What The Beehive: Rave Reviews On The Benefits Of Bee Pollen In Hair Care?

Bee pollen granulesThe 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.

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

I have been taking Bee Pollen and all it’s proponents off and on for
a while now. Never, ever had any adverse reactions from Day 1. It is a food not a drug.
And not everyone can eat all types of food. I have a relative who could lose her life from the tiniest amount
of fish. But fish is not bad and it doesn’t need a warning for most people. I have a friend who can’t enjoy simple nuts
like pecans, walnuts, etc. No Almond for her hair or scalp. But what gets most people in trouble with natural foods and
products. They don’t follow instructions!!!! and believe Everything they are told with no research of their. I am a Naturalist
So I take No Prescribed Medicines or products period. But I do take Prescribed Herbal supplements and remedies from
a licensed MD. So we should be craving Good Health the hair will come later.

Saw an article yesterday where some doctors was saying bee pollen may not be good for some women. So, I would say be careful.
