What Exactly is Ovation Cell Therapy?

Many clients are pleased with the way Ovation Cell Therapy has made their hair healthier, thicker, stronger, and longer, but most don’t know exactly why it does what it does.

First, let’s clear up a few things. Ovation’s Cell Therapy is not a shampoo and it’s not a conditioner.  It is a hair treatment.  And because our whole lives we’ve been taught to just wash and condition our hair, many people get confused about what a hair treatment is.  Once you find out, and start using Ovation, it really will change the way you think about your hair care routine.

On a basic level, I like to think of Cell Therapy as a vitamin for hair.  Much like taking a vitamin or eating nutrients that hair needs, by using Cell Therapy you’re applying those nutrients directly onto the hair and scalp.  The scalp is the environment in which the hair develops and lives, so its health is vital for healthy hair growth and maintenance.  Adding a vitamin to the scalp and hair strands can not only promote healthy hair, but can also wake up dormant cells.  The Cell Therapy does exactly that, rejuvenates dormant hair follicles to encourage natural, healthy growth.

How exactly does it do that?

What Exactly is Cell Therapy?

Normal hair has three layers: the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla. The cuticle is the outer layer and is comprised primarily of keratin (protein) scales that overlap slightly. Hair in good condition has a relatively flat cuticle making it shiny, smooth, manageable, and even fuller.  Cuticles that are in bad condition are broken, dull, and weak. One thing that makes Cell Therapy work so well is protein. Adding protein to a damaged cuticle can repair it by attaching to the keratin and filling in the damaged spots.  It then creates a smooth, protected layer which both looks great and protects against future damage.

Cell Therapy also works to stimulate circulation in the scalp.  The act of massaging the product in alone encourages healthy blood flow.  By optimizing blood flow, you encourage not only healthier hair growth, but also can increase the rate of growth.

The vitamins that are included in the Ovation Cell Therapy formula also have amazing benefits for the health of your hair and scalp.  If you’ve ever googled vitamin E, you know that it’s known for its antioxidant properties.  It’s also said to prevent split ends, encourage growth, and keeps color vibrant.  B Vitamins have countless health benefits and are best known in hair care for their ability to penetrate and moisturize the hair shaft.

We can’t give away all of our secrets this time, but our products do work.  You don’t even have to take our word for it and you can try it risk free!

Now that you know some of the reasons why Cell Therapy works, you might better understand why we recommend using the Advanced Color Therapy Shampoo and Advanced Crème Rinse when using Cell Therapy:

What Exactly is Cell Therapy?

These products along with the Cell Therapy work together synergistically to maximize shine, body and growth while maintaining strong, healthy hair.

Advanced Color Therapy Shampoo – Many shampoos include ingredients that create a rich lather, leaving you with that “clean” hair feeling.  What many people don’t know is that some of those ingredients that create lather, are not only harsh, but can also cause build-up and defeat the purpose of shampooing.   That being said, for some hair types it is good to use a more harsh shampoo, but we don’t recommend that on a daily basis.  Our Advance Color Therapy Shampoo gently and effectively cleans your hair, removing buildup which prepares your scalp for best absorption of the Cell Therapy.

Advanced Crème Rinse – Many people think that our Crème Rinse is a conditioner, but it’s not.  It’s a moisturizer. It doesn’t contain any oils that can coat the hair and weigh it down.  Some conditioners contain silicones that leave your hair feeling smooth, but they aren’t actually making the hair strand healthy. Our Crème Rinse contains vegetal proteins and other emollients to that create both a healthy and smooth cuticle.

All of our products include vitamins and plant extracts explained in this post.

Have a great hair day!

A Post for Men – Hairstyle Trends Fall 2012

Cooler weather is approaching! As all you men out there update your wardrobe for fall with cozy scarves and comfy beanies, it’s the perfect time to make a hairstyle change. Whether you’re looking to switch up your style in a professional sense or just take your current look up a notch, this year’s hair trends are a great place to look for inspiration.

Men’s Hairstyle Trends –  Ovation Hair
Beckham almost always “undercuts” the competition and there is no exception in his hair style.  The undercut, also called the Quiff is uber-popular right now and is even trending for women (as seen on Miley Cyrus). The undercut is a versatile look that can be worn short and spiked or long and swooped.

Men’s Hairstyle Trends – Fall and Beyond – 2012
The show and the inspiration are from the 60’s but the Don Draper hairstyle is so 2012. Sporting this look will not only make you instantly cool, it’s sure to get you complements involving the words “sharp” and “dapper”.  The parted-and-slick look is easily done and has the potential to make a great impact.

Men’s Hairstyle Trends – Fall and Beyond – 2012
The outdated fro-hawk underwent a minor, yet colossal face lift and Usher rocks it perfectly.  This style keeps him looking clean cut, young and hip.

Men’s Hairstyle Trends – Fall and Beyond – 2012
The long hair and beard look may be my favorite all-time Shia LaBeouf hair style.  Although it’s a bit scruffier than his normally polished do, the look makes him mature, and stylish.  Usually worn by more of the bad boy and hipster types, the long hair and beard look is definitely a trend that is here to stay.

