I am asked to review new products occasionally by clients. This is my latest review posted below. This is my email response verbatim:
I just reviewed the ovationhair.com website and called their main number. I spoke with a woman named Carlee (Vice President of Sales) who gave me some additional info. She said that she was going to email me the ingredients for their Cell Therapy Cream, but I have still yet to receive it.
Here is the deal. There is only one product that they claim has an impact on the hair cycle. That is the Cell Therapy Cream. They say that the amino acids in the cream help naturally extend the life of the growth phase. There is absolutely no mention on their website of how this happens and there is only one before and after picture of the President of the company. The woman that I spoke with says that they do not claim to treat pattern hair loss. It simply gives the appearance of thick fuller hair. I think that they are marketing more towards improving the quality of the existing hair and providing a healthier environment for future growth.
To be honest, I am not impressed. The only bit of research I found was in regard to Panthenol (vitamin b5) and how it will extend to the life of the anagen phase of the hair. This is true. That is why there are high levels of b5 in both the PM and PMb topicals that both you and _____are using.
I will review the ingredients of the Cell Therapy Cream when it arrives. I think that this product is designed for people who have damaged hair or have thinning due to nutritional inadequacies. In my opinion, this is not going to be an improvement to either of your treatment programs.

UPDATE July 14th, 2009
This is a copy of an email sent to me through www.hairgrowthcenters.com from an Ovation Hair Product user sent July 13th, 2009.
User from: Lemon Grove, CA 91945
Subject: Ovation Hair therapy Products
I tried this product for 3 months with no results, when I called to get my money-back guarantee, they stated I needed to return the bottles back to them and that I would only receive money back for the last order I placed and not all the money. I happened to have the last 2 items I order which were the Hair therapy treatment and the rinse.
I received a refund for only the last 2 products. The ad does not state you should keep your bottles and return them if not satisfied. And they do not state that you will only receive a refund for the last order and not all if you continue to use the product as they state for results, 3 months.
this company does not meet their advertised promises.
UPDATE January 29, 2014: Free Phone Consultation Provided
Due to the overwhelming response to this blog post, I am making this update. Many women who have tried Ovation for Hair Loss have been left unsatisfied and in some cases, the product has made them worse due to the high level of chemicals in their product.
Women's hair loss is relatively simple and can be corrected by making minor adjustments to hormones naturally that will combat the hereditary influence of female pattern hair loss. I am now taking personal phone consultations at no cost to help the women who have not had success with Ovation or other products.
Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Personal Consultation. My Hair Loss Clinics have been helping women since 2002. I am more than happy to help.
