We’re here to teach you all about the heritage story of our iconic, best-seller, the one and only Honey Infused Hair Oil – a natural, bee-derived hair oil that has become a cult favorite in the beauty industry.
The story behind Gisou Hair Oil
The story behind the Honey Infused Hair Oil is rooted in Negin Mirsalehi's family tradition and her passion for natural, sustainable, and effective hair care. Negin grew up with honeybees and their hives as a key part of her childhood, learning all about the benefits of honey from her father, a sixth-generation beekeeper.
A natural, homemade haircare recipe
Negin’s mother, a hairdresser, started experimenting with honey-based haircare recipes, combining different natural ingredients to create hair masks and treatments that would nourish and strengthen her daughter’s hair. She quickly discovered that honey had amazing properties that could deeply hydrate and nourish hair, making it look healthier and shinier.
The start of Gisou
Having grown up with these natural, homemade formulations, Negin decided to turn her passion for honeybees and haircare into a business and founded Gisou in 2015. The first product she launched was the Honey Infused Hair Oil, which was inspired by her family's traditional haircare recipe.
Natural, hydrating ingredients
The Honey Infused Hair Oil is made with a blend of natural ingredients, including honey, coconut oil, almond oil, and argan oil amongst others. These ingredients work together to deeply nourish and hydrate hair, repair split ends, and protect hair from damage.
Sustainably sourced Mirsalehi Honey
But the Honey Infused Hair Oil is more than just a hair product – it's a symbol of Negin's passion and commitment to natural, sustainable, and effective haircare. The Mirsalehi Honey is still sustainably sourced from Negin's family bee garden - the Mirsalehi Bee Garden - in the Netherlands, where they practice ethical and sustainable beekeeping practices.
Here are just a few of the benefits of honey for your hair:
Moisturizes and hydrates
Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture. Applying honey to the hair can help keep it moisturized and hydrated, preventing dryness and breakage.
Softens and smooths
Honey is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help soften and smooth the hair. It can also help reduce frizz and enhance shine, making your hair look healthier and more lustrous.
Nourishes and strengthens
Honey contains amino acids and enzymes that can help nourish and strengthen the hair. This can be especially beneficial for people with damaged or chemically treated hair, as honey can help repair and protect the hair from further damage.
Soothes and calms
Honey has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm the scalp. This can be helpful for people with dandruff or an itchy, irritated scalp.