In fact, trend predictions show much longer hair for 2013.  According to the style forecast shoulder length hair and longer will be the sought after hair on men.  Tight, messy buns will be the up-do trend and voluminous waves will be encouraged.  Sound like the greasy, grungy hair trend from the 90’s? It’s definitely not! Women are inspiring another possible trend for Men in 2013, color! You may start to see anything from Rihanna Red to Demi Lavado’s dip dyed ends on men.

No matter what the trends are, healthy hair is always in style and Ovation’s Advanced Cell Therapy System can help you achieve that.  Remember that when you order any Cell Therapy product in the month of October, you’ll receive the limited edition PINK bottle, so order today!

Ovation Hair Product Reviews

I wanted to give a thank you shout out to Tammy S. who sent us this review last week!

“This product is AMAZING and my hair has never looked better or fuller! I have baby fine hair and since my children and Thyroid problems [it]has gone really sparse on the top. Since I have used the Shampoo and Crème rinse it is so full and shiny! People complement me all the time! I am slowly using the treatment because I wanted to see if I liked the other stuff first and I do!!!! I will be going all in with all the products. I also am using the Volumizer and Thermal protector. I cannot thank you enough for having this so I can be happy about doing my hair again!!!

Thanks so much!!”

While on the subject of client testimonials, I wanted to share our YouTube page for those who haven’t seen it.  It’s a place to see reviews from both male and female clients with all hair types.

Hairstyles for Fine Hair – 3 Ways to Make Waves

Hair Styles for Fine Hair - 3 Ways to Make WavesI have major full hair envy. I see all these seemingly effortless hairstyles where the hair goes on forever and think, “I wish”!

Thanks to products like Ovation Cell Therapy and accessories like the sock bun, even I can take my hair from limp and lifeless to full and bodylicious.  There are also countless styles out there that add volume to fine hair like mine.  My personal favorite is still the loose curl look.  Unless you’ve never been on Pinterest (aka hiding under a rock), you’ve seen numerous ways to get these so-called beachy waves.  Here’s the thing…many of the tutorials I’ve seen and tried just don’t work on my stick straight, fine hair.

So, in a state of end-of-summer denial, I went on a search and found three effective and easy ways to get those beachy waves, specifically for fine hair.

  1. Mini buns (overnight) – Separate almost dry hair into 5-10 pieces.  The more pieces, the tighter the curl. Twirl the strand, and then curl it up into a bun. Pin or use a hair tie to secure them and make sure the ends are included in the bun. Sleep with the buns it, then simply pull them out in the morning.  Some of the buns may fall out overnight so have your curling iron ready.
  2. Flat iron, pull and twist (30 minutes and a little practice) – I know I said “easy” in the intro above and this one isn’t difficult, but it does take a bit of practice and maybe a few You Tube tutorials. First, use Ovation’s Thermal Protection spray to avoid damage from the flat iron heat.  Start with the bottom of your hair, clip the top of the hair out of the way.  Hold a section (thin or thick depending on the curl you’re looking for) and pull the flat iron through the hair to about 4-6 inches away from your head. Start with one panel of the flat iron facing you. Pull a few inches then twist so the other panel is facing you.  Its twist, pull, twist, pull till you’re at the end of the strand.  Wait til the hair is cool to run your fingers or a wide tooth comb through it.
  3. Curling iron wrap around (30-45 minutes) – This is easiest if you use a curling iron similar to this. I love this particular one because it comes with a glove! Again, start by using Ovation’s Thermal Protection (link) spray to avoid damage from the curling iron.  First, you’re going to separate the hair into pieces and clip the rest out of the way.  Start at about 4-6 inches from your head and wrap each piece of hair around the curling iron.  Using a glove makes it easier wrap the entire length of the hair without burning your fingers. Repeat those steps for each piece of hair and wait for it to cool.  Lastly, run your fingers or a wide tooth comb through it.

I suggest trying a few of these out to see which results you like best, then just enjoy your voluminous, curly hair!

For photos and more detailed instructions, see our “Hair How Tos” board on Pinterest.  While you’re there, make sure to follow our boards for fun hair stuff and exclusive Ovation Promotions!

If you’re looking for an easier way to add volume on an every day basis, make sure to use the Advanced Cell Therapy System.  For more information about Ovation Hair, visit our website: www.ovationhair.com

Natural Ingredients for Healthy Hair

In the last post we discussed foods that provide nutrients to promote thicker, stronger, and longer hair.

Did you know that Ovation hair care products contain many of the same vitamins and proteins? They do! And I don’t know about you, but when it comes to things that are being absorbed into my scalp, words like vitamins, plant extracts, and proteins are what I want to hear.

This means that while you’re cleansing and conditioning your hair with Ovation, you’re providing the scalp with beneficial ingredients, resulting in healthy hair!

