Nourish? Moisturise? We often hear these two terms when we talk about hair and skin health. And what’s more… there’s often confusion.

But what’s the difference? How can you tell them apart? Which should I choose?

In this article, we’ll distinguish the real from the fake, and explore in depth the difference between nutrition and hydration.

Understanding the difference between nourishing and moisturising

Nourishing : Essential Nutrients, focusing on fats and oils

Nourishing means providing your hair and skin with the essential nutrients they need to stay strong, healthy and resilient. Nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids are crucial for maintaining the structural integrity of hair and skin. Hair and skin care products formulated to nourish are often rich in natural ingredients such as avocado oil or shea butter, both of which are full of fatty acids.

For textured hair, which often tends to be drier and more prone to breakage, nutrition through fats is particularly important. Hair treatments rich in nourishing ingredients and fats help to strengthen hair, restore moisture and prevent damage caused by daily handling, styling products and environmental factors.

Moisturising: Restoring moisture balance

Hydration involves restoring and maintaining the moisture balance of hair and skin. Unlike nutrition, which supplies nutrients, hydration aims to supply water and retain moisture. Adequate hydration is essential to prevent dryness, dehydration and roughness of the skin and hair.

For textured hair, which tends to be naturally drier due to its spiral structure that makes it difficult for the scalp’s natural oils to naturally distribute along the strands, moisturising is a key part of an effective skincare routine. Moisturising products often contain ingredients such as glycerine, coconut oil, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, which attract and retain moisture, leaving hair soft, supple and manageable.

Integrate Nutrition and Hydration into Your Skin Care Routine

For healthy hair and skin, it’s essential to incorporate both nourishing and moisturising products into your skincare routine. Start by choosing products formulated specifically for the needs of textured hair, such as the Noireônaturel range. Choose a nourishing shampoo to gently cleanse while preserving natural moisture, followed by a nourishing mask to deeply strengthen and condition hair.

For the skin, use a gentle cleanser followed by a moisturiser rich in nourishing ingredients to seal in moisture and protect the skin barrier. Natural oils such as argan oil and almond oil are also excellent options for deeply nourishing and moisturising the skin.
