HOLI SPECIAL BEAUTY TIPS! Vidya Balan, Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor advice on the dos and donts for Holi

Holi Beauty Mantra

Vidya Balan: “I don’t leave my house without massaging a Coconut-based Hair Oil onto my skin. I honestly feel that this is the most natural way to keep harmful colours away. Not just that, colour come off easy and the coconut based oil protects my skin from sun rays when I step outside! We make sure all the colours we use on Holi are organic. My mother always applies a Coconut-based Hair Oil onto our scalp & hair too. We realized that using a oil on hair works better to help those colours come off and acts a as protective layer between our hair and the colors.”

Shraddha Kapoor: “I have very sensitive skin so I make sure that I am well protected. I start by applying a good amount of oil to my skin. I leave it in for 20 minutes and then apply another layer. When I have played Holi in the past, my mum would always make sure that she thoroughly oiled my hair trusting the fact that when I would be home after, a lot of colour being put in my hair, the color would come of easily. She believed in oiling my hair and whenever I will play Holi, I always will do that. It’s a very understood practice in our home. I think every mother tells their child Betaa tel laga ke jana Holi khel rahe ho, baalo pe naa lag jaye, colour aasani se nikal jayega so all these things are mothers nuskas which are very helpful. I prefer fruit oil as it very nourishing for hair”

Kriti Sanon: “It’s always been a ritual in my family to apply a Coconut-based hair oil to the skin before going out to play Holi. We use this combination because it is lighter and smells festive. I have heard that Coconut Oil has its own SPF so I am always well protected from the harsh sun. I apply the same Coconut-based hair oil combination to my hair to protect it from the harsh sunlight and colours. My mom showed me how to massage oil in the right way—in circular motions and by pulling the scalp upwards with the tips of your fingers. I remember my mother asking both me and my sister to apply a coconut-based hair oil generously on our hair before we went out to play with colours. This is something I follow even now, as colours can strip your hair of their natural moisture and make them dry. So Coconut- Oil always does the trick and the best ingredient to use for Holi. It’s multipurpose.”

Holi Hairstyle

Vidya Balan: I am very particular about my hair. Before I step out, it needs to look great. Even with oil! I massage a Coconut-based hair oil into my hair, comb it well and then tie it in a loose braid. This way I am able to keep my hair away from my face and just enjoy the festival

Shraddha Kapoor “I always leave my hair open on Holi. I just twirl the sides of my hair to give it a fun look. Before I create this style, I take a generous amount of fruit infused oil and apply it to my hair, it helps protect my hair from the harsh holi colours.”

Kriti Sanon: “The half bun is my favourite Holi hairstyle because it is quick and keeps my hair in place. I start off by applying a good amount of Coconut-based Hair Oil to my hair. Then all I do is tie up the top part into a bun and let the rest of the hair fall naturally. I am going to sport it this year and be Holi-Selfie ready.”

Holi Memory

HOLI SPECIAL BEAUTY TIPS! Vidya Balan, Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor advice on the dos and donts for Holi

Vidya Balan: Even before the main day, all the kids in my neighborhood would start throwing balloons at each other after school. The night before Holi, my father would painstakingly fill the balloons so we could run out with buckets full of balloons the next morning

Shraddha Kapoor: “As a child, my brother, me and all our cousins would wake up early in the morning and fill at least a hundred small balloons with coloured water to throw at people on the streets and in our area. I also remember that my father used to apply fresh fruit hair packs during Holi time. Now I just use fruit oils available in market. They come goodness of multiple fruits such as Olives and Green Apple that nourish my hair and give them an amazing fragrance. And Holi is definitely about being with family and close friends for me,” the Bollywood diva reminisces.”

Kriti Sanon: “As a ritual, on the night before Holi, I would sit on the kitchen counter and help my mother make a vessel-full of Thandai paste. The kitchen would always be filled with aromas of roses, spices and nuts, and of course Holi is about getting out there and having lots of fun with family and friends,”

Holi Dish

Vidya Balan: While most people eat ghujiyas for Holi, my sister Priya would drive up to Sattu’s in Sindhi camp (Chembur) & get Imarti. I grew up eating them every year during holi and now Holi is incomplete without it! It’s become a ritual to gorge on them. When you are fully wet and unrecognizable, it tastes the best

Shraddha Kapoor: “Holi is a time when my entire family comes together to eat good food and have a blast. I love jalebis and I’m always the first in the line to eat them.”

Kriti Sanon: “That one Holi dish that makes my mouth water is hot gujiyas washed down with cool Thandai. Having hot food while playing Holi hard just makes it complete for me.”

Favourite Holi Colours

Vidya Balan: Gulal! What else? We buy loads and loads of it and play majorly with gulal but love other colours too…waise bhi, what’s holi without a rain of colours

Shraddha Kapoor: “Even though purple is my favourite colour, I always attack with whacky colours like neon orange or yellow.”

Kriti Sanon: “My fashion colour for Holi is WHITE! This is of course just so that she can show off how much she has played. But otherwise, Blue or green! On Holi, I prefer wearing a white shirt or a white kurta so that all the colours stand out and everyone knows how much I have played. I specifically love blue and green as they stand out and look so wonderful when thrown on somebody.”
