Today, on March 8th, we’re proud to introduce our new Gisou Honey Infused Scalp Treatment Serum: a lightweight, fast-absorbing, intensive leave-on scalp serum that nourishes, balances and protects the scalp resulting in healthier-looking and shinier hair.
The benefits of a healthy scalp, for your hair
Healthy, shiny, voluminous hair all starts with a healthy scalp. Looking after the skin on your scalp, with the same care and attention you do your face, is vital. When your scalp is healthy and balanced, the results are transformative.
Think of it like our Mirsalehi Bee Garden - to care for our bees, we need flowers for them to pollinate. For those flowers to flourish, they need a healthy bed of soil to nurture their growth.
The same goes for your hair - to achieve healthy, shiny locks, you first need a healthy, balanced scalp. If your scalp is irritated, it can lead to dull, damaged, excessively oily or dry locks. The root cause? An unbalanced scalp microbiome.
What you need to know about your scalp microbiome
Scalp microbiome is the community of natural bacteria and diverse microorganisms living on your scalp. It is crucial to keep your scalp microbiome healthy and in balance in order to prevent scalp irritation and to grow strong, healthy, shiny hair.
Silent inflammation on your scalp?
This is the inflammation that you cannot clearly see or feel, and it’s prevalent on our scalps. It is largely unknown that most of the population suffers from silent inflammation on their scalp, characterised by itching, flaking or oiliness, directly caused by an imbalanced scalp microbiome.
Common scalp concerns
If left uncared for, an out-of-balance scalp microbiome is marked by:
This can have a detrimental effect on your hair, leading to dry, damaged and lacklustre locks.
How to care for your scalp
Caring for your scalp with nourishing products and gentle routines is crucial to create and sustain equilibrium in your microbiome. Like the skin on your face, it needs to be treated with care - harsh, abrasive products or routines will only cause further irritation.
Whether you’ve never experienced scalp irritation or do not know the root cause of your hair-related frustrations, break the cycle by resetting, rebalancing and revitalising from the root and eliminate excessive oil, dryness, irritation, itchiness and flaking. The result? Your healthiest, shiniest hair yet!

Key ingredients for transformative results
Five scalp-targeting natural actives meet sustainably sourced Mirsalehi Ingredients, creating a unique formula which is 99% natural.
Sustainably sourced from our Mirsalehi Bee Garden:

5 scalp-targeting natural actives:
1. Ectoine* - Repairing
A powerful, natural anti-irritant which significantly prevents cell damage and helps hydrate, balance and repair scalp microbiome to reduce dryness, flaking and the appearance of redness.
2. Botanical Complex* - Protecting
Anti-inflammatory blend of Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Sunflower Oil Concentrate & Balloon Vine Extract high in bioactive compounds, Omega 3 & 6 and valuable phytosterols to replenish and protect the skin barrier.
3. Prebiotic Complex* - Balancing

5. Celery Seed Extract* - Comforting

How to use the Honey Infused Scalp Treatment
Use at night on dry hair. Twist the nozzle and apply small amount increments directly onto scalp in 1” (3cm) sections from the hairline to the crown. Gently massage in with fingertips for 5 minutes to distribute and allow the active ingredients to absorb. Leave on overnight. Do not rinse. Shake before use.
If you experience residue or oiliness in the morning, simply wash your hair - this will not impact performance since the active ingredients will have already penetrated your scalp overnight.
- Treatment: To tackle recurring irritation, use twice a week. Move towards weekly application when scalp concerns subside.
- Prevention: Use twice a month to prevent irritation, itching, flaking and improve overall hair health.
Our Scalp Serum is suitable for all scalp and hair types, as well as colour-treated hair.
