It’s The Little Things: Iden Bee Propolis

I only get my hair done every three to four months. It is one of the weird things I am cheap about. I am due for a salon visit soon. I discovered this shampoo and conditioner two years ago. It is called Iden Bee Propolis Shampoo and Conditioner. I buy it in the “Nourished Fortifying and Hydrating” variety. My whole family uses it now. I love that it has a pump on the larger sizes so it is easy to access in the shower.

It is made from bees. Which is always the way to my heart, because my daddy is a beekeeper. Here is an interesting article on bee propolis extract. My hair feels clean. It has bounce and shine. It feels thicker. I love this product.

I have tried many other products. For a while, my favorite was Biolage. This blows that away. I buy my supply on Amazon. I always buy it in the 32 oz. bottle. I use whichever supplier is cheapest at the time. I highly recommend shopping around for the best price with shipping.

It is expensive, but I am addicted at this point. Being an OCD hoarder, I must have a spare bottle of shampoo and conditioner at all times. It costs me about $55 every two months for my family’s supply.

I lost a lot of my hair with my weight loss. It was kind of scary. And I am hoping it grows back soon. I feel like I am taking good care of my hair, using this product.

It is the little things… Feeling better about yourself!

  1. Hmm..I’ve been looking for something to replace my worthless “thickening and strengthening” shampoo and conditioner. But one question – does this attract bees/insects? lol. Some products I’ve used in the past (like Herbal essences back in the day), totally attracted bugs bc I guess they use natural ingredients in the products that bugs are attracted to by nature. If these products are made of bees, has that been the case for you? And is it actually made out of like processed bees or out of like the honey they make? 🙂

    • Bee Propolis is pretty much the stuff the bees use to build their hives. So, it is plant material mixed with the bee’s own secretions (saliva). Wow! Sounds disgusting! But it works! It has not attracted any insects to me. I have used it for two years.

      I hope it works for you! I love it!

      Have a great day!

  2. I have ordered some of this shampoo from Amazon. It is pricey for me – I am happy to buy Suave or VO5, on sale! I’ll let you know after I’ve used it a couple of weeks, see if I notice a difference. Thanks for giving me some new ideas, my hair can use some help.

    • Oh! I hope it works for you! Please let me know. I need to know if I am the freak that this works for. ; ). I love anything made by bees. My grandmother was a huge believer in its benefits.

      Be sure to give me an update! Thank you for trying it!

      Have a wonderful night!