The products in our hair care line contain many ingredients (you can see them here), but what makes them unique is that each one of them contains our special blend of extracts, vitamins, and proteins. This combination of Ovation nutrients is designed to enhance the appearance and the condition of the hair through action at the scalp, root and hair fiber itself. Here are some of the other natural ingredients that are included in our Cell Therapy Systems:

  • Keratin Protein - a protein derived from sheep’s wool, this extract contains the needed amino acids to help repair damaged hair and nails.
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice - a leaf juice derived from the Aloe Vera Leaf that has a history of healing and soothing burns and skin irritations.  It also contains Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Carotene (vitamin A), and Folic Acid which promotes healing and cellular renewal.
  • Serenoa Serrulata Fruit Extract - Saw Palmetto Extract is derived from palm fruit and blocks DHT and antigen receptors which is one of the causes of baldness.
  • Allantoin - a healing and soothing plant extract for the skin and scalp.

Our products do not contain any medicine or chemicals and our Advanced Cell Therapy formula is paraben and sulfate free.  We take pride in our high quality ingredients that promote the health of the scalp, hair cells and follicles to provide the best results for thicker, longer, stronger hair.

Enjoy! – Emily

Beat the Heat with These Easy Up-Dos

This late-summer heat wave is a perfect excuse not to spend hours styling your hair, but it’s definitely not the time to neglect your style in general.  Luckily, it has inspired some fun, chic, and easy-to-style dos that are guaranteed to keep you cool (in more ways than one).

These three styles not only beat the heat, but are my favorite because whether you’re headed to the office, back-to-school, or even to the grocery store, they’ll save you time.  In ten minutes or less, your hair will be ready for the day…and the best part, no one has to know!

The oh-so-popular top knot – By far the coolest of options, the top knot bun can be worn tight or messy. To embrace your inner hipster, pull a tight pony extra high and create a tidy bun. The top knot is best when wanting to show off a fun collar or statement necklace and is my absolute favorite when accompanied by blunt bangs.

The fishtail braid – This takes a bit more time and even a little practice, but is a great option if you’re looking to dress up a casual outfit or to compliment a classy look in no time.  Since I haven’t attempted a fishtail braid since grade school, this tutorial helped me immensely.  I love how with this look, imperfections are encouraged.

Messy low bun – Whether your hair is long or short, you can achieve the beautiful-mess look by creating a low bun from a super loose pony. In my opinion, the more disheveled the bun looks, the better so run your fingers through and pull some hair down in front. The best part of the messy bun is that you can really make it your own.   If you have fine hair and want to add to your mini-bun, try the sock approach. If you want to mess it up to the max, pull it to the side or add some intermittent braids.

Which look do you like best? I’d love to know!

In the meantime, stay “cool.” – Emily

Five Non-Holiday Occasions to give Ovation Products as a Gift

If you think about it, gift giving is something most of us are doing year round.  It seems like there is almost always a birthday, wedding, anniversary or another occasion that we’re purchasing a present for.

When it comes to shopping for gifts, I consider myself an over achiever…an expert if you will.  But even the best of us can get discouraged when dealing with ongoing occasions, endless options, and contrasting personalities.

Here are some questions I consider when deciding on what to get who –

  • What would I want? Sounds a little narcissistic but many of my friends and even family members would enjoy the same gifts that I hope for.
  • What would they actually use? As a gift-giving-over-achiever, I’d hate to think my gift was headed for that dreaded bin in the closet or even worse…shipped off to be re-gifted!
  • What is something that they may not think to order on their own, but would really enjoy?

Let me make it really easy for you!  Give the gift of Ovation.

Whether it’s the popular Advanced Cell Therapy System, the Men’s Max Pack, or one of our Styling Products, Ovation products make for a unique gift that will undoubtedly bring a smile to their face.

This isn’t a new concept. In fact many of our clients give Ovation as a gift during the holidays, but next time you’re shopping for one of these NON-holiday occasions, think about giving the gift of thicker, stronger, longer hair:

Baby showers – During pregnancy women get used to thicker, fuller hair because of hormones that prevent shedding. Unfortunately a few weeks after the baby comes out, so does their hair…and quickly.  Using our Cell Therapy System during this time can help speed up and improve the quality of the re-growth.

Bridal showers – Any bride or groom wants the best hair possible for their big day.  If it’s their first time using our Cell Therapy System, beginning the regime a few months before the wedding (around the bridal shower) will produce the best results.

Birthdays – Whether shopping for a teenager or grandma, our products are a great way to start off that next year right.

Mother’s & Father’s Day – Don’t forget about Ovation products when it comes to Mom and Dad.  They deserve the best hair possible too!

Graduation – Whether your grad is leaving for college or entering the workforce, sending them off with Ovation will leave them confident and ready for a new start.

Shopping last minute? No worries. Our process is quick and easy. Most of the time, you’ll receive the product within a few days and with our flat shipping rate of $4.95 its cost efficient to make multiple purchases so you’re prepared for any occasion.

Don’t know which product to choose? Our most popular item is the Advanced Cell Therapy System, but there are plenty of options to choose from.  Of course if you need recommendations or have questions, give us a call.  We’d be happy to help!

We’re available at 888-411-3252 Monday – Friday 7:30am-5:00pm PST.

Happy shopping!  – Emily
