Quick and easy way to test your hair strength

Quick and easy way to test hair strengthHealthy hair is both strong and resilient and while you may think these qualities are easy to spot, they’re not.  Here is a quick and easy way to test just how strong and flexible your hair is.

The Steps:

  • Starting at the root, pluck a single strand from behind your ear.
  • Hold one end of the hair with your thumb and index finger.
  • Using your other hand, run your fingernail along the strand from the top to the bottom (sort of like curling ribbon).  Once you reach the end, the strand will curl up.
  • Hold the strand tight again for a few seconds and release.

The Results:

If the hair coils up again, the hair is strong and healthy.  If the strand remains straight or creates a looser curl, it is weak and unfortunately needs repair.

What to do:

If you find that your hair is on the weaker side, there are a few steps you can take to improve its health.

  1. Moisturize and protect.  The hair is weak so you need to focus on protecting the strands from breakage and further damage.  You can do that by using a Thermal Protection Spray, reducing heat exposure, and adding moisture to the hair strands. Use the Ovation Crème Rinse Moisturizer daily and a Deep Conditioning Treatment either once a week or twice a month.
  2. Nourish.  While you’re taking steps to protect the existing hair, you can also work to create healthy re-growth by nourishing the scalp.  The Ovation Cell Therapy will provide the scalp (& damaged hair) with vitamins, protein, extracts and more.  Applying these nutrients directly to the scalp will create long-term healthy (& much stronger) hair.

Even if your hair didn’t pass the test this time, by taking these simple steps, your hair will be back to its bouncy self sooner than you think.

Stronger hair is within reach!

2013 New Year’s Resolutions that your Hair will Love

Can you believe 2013 is next week? The whole New Year’s resolution thing gets me very excited.  It’s a good exercise not only because of the hope it brings for an upcoming new year and fresh start, but it also requires reflection and for me, a strong appreciation for the last year.

New Years Resolutions your Hair will Love

It’s interesting to think about what resolutions people make and why, the inspiration behind the decision, and whether they’ll follow through.  There are of course the standard resolutions and those that are unique as we are.  At Ovation we’re motivated by hair health so that is one thing I consider when deciding what resolutions to make.

These resolution ideas will not only make you feel great, they will give your hair a happy new year too!

Drink more water – Drinking more water is a great resolution because it’s measurable, attainable, wonderful for overall health and the health of your hair!  Each strand of hair is made up of about 25% water, so your hair needs to stay hydrated to remain healthy.  The scalp also needs water to keep the hair shaft moisturized.  Each person should drink half their weight in oz of water per day.  Whether this means cutting down on other drinks like sodas or just increasing your water intake, this is one easy resolution that has huge rewards.

Eat healthier, no junk food – Eating healthy is by far one of the most notorious of resolutions and probably also one of the first to be abandoned.  Choosing a healthy diet benefits your hair immensely because it’s the most effective way for your body to get the nutrients it needs.  If your body isn’t getting those nutrients, your scalp health becomes less of a priority and can deteriorate.

Know that healthy is an important word here and eating healthier and decreasing junk food is very different than losing weight in an unhealthy way.  Severe weight loss and crash diets are one of the main reasons for hair loss.

Take a multivitamin – As mentioned above, the best thing you can do for your hair is to make sure your body is healthy, but even eating healthy doesn’t guarantee that you’re getting all the nutrients you need. Taking a daily multivitamin will provide you with a great source of vitamins and minerals that are crucial to good health.  Another huge benefit to taking the right multivitamin is that it will keep your scalp, hair, and skin healthy as well.

We recently launched a multivitamin that includes vitamins that do just that. The Ovation Multivitamin also has added extracts from all natural roots, herbs, plants, and fruits that are known for their health and hair benefits.

Go natural – Many people are not only introducing natural and organic food items into their diets, but are also committing to the use of naturally derived body and hair care products. After all, these items are being consumed too when absorbed into the skin.  By purchasing naturally derived products, you’re getting higher quality ingredients which of course make your scalp happy. You’re also avoiding harsh chemicals that could be building up on your scalp, causing irritation and possibly even worse.

