Gisou is the honey-infused hair care brand that has taken over our social media feeds, showcasing a range of glistening, golden products that utilize the beneficial properties of honey.
The brand is founded by hair care fanatic and social media influencer, Negin Mirsalehi, who drew inspiration from her family's rich history in beekeeping and applied it to her own business venture. Negin grew up helping her father out with his bee farm, which soon sparked her own curiosity and interest into becoming a beekeeper.
Negin's mother, whom was a hairdresser and avid beekeeper, soon discovered how honey could act as a moisturizer for parched hair types. The family spent several years experimenting and mixing the Mirsalehi family honey together with other key ingredients to create the perfect hair care solution which has been used by the family ever since.
Wanting to share this powerful hair care tool with the rest of the world, Negin set about creating Gisou: the hair care brand born from a love of beekeeping.
Today, the brand boasts a selection of nourishing hair care essentials that all utilize the family's homegrown honey. Gisou is committed to caring for the Mirsalehi Honey Bees in the same way my family always has and remains a cruelty-free brand that prioritizes bee welfare and encourages natural behaviour and interaction amongst the bees.
