Bee Mine product reviews

I know that there is a thread here somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Has anyone tried the shampoo? conditioner? hair milk? hair moisturizer?

Thinking about getting samples and the oil free growth serum.

    I have a couple vids up on the Bee Mine products. I love everything accept the conditioner. It has to much protein in it for my hair and my hair hates avocado so that conditioner is a no go but the milk, curly butter and moisturizer are awesome.

    I bought the moisturizer, curly butter, and the moisturizing spritz. I haven't tried the curly butter yet but I like the moisturizer and the moisturizing spritz. The only drawback to the spritz is the smell, it doesn't smell the greatest.

    thanks everyone. I've decided against trying her stuff because her shipping is too much. I get really pissed off when you can send priority mail flat rate for 4.95 and you charge 11.95! That's BS. I'm going to start complaining to companies about their high shipping rates. Maybe if we all start voicing our displeasure, they will get the message and lower their rates.

    I agree with this, they jack up the shipping prices so they can make extra money. I especailly notice this with companies that sell their products at a cheaper price. Like with Afroveda, my stuff could've been sent in a flat rate box for $10.95 but instead I get charged almost $16 for shipping.

    Dammit another ntaural line to try!!! Good thing they're not on the ground! I agree LTS- high shipping in unacceptable. I will turn a product down b/c of that BS. There was a time when I really wanted to try Komaza but the shipping was too high. After I researched the ingredients, I decided against them anyway. But that really bothered me.

    How did u originally find out about Bee Mine?

    youtube video reviews. And I am now allergic to Afroveda shikakai oil so I was looking for a non-oil hair growth serum. I may still try that but not her other stuff. Besides I realized that her conditioner does not have my favorite ingredient, BMTS. without that my hair does not detangle.

    Do you mean the small flat rate box? That box is tiny! Most hair products won't fit in that box, but she could use the medium flat rate box.

    Oh ok...interesting. I had great results with Darcy's detangling milk and it has BTMS.

    The medium flat rate starts around $11-$12 so she would still be paying around the same amount for her shipping. You could contact her and ask if she could ship by Parcel instead of priority. It will save you some money on shipping but take a little longer.

    How is her oil free serum working for you? Does your head stil itch when you use it? That concerns me. Did you try the spritz yet?

    Yea, I felt the same way about shipping rates; I thought they were all way too high and I was getting ripped off. However, my mom ships me stuff a lot, and every time she does I have to hear about how Priority Mail rates for boxes now start at like, $9-10. If you live further away from the shipper it's also going to be more, and most of my products end up being shipped across the country.

    Well the owner lives in the county next to me and every order that I have done(5 now) has cost me 5.50-6.50 depending on how much I buy. Qhemet lives in the same county and if I wanted that shipped it was the same price.

    But either way maybe ask if there's other options.....she's obviously willing to do what she can for her customers.

    Where the oil free serum on the website?

    I agree about shipping. I have $38 in my shopping cart at Komaza. By the time they add tax (I'm in CA) and shipping it was going to be $54. Umm. No. 50% of my product price in shipping and tax? It was like $12 for shipping...you can ship priority to me for $6 tops (no flat rate needed). Instate rates are cheap. I just shipped 3 lbs to someone by L.A. and it was $5.81 total. So that $12? YES if it's going cross country in a flat rate..otherwise if you use paypal shipping its cheaper. If you go to the post office its way expensive.

    It itches for like the first 5 minutes then it stops. Remmber that I have a scalp condiiton so that could very well just be how my scalp is reacting ot it. I like the serum though!

    Has anyone else noticed that all her shampoos have either sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide in it? Why would that be in a natural hair care product? These are the main ingredients in relaxers, right?

    Her shampoo bar is made with sodium hydroxide, as is all real soap. There's nothing "unnatural" about it. Sodium hydroxide (lye) is necesarry to "saponify" the oils...turn them into soap. Once saponification is complete, there is no actual "lye" in the soap.

    Potassium hydroxide is used to make liquid soap, which is her shampoo. Same concept.

    I really want to try the serum, winter has not been kind to my scalp at all. My scalp doesn't seem to absorb oil at all and I need an alternative. I've only read one review on it though...and wanna hold out until more folks co-sign on it.

    I want the butter, but it has glycerin... I wonder if I can figure out how to use another product to alleviate my issues with it...off to Google.

    What is an EW base?

    Please someone explain, is this the same thing that Amourai Organique was doing as well?

    I've actually noticed a few companies that do this but I didn't want to say anything. I figured ppl would be upset and what the heck ain't hurting nobody if it's working for you. Kinda misleading though.
