Health-Minded Beauty With The @HBLHairCare Hydrating System #Giveaway #Ad ~ 2/10

HBL Shine & Seal and Hydrating Systems
Momma Told Me: Pay attention to what you put on your body- not just what you put in!

I am a serial colorist. To me, my body is my canvas, and self expression is the healthiest way of coping with the day-to-day ups and downs of life. When the never-ending 'hair' journey began, in my latter years of high school, I dyed my hair not to rebel, but to help find myself. While I wished I could change my hair color with my mood, anyone who's ever color-treated their locks knows it's not that simple. And, whether you're coloring in a salon, or at home, the chemical processing required for even a semi-permanent hue is fairly traumatizing to your hair. Of course, when it began, I considered this form of self expression one of the safer routes, among the choices of my peers. Now, the older I become, the wiser I get about natural and sulfate free haircare options. That's why HBL haircare, Health, Beauty, Life, and the company mission behind the brand, speaks to me so vibrantly.

Most of my readers know I took the plunge from pink and purple streaks to fire-engine red late Summer 2013. It was a whole-head transformation that seriously shook-up my haircare routine. Not only was I color-treating my entire head with a semi-permanent hue (a gentle floral based brand called Adore), but I was adjusting my daily care as well. To help preserve the color I switched to wet-cleansing every third day; a long cry from the every morning routine I'd cultivated through the years. I began reaching for dry shampoos and immediately noticed my hair would vacillate from thirsty and dry to excessively oily. I needed a salon-quality regimen that would help balance my hair's natural pH, as well as infuse my hair with enough moisture to make it between wet-washes. When I had the chance to try HBL's Hydrating Conditioner and Shampoo set I was immediately enthusiastic about the promise of a gentle cleanser that doubled as a hydrating facial wash. Hair product that was not only gentle enough for the skin, but encouraged to cleanse it?

Inspired by a family's multiple battles with cancer, and the desire to pay more attention to the products which we, as consumers, put on our skin, HBL is committed to providing gentle formulations that have not only eliminated the bulk of common and harmful toxins, but also work to balance pH as well. This naturally lead to a base with an subtle fragrance that is virtually allergen free, and safe for even the most sensitive of skin. The companion product, Hydrating Conditioner, helps prevent product build-up, while actively smoothing and moisturizing hair for an even finish that cuts down on frizz and naturally enhances shine. Thanks to this duo's paraben free formulas, I was able to extend my hair color over 8 weeks, maintaining vibrant color and soft, voluminous hair.

During my 2 month trial of the HBL Hydrating System I also incorporated the brand's Shine and Seal professional finishing product, twice a week. This companion product helped work with the hydrating aspects of my shampoo and conditioner to cut down on frizz and lock in shine and color vibrancy, especially when it came to heat based styling. Rich in vitamin E and Argan Oil, this very gentle treatment could be added directly to damp hair for a quick on-the-go treatment, or brushed in immediately prior to styling for an extra boost. I loved how the Shine and Seal felt lightweight on styled hair and never left my strands looking greasy.

While using the HBL Hydrating system I found myself armed with extra confidence every wash, and only experienced a minor problem with the Conditioner formula being excessively thick for distribution through the pop-cap. In the end I stored this product upside down and unscrewed the top for product application. Though the product had difficulty dispensing, this did not impact it's effectiveness in covering my hair from scalp to tip. In fact, a little bit of the Hydrating Conditioner truly went a long way to treat my entire head of hair! While I have already moved into my 2014 hair-style and coloring, I am excited to continue exploring the many collections within the HBL brand. As the daughter of a Hodgkins-Lymphoma survivor, I know all too well the importance of what you put on your skin, and what your skin is absorbing in- I appreciate body conscious brands like HBL leading the way for like-minded consumers.

What Daughter Says: Don't compromise care for quality, choose smart developed products for beauty and health.
