The hair care community and more so the beauty industry keep us in the know as it relates to doling out the information that we depend on to maintain our glam.
There is such a wide selection to choose from when considering products that will help you achieve your ideal look.
We know that for black women long hair doesn’t usually magically sprout from the top of our heads. It’s a process that we must actively assist by being good about sticking to our regimens.
Still, since it is a known fact that a healthy body will turn out the best results, many of us have decided to eat our way to healthy hair and supplement with multivitamins to fill in the gaps where we fall short.
Perhaps this is why a portion of the hair community has been singing the praises of one of the top ten super-foods; bee pollen.
Bee pollen is the latest craze in the so called “super-foods” group (when you think of it though many of these super-foods are not food in the real sense of the word).
Sure enough, some theories out there leave you with a question mark floating over your head since some of the claims seem so erroneous. Yet this bee pollen thing seems to be worth a closer look.
What Is Bee Pollen Exactly?
It is actually pollen from flowers that accumulates on the body of the honeybee as it enters the plant to get to the nectar.
This is then extracted from the body of the bees as they enter the hive or by some other means. It is packaged in it’s natural state as granules or made into a pill form for commercial purposes. Bee pollen is all natural and cannot be synthesized in a lab.
Benefits Of Bee Pollen
With that said, apparently bee pollen is one perfect food that addresses weight loss issues, vitality, aging and hair growth. I decided to investigate this super-food to figure out why there is such a buzz about the benefits of bee pollen in hair care specifically.
Bee pollen is classified as a super-food because it is said to provide all the enzymes and co-enzymes that feed the cells and cause them to regenerate. The effect of this? Healthy glowing skin and thriving hair.
