About Controlled Chaos

Headquartered in Portland, Maine, 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.

About the Founder, Alanna York

Alanna York has owned a successful salon in Portland, Maine for 17 years—and has been styling hair for much, much longer (she'll never tell!). When her professional career began in the early '90s, she had perfected a hairstyle that worked with her curls. She entered beauty school and became a hairstylist, discovering the passion and excitement that came in transforming a client through a new look—especially restoring faith and love in their once-unmanageable curls. In 1999, she opened her salon, Head Games and in 2009, developed an internationally acclaimed haircare line for curly hair, Controlled Chaos. For over two decades, she has specialized in curly hair cutting and styling, finishing and texture techniques, coaching, salon management, marketing, and product design.
