After reading the story behind HBL hair products I thought to myself, wow, what a wonderful company with such dedication. Patrick, the founder of HBL (Health, Beauty and Life), developed these products after several close family members where diagnosed with cancer. Realizing that most skin and hair products contained harmful ingredients, Patrick set out to come up with new formulas that were created with the highest quality surfactants (cleansing agents), virtually allergen-free fragrance and a stable pH – a highly important line of defense in keeping your body healthy.
I was given the opportunity to review HBL's Shine & Seal Hair Care System. I believe my hair to be healthy as I've spent countless hours and years finding what works for me and what doesn't. I find trying out new products to be exciting and challenging at the same time since what works for one might not work for another. I've seen many reviews and was excited to try out this line I wasn't familiar with.
I'd like to start off by talking about the Hydrating Shampoo. One thing about my hair is that it's picky when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. The texture of my hair is frizzy, slightly wavy and thin; my hair is pretty close to waist length. Though I haven't, in a while, I do color my hair often so it tends to be on the dry side when I do. The consistency of the shampoo is somewhat runny but not too runny. The smell is fresh and clean and left my hair feeling squeaky clean and I could actually run my hands through my hair. It lathers nicely and a little bit sure does go a long way!
After shampooing, I used the Hydrating Conditioner. What I found to be wonderful about the conditioner was that it has a nice thick consistency, almost like a really thick foot cream. The smell kind of reminded me of lotion; the smell doesn't linger long so if you're not fond of the smell of plain ol' lotion, no need to worry. I added the conditioner to the ends of my hair and was very impressed at how well it coated my strands; again, a little goes a long way.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Shine & Seal. I simply adore this product. I very much love a good hair serum that DOESN'T weigh my hair down. I really don't have a lot of luck when finding a good serum as they tend to be too heavy for my thin strands. I used a VERY SMALL amount of the Shine & Seal and was impressed with the results. It wasn't too heavy and gave my strands a nice, healthy feeling and a very nice shine. I must say, with any serum, a little truly does go a long way.
So what are my thoughts? I am very excited to say that I have a new line of hair care that I will stick with as long as they make it. I am one that likes to rotate my shampoos and conditioners so I will most definitely be adding the Shine & Seal Hair Care line to my rotation. I appreciate the time that was taken in developing these products; to know that I'm using healthy and safe ingredients on my hair and scalp. That in itself is a huge plus! So go on, give it a try and see for yourself.
