Philip B. is a line of botanical hair products that was created by hair expert, Philip B. himself. Philip B. is referred to as Hollywood's preeminent hair treatment expert. His line not only contains premium hair care products, but it also provides the ultimate scalp and body treatments as well. All of his products are formulated with pure botanicals and essential oils to create the most concentrated and luxurious products around. Philip B products are more potent than nearly any other line in the hair care industry. This line has received awards for their cutting edge formulas and have been raved about in American Vogue and Forbes Magazine.
Philip started out his career as a hairstylist in Boston and later moved to Los Angeles. His clients would come to him with super damaged hair from heat styling and chemical treatments. Since their hair wouldn't respond to the deep conditioning products that were housed at the salons he worked at he began mixing up his own concoctions at home to provide his clients with the hydrating experience that their hair desperately needed. After a few years, he became the go-to stylist for many Hollywood celebrities. He began working outside of the salon and traveling to sets of films and photo shoots around the world, seeking the best hair care solutions available along the way.
Philip discovered that the majority of shampoos were formulated from detergent, water, and fragrances which can strip the hair of essential oils and further damage already stressed out hair. Most conditioners he found had a waxy consistency and felt overbearing, weighing down and flattening hair. He found that even the most prestigious brands of hair care products lacked botanicals which help nourish and hydrate hair. These discoveries are what led Philip to create the Philip B. hair care line.
When Philip returned to L. A. he commissioned the services of lab chemists to formulate his products based off the unique benefits he found in natural ingredients throughout his travels. Throughout the process many of his lucky friends, clients, and relatives were used as test subjects for his mixtures. The majority of this process was done at his home and trials were performed by handing people unmarked bottles and sending them to the shower to experience his carefully formulated treatments.
Rather than getting the easier formulas out of the way before working on harder ones, Philip decided to work on the most difficult one first. He developed a hair conditioning oil that was light enough to fully absorb into the hair without leaving it feeling greasy. The result of this experiment was the Philip B. Rejuvenation Oil which immediately drew attention from beauty professionals and enthusiasts alike. After this breakthrough, Philip became one of the most sought after stylists among celebrities and had appointments being booked weeks in advance. Strangely enough, the product became distributed nationally only after beauty editors became aware of this miracle product in 1991. After some time the product line was launched internationally and Philip was called upon by the royal families for private appointments. Ever since then, this product has become internationally known and widely used among industry professionals. See our full selection of Philip B .
