Holi packs are big this season and I like Kama Ayurveda’s spin with a thoughtfully curated pack this Holi .
Holi, the Indian festival of colours ( for my international followers ) heralds the onset of spring. Thanks to the generous throw of coloured powders of uncertain provenance and dunkings in tubs of coloured water, it also signals mayhem for hair and skin .
Ok, mayhem may be too strong a word but I remember a particularly awful episode with silver paint that refused to scrub off and hair that had a ghastly yellow colour that took a couple of washes to fade . Was that the year I had purple teeth as well ? Hmm …A friend developed an awful rash that lasted a week thanks to fake colours . I am sure many of you have had similar stories so playing safe is essential.
This gift is timely. A packet of organic colour made from pressed temple flowers, cold pressed coconut oil to massage into your hair before going out to play , Jwalini face and body oil for re-texturising skin after all the colour gets scrubbed off, Bringhadi intensive hair treatment , Mridul non soap cleanser, and then a delicious smelling lavender and patchouli body wash .
Nice one Kama ! Happy Holi !
