Great scent, pretty color, give my hair great bounce m, shine and texture. Also instantly creates giant flaking dandruff patches that I have never had before...



Hair -Philip B. -Detangling Finishing Rinse

Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan of this. First off, it smells truly like vinegar. I know it's one of the main ingredients, but they couldn't add any fragrance to it? Thankfully, the vinegar smell never lingered in my hair. Second, I felt like I had to spray on quite a bit to actually detangle my hair. I will say it was nice that it never weighed down my hair, which is definitely a plus. But it seemed like such work. Spray on, squeeze out excess, towel dry. I also felt it made my ends look quite ragged and dry. Sorry, Philip B. Too many strikes, you're out.


Shampoo -Philip B. -Peppermint & Avocado Shampoo

As someone who lives in a city with a disgustingly hot, humid climate, this shampoo is like a little gift from God. It's insanely refreshing. This doesn't just clean my hair - it perks me up when I'm feeling lethargic, makes me feel deliciously clean and cool, clears up headaches, you get the idea. There is a small caveat, which is that you really do need to love peppermint because this stuff packs a punch. You can literally feel the tingle, not just on your scalp, but down your whole body when you rinse your hair out. It's a good tingle by the way - not stinging or uncomfortable. More like the weird but wonderful little shiver you sometimes get down your spine. Personally, I love it and I think most non mint-hating people would probably really enjoy it too. (As for the avocado, I can't detect any traces of it scent-wise which is probably a good thing).

This is billed as a 'voluminising and clarifying' shampoo. While I can't say that I notice any major voluminising effects, this is hands down the best clarifying shampoo on the market. Most clarifying shampoos that I've tried have left my hair lank, dull and stripped of moisture. Not so with this stuff - it gives you that squeaky clean feeling while still leaving my hair softer and insanely glossy, with an almost glassy shine. And I guess the voluminising aspect actually does come into play here, because unlike other clarifying shampoos, it doesn't make my hair go flat and limp.

I think this shampoo would be suitable for just about everyone with frequency of use varying depending on your hair type. If you have hair that tends to be on the oily side, this stuff is gentle enough for everyday use. Personally, I tend to alternate this with two or three other shampoos so I end up using it maybe twice a week on average. (I have fairly thick, straight hair that's on the drier side but the alternating different shampoo thing is more to do with the fact that I enjoy variety).

Although this isn't cheap, I really do love this shampoo and will always have it on hand. This is the shampoo I'd pick if I was forced to limit myself to using only one for the rest of my life (God forbid). Also, if you do end up liking this shampoo, I strongly recommend buying the full litre bottle as it adds up waaaaay cheaper in terms of price per ounce or ml.

Bottom line: I adore this product. You probably will too, provided you're not a peppermint hater. So go out and buy it, seriously. It's amazing.

Styling Products -Philip B. -Maui Wowie Beach Mist

I have wavy hair and prefer a more natural, air-driedlook so I have tried every wave spray on the market (unless of course I can't stand the smell of it - but that's only a brand or two). This is my favorite so far, as it produces pretty waves and body without leaving my hair overly crunchy and stiff feeling. It also has a clean scent without that horrible cheap suntan lotion aroma that so many wave sprays have. If you have a bit of natural wave in your hair and want to maximize it, I recommend this product. You can spray your hair lightly, scrunch it with your hands, and let it dry without any more thought. What's not to like?

Conditioner -Philip B. -White Truffle Nourishing Hair Conditioning Creme

I was NOT impressed with this product - at least in comparison to what I paid. Yes, I am one of those fools who was suckered in by the grand reviews left on high end retails sites (Barney's, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf's) and ended up paying $75.00. While I don't mind paying out the @ss for hair products, they better be worth the money. This product was so mediocre that I was tempted to go find Philip B and kick him in the kneecaps.

I have $5-$10 conditioners that work better than this - no joke. Deep Repair Aloe Vera Jasmine Conditioner by Marc Anthony costs about $7.00 and is WAY BETTER than this stuff. The White Truffle conditioner is NOT made with thick or curly girls in mind at all; I can see where this would work well for people with fine and thin hair, but that's not the mane I was blessed with so... Also, its not long hair friendly; if I used this on the daily I'd run out in a week, legit. If I used this once a week, well, I'd be out of it in a month.

Other reviewers noted it sells at discount outlets for 10 bux, and that's what it's worth IMO. And to be honest, had I known and picked it up for that price I still would give it only 3 stars. Clearly I do not recommend this product for people with long hair, or coarse hair or curls. If you want the benefits of white truffle oil on your locks, do yourself a solid and just purchase a good bottle of the actual oil and use it as an oil treatment (mix with other conditioners, blend it with an avocado, etc).
