Our Story

Use Me! Products is an eco-chic line of professional hair care that lives by three simple words: Refill. Reuse. Repeat. But there is much more to this comprehensive brand than meets the eye.

Use Me was developed by Alanna York, stylist and owner of Head Games Salon for Hair and Body in Portland, Maine. Her eco-friendly salon has received numerous awards, including ELLE Magazine’s top 100 salons for two consecutive years. Throughout the past five years, Head Games has received recognition for Best Hair Cut, Best Manicure, Best Pedicure, and Best Massage in both the Portland Press Herald and The Portland Phoenix.

In 2007, after dedicating seven years to growing her salon and dealing with different hair care brands, Alanna reached one, ultimate conclusion: none of the brands worked! There was not a single brand that embodied the necessary functionality and salon support (or the eco-consciousness) that should be required from a professional product line. Inspired by past success, Alanna set out on her own to develop a comprehensive line that benefited the salon, the customers, and the Earth. After four years of research and product development, the Use Me line entered the retail market in 2010. Use Me is currently sold (and used!) in salons across the United States with plans to expand even further.

Our goal is to provide a hair care line that not only offers clients the pinnacle of product functionality, but it supports partner salons that sell the product and the earth that provides the ingredients.

  1. Hi, I have thick curly hair, and just read on your website that your products are formulated for thin hair. I believe i what you are doing for the earth…can your products still work for me? I have dry, middle aged menopausal coarse hair.

    • Absolutely! We have products formulated for all hair types—even more specifically, dry and coarse hair. We have both a Cleanser for Dry & Coarse Hair and a Moisturizer for Dry & Coarse Hair, as well as four styling aids that would work wonderfully with your hair type.
