Ovation Hair – My Journey: Week One

Over the past few months I have been bombarded with Ovation Hair commercials on my local radio stations, and because I am SERIOUSLY unhappy with my hair I decided i would try it. Although it wasn’t on a whim. I talked to my friends about it, I talked to my mom about it, I read forum and blogs and checked out their website and after all that i was convinced to buy the gift pack.

I will say I saw some negative reviews but most of them were from people who were balding at a rapid rate. From what I understand It’s not for curing medical conditions or hereditary baldness. Although their ad is a bit … ummm… EXTRA ( for lack of a better word). Also, from the reading the website I have concluded that it is fine to continue to use whatever products it is that you currently use. Ovation would only be replacing your shampoo and conditioner. So I have 2 hair treatments that I started on before the ovation arrived.

1. Dr. Miracle Damaged Hair Medicated Treatment.

Although Dr. Miracle’s Website and commercials are a MESS. It has been useful. Whenever I use it My hair is more manageable. I usually use it after I get my hair trimmed. There are several CON’s to this product.. including the menthol. but It makes this mess called hair manageable.

2. I just started an awesome home made mixture.

It consists of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Carrot Oil, Castor Oil (The real kind.. it’s thick and smells) Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Cocoa Butter. My hair is way softer and I have seen growth in not only my hair but my nails. I note this because It’s not just ovation I’m using. Also because the product is most effective when you are taking care of your hair. ( my 2011 Hair care mantra is ” If  I wouldn’t let it sit on my skin I won’t put it in my hair”)

So, Tuesday of this week I FINALLY got my over priced Ovation Hair  Care system in the mail.  Because I heard a lot of great things about it I decided that I was going to use it that very moment!

It smells very good! ( as most hair products do) The cell therapy and the creme rinse are both very rich. The bottle has instructions on it… but as we all know, instructions on shampoo bottles and conditioner bottles are just there to tell you how to effectively waste the product.

From the testimonials and what i have read online, you should use cell therapy as a deep conditioner. I mixed a bit in a bottle with purified water and I’m using it as a leave in spray ( that way I can use some daily without wasting my money.)

My average starting length is 3.5inches ( there was an incident with gum.. sigh) My edges, my bangs and the middle of my head are my problem areas ( as far as breakage goes) My hair is thin and  can get quite dry. So it’s clear what i am looking for in using this product.

Over the next 6 to 7 weeks I will be using Ovation and taking pictures of my hair and at the end I guess we’ll see if there were any results.

Wish me luck!

P.S. the gift pack is a good buy if you dont frequently wash your hair. The Body scrub smell yummy too. However.. i don’t recommend using it on your whole body. Just your hands and feet.

  1. Hi Steph, I’m in the same boat with short hair, althuogh no gum incident :), and very fine, thining and breaking. I plan to order the Ovation and would love to hear how your results are coming. Also, would you send me the amounts you use for your homemade remedy and how often you use it? I’m 41 and freaking out about my hair. Thanks, KImberly

    • Well! the ovation has worked very well. My hair is definitely thicker than it has been in years. I grows VERY VERY FAST which is a little annoying when trying to maintain hair styles..
      I just mixed the ovation with purified water in a small spray bottle and used it daily. I cant give exact measurements. I also used a deep conditioner once a week. and i maintained moisture using shea butter, tea tree oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil and castor oil all mixed together.

      The most important part if keep ur air moisturized because the heavy amounts of protein can cause breakage. shedding is normal.. but if u don’t want to deal with it you should use galic shampoo… but not too frequently because shampoo strips natural oils.

      There really is no need to invest in Ovation’s shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo is comparable to hand soap… so it’s better to use a different brand.

      I should also point out that i used a lot of protective styles like braids. I also cut all heat products out of my life… like blowdryers, flat irons and hot combs. and i cant guarantee it will work for u. taking care of your hair is time consuming but the end result is worth it.

      • Thanks for the great feedback on Ovation Cell Therapy products. There is a growing Ovation Nation out there across the world!

    • i didn’t measure… just added what felt right. Which probably isnt very helpful for u. I’m sorry. there was more shea butter and coconut oil than everything else i preferred it to be solid. sorry again.

  2. Hey did you ever post pics from the ovation hair therapy? I really need to do something. Radiation made a lot of my hair fall out :(

    • I’m really sorry to hear that. I Hope everything is going well :-) I will post a blog some pics i took in october and december. I have braids right now, so my hair isn’t out.. but before i braided it, it was about collarbone length.

    • Melissa, my mom has recently done radiation and chemo. I’ve been using ovation cell therapy and really like the results, so I gave a bottle to mom. It really helped her hair grow back. Like Steph, I think the shampoo and conditioner are not worth the money.

  3. I am on my 3 week using the Ovation Advance Cell Therapy System. I leave the 3 larger bottles at the hair salon so I don”t have to carry it (or forget it) around. I just ordered the smaller 6oz size 3-pack as well for home and gym uses on the weeks I just can’t make it to the hair salon. Between my wash/set (at the salon) I will be wearingmy hair back in a bun so the product can really do its thing. By summer I hope to have longer fuller, even and less dry hair. The shampoo is detergent free so no stripping of natural oils nad the creme rince allows the comb to ease through after shampooing. The leave-in does leave a slight film but it keeps the hair from frizzing. So far so good.

  4. My hair broke from bleach, so it’s fine and fragile. I use Moroccan oil. this stuff is a miracle. my hair grows thick shinni silky!! They have moroccan oil shampoo, conditioner and oil. U should try it. it’s a miracle

  5. Hello, i am also thinking of buying the Ovation cell therapy because of the radio advertisement. I went natural two years and I am having a hard mentaining it. I also have very thin edges. My hair is very dry. I need help and i don’t want to go back to perm. I will put an order for it and also try your recipe. I don’t braid my hair with extension or weaves, so i can’t wait to get my hair back to when i was a child. Thank you for sharing. I will keep you posted