Ovation products are naturally derived and contain vitamins, antioxidants, plant extracts, and aromatherapy scents that all work to promote healthy hair.

Quit smoking – We all know that smoking causes all types of health problems, so while your lungs and heart will be very happy without nicotine, so will your hair. Smoking is said to induce both premature hair loss and graying because it interferes with the circulation that the scalp and follicle need. Carbon Monoxide and other toxins found in cigarettes make it difficult for your cells to reproduce into healthy cells, including the cells needed for hair growth and strength.

When it comes to resolutions, the options are endless so whether you choose a resolution that benefits your hair or not, make this New Year a great one and may 2013 be your best year yet!

Healthy Hair Series: Use a Wide Tooth Comb for Thicker Hair

Here at Ovation, it’s no secret that we want you to have healthy hair.  Because we don’t create miracles we can’t promise to create that for you, BUT with our product line specifically made to promote healthy hair and our knowledge of the how your hair works, we’d love to help you achieve the healthiest hair possible.  With that in mind, we’re developing a series of posts on the blog all about hair health.  This series will include tips and tricks on both how to improve the hair you have and improve the health of future growth.  Not only that, the tips we’ll discuss are meant to help you achieve Thicker, Stronger, and Longer hair! Some tips will be quick and easy, things you can do every day.  Others may require a bit of dedication or explanation and we’ll dive into those too.

This series is meant to be interactive so let us know if you have input or suggestions.  We’d love to hear what you you’d like to achieve and we can discuss ways in which to get there.

Use a wide tooth comb for thicker hair
Today’s Healthy Hair Tip: Use a Wide Tooth Comb for Thicker Hair

Making the switch to a wide tooth comb from your everyday brush seems a little weird, right? There are a lot of people that think they serve two entirely different purposes. The fact is, they don’t and making that simple change can have huge benefits.  Brushing your hair, especially vigorous brushing or with harsh bristle brushes can literally rip your hair apart.  Not only does this break pieces off, it pulls healthy strands completely out, especially when the hair is wet. Over time this leaves your hair weak and lifeless.

Using a wide tooth comb gently detangles the hair so it decreases breakage and shedding which will keep your hair strong.  Strong hair strands are thicker, creating an overall fuller head of hair. Sounds easy for some, but I know that using a comb like this won’t work for everyone every day.  If you have a hair type where a wide tooth comb isn’t ideal for primary use, consider working it into your hair routine in some way.  Decreasing brush use to a few times a week can make a difference.  Remember it’s really important to be gentle; patience is the key to avoid breakage while detangling your hair.  The best thing about today’s tip is that wide tooth combs are inexpensive.  Even the best brands are under $5 so it’s at least worth giving it a try.

Healthier, thicker hair is within reach!

That’s exactly why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new Healthy Hair and Scalp Multivitamins.  They are available now!

The Ovation Multivitamin contains a propriety blend of ingredients that are specially formulated for those who want thicker, stronger, and longer hair*. The vitamin complements Ovation’s hair care line by promoting healthy hair, skin, and scalp from within*. This unique multivitamin contains 11 vitamins, 6 minerals, amino acids and extracts from exotic and all natural roots, herbs, plants, and fruits. These ingredients were specifically chosen for their abundant health properties and are a great source of vitamins and minerals that are crucial for overall health.

Whether you’re already taking a multivitamin or not, they are worth a try!  Here’s why…

The BEST thing you can do for your hair is to make sure your body is healthy.  Taking our supplement on a daily basis will provide you with a great source of vitamins and minerals that are crucial to good health.  Another huge part of hair health is making sure that your scalp, hair, and skin are getting the proper nutrients as well.  We have carefully chosen not only vitamins that do just that, but also extracts from all natural roots, herbs, plants, and fruits that are known for their health and hair benefits.

