The Ultimate Vacation Styling Product

Posted by Controlled Chaos on

Depending on which part of the country you're in, you may be experiencing copious amounts of winter weather and wishing you were in another part of the country—or the globe. Since you're already mentally planning your vacation anyway, let's talk about the only hair product you'll need to pack for your trip: Controlled Chaos Curl Crème! Why is the Curl Crème a one-stop shop for your traveling needs?

Controlled Chaos Curl Crème works great in any climate.

Surely every curly has probably packed (or thought about packing) five to seven curl products for a trip, unsure as to which one will work best on your hair when you arrive at your destination. This is probably especially true if it's your first time at your vacation spot! But even if you're going somewhere familiar, there's no telling what the weather will be like when you arrive. Since most vacation destinations are humid areas, you already know that Controlled Chaos Crème is perfect for where you're going since it fights frizz and keeps your curls controlled in the moisture. You'll be able to apply it to your curls before your trip and arrive feeling confident that your curls will look the same as they did before you stepped on the plane—even in Hawaii or Miami! Or, apply it to your hair after arriving and air-dry—no blow-drying necessary—and head out for some exploration, confident that your curls will look amazing no matter where you go! 

One product takes up less space than two or more (obviously).

We all know that space is of the essence when traveling, especially if you're traveling on an airline these days. There's always the debate as to what you can take in your carry-on, and what you can live without in the event that your luggage gets lost. Well, guess what? Depending on the length of your trip, you can pack a full-size Curl Crème or a 3-ounce TSA-friendly size (available for pre-order now!) in your carry-on. Either way, you're only packing one product and you've got more room for that extra pair of shoes or swimsuit cover-up! You won't have to worry that TSA will throw away that full-sized bottle of Curl Crème that you accidentally put in your carry-on, thus saving you money as well. And since Controlled Chaos works naturally on your curls and allows them to essentially style themselves, you don't need to worry about packing a blow dryer at all. So that's another thing you won't have to pack (well, two, if you count the diffuser!). See there, another space and time saver for your trip! 

Your hair will be protected from the unfamiliar elements by a single product.

Let's face it, it's tough to take care of your hair when you're not at home and in your comfort zone. You may be in the sun a lot—not to mention in the pool or the ocean—and your hair can freak out, dry out, or frizz out. Well, Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is great for protecting your curls from all of the environmental hazards that can potentially wreak havoc on them. Controlled Chaos works like a leave-in conditioner and styler in one, so you can wash, apply, and go—no styling needed. You wouldn't want to be stuck in the hotel room trying to blow out your hair anyway, only to have it frizz back up when you step outside. Your hair is protected from the dryness due to pool or salt water with CC's conditioning properties, from the humidity with its styling properties, and from the sun with its UV protection properties. What more could you need? Maybe just a drink with a little umbrella!

There you have it—several reasons why Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is the only product you'll need for your curls when packing for your next vacation. And while you're waiting for that vacation time to arrive, why not try out the Curl Crème in your home climate in the meantime? It may help you get through the in-between times with a little more curl styling and a little less daydreaming of those sunny beaches—and then your vacation will be here before you know it!

3 Reasons to Try Fragrance-Free Curl Cream

Posted by Controlled Chaos on

Ever looked in stores for a fragrance-free hair product? If so, you'll know they're pretty hard to find. Some hair/skin products are so laden with fragrances that you can smell them from a mile away. Not so bad, if that's what you want. However, if it's not, well...sometimes you're just outta luck. But if you don't have a preference one way or the other about fragrance, let's talk about three benefits of using a fragrance-free curl cream that you may not have thought of.

1. You won't irritate the sensitive schnoz of someone with allergies.

When Aunt Ethel comes to visit, what's the first thing she says when she hugs you? "Oh, honey, your perfume is triggering my migraines. Can you go wash it off?" Okay, she might not say that, but there is a percentage of the population that is highly sensitive to fragrances. It's a real thing. Maybe you have the sensitivity yourself, or maybe you know someone who does; either way, if you still want your curls to look amazing without added scent, a fragrance-free curl cream would be a good solution. After all, there's no sense in showing up to every family gathering looking like a frizzball—your hair shouldn't have to suffer to save Aunt Ethel's senses, and likewise, you don't want your hair product to be the cause of her migraine, either. And guess what, our Curl Crème now comes in fragrance-free, beginning this month! 

2. You'll avoid clashing fragrances with scented lotions or perfumes.

Surely this has entered the minds of most women at one point or another: "Oh no, will the scent(s) of my hair products go with the scents of my skin products?" It may or may not matter too much, but sometimes it's a concern. Well, if you go with a fragrance-free hair product, that's one thing you don't have to worry about! Can't help ya with the lotions and perfumes, though. That one's up to you. But at least you'll know that if you use the fragrance-free Controlled Chaos Curl Crème, your hair and skin won't be warring with each other for control of your olfactory system. It also won't contribute to the sensory overload of that hot guy standing behind you in line at the coffee shop with a great view of your curls. Bonus.

3. You'll have a nice, natural clean-hair scent.

You may think that if you use a fragrance-free hair product, your hair won't smell good. Not so! On the contrary, it will have that natural clean-hair scent—kind of like freshly laundered towels that have been drying outside on the clothesline. Clean and fresh, without a whole bunch of added fragrance to cover up the naturally clean scent that's hiding underneath! Give the new fragrance-free Controlled Chaos Curl Crème a try, and you might just find you like that natural clean scent!
