She founded the brand Gisou and the first product she created was Honey Infused Hair Oil. It is a hair oil enriched with a key ingredient : honey from the Mirsalehi bee garden.

Honey is rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. The propolis the bees use to reinforce their home is known for its strengthening and preservative properties. Thus it is ideal for strengthening and protecting the hair.

The only downside is the price.. It costs $84 in the US and 74 euros in Europe. I think it does last a year so it does last a long time for the price. However, not everyone has the money to buy it.

So one day, after going on Gisou website, I noticed that I already had the ingredients in my bathroom. So why not try it out?

You’ll need :

– an empty dropper bottler (that you can easily find off amazon)

– Honey (100 % natural, it’s even better if you know a beekeeper 😉 )

– Coconut oil

– Almond oil

– A bowl

Steps :

1. Start with 4 tablespoon of honey (change the quantities according to the size of your dropper bottle; mine was a medium)

2. Then add 1 or 2 teaspoon of coconut and almond oil until the consistency is liquid enough.

3. Put the finished mix in the dropper bottle and ta-da you have a perfect hair oil.

Uses :

1. You can use it as a hair mask by adding one or two drops of the mix to your hair conditioner;

2. Or as an overnight treatment by covering your hair with the mix and putting them in a towel for the night;

2. You can also use it before drying your hair or styling them with two drops,

3. And last, my personal favorite, you can use it as the final touch of your hair routine, after straightening or curling them.

I have been using this DIY hair oil for about two months and I absolutely love how my hair feels and looks. It’s more shiny and hydrated than it has ever been. Despite this DIY version, I still want to buy Negin’s oil to try it out, and the packaging is just so shelf-worthy (haha aesthetic is everything).

I hope you guys enjoyed this little tutorial, don’t hesitate to tell me how your oil turned out and if you have the real one, how much you like it!
