HBL - Hydrating System

In my quest for a moisturizing hair mask that wasn't ridiculously expensive while still not containing any potentially harmful ingredients, I came across HBL. HBL stands for health, beauty, life and is a haircare line unique onto themselves. The line doesn't contain sulfates, parabens, DEA's, TEA's or any other such ingredients. It is gentle yet effective and most importantly not expensive. I decided to try the hydrating system as I needed a great hair mask and after trying samples of a few other hair masks that just didn't live up to expectations, I was very happy to try this. 

The hair mask is described as a product that "intensely smoothes, conditions and protects even the most challenging hair without weighing it down or leaving a greasy feeling." When I first scooped it out of the jar I was worried about the consistency as it was really thick. This product comes with a little comb in the jar, which I loved, so I could comb the mask into my hair after putting it on. I let it sit for a bit before rinsing it out. WOW! Thats really says it all. My hair felt silky smooth as if I didn't color my hair or straighten it on a regular basis. I could really see the difference especially after drying and straightening my hair. It was love at first use. My hair has never felt better!

Back tracking a little bit, the shampoo was also wonderful. It smells amazing and I love how much it lathers on my head. The hydrating shampoo "gently cleanses, moisturizes, and smoothes hair of all types." I generally don't like using both a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner as I feel my hair gets greasy faster, but have not had that problem with this set. My hair still lasts 2-3 days in between washes without getting greasy and still containing the thickness and body I desire. 

The last product, the conditioner, is just as well loved as the first two products. The description is basically the same: "smooths, moisturizes, and protects hair without excessive weight or leaving a greasy feeling" and I feel my review of the product is the same as the others. It smells great, moisturized well without weighing my hair down, and left my hair feeling silky smooth. 

I have used these products every shower since receiving them. I really, really love them and I'm pretty sure my hair does too. My hair has felt dry ever since I made the mistake of bleaching my hair and have not been able to find a product that brought my hair back to the way it was. These products undoubtable did just that. I am SO thankful! 

For people with other haircare concerns, HBL also offers sets in revitalizing, thermal styling, curl enhancing, texture and styling, straightening, rejuvenating, volumizing, and shine and seal.
