Stay Frizz-Free Forever

Controlled Chaos5 Ways to Stay Frizz-Free Forever:

Curl types vary, but if there’s one struggle all girls face, it’s frizz. Luckily, the folks at Controlled Chaos have unlocked the secret to banishing frizz once and for all with the revolutionary Controlled Chaos Curl Crème. When applied correctly, it’s all you need to win this game for good. Keep reading for five ways to embrace your new frizz-free lifestyle.

1. Moisturize like you mean it! Thirsty hair = frizzy hair.
2. Apply Curl Crème to soaking wet hair and blot gently with a microfiber towel or even a plain cotton t-shirt.
3. Keep your hands to yourself! Brushing or touching your hair while it’s drying can trigger a frizz fiasco.
4. Air dry if possible, or blow dry sparingly with a diffuser (never without!).
5. Once dry, flip your hair upside down and gently scrunch your curls to encourage softness and volume. (We like to do this step with just a small dab of Controlled Chaos on our hands!)

Time Control Cream

Vie Collection Time Control Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream
VIE Collection extends its TIME CONTROL anti-aging expertise to skin slackening.

TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream draws its inspiration from redensifying EGF* to combat deep wrinkles, devitalization, loss of elasticity, loss of volume and sagging facial contours.
EGFs are proteins that are naturally present in the skin and are able to boost cell growth capability and regeneration by initiating the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. With age, the concentration of EGFs in the body decreases and signs of aging appear: devitalized skin, deep wrinkles and slackening of tissues.

VIE Collection visibly reverses all signs of skin slackening with TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles - Firming EGF Cream.

*Epidermal Growth Factors.

Considered the most powerful cosmetic active ingredient for reversing the biological signs of aging, EGFs are naturally present
in the skin.

- Produced when the body activates tissue repair following a skin "wound"
- Act as intercellular messengers by binding to target receptors
- Transmit instructions for growth, multiplication and regeneration to cells

Cell activity is accelerated and skin regeneration is set in motion again.
As the number of EGFs decreases with age, the skin is less protected against skin aging: cell degeneration, deep wrinkles, skin slackening, and emaciation of the tissues occurs.
Obtained by chemical synthesis, the EGF-like peptide has the same molecular structure as EGF. It is attracted to EGF receptors and thus strongly activates cell division. Cell regeneration is thus faster and more effective.

Use morning and evening on face and neck. Use in conjunction with Time Control Deep Wrinkles EGF Serum for added benefit.

Reduction of up to -18%*.

Skin is smoothed with reduced wrinkles for more than 7 out of 10 women**.
Reduction in volume of ptosis by up to - 28%***.

- Skin is more toned
- The skin regains support and elasticity
- The skin is visibly firmer
* Measurement of the smoothing and anti-wrinkle effect. Instrumental test on 21 volunteers, after twice daily use. Average value obtained on 13 out of 21 volunteers. Overall result -7%. 3D illustrations and macrophotography of one of the best results. **Satisfaction test on 22 women, twice-daily application for 28 days. ***Measurement of lifting and reshaping effect. Instrumental test on 23 volunteers after twice daily use. Effect measured in 87% of volunteers.

She Was Warned

5"x5" sticker now.
she was warned...nevertheless,she persisted.
When I was 12 my grandmother gave me a refrigerator magnet that stated, "A closed mouth gathers no foot".
I've always been "shushed" or told to "be still", and I have persisted my entire life.

My grandmother loved me. Even if I didn't keep my mouth shut.

Thanks to Brett Hurlbut for the design work. I'll love you always.
