Exfoliate Gently (But Not Right Before!): A gentle exfoliation a few days before Holi can remove dead skin cells, allowing for better product absorption and a smoother canvas for colour. However, avoid exfoliating immediately before the festival, as this can leave your skin more susceptible to irritation from the colours. We recommend using the aromatic & sensually uplifting ZUAME Exfoliating Scrub with Chocolate, Coffee & Vanilla to gently exfoliate your skin and get your glow back.


Post-Holi Revival: Restoring Your Natural Radiance


  • Patience is a Virtue: Resist the urge to jump straight into a hot shower. Rinse your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water first to remove loose colour particles.
  • Gentle Cleansing: Opt for a mild, sulfate-free shampoo like ZUAME's Hair Wash Powder Shampoo. This shampoo is formulated with natural cleansers and botanical extracts that effectively remove colour buildup without stripping your hair of its natural oils.



  • Deep Conditioning: After cleansing, treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment. ZUAME's Hair Pack is infused with nourishing ingredients like Argan Oil, Jojoba, Henna, Tulsi, Almond and Avocado. This mask helps revitalize dry, colour-treated hair, leaving it soft, manageable, and radiant.



  • Skip the Heat Styling: Give your hair a break from heat styling tools like blow dryers and straighteners for a few days after Holi. Let your hair air dry naturally or use a diffuser on a low heat setting.


  • Cool it Down: After the revelry, use cool (not cold) water to gently remove excess colour. Avoid using harsh soaps or scrubs, as this can further irritate your skin. You can use ZUAME Bliss Spa Face & Body wash powder to gently wash away the colours while adding nourishment to your skin.



  • Nourish and Soothe: Apply a calming and nourishing moisturizer like ZUAME's Body Butter. This cream is enriched with Lotus, Rose, Saffron, Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil, known for their soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps calm irritation, reduce redness, and restore your skin's natural balance.



  • Hydration from Within: Don't forget to replenish lost fluids from all the fun! Drink plenty of water throughout the day to rehydrate your skin from within.

 Holi is a time for joy, connection, and celebrating the vibrant colours of life. With ZUAME's certified organic, Ayurveda-inspired products and these simple tips, you can approach the festival with confidence, knowing you have everything you need to protect your hair and skin before, during, and after the revelry. So, embrace the colourful spirit of Holi, play with abandon, and let ZUAME's natural goodness nurture your hair and skin back to health.
