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.

Controlled Chaos

Controlled Chaos Curl Creme
Controlled Chaos was created by a hairstylist with curly hair and developed with feedback from hundreds of her beloved curly clients. As if providing the best frizz-fighting, sun-blocking, curl-smoothing product wasn’t enough, the socially-conscious Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is made with organic U.S.-sourced ingredients and packaged in BPA-free bottles. Plus, one percent of all sales benefit the environment through 1% for the Planet.

No more product layering! Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is the ultimate all-in-one curl product. No need for a detangler, primer, mousse, gel, oil, heat protector, SPF, or shine spray... Curl Crème does it all.

ELIMINATES FRIZZ Locking in moisture and blocking out humidity, the Curl Crème soothes curls with organic chamomile, aloe and lavender extracts
ENHANCES CURLS Revolutionary “product memory” allows the hair to be worn up, moved around...even stretched... and it will return to the curl pattern it dried in with no crispy, flaky or greasy feeling
STRENGTHENS AS IT STYLES pH-balanced formula equalizes porosity, provides color protection and repairs damaged hair over time
ADDS INCREDIBLE SHINE All types of curly hair, even color-treated, damaged and porous textures will look shinier and healthier
PROVIDES UV AND HEAT PROTECTION You won’t need to apply additional primers or protectants
HIGHLY CONCENTRATED You’ll need less product over time, with continued use

THREE STEPS TO THE BEST. CURLS. EVER.

1. APPLY Starting with clean, soaking wet hair, apply to areas most likely to frizz. Begin at the ends and work upward toward the scalp, applying very little at the root.

2. STYLE Rake and scrunch large sections to encourage curl formation. If desired, twist face-framing curls around your finger (about one-inch sections, depending on hair density).

3. DRY Air dry or use a diffuser attachment to blow-dry, finishing with cool air. DO NOT touch the hair until it’s 100% dry! Once dry, if your curls look wet or crispy, just scrunch and shake out.
