I have been using the ByErim hair oil religiously every time I wash my hair since I got it on February 4th, 2020.
*this product was gifted but all thoughts are strictly my own*
HOW I use the ByErim oil:
I use the hair oil every time before I wash my hair 2-3 times a week. I keep the oil in either for 1 hour before washing out in the morning or out in before a workout. If I have enough time then I will put it in before going to bed and wash it out the next morning.
THOUGHTS on ByErim oil:
The oil is very easy to wash out and does not feel greasy at all which I LOVE. While working out it does NOT transfer to anything and the biggest win is that it does NOT transfer to my pillowcase when I leave it in overnight (not even to my silk pillowcases). When I wash the oil out and let my hair air dry it has more volume and way less frizz when is saying a lot since I live in South Florida and there is A LOT of humidity here.
INTERVIEW with Erim Kaur of ByErim
How did ByErim come to be?
As some of you may know, I lost my mum when I was 8 years old. Along with that, I lost the opportunity to learn her secrets, traditions and bond with her as I discovered my own. She was known for her long hair (which she sadly lost during chemo) and I always maintained to keep my own hair long as a tribute to her.
I was blessed with my Dhadi (Grandma), who, knowing my hair goal, set it as her mission to concoct the perfect recipe to grow my hair long, strong and shiny like my mum’s. As truly the keeper of all magical remedies – all of which originating from her kitchen – she set to work.
Over the years, we would experiment with different oil combinations and a couple of years ago, we hit gold and found the perfect formula….but I want you all to understand – this isn’t really about me, it’s about my mum, my Grandma and all of you who have the strength and courage to turn something sad into something happy and share it with the world.
What do you think sets ByErim apart?
I have personally used this oil for 10 years. This need and creation of this oil came from wanting beautiful hair. I strongly believe that healthy hair is beautiful hair. ByErim oil is a natural , chemical free , vegan, and a cruelty free formula. ByErim is also not heavily scented and does not have unnecessary harmful chemical ingredients. Every ingredient in the ByErim oil has a purpose and it can all be explained.
How long did it take you from the idea of wanting to do ByErim to eventually being able to launch and sell out?
Why the name ByErim?
The name of the hair oil was always going to be ByErim because of the uniqueness. Erim in Persian actually means heaven.
If there a celebrity you could gift ByErim to test out who would it be and why?
The two celebrities that I would gift ByErim to test out would be Maya Jama (@mayajama) and @fabwmama because I adore them both so much and think they’re super inspirational!
What has been your favorite part of creating and bringing to life ByErim?
My favorite part of creating and bringing ByErim to life is the support I have had. From sitting on the floor in a hotel room with all my girls and packaging the bottles and writing notes to learning we sold out, they have always had my back and been super supportive.
What is something interesting you would like to share about yourself?
Something a lot of people might not know about me is that I used to be a support Martial Arts instructor when I was 16 and I was actually featured on BBC!
What is something interesting you would like to share about ByErim?
Something about ByErim that a lot of people may not know is that ByErim is completely self funded. Everything is done by myself and my Dad , be it marketing, supplies , costs, outreach ,design ,website development, SEO, etc. Eventually, I want ByErim to be sold by major retailers in stores, manifesting this into reality.
Anything fun in the works for ByErim?
ByErim now has a warehouse! Fun fact, the ByErim warehouse also stocks Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors! ByErim is also working of formulating TWO new products that go hand in hand with each other and with the hair oil , which are expected to launch in the next year.
When is the next launch going to be?
The next launch is going to be next week but only for the UK due to current circumstances.
What can we look forward to for ByErim in 2020?
The ByErim line is going to be expanding with some unique products coming!
