holistic hair care products

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the pH level of the product so important?

All hbl products are pH balanced and stable to work with your body’s natural Acid Mantel balance, one of your body’s first lines of defense. Additionally, a high pH opens the hair cuticle and strips out color during the shampooing process, while a low pH keeps the cuticle closed so color stays in place during the shampoo process.

What are sulfates and why are they bad for hair?

Sulfates are commonly used surfactants (cleansing agents) that can be damaging and irritating to the skin and hair cuticle. All hbl shampoos use gentle surfactants that won’t jeopardize the integrity of your hair or irritate your skin.

Is hbl safe for color treated and chemically processed hair?

Absolutely! Because our products are pH balanced and stable and sulfate-free, hbl is able to gently cleanse your hair without opening the cuticle, stripping hair color or damaging fragile strands.

What are parabens? Do you use them in your products?

Parabens are used as preservatives in many other hair care products and are potentially linked to various health issues. All hbl formulas use a healthier alternative to parabens for product preservation.

I suffer from celiac disease and need to stay away from gluten. Is hbl safe for me to use?

All hbl products are gluten and soy free, so people with sensitivity in these areas can safely use our products.

Can men use hbl too?

Of course! We offer hair care solutions for every hair type, men included!
