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!

Healthy Hair Tip: Using Accessories for Stronger 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 them 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.

Hair accessories for less breakage - 1Today’s Healthy Hair Tip: Using Accessories for Stronger Hair

Hair accessories are an easy way to take an otherwise boring hairstyle from drab to fab.  Whether it’s a basic headband, sophisticated ponytail holder, or small clip with some extra blink, I’m all for it!

Unfortunately some of the hair candy we love may be damaging our hair. I know, I know, not the news us hair accessory lovers want to hear.  Not to worry though, this post is all about the (many) options of hair accessories that don’t cause havoc on hair.  Why make the switch to less-damaging hair accessories? By decreasing breakage, you’re keeping your hair strong.  Stronger hair is fuller, more manageable, and healthier overall.  Check out the list of accessories that will leave your hair strong and you happy.

Head wraps – head wraps are not only trendy, they are also one of the most non-damaging hair accessory options.  In fact, many head wraps that cover most of your hair not only cause less damage, they can actually protect your hair as well.  Head wraps are also a great choice because they are usually made with a soft, non-snagging fabric, aren’t tight on the head, easy to get on/off, and are super comfortable!

Headbands – headbands are another hair accessory that, depending on the type, don’t cause breakage or damage.  Look for ones that are non-constraining without sharp edges, added hardware, or any other parts that may snag or tangle hair.

Clips – Claw clips and other large clips are a fantastic way to keep your hair up without pulling it too tight.  It’s important to choose a clip with a smooth finish and one that doesn’t break hair when it’s taken out.

Hair accessories for less breakage - 2Scrunchies – The scrunchie might be one of the only reasons that your hair misses the 90’s because the scrunchie is one of the most non-damaging hair accessories of all time.  Marc Jacobs has a new scruchie-ish product on the market, but for those who aren’t ready to bring the trend back, they are perfect for keeping your hair up at night.

Hair ties – For most, even if we switch to using less damaging hair accessories, a ponytail every now and then in inevitable.  Many hair accessory manufactures are creating better products and hair ties like these are a great alternative to the everyday elastic.  They not only look cute in your hair, they also work well around the wrist so are easy to literally keep on hand.

Absolute no-no’s – There are a few things to avoid at all costs when it comes to hair accessories.  Using rubber bands or accessories with exposed hardware are rusted or cracked, is a sure way to increase hair breakage and decrease its strength.

Using one or more of the non-damaging hair accessories listed above will get you one step closer to healthier, stronger hair.  Another way, of course, is by adding the Ovation Advanced Cell Therapy System to your daily routine.  For more information about our products see our website.

Enjoy stronger hair!

Taking a Multivitamin for Healthy Hair

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.

Daily Mulitivitamin for Healthy Hair & Scalp

Today’s Healthy Hair Tip: Take a Multivitamin for Healthy Hair

There are multiple benefits to adding a multivitamin to your daily routine.  Many of us don’t get the essential nutrients from the things we eat and a supplement can greatly improve the way our body works.

If our body works properly it’s going to produce the healthiest hair that it can.  Our scalp also needs proper nutrition in order to function in the correct way.   When looking for a daily supplement, there are certain vitamins in particular you’ll want to look for, that promote both overall health and hair health.  Vitamins C, E, and B provide anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and antioxidant effects.  These properties sooth the scalp, decrease irritation, and protect cells and follicles resulting in healthy hair.  Also look for vitamins that provide circulatory and digestive health like vitamin E and some of the B vitamins. When your digestive system works properly, you get the nutrients you need and a healthy circulatory system transports those nutrients to the scalp and hair follicle.

Ovation Hair has created a multivitamin that is not only formulated to promote overall health, but also includes herbs and extracts specifically known for their benefits to the hair and scalp*.  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.  Adding the Ovation Multivitamin to your daily routine is an easy and affordable way ($12.95 for a 60 supply) to achieve healthy hair.  For specific information, ingredients, and to purchase the Ovation Vitamins click here.

Enjoy healthy (thicker, stronger, and longer) hair!

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.

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

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!!!

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

Have a good hair day! – 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
