Just wanted to share in the hopes that it helps someone out there.

Thats really cool! Congrats!

Great results! I love reading all the success stories on here.

I have yet to go to the dermatologist...I guess I don't want to hear him/her tell me that my edges aren't coming back. I fell victim to the super duper relaxers and home relaxing that was done strong and WRONG, back in the day.

Yes, your edges are making progress. Congratulations... Now how do you know it's the Bee Mine Hair Serum ? it could be a lot of things, the steriod shots for example.. This is the first time I've seen someone's edges grow back on this site.. I have thin edges too and have done everything in my powers to thicken it up with no success. I've even used Rogaine for women and had hair growing everywhere, sideburns, mustache, arms, legs, it was terrible.. Once I stopped the Rogaine, the hair fell out or stopped growing. I think I might get the shots and what happens.

That's a great question, Misseyl ... and I did consider the fact that the Rogaine has helped to start the growth off right (I even mentioned it in my Fotki). But the steroid shots I only got once way back in January (most people get them monthly to see progress). But that was 6 months ago, so I don't think that's the cause of this latest growth spurt.

If you look at the following set of pictures: I used the Rogaine from March until early June, and there is some improvement there. But like you mentioned, I've read that people who stop using Rogaine end up losing their progress, so that's why I opted not to renew the prescription. At that point, I switched to Bee Mine. I've been using the Bee Mine consistently for the last 6 weeks, and that's why I'm attributing the growth to that product. But like I said earlier, I'm going to continue to monitor this progress to make sure it's not a fluke.
