Honeybee hair growth http://www.hairphysician.com/blog/honeybee-hair-growth
A group of researchers recently published a study showing how bees can speed hair growth. The research was looking at a substance bees use to make hives. The substance is called propolis. Now, although honey has been used for medicinal purpose for years, little attention has been given to the other bee related substances. So what did the group find?
First, they did not look at hair loss treatment. In this case, they looked at hair growth and speeding up hair growth. So they shaved mice and put them in 2 groups. One group got the propolis topically and the other did not. Apparently, the propolis resulted in much faster hair growth.
So what is the take away? Dr. Rashid from the Mosaic Hair transplant team says "though this is a product with potential anti-inflammatory properties, and could speed hair growth, they do not think it treats hair loss per say. Thus, it may be a good potential adjunct or enhancement to current hair treatments. Or, some people just want hair to grow faster and this may be the solution.
