The making of the Honey Infused Hair Oil
“When Mom came to the Netherlands thirty years ago, she was training to become a hairdresser. Unimpressed with the beauty products available back then, one of the first things she did was experimenting with her own haircare solutions. She set about developing her own formula, using as many natural ingredients as possible.
One thing she knew for sure: Dad’s honey was going to be the key ingredient. As a beekeeper’s wife, she had discovered the benefits of honey for overall health and learned how its moisturising and softening properties work wonders on our hair.
After several years, she succeeded in creating the perfect Mirsalehi Honey infused haircare formula the whole family would enjoy.” - Negin Mirsalehi, Gisou Founder
What’s In Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil?
Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil is our iconic hair oil enriched with Mirsalehi Honey sustainably sourced from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden. It also contains our proprietary oil blend of high-quality cold-pressed botanical oils.
Here’s a deeper look at the ingredients in our honey hair oil and how they benefit your hair.
Mirsalehi Honey: The Key Ingredient
First things first, let’s dive deeper into the key ingredient of our Honey Hair Oil, and what it does for your hair. Our hair oil is infused with sustainably sourced honey, directly from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, where Negin Mirsalehi and her dad continue the six-generation family tradition of beekeeping.
From vitamins and minerals to amino acids and antioxidants, honey contains a powerhouse of nutrients for healthier hair. It is also a natural humectant that helps to maintain the hair’s natural moisture balance. Using honey oil for hair regularly will result in stronger, smoother, conditioned hair that’s more resistant to breakage and split-ends, allowing it to grow longer over time.
Cold-Pressed Botanical Oils
Next to Mirsalehi Honey, our Honey Infused Hair Oil contains our proprietary blend of cold-pressed botanical oils.
- Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A, B, D, and E plus minerals like zinc, iron, magnesium, and calcium. It also contains a high concentration of fatty acids that easily penetrate the hair shaft to protect, strengthen and moisturise the hair.
- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a natural emollient that’s also rich in lauric acid and other fatty acids that help to prevent protein loss, condition the hair, tame frizz, and add shine.
- Argan Oil: Argan oil is a natural emollient that draws and retains moisture.
- Passionflower Seed Oil: Also known as Maracuja oil, passionflower seed oil is rich in omega-6 and other fatty acids to moisturize and condition dry hair.
How to Use Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil
There are multiple ways in which you can use the Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil, depending on your hair type, preferences and how much nourishment your hair needs. Experiment and find what works best for your hair type and texture!
You may wonder how many drops of hair oil you should use for your hair type. We recommend 1-2 drops for fine hair, 2-3 for medium hair, and 3-4 for thick hair. For general application, warm up the product between your palms and fingers. Then, apply the product using your fingers in combing motions to distribute the product evenly.
1. After Washing
Apply the Hair Oil on damp or towel-dried hair after washing with Honey Infused Hair Wash, to allow for better absorption, and to lock in moisture. This will help prevent any frizz when blow-drying or air drying your hair.
2. As a Finishing Touch
Use the Honey Infused Hair Oil as a last step in your styling routine to tame any flyaways and add shine to your hair. Thanks to its dry-oil properties, the hair oil will not leave your hair feeling greasy or heavy. For curly hair types, the hair oil is perfect for defining your curls and eliminating any frizz.
3. In Between Washes
Whenever your hair is looking a little dull in between washes, use a couple of drops of hair oil to revive your locks! We recommend using it on the drier parts of your hair from the mid-lengths .
Be sure to use only 1 to 2 drops and warm the product up in your hands for maximum effect. If you're looking to achieve a sleek hairstyle or updo, use the hair oil as a last step to smooth out flyaways and add extra shine.
4. As an Overnight Treatment
The Honey Infused Hair Oil can be used as an overnight deep treatment. Simply section your hair into 2 sections then take 1 full syringe for each section and fully coat the hair. Braid your hair and let it absorb for a few hours or overnight.
5. As a Deep Treatment Mask
Infuse your hair with a double dose of nutrient-rich honey for intense nourishment that goes deep to the core of the scalp and hair follicles. Add a few drops of the Honey Infused Hair Oil to the Honey Infused Hair Mask whenever hair is in need of intense repair and rejuvenation.
Use this mask combo on wet hair after shampooing and leave it in for 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, apply to dry hair and leave in 15-20 minutes or overnight before washing and conditioning as you normally would. Your hair will feel softer, stronger, and healthier!
