Courteney Cox isn’t holding back on Instagram and TikTok. The actress—who turned 60 on June 15—seems to love making her followers laugh and poking a little fun at herself in the process. You might have seen her channeling her Friends character, Monica Geller, by making fun of how her hair reacts to Miami humidity in a May video. Or perhaps you caught her latest Instagram reel, where she steps out of her refrigerator’s freezer to joke about at-home cryotherapy being part of her wellness regimen—and unveiling her $449 red light therapy hat.

“I just had a birthday. Don’t love the number, but look, we have no choice. You just gotta do the best you can,” the Homecourt founder told the camera at the start of the video. The clip begins with her switching between various workout equipment in a black sports bra, leggings, and matching sneakers. But the highlight comes towards the end: the scene cuts to her emerging from the lower half of her industrial-sized fridge’s freezer, clad in a black bikini and sporting a sheet mask while holding the aforementioned baseball cap filled with glowing red LED lights.

“What, it’s cryotherapy?” she quipped at the end of the reel once she successfully emerged from the cramped freezer. (She aptly captioned the video, “🥶💪🏼🥶.”) Hundreds of fans, brands, and fellow celebrities flocked to the comments section to praise Cox’s humor and commend how great she looks. Among them was the brand HigherDose, known for its infrared sauna blankets and products, including the aforementioned hat. “Happy birthday Courteney!” the team wrote. “You’re rocking 60. Love that our red light hat is part of this milestone.”

According to HigherDose’s website, wearing the hat for just ten minutes a day helps boost blood flow to the scalp, “which may lead to decreased hair loss, optimized hair follicle function, and increased growth.” While further research is needed to fully validate its benefits, experts have confirmed that red light can benefit both the skin and hair. For example: New York dermatologist Orit Markowitz, MD previously told NewBeauty that “red light masks have demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties [for skin] while similar wavelengths stimulate hair growth.”
