Suitable for normal to oily scalps, the three-step system helps detox hair and scalp, improving the hair’s strength and elasticity. So, if you live in an area with hard water and must use it to wash off Holi colours, this system is for you. It is also recommended for thin, limp hair types. 

  • Hard Water Shampoo: Made with chelating agents that attach to and remove the metal-ion deposits left by hard water, the shampoo deeply cleanses the hair and scalp and removes any build-up. It also fights hard water-related breakage, lack of volume, flaking and itching, too. In this way, it will effectively wash away Holi colour residues from your hair.
  • Squalene Restorative Conditioner: Made with Olive Squalene obtained from plants, this conditioner controls frizz and brittleness while improving the elasticity and strength of the hair for longer-lasting softness. 
  • Intensive Hair Care Serum: When styling your hair, this serum is a great finishing product to protect it from heat and achieve a lustrous, supple finish free of frizz and tangles.

It works with the shampoo to repel harmful moisture and humidity, giving the hair a long-lasting suppleness, preventing tangles and taming unruly hair.
  • Hair Protection Serum: This serum protects hair against environmental damage caused by humidity, pollution and harsh sun rays. It is also enriched with Argan, Olive Squalene and Baobab seed Oils to reinforce the lipid barrier, making hair less susceptible to damage.

Pre-Holi Hair Care Tips

Before diving into the colourful festivities of Holi, it's essential to prepare your hair with a pre-Holi haircare routine that will create a strong barrier against the harsh effects of colours. By following these hair care tips for Holi before the festivities begin, you can ensure that your hair remains protected and resilient throughout the celebration.

  • Get a Trim

If your hair is already damaged and you struggle with split ends, exposure to the toxins and chemicals in Holi colours will only worsen this damage. This is why getting your hair cut before the festival is a good idea.

  •  Wash Effectively

It’s best to avoid washing your hair a few days before playing Holi. This will ensure your hair’s natural oils don’t get washed away along with the dirt and grime, creating a barrier between your hair and scalp and the chemicals. If you do wash your hair, choose one of the gentle shampoos mentioned above.

  • Use Protective Oils

Before heading out to play Holi, think about applying protective oils to your hair for an extra layer of defence. To make it simpler to wash off the colours later, oils like 100% Pure Argan Oil can help form a barrier between your hair and the colours. Simply apply a generous amount of oil to your hair, focusing on the ends and any exposed areas, to minimise colour absorption.

  • Keep Your Hair Tied

Remember to tie your hair back to reduce the amount of hair exposed to the colours. Put your hair up in a bun or braid it. This is one of the simplest ways to enjoy a worry-free Holi celebration.

  • Cover Your Hair

If you want an extra shield for your hair, consider using a scarf or bandana to protect it from the colours. Simply tie a scarf or bandana around your head to cover your hair completely before joining the Holi festivities.

Post-Holi Hair Care Tips

After the Holi celebrations, it's important to give your hair extra care to help it recover from the colour and potential damage. These post-Holi hair care tips can help your hair return to its healthy state quickly.

  • Rinse Off the Excess Colour

Before shampooing, rinse your hair thoroughly under clean water to remove the upper layers of colour. This will make it easier to cleanse your hair and allow hair care products to penetrate it effectively.

  • Shampoo and Condition

Use one of iluvia's hair care solutions to wash and condition your hair afterward. The shampoo and conditioner combinations will cleanse, repair and protect your hair from any Holi hair-related damage.

  • Apply a Serum

Finish your hair wash routine by applying the Intensive Hair Care Serum or Hair Protection Serum for a final protective layer against environmental stressors.
