This Holi Spread the Colour of Love and Care

Holi is a great festival of Hindus and is celebrated by playing colours in many regions of the country. People celebrate this colourful festival with their friends and family members by spraying coloured water through pichkaris, eat sweets, visit temples and give blessing to the young ones. Holika Dahan or bonfire is an important event on this day. But the toxins and harsh chemicals of colours and smoke released from bonfires are responsible for causing several health issues like allergies to unknown allergens, bronchitis, cough, nasal irritation, allergies related to respiratory tract illness that trigger the onset of asthmatic attack. These colours are responsible for causing serious damage to the overall health which can be temporary or permanent. Synthetic colours are full of toxic heavy metals like mercury sulphide (red colour), lead oxide (black colour), aluminium bromide (silver colour), copper sulphate (green colour). Due to the contact with the harsh chemicals present in the toxic colours destroyed the texture of hair by making them dry, brittle and rough. Further, these colours also cause scalp irritation, dermatitis, eczema and many more. On this day people used to take bhang or cannabis in eatables and drinks, but this should not be taken in excess because it can cause neurological and psychiatric type of disorders. It increased the blood pressure and heart rate, including several neurological problems. To avoid these health related problems we should celebrate safe Holi.

Points for Celebrating Safe Holi:

  1. Play Holi only in your friend circle and also do care of your friends.
  2. Don’t wear contact lenses while playing Holi.
  3. Only use natural or herbal colours rather than chemical colours.  We cannot say that these colours are safe, but on comparing with the chemical ones these are much safer. These days’ herbal or natural colours are easily available in the market e.g. Turmeric, Heena, arrowroot, kumkum, beetroot, hibiscus flowers, marigold flowers, tea leaves, etc. is used for making natural colours.
  4. Hair oil like coconut, olive, amla and castor should be applied on the scalp before playing Holi and can be immediately washed. This will protect the hair from being damaged.
  5. Before playing Holi applies oils such as sesame, coconut, olive, almond, castor or mustard on all over the body as these oils act as repellents.
  6. Apply lip balm or petroleum jelly for the protection of lips.
  7. For protecting the nails from toxic colours, apply nail paints that must be removed just after playing Holi.
  8. Use a mask during Holika Dahan.
  9. Don’t consume bhang on an empty stomach.
  10. Don’t play with balloons to avoid injuries.
