Current Philip B. Hair Care Obsessions

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

It is no secret that I am obsessed with Philip B. haircare, and there is nothing quite as luxe as their shampoos, conditioners, hair oil and styling products. In fact, for years their haircare products have ranked among my all-time favorite products, and here are a few that need to be on your radar this summer. 
Philip B. Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo ($45.00 for oz. from Philip B., Space NK, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale's, Net-A-Porter, Dermstore, Cult Beauty and Nordstrom): If you love to use a dry shampoo between shampooing and conditioning your hair, then this ultra-luxe variant is the one to try. In fact, I would venture to say that Philip B. makes the very best dry shampoo that I have ever tried. It feels weightless and non-gritty, it has a wonderful Pure Russian Amber aroma and it leaves hair soft, shiny and full of body and texture. It can be used to add lift whenever it is desired, and it effectively absorbs oils while dissolving product build-up. Furthermore, it is formulated to extend the life of your blowout.

According to Philip B.,

Luxe twist on dry shampoo technology lets you create serious volume without sacrificing shine.

  • Refreshes tired, unwashed hair, giving it a clean, powdery-fresh feeling without any powdery residue
  • Extends the life of your blowout
  • Creates gorgeous body, texture and lift anytime
  • Absorbs scalp oils and neutralizes product build-up
  • Leaves hair with a sexy, gleaming finish (not matte)
  • Doubles as a hair perfume: Scents strands with warm, sensuous notes of Pure Russian Amber
  • Paraben free; color & keratin-treatment safe
Directions: Shake can vigorously (until you hear the marbles rattling inside). Hold can 6" to 8" away from your roots and mist generously.

Ingredients: Isobutane, Propane, Alcohol Denat, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Benzyl Benzoate, Propylene Carbonate, Fragrance (Parfum), Isopropyl Myristate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hexyl Cinnamal,  Coumarin, Hydroxycitronellal, Linalool, Citronellol
Philip B. Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray ($32.00 for 4.23 oz. from Bloomingdale's, Dermstore, and Net-A-Porter): This is a weightless and lovely-scented spray that protects hair from from heated styling tools while imparting greater shine. Furthermore, it is loaded with a mixture of botanical hydrators that condition hair.

According to Philip B.,

A sexy, lingering hair fragrance that plumps up your hair and shields it against the ravages of heat styling. A mix of botanical hydrators (Safflower Oleosomes, Mongogo Oil, Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil) and a potent L-Amino Acid Complex repairs fragile strands as it protects.


Strengthens hair with a potent L-Amino Acid complex and amino acids and condition it with botanical hydrators so light and tiny that they’ll never weigh you down.

Light, seductive notes of Oud, encapsulated in tiny safflower oleosomes, gradually release over time for a lingering, follow-me scent.

Detangles and shields hair from the scorch of hot styling tools. It also builds in sexy texture: supremely plump, bouncy and satiny-soft.

Creates an invisible, weightless shield against the sun, chlorine and salt water.

Sweet Blue Lupine Peptides offer superior color hold to keep color from fading or turning.

Directions: Spray on damp or dry hair; comb through. Do not rinse. Style as usual. Mist on prior to sun exposure or any time you want sexy, lustrous, gorgeously scented hair.

Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil ($30.00 for 2 oz. from Philip B., Space NK, Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter, Bloomingdale's, Barneys New YorkSelfridges, Dermstore and Cult Beauty): If you have dry hair in need of serious nourishment, then Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil is a game changer with which you ought to become acquainted. It is a wonderful treat for the hair and scalp, and I cannot sufficiently underscore the extent to which I love this ultra-effective oil.

Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil is an ultra light blend of essential oils that deeply hydrate even the most damaged hair. I use it in a variety of ways, from a daily treatment and styling aid to an ultra deep conditioning treatment. Part of its magic is in its versatility, and it is one of those remarkably effective hair oils that can be used on a daily basis. When I apply a few drops to my hair before styling (it can be used on wet or dry hair) it leaves my hair frizz-free, moisturized, shiny and manageable. My curls become well-formed shiny ringlets that feel and look stunning. When I use it as a deep conditioner, my hair and scalp are left healthy, ultra-moisturized and soft and supple. I often apply it before going to bed, and then wrap my head in a towel and then rinse it in the shower the following day– the difference is absolutely unmistakable. 

According to Philip B.,

Packed with ultra-light essential oils, our legendary conditioning treatment sinks in instantly to transform even the driest, most frazzled hair, leaving it bouncy and gleaming.

  • Restores hair's strength, shine and elasticity. Prevents breakage
  • Detoxes your scalp: Dissolves scalp oils and product buildup for extra lift at the roots
  • Paves the way for luminous, dimensional, healthy-looking color
  • See and feel the results of bouncy, healthy, soft, silky, shiny hair from your very first treatment
Suggested use: Use on parched, damaged hair twice a week; on dry hair, once a week; and on normal hair 1-4 times a month. For a dehydrated scalp, use once or twice a week.

Apply Rejuvenating Oil liberally to dry, unwashed hair, starting two inches from the roots, and work it in with your fingers down to the ends. To help the botanical moisture sink in quickly, warm your hair with a blow dryer for one to two minutes.

For dry hair leave on for 20-45 minutes.
For dry to damaged hair leave on for 45 minutes -2 hours.
For deep conditioning heave ob for 2-15 hours.

Tip: Use a clarifying shampoo to lift excess oil from hair shaft. Rinse well. Condition as usual.

Ingredients: Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Seed Oil, BHT, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Gardenia Florida Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Chlorphenesin, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Citronellol, Coumarin, Eugenol, Farnesol, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Isoeugenol, Limonene, Linalool. Paraben free; Color & Keratin-treatment safe.
Overall Assessment: There is no question that Philip B. makes game-changing haircare products, and these three are among my most-coveted.
