My very first bottle of Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil has arrived!! It’s review time! 😉
Ahhhh my luv’s! It seems to me that it’s been a decade since I wanted to share this review with you. But it’s actually just me being impatient (typically me hahah), because if you remember well, it’s only been a little bit more than a month that my luv, Mathew, offered to me the so much wanted honey infused hair oil for my birthday.
I know this is maybe not the product that would need a review, because we all know that its creator, the sublime Negin Mirsalehi, is the most perfect ambassador for her brand. However, since I and many of us don’t have the same hair quality as she has, I thought it could be interesting to share my own experience with this product.
Since it’s not a product I could have judged after having used it once, I took my time to try it correctly and eventually come up with this article that values it at its true value. The first thing I have to say is how much I love the packaging of the bottle itself with its cute pipette – which is very original by the way – and the box in which it’s presented; it’s neat, girly and also kind of luxurious… I’m in love! (Don’t worry, I didn’t need a month to judge the packaging haha.) Now, let’s get to the product itself!
The smell is aaaaa-ma-zing! It’s strong enough to leave a delicious fragrance on your hair, but subtle enough not to be annoying; plus, it doesn’t smell like if an additional scent was added to it, it seems to be the natural scent of the product, which is very pleasant.
As much as we’re talking about a hair oil, the texture isn’t that oily at all. It’s rather a thin texture that is neither greasy on the hands nor on the hair. Therefore, after having applied it, you really don’t feel like your hair is oily – like dirty oily, if you see what I mean haha -, which is obviously really good!
I used the honey infused hair oil in three different ways : before styling my wet hair (every two days) – FYI: I only use a hairdryer to style it -, after having styled my hair (every day) and as a mask during the night to hydrate the hair (about once a week). While using it before styling surely helps protecting the hair from the heat, using the oil after having styled my hair had other great benefits! The first one I noticed is that it leaves my hair smooth and shiny like crazy, two effects that stay all day long. The second benefit it has on my hair is that it gives it volume; it’s written in the cute little pink booklet sent with the product that the oil can make your hair heavier at the beginning and, consequently, make you lose some volume, but I personally didn’t experience this at all. And finally, in addition to the volume, I feel like it really helps my hair find its natural curly shape, which is absolutely not insignificant!
Soooo, the review comes to an end and I think you’ll all have guessed that I’m absolutely in love with this product that I can only recommend! The only question I’m asking myself now is whether it has other long term effects, but only time will tell! *wink*
Hope this review was helpful for you! Let me know if you try this product 😉
Lots of luv’
