Holi is a festival of colors, in the Hindu religion it is a victory of devotion. Holi celebration runs for two days. On the first day, we do prayer in the morning and burn the evils, negative thoughts, etc., in the evening. On the second day, we play with colors, balloons, Gulal, Bhang, Dance, and much more. 

Is Holi Dangerous? 

Holi is a festival that celebrates natural colors in ancient times, but now people use toxic, Unhealthy chemical colors that affect your skin, eyes, and teeth. 

We understand that Holi comes once a year, and everyone plans to play with whom in advance and try to use stronger color so that it comes out after 2-3 days. 

Here are some safety tips to play safe and healthy Holi

1. Hair Care

  • Hair care is very important before playing Holi. Put an ample amount of oil in the scalp so that scalp absorbs the oil well, and color will not sit on your scalp.

  • Tie your hairs, make bun or plaid instead of keeping them open.

  • You can cover your hair with Bandana or scarf.

  • Don’t wait for hair to dry as the color will sit on your scalp after drying; wash your hair in wet condition only. You can use a chemical-free shampoo with the addition of lemon juice as it will work as a conditioner for your hairs.

2. Skin Care

  • Like your hair, put oil or moisturizer on your skin so that color will not sit on your skin.

  • Cover your skin as much as possible; wear full sleeves instead of without or half sleeves. 

  • Cut your nails short and apply a coat of nail paint to protect your nails from catching the color.

  • Sunglasses will safeguard your eyes and nearby skin together with a classy Holi look.

  • Put some cotton in your ears to prevent from colour going inside.

  • Don’t be grinding your skin while removing the colors.

  • You can use gram flour, wheat flour, Rosewater in place of soap, and face wash to remove the colors.

  • Keep your mouth shut tightly when anyone applies color on your face so that color will not go inside your mouth.

  • Moisturize your skin after taking a bath.

3. General precautions keeping Covid 19 in mind

  • Try to make sure no one in the group coming shows signs of cough, cold, or fever.

  • Wash your hands properly before having food.

  • Keep ample distance between playing and food area.

  • Play with dry color Gulal as cold water will increase the chance of catching seasonal flu. 

  • Keep your body hydrated.

  • Keep a first aid kit ready for emergencies.

  • Instead of using chemical colors, go green.

Holi is a fun-loving festival, where people come in a group and play with colors. Some people take advantage also by touching you in your private part. Don’t let anyone harass you in the name of celebration. If you have kids, then don’t let your kids play Holi unattended. In addition, it is better to use Pickari instead of running water to save water.

Happy Holi….
