Healthy Moisturizing Hair Care Tips

Winter can be a harsh time for our hair, with dry air, harsh winds, and frequent heat styling all taking their toll. But fear not! COCOTIQUE’s self-care beauty boxes are a great way to discover new products to help you adjust your hair care routine so, you can combat the winter blues and keep your hair moisturized and healthy. 

Creating a good hair care routine starts with understanding your hair type and its specific needs. Once you know that, you can tailor your routine to address those needs and achieve your desired results. Here's a few tips to get you started:


  1. Understand your hair type:
  • Fine or thin hair: Prone to oiliness and limpness. Needs volumizing and lightweight products.

  • Thick or coarse hair: Can be dry and prone to frizz. Needs moisturizing and detangling products.

  • Curly or coily hair: Needs extra moisture and gentle handling to prevent breakage. Look for products made with dead sea minerals.
  • Dry or damaged hair: Needs intense hydration and repair. Look for hot oil treatments, deep conditioners, and masks that are made with nourishing ingredients like, jojoba oil, argan oil, shea butter, and ceramides.
  • Colored hair: Needs color-safe products to prevent fading and protect against damage.


  1. Choose the right products:
  • Shampoo: Look for a sulfate-free shampoo that is gentle on your scalp and hair. If you have oily hair, you may need to shampoo more often than if you have dry hair.
  • Conditioner: Use a conditioner that is tailored to your hair type. Apply it to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the roots.
  • Deep conditioner: Use a deep conditioner once a week for extra moisture and nourishment
  • Styling products: Choose styling products that are designed for your hair type and desired style. For example, enhance your curls and control frizz, use a moisturizing leave-in


  1. Wash your hair properly:
  • Don't wash your hair too often. Over washing can strip your hair of its natural oils and leave it dry and brittle. 
  • Use lukewarm water, as hot water can damage your hair. 
  • Your scalp is very important. Growth serums and anti-itch serums are excellent for maintaining a healthy scalp. It’s also important to massage your scalp gently with your fingertips when washing your hair to stimulate blood circulation and loosen dirt and buildup.
  • Apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the roots. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.


  1. Dry your hair carefully:
  • Try a Frizz-Free Hair Drying Tee to absorb the water from your hair after washing instead of a harsh cotton towel. The special wicking fabric is safe for all hair types. Don't rub your hair, as this can cause frizz and breakage.
  • If you use a hairdryer, use it on the lowest heat setting and diffuse the heat.


  1. Style your hair gently:
  • Avoid using harsh styling tools, such as hot irons and curling irons. If you must use them, use a heat protectant spray first.
  • Using a detangler brush is best when working through wet hair. Start at the ends and work your way up to the roots.
  • Don't go to bed with wet hair, as this can cause breakage.


Additional tips:

  • Get regular trims to remove split ends.
  • Protect your hair from the sun with a hat or leave-in conditioner with SPF.
  • Eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