Check out the list:

  • Aloe Vera – Aloe is most commonly known for its soothing and healing affects on the skin. The plant contains protein, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B12 and E, essential fatty acids and is also naturally rich in vitamin C and amino acids. It is said to have anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-viral properties.
  • Burdock – Burdock consists primarily of carbohydrates, volatile oils, plant sterols, tannins, and fatty oils that are said to give it anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial effects.*  Burdock is also a rich source of potassium, iron and calcium.
  • Ginger – Most commonly used as a cooking spice, ginger is also an herbal remedy. Ginger root contains phenols, a plant compound that is said to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Rosemary – Rosmarinic acid, a natural polyphenolic antioxidant found in rosemary, has been found to have anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant functions.  Rosemary is one of most common herbs used for aromatherapy. The essential rosemary oil is a main ingredient in the industry of cosmetic products because of its analgesic, aromatizing, anti-inflammatory, effects.
  • Capsicum – Capsaicin is a flavorless, odorless chemical concentrated in the veins of chilies and peppers (aka Capsicum). Capsicum contains Vitamins A and C, and beta-carotene that are said to have antioxidant properties and neutralize the free radicals responsible for damaging tissue and cells.
  • Horsetail – Horsetail is a member of the Equisetaceae family; the sole survivor of a line of plants going back three hundred million years. The plant is high in silica, potassium, ascorbic acid, equisetonin and caffeic acid, all these contributing to its health benefits. The active components in horsetail have antimicrobial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Nettle Leaf – Nettle leaf has been used medicinally for hundreds of years for its anti-inflammatory properties. This herbal remedy has been used for a variety of reasons, from alleviating the symptoms of arthritis to flushing out toxins from the body and reducing water retention.
  • Saw Palmetto Berries – Saw palmetto is an extract derived from the berries of the saw palmetto fan palm.  It’s been used for hundreds of years in several forms of herbal medicine as a diuretic and anti-inflammatory.
  • Red Sage – the Red Sage plant, also known as sage, is derived from the Latin meaning “to save.” This herb had an early reputation to be a cure-all. Sage contains a variety of antioxidants — in the form of volatile oils, flavonoids and phenolic acids. Sage also contains antioxidant enzymes, including superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase.

Most of the herbs and extracts have anti-something affects…antibacterial, anti-histamine, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic.  These properties are very beneficial to the body as a whole, but you may be wondering how an anti-histamine or antibiotic can help improve hair and scalp health so let me explain…

Anti-inflammatory ingredients can sooth scalp irritation and inflammation causes many of the problems associated with unhealthy hair.  Anti-bacterial and anti-histamine components can treat many of the causes of scalp irritation. Antioxidants are crucial in protecting cells from damage, including hair follicle and scalp cells.  They are said to prevent hair loss and boost growth.  Anti-fungal and anti-septic elements are helpful in treating a variety of scalp issues, including dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis.

The vitamins, minerals and amino acids included in the Ovation multivitamin are as follows:  Vitamin A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin, B6, Folic Acid, B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Zinc, Copper, and Lysine.

These vitamins, like the herbs and extracts, also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects as well as circulatory and digestive health benefits.* Why are these benefits important for hair health? An active, healthy digestion process allows your body to absorb nutrients that is needs and a healthy circulatory system help deliver those nutrients to your scalp.  The result is healthier hair!

Another great thing about our vitamins? The price! We’re offering a 60 day supply for only $12.95. That is definitely a small price to pay for healthy hair and scalp.  They are also gluten and soy free! http://ovationhair.com/vitamins.html

Enjoy :)

Does Ovation Cell Therapy Work? Client Testimonial

At Ovation, we love hearing from our clients and we’re lucky to get product reviews and testimonials on a daily basis.  This one came in last week from Maria A:

“I am part Chinese. I have always had thick hair, but it was always coarse and opinionated. Now it minds me! My stylist comes from a family who has been ‘in the business’ for more than one generation. Neither she nor her mother can believe the changes it has made in my hair. There have always been so many styles I liked, but they’d say…”ummm, not for your hair”…but now, I am going to get one of the cute cuts I had never been able to have before! Thanks!!

