Can I Prevent the Color from Staining my Hair?
The short answer is yes, mostly. Like I mentioned, everyone's having a great time until their hair is stained and you're elbows deep in your hair stylist's chair praying that you won't have to show up to work looking like you spent the weekend at a clown convention.
Some hair stains easier than others. The lighter and more processed your hair is, the more likely it is to stain. So, if you color your hair blond, you'll want to pay the most attention.
Fine hair tends to stain easier than course hair. If your hair is porous, dry, or otherwise any color lighter than dark brown, the chances that your hair will stain is greater. A couple of deep conditioning treatments before your race will also lesson the chances of staining after.
To completely prevent your hair from staining, I would recommend pulling your hair back tight and wear a hat or a bandana that covers your hair completely. A wig could also be fun for a color run.
If you're not as concerned or are willing to throw a little caution to the wind, you can apply a heavy moisturizer or oil to your hair before your run. Wet your hair and liberally apply a heavy conditioner, olive oil, or coconut oil to your hair. Some people get by with applying a leave in conditioner as well. The more concerned you are with your hair staining, or if your hair is very light or highlighted, I would recommend a heavier oil/moisturizer. Brush it through to make sure it's evenly distributed. Yes, your hair will look greasy. A pony tail or a bun will help mask the greasiness.
After the race, rinse your hair very very well in cool water until the water runs clear, and then shampoo your hair well. Allow the shampoo to sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing. Hopefully the oil will have created a barrier between your hair and the dye, plus you'll have a nice moisturizing treatment, and super soft hair after the race.

We often get questions regarding color removal. Natural and synthetic colorants can stain fabric, hair and skin. For best results, remove excess Celebration Powder before applying water and soap. We recommend the use of leaf blowers or other compressed air devices to assist in the removal of Celebration Powder. You may want to consider using large cloth tarps to cover paved areas. Normal liquid dish soap and/or degreaser can be used to clean paved areas. Power washers will also assist in cleaning paved areas. Baby wipes are good choice for skin. Celebration Powder can be removed from clothes with the use of normal detergent and stain remover.
What happens to my hair?
Holi colors are washed out easily from your hair in most cases, so no need to worry. But blondes have to watch out espacially, since the structure of bleached hair is damaged. So its likely that small particles of Holi powder sink into the damaged hair structure. Preparing your hair with hair oil is highly recommended if you want to avoid stained hair. But still, if your hair should sustain Holi coloring there are several ways to treat it. You can use anti-dandruff shampoo or treat your hair with olive oil mixed with citric acid, then rinse it off with aspirin tablets dissolved in water. Also we suggest using deep-cleaning shampoo and getting decoloration from your trusted hairdresser. Please note that we do not take any liability for colored hair as it is due to damaged hair structure through bleaching.
