The colour will not go after one wash, so don’t worry and stress about it. You need to take care of skin and hair a tad bit extra to keep the after effects of harsh chemicals and colours at bay.

Here are some post Holi skin and hair care tips to get back yourself.

1. Don’t be harsh on your skin. Excessive scrubbing would do a lot of damage. Be gentle and only use mild products to get rid of the colour.