We’re so glad to hear that Maria, thank you! Enjoy that new cute cut you’re able to get.

Tips to avoid hair breakage – Thicker Hair is Possible!

Hair breakage happens to the best of us and unfortunately, it’s pretty much unavoidable. Breakage is what can make hair feel coarse and dry, and when really bad, unhealthy and thin.

Ovation Hair - Tips to Avoid Hair Breakage

There is good news though; you can significantly reduce hair breakage by taking these simple steps.

Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet – When your hair is soaking wet, it’s at its weakest state. Vigorously brushing through wet hair will most definitely cause strands to break.  The best thing is to wait until it’s dry or at least drier.  If you can’t wait, gently use a wide-tooth comb to de-tangle it instead of a brush.  In general, being a little more gentle on your hair can make a big different in the amount of breakage you experience.

Avoid heat styling as much as possible – It is best to avoid heat styling completely, but that would be near impossible for many of us.  Even blow drying for less time or decreasing the use of curling and flat irons a few days a week will help. Another way to avoid heat damage and breakage is to use a thermal or heat protection spray everyday and especially before styling.

Trim your hair regularly – Although you can decrease the amount of split ends, they are inevitable. Once you have them, the only way to get rid of them and the best way to prevent further damage, is to trim them off.   A split end can work its way up the hair strand making it weak and the hair will eventually break off.

Avoid tight hairstyles- Tight hairstyles like ponytails and buns can pull the hair a bit too much, causing it to break. Tight braids, extensions, and other longer-term styles are especially damaging.

Take supplements – Taking a multivitamin will help the body get what it needs to stay healthy, which is the best thing for your hair.  When the body is healthy, new growth of hair is too and healthy strong hair doesn’t break as much.

Invest in a great shampoo – Purchase a shampoo that contains vitamins, minerals and natural ingredients.  These nutrients can keep the hair strong and healthy and remove damaging build-up. Sulfate free shampoos are best because they clean your hair without removing oils that your scalp needs.

Decreasing hair breakage can have a great effect on the look and feel of your hair!  It will not only look healthier, but it will be thicker, shinier and much more manageable…and who doesn’t want that?!?

As I started to think about how to avoid breakage, I realized I need to show my hair a little more love in general. From being gentle when towel drying and brushing to loosening my top knot, a little love can go a long way.

What are you going to do to show your hair some love?

Fall 2012 Must Have Hair Accessories

I just love hair accessories! You know those days when you don’t even know where to start when it comes to styling your hair? Or the days that you spend all this time on your hair just to feel like there’s something missing? Hair accessories can come to the rescue! They not only make it easy to add style to an otherwise boring do, they can also give a little inspiration and sometimes that’s all I need to turn an ok hair day into a great one.

Whether you’re looking to pump up the volume, add flavor to a bland style, or make your effortless do seem effortful, there are endless hair accessory options this fall.

Fall 2012 Must Have Hair Accessories
With options ranging from formal, handmade, and pricey to casual, inexpensive and just wacky, narrowing down the search is key.  For everyday hair needs, I look for hair accessories that are casual, easy, fun and trendy.

With that in mind, these are my must have fall accessories for 2012:

  1. This light weight beanie is perfect for fall and looks amazing with a side, messy braid. The sparkles add a sophisticated touch to this grungy look.
  2. A double headband takes a messy pony or bun up a notch and these 80’s inspired colors are sure to keep your day bright.
  3. Ponytail hardware is all the rage and I love the Geo Ponytail Holder in particular because it’s super trendy, but still dainty unlike some of the others.
  4. This goddess-looking stretch flower headband looks great with loose curls and can dress up a more casual outfit.
  5. With size options ranging from mini to extra large, these hair doughnuts are a cheap way to make a perfect bun every time.
  6. Want to wear your hair down, but add a little (or big) something? The Jumbo Hair Clip will keep the hair out of your face and will definitely turn some heads.

No matter which accessory you chose to try out this fall, Ovation styling products (Volume Enhancer and Thermal Protection spray) will keep your hair voluminous and healthy looking all day.

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!
