Use home-made face masks or scrubs to get rid of the colors. This can help nourish the skin from inside, you can continue applying these scrubs until the Holi colors are completely gone.
Choose mild and soap free face cleansers, because they will retain the natural moisture of your skin.
Wash your hair
Shampoo your hair immediately after playing Holi. Remember to condition your hair. If your hair stays dry even after shampoo, then opt for an oil massage or hot towel treatment following day.
