A Hair Affair With Philip B.

She’s A Very Kinky Girl

My mother used to recite a poem to me when I was a child. With mixed emotions I am sure, she would affectionately say…

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good
She was very very good
But when she was bad she was horrid

Hard To Handle

Everybody knows I’m cursed with curls—insane ringlets that can spiral out of control. Just like me, they can be quite a handful and sometimes end up a tangled mess. Neither mom nor I ever managed to fully understand how to work out the kinks with my temperamental tresses.

My Mane Man

Finally, I’ve met a man who can handle my defiant mane. I’d like to introduce you to Philip B., pictured below. Philip’s products are the choice of the rich, the famous, and those in-the-know. Just one washing with his fabulous treatment-based shampoos…just one application of his incredibly potent conditioners…and you will know why.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

Most shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulfate, a detergent that can strip your hair of its natural oils and leave it un-beautiful: less than cooperative, dry and brittle, parched, thirsty for moisture and prone to breakage.

“I buffer down the sodium lauryl sulfate in our shampoos with such a high level of essential oils that it becomes gentle and creamy—the best possible way to clear away any dirt or build-up while distributing conditioning oils throughout your hair, even to the ends,” Philip said. “In some cases, I use so many plant and flower oils that the SLS is rendered all but inactive; it’s just there to carry the oils and help you lather up.”

It is this richness in essential oils, and the unmatched percentages of nurturing plant extracts in Philip’s formulas that surpass any other hair care line on the market.

The Royal Family

Philip’s new Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo, $75, Oud Royal Conditioner, $85, and Oud Royal Gravity-Defying Gel, $28 are one of my favorite parts of the day.

Oud (pronounced, simply OOD), is a dark, fragrant resin that exists in the agarwood tree, native to southeast Asia. The resin develops when the tree is infected with a strain of mold that will eventually kill it. The complex and delicious oud smells uniquely of its own–I have never experienced anything quite like it–and the scent lasts for days.

Akin to bathing in a heady perfume, the Oud Royal Shampoo is a decadent experience. But it’s when you are out of the shower and your hair is drying that you realize what a genius Philip is.

Shine, bounce, silky manageability, everything your hair desires…Philip B. is the Houdini of Hair who can make dry, brittle locks magically disappear.

This particular formula is sulfate-free and infused with time-released botanical oils which have been broken into molecules small enough to actually penetrate the hair shaft providing sustained results, including volume and a lustrous shine.

This is one affair that’s actually worth having.
