Bee Mine Product Recommendations and 2015 Discount

Edited (Sept, 2015) to add: Updated Bee Mine Discount Code UTHM15, no minimum purchase!

I often get asked for product recommendations and suggestions. So, here is a quick list of our absolute favorite natural hair care products. I’ve tried A LOT of hair products on my daughter and these are by far the best for us. They are in the mid to high end price range for products, but you get what you pay for and these products are worth it. It doesn’t take much, so these products last… a little goes a long way.  You can check out our Hair Care Routine to see how and when we use these products.  Click the links for products below to read our more detailed reviews of each.  Use checkout code UTHM115 at to get 10% off these products when you order them.

Product Recommendations:

-Botanical Moisturizing Shampoo –This shampoo cleans and gets rid of build up naturally and gently without over-drying the hair.
Shampoo Bar  (same as above, I love it in bar form)
-BEE•U•Ti• FUL Deep Conditioner
Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer – This is an amazing moisturizer that truly hydrates the hair, it is a little on the heavy side, so if you or your child has thinner/finer hair that needs a lighter moisturizer you may want to go with the Deja’s Hair Milk.
Deja’s Hair Milk – This is a great detangler and moisturizer, it is by no means skimpy but it is a lighter consistency, more like a lotion than a cream. If you need a heavier, creamier moisturize go with the Luscious.
Bee Hold Curly Butter – This one gives a great hold that does not dry the hair out, makes those natural curls pop by defining them and controlling frizz and fly aways.
-Bee Mine Juicy Spritz – A refresher and moisturizing spray to freshen up styles and curls, smells amazing too!
-Hair and Scalp Moisturizer – This is an oil (can be in liquid or solid form is colder), it is great to massage into the scalp and to seal in moisture on the hair. I love this! If I don’t have any on hand then I simply use grape seed, coconut oil, castor oil or argan oil instead.

I hope you enjoyed this quick run down if products recommendtions, if you have any other questions feel free to use the contact form or hit me up on facebook. Now head over to and use checkout code UTHM15 this summer to save $$$!!

The Importance of Clarifying Shampoo

It is imperative to the health of the hair and scalp to occasionally cleanse with a clarifying shampoo. Products can build up on the hair, itchy scalp and even scalp infections can result from not properly washing.  Many people think you must use a shampoo with harsh detergents such as sulfates to clarify the hair, but this is simply not true. In fact, it is  important to carefully choose your clarifying shampoo, as many of them out there can strip and dry out the hair.  I’ve found that the Bee Mine Purity Rhassoul Clay Clarifying Bar is an excellent clarifier that doesn’t contain harsh chemicals and ingredients known to dry out the hair.

Bee Mine - Purity Rhassoul Clay Clarifying BarBee Mine - Purity Rhassoul Clay Clarifying Bar

This clarifying bar can be use on any hair type. I use this shampoo on my hair which is fine, straight and gets oily pretty quickly, every time I shampoo, about every 2 or 3 days. This shampoo allows me to go longer between washes by keeping my hair from becoming too oily. I use this on my daughter naturally curly hair as a clarifying shampoo about once a month.

Pictured below on the left is my hair after using the Bee Mine Clarifying Shampoo Bar, their Avocado Cream Conditioner and a spritz or 2 of their Juicy Spritz. On the right is my daughters hair after using the Bee Mine Clarifying Shampoo Bar, Avocado Cream Conditioner and Deja’s Hair Milk.

This shampoo bar can last us up to 6 months. I cut the bar in half to make it stretch, with me using it every 2-3 days on myself (note: I have short hair) and once a month on my daughter one 1/2 of the bar lasted almost 3 months. Well worth the $8.00!

Got to have our babies looking right without breaking the bank.Clothing and Accessories
I’ve been doing some online school clothes shopping, my favorite site to get cute clothes at discounted prices is Zulily, I’ve shared this on Facebook before, but wanted to post about it here, too. I know that back to school shopping can get expensive especially with multiple children, so I wanted to share and hopefully help my readers save some money!
