Tips for getting ready


Our colour is designed to make you as colourful as one can be,
without leaving you a permanent walking rainbow!

Check out some of our helpful tips below created to help you
get clean after a fun day of blasting colour EVERYWHERE!



We want to help make the colour removal easy for you or your participant after the event. All you need to do is make a few preparations before the run begins. Not only will this help with colour removal, but it will also make you a lot more colourful during the event itself. Most parents will agree that the best events for kids are the ones where you can leave all the mess behind!

TIP #1

Want to keep your or your participants skin protected from paint stains and sun exposure? A good sunscreen with moisturizer is an excellent choice to create a barrier and achieve both objectives, ensuring a fun, colourful day outside as well as ensuring that your skin is protected from the sun.

TIP #2

Planning on participating with freshly bleached or lightened hair? Use coconut oil, olive oil or your favourite conditioner to create a barrier. This helps to prevent permanent hair colouration while you participate in a Colour Blast event. Alternatively, to cover your hair, as well as make you look like a rock star, you could wear a multi-coloured afro wig!

TIP #3

All the colour powders we supply to schools and clubs are 100% safe. However, we want to promote safety when participating in both a DIY Colour Blast or HOSTED Colour Blast event. We encourage the participants to wear a hat and use the sunglasses we provide. Not only will you look super groovy, but the sunglasses will also keep your eyes protected from any of the colourful powder floating around.

TIP #4

For those who will bring a mobile phone, keeping your phone protected and fully functional is easy! All you need to do is bring a clip seal bag for all your gadgets. Capture the moment, take great pictures (if your school or club approves), and keep them free from coloured powder. It’s a win-win for you!

TIP #5

To prevent excess colour from spreading around and into your car on your way home after the event, bring a change of clothes or a towel for you or your child to sit on in your car. Another great suggestion is to pack a brush to dust you or your child off before leaving.


Once you arrive home, jump straight into the shower and watch the rainbow flow down the drain.

If you implemented the tips we provided before the Colour Blast fun run, then wash out the conditioner or oil from your hair and skin and let the colour wash off slowly down the drain. We understand that there might be a few hints of colour left behind on your skin/hair. But rest assured that with the mentioned preparation, this will only take a few washes to be eliminated completely.
