Gisou 101: Honey Infused Hair Mask
Launched in 2018, our Gisou Honey Infused Hair Mask has been our community’s favorite treatment for deeply nourished and restored hair. Our Honey Hair Mask is like no other because it’s infused with Mirsalehi Honey, which has moisture attracting properties which help lock in hydration to the hair, resulting in healthy locks.
Our Honey Infused Hair Mask is formulated to hydrate and replenish the hair while improving its elasticity, shine and manageability. It’s suitable for all hair types, and especially beneficial for dry, damaged, or frizzy hair.
How does the Honey Infused Hair Mask work?
Hair masks are made to improve the condition of your hair. Compared to conditioners, hair masks contain more concentrated nourishing ingredients which penetrate deeply into the hair shaft.
The difference between a hair mask and a conditioner
Unlike our Honey Infused Conditioner that is used on freshly washed, wet hair and left in for around 2 minutes, our Honey Hair Mask can stay in your hair much longer (5 minutes up to overnight). It can be used on wet hair, damp hair and dry hair, and is meant to be used once or twice a week as a restorative treatment.
Our multipurpose hair mask can be used in several different ways on wet, damp or dry hair: in the shower, as a deep conditioning treatment and as an overnight treatment.
The benefits of using Gisou Honey Hair Mask for your hair:
- Moisturizes dry hair & scalp
- Reduces hair breakage
- Restores shine
- Improves elasticity
- Strengthens & softens
The key ingredient
Mirsalehi Honey is our signature ingredient, derived from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden. A natural humectant, honey locks in moisture to deeply hydrate, strengthen, and nourish the hair. Rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants to protect and repair damage caused by free radicals.
Honey can also stimulate the growth of skin cells, which could help promote stronger hair follicles and a healthier scalp.
How to use the Honey Infused Hair Mask
After shampooing, apply a generous amount of hair mask onto towel-dried hair from root to tip. Leave in for 5-7 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. For best results, use 1-2 times per week for healthy, shiny and strong hair. Important tip: always apply your hair mask before using a conditioner.
Deeply nourishing honey treatment for hair
For a more intense, overnight treatment, combine the mask with 2-3 drops of the Honey Infused Hair Oil for additional moisture, to damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends. Allow the product to absorb overnight, then rinse thoroughly with cool water. Do this 1-2 times a week for optimal results. This is the perfect treatment for damaged, frizzy, dry and color-treated hair.
Can I use the Honey Infused Hair Mask on dry hair or do I have to wash/wet it first?
You can definitely use the Honey Infused Hair Mask on dry hair. Simply apply a liberal amount to dry hair, leave it on overnight if you desire, and rinse out. You can also apply the mask before doing a workout.
You can also wash your hair with our Honey Infused Hair Wash, apply the Honey Infused Hair Mask (letting it soak 5-7 minutes before rinsing), and follow up with the Honey Infused Conditioner.
To give your hair even more nourishment, you can also treat your hair to Negin’s signature deep treatment by adding a few drops of Honey Infused Hair Oil into your dosage of Honey Infused Hair Mask.
How long is it best to let the Honey Infused Hair Mask sit?
You can let it soak in anywhere from 5-7 minutes, up to overnight! We recommend the following routine: wash your hair with our Honey Infused Hair Wash, apply the Honey Infused Hair Mask (letting it soak 5-7 minutes before rinsing), and follow up with the Honey Infused Conditioner.
If you wish to apply the Gisou Hair Mask on dry hair, before your washing routine, we recommend letting it sit for 15-20 minutes and then washing & conditioning as you normally would. This way, your dry hair has had enough time to absorb all of the nutrients & moisture before you rinse it all out.
Why do you recommend using a conditioner after the Hair Mask?
Washing your hair opens the hair cuticles to cleanse the hair of dirt. The open cuticles present the Honey Infused Hair Mask with the perfect opportunity to deliver its concentrated nourishment of vitamins and minerals. A conditioner helps to lock it all in by closing the cuticles back up and, of course, detangling hair.
