Review: HBL Texture and Styling System Review

image2012-06-03 16.34.10

Trying new styling products is always fun! There are so many fun possibilities to do with hair now that Pinterest and so many beauty blogs have been born. Now us “regular” women can get those beautiful cascading curls, perfectly straight hair, or the beach wave look. All while protecting those beautiful strands!

Create endless styling possibilities with the HBL Texture & Styling System. Protect your strands during heat styling with Thermal Spray, create some lift with Spray Mousse and add movement and get creative with Texture & Styling Cream


·      HBL Thermal Spray 

Thermal Spray

You don’t HAVE to damage your hair to get that straight from the salon blow-dry, straight hair, or curly locks. When you style your hair with heat it weakens and destroys the hair cuticles and follicles.

I have been there and DONE that. Jumping out of the shower, freezing my butt off, just CRAVING the heat from my perfect dryer. I can’t even THINK straight when I’m cold—so my hair dryer soon became my best friend. (AND you could tell by my split ends).

There is NO need to keep damaging those luscious locks and stripping away the natural oils though. All you have to do is accurately prep your hair before heat styling- which means using a Thermal Styling Spray that actually works to prevent damage.

I love that this isn’t a sticky formula. I could spray it directly on my hair while curling or straightening it and my hair never stuck to the tools. This has definitely helped with protecting my hair- but it has also added shine and reduced the frizz! A-mah-ZING.

It isn’t like an aerosol spray either. It doesn’t have a harsh smell that made me want to immediately cover it up. It comes with a spritz bottle top, so that I could spray it all over without a problem. AND it never once tempted to go in my eyes.

You can spray this on dry OR damp hair. SO- if you’ve shampooed and conditioned the night before, and want to wake up and style you can. I can wash my hair and let it air-dry, wake up and straighten or curl my hair and be on my way.

OR I can spritz this on my hair before blow-drying and get some volume out of it as well. So this isn’t just a thermal spray- this is like 4 amazing products in one. Thermal, styling, defrizzer, and shine! While this is on, you don’t have to worry that you’re hair is going to be stiff and stuck to your head. My hair felt absolutely natural, yet still held the curl!

Spray Mousse

Have you ever had the problem of the bubbly mousse coming out too fast? Did you end up with a giant ball of mousse? Did it leaving you thinking of where you were going to stick all of it?

Those days are OVER! HBL has come out with a spray mousse. YES I said it! Sprayable mousse! This can be sprayed in every nook and cranny that needs some style or hold without you ending up with a giant white ball of product that ends up going to waste. This not only helps keep YOU sane, but it helps you save money in the long run.

I loved how this mousse has Panthenol in it, which helped pump up the volume on my not so thick hair. So any extra volume I get is very welcome! My hair is layered, so the volume really helped display the layers instead of them combining together.

This gives me the flexibleness that I crave as well. I HATE using products that make my hair feel stiff and unnatural. When I use something, I want hold, but I want my hair to look natural. I want cascading curls that I can run my fingers through if I want. Not a concreted mess that going to create a ton of tangles when I try and get it out at the end of the day!

The glycerin in the mousse functions as a humectant to retain the hairs moisture and to keep it silky, soft, and shiny.

This is an amazing cream. It allows me to mold and shape my hair any way I want to without it being stiff and unmanageable hours later. My hair stays flexible, and it stays soft and shiny.

I love that it stays easy to manage after using the cream. I have said MANY MANY times that I dislike stiff hair. This is amazing at keeping my hair flowing down my back, while still being able to mold it into any kind of style I want.

  • Lanolin works as an emollient, which softens the hair while special resin blends including beeswax thickens, emulsifies and stiffens hair for a pliable hold.

This doesn’t  have a stickiness to it either, which is also a major plus. I hate when it feels like I have gunk in my hair. This was NOTHING like that. This just felt like using a creamed up flexible hold gel.

It helped with the volume problem that I lack and want so badly! This gave oomph without the hassle. I LOVE IT! It has helped me to perk up my lifeless locks and make them worth SHOWING off!
