What ingredients in Cell Therapy Hair & Scalp
Treatment make it effective?
Cell Therapy Hair Treatment nourishes the hair
and scalp with proteins, vitamins, and amino acids that bind and absorb into the hair shaft to
create thicker, longer, stronger, and visibly healthier hair.
How often should I use Cell Therapy Hair &
We recommend incorporating Cell Therapy into
your haircare washing regime 2-3 times per week. Do not exceed three Cell Therapy Hair Treatment
applications between shampoos. Overuse of Cell Therapy Hair Treatment may result in stiff or
weighed down hair, and possible breakage. Call us for a personalized regime to work Cell Therapy
into your haircare routine at 888.411.3252 Option 2.
Should I use Cell Therapy Hair & Scalp Treatment if I have a Brazilian
Blowout® or Keratin Treatment?
We recommend consulting with your stylist before incorporating Cell
Therapy into your hair care routine if you have a Brazilian Blowout or Keratin Treatment. Cell
Therapy contains keratin and proteins which could cause protein overexposure, leading to dry,
brittle hair. Please keep in mind our sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners are safe to use
Can I use Cell Therapy Hair & Scalp Treatment
with other hair growth or strengthening products?
Ovation products are not medicated; we do not
recommend that you use in combination with medicated hair growth products. Please consult your
stylist or dermatologist before incorporating any other product into our Ovation Hair Care
How much Cell Therapy Hair Treatment should I
apply with each treatment?
A quarter to half dollar size amount, depending
on hair length.
Which Cell Therapy System should I use?
Our Cell Therapy Systems are the perfect way to experience the
amazing benefits of Ovation products. These three-step systems provide a Shampoo, Cell Therapy and
a Conditioner that work synergistically to maximize performance and cost-savings.
The Cell Therapy formula is the same in each system – including
the Men’s Max Pack (fragrance varies for the men). The difference between the systems resides in
the moisture levels in the Shampoo & Conditioner which complete the system. We recommend choosing
your Cell Therapy System based on your hair type and/or hair care concern.
Individuals with dry, damaged hair we recommend our Moisture
System. For those with baby fine or limp hair, we recommend our Volume System which provides
minimal moisture. Our Balance system offers a balance of moisture and volume and is best for most
hair types, including fine hair types with dry ends. Our Color Protection System is perfect for
color-treated hair, formulated with Quinoa, rice proteins, amino acids and nutrients which provide
color protecting properties.
If you would like a personalized recommendation, our Personal
Account Representatives are available to help Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific
at 888.411.3252 Option 2.
How long do Ovation products take to work?
Our product formulations are hair maximizers,
and most customers notice that their hair appears stronger and thicker after a few uses; however,
typical results are apparent after 4-6 weeks. Results can vary for each client.
I only wash my hair a few times a month. Will
Cell Therapy Hair Treatment work for me?
Yes. When washing hair, use the Routine Therapy
Treatment method as directed on the bottle. Between shampoos, apply Cell Therapy Hair Treatment to
moist hair. Massage the product into the scalp using your fingertips. Leave in for as long as eight
hours (or overnight), then rinse. Many clients do not want to rinse their hair because of the
styling that they receive every 1-2 weeks, so they leave Cell Therapy massaged into their roots
like a lotion and wait for the next shampoo to rinse. Do not exceed three Cell Therapy Hair
Treatment applications between shampoos. Overuse of Cell Therapy Hair Treatment may result in stiff
or weighed down hair, and possible breakage.
If I wear extensions or relax my hair, can I
still use Cell Therapy Hair Treatment?
Yes. The ingredients in Ovation products are all
naturally derived, so they do not interfere with any chemical processing. Real extension hair may
absorb excessive protein, so it is important to concentrate application to the scalp. Refer to
stylist care recommendations for additional information.
Are the shampoo and Cell Therapy in your Men’s
Max Pack different from the other Ovation products?
No. All Ovation products are formulated exactly
the same and designed to serve the hair care needs of both men and women. The only variable is the
fragrance. The Men’s Shampoo is equivalent to the Volume Therapy Shampoo, with a more masculine
Why doesn’t the Men’s Max Pack include the
Our studies have shown that men typically prefer
not to use a moisturizer as part of their daily hair treatment. Our Men’s Max Pack includes only
the Men’s Therapy Shampoo and Cell Therapy Hair Treatment. For men who prefer a moisturizer, we
recommend our Balance system.
Can I apply the Hair Gel to dry hair?
Yes, Ovation Men’s Healthy Hair Gel can be
applied to wet or dry hair. The gel offers flexible hold and will vary depending on styling. For a
dry hold, use a small amount before blow-drying. For a firmer hold or a wet look, apply to wet hair
using a bit more product.
Conditioners & Mask
Will the Moisture Conditioner weigh my hair
No. We do not use oils or waxes that can weigh
down your hair.
Why do I need to use Moisturizing Conditioner?
Our Moisturizing Conditioner adds moisture and
softens your hair, as well as increases shine, prevents breakage, and maximizes hair length. Using
the Moisturizing Conditioner enhances the effectiveness of all other Ovation products by working
synergistically to balance proteins and maintain nourished, moisturized hair.
Will Ovation’s Volumizing Crème Rinse weigh my
No, ingredients are added for volume. We
recommend the Volumizing Crème Rinse for fine hair.
How often should I use the Intensive Repair
As often as you deem necessary. We recommend
using the mask once a week at a minimum – depending on hair condition.
Should I replace my crème rinse/conditioner
with the hair mask?
No. The Intensive Repair Hair Mask is a
moisturizing treatment to be used in addition to your regular routine. While conditioners provide
detangling benefits, the hair mask was developed to provide deep, intensive repair to your hair. We
recommend using this intensive repair hair mask once to twice a week depending on hair
Can I use Ovation Hair Shampoos every day?
Yes. Our Shampoos offer a gentle cleanse perfect
for everyday use. We recommend using Ovation Clarifying Shampoo 1x per week - 1x per month
depending upon hair needs.
Do Ovation Hair Shampoos contain sulfates?
The Volume and Moisture Shampoos are sulfate-
free. Our Clarifying and Lux Shampoos formulas include Sodium Laureth Sulfate, a gentle, foaming
surfactant that is derived from natural coconut extract. It is gentle on hair, and will not strip
away highlights, unlike other products containing harsher sulfates.

emollients alternatives to silicones that enhance hair’s shine and texture.
Does Flexible Hold mean strong or light hold?
Both, your look depends on how much spray you
use. Our formula is light enough to provide minimum hold to just set your look or strong enough to
hold a manicured style without making hair looks wet or stiff.
Will Ovation Finishing Spray help control frizz
