Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist Review

I hate the beach. Sorry. Since I hate the beach it's impossible to get beach hair. Beach hair seems absolutely essential to Summer and if I don't have beach hair I might not be "in"....I must have beach hair at any cost!

Ok..dramatic I know but seriously. I don't do beaches...sand, sea weed, etc...if God had meant for us to thread around on hot sand, wade in salt water, and have the sun beating on our heads, he'd have given us fins at the very least dontcha think?

Beach hair seems to be the in thing during the Summer months. That slightly damp, mussed up look a la the Little Mermaid. You know hawt tresses that look like you dived into the ocean, spread out on a beach towel, and let the wind dry out your salt laden hair to perfection. Who knew that the beach could do good things for your hair right?

If you aren't a lover of the beach but still desire the hair that goes along with a trip to the shore peep at my review below!

Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist is awesome hair in a bottle sans the beach. A cocktail of sea salt, extracts of algae, orchid, Tahitian gardenia, aloe vera, oils of kukui and coconut and possible a little bit of sand (ok I made the sand part up) gives tresses texture, body, bounce, volume, and hold for that beach worthy look you're craving.

God this stuff smells incredible. Can't we has sniff o' vision on the Interwebz? I'll talk to Al Gore and see what we can arrange, the mighty guru of Internet creation. I wish I can explain the scent to you but it's a bit complex...think fresh, think slightly floral, think...the beach...Maui with a little wowie thrown in there. Loves it!

So what's it do?

Take your slightly damp hair (or dry but damp gets the best results in my humble opinion) and mist a bit of Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist onto your locks. Don't comb it through just scrunch it gently if you like or flip it upside down and shake (this works a treat plus you'll feel like you're in some shampoo or styling commercial). That's about it...the results are bouncy, textured locks, with a bit of volume that simply makes you look like you just bounced off the sand.

Beach hair easy and mess free in a bottle plus no sand in unusual places!

Adore this stuff. Muse Approved for Purchase, it's one of my Summer Makeup Must Haves!

Anyone try?

Tell it!

Looks awesome! I have naturally curly hair & I find it hard to get the whole sexy, wavy, beachy hair thing going on. It too often turns into a frizzy mess! You look like a curly girl too & your hair looks great! I'm going to have to check this out =)

I hate the beach too, which is unfortunate since I live in Southern California... but I have a short pixie cut (Mia Farrow-esque), and I'm looking for good ways to make it all messy and beach-like. Do you think this would work on short hair? Or would it just weigh it down?
