This is a very personal and embarrassing topic for me but I really wanted to share this with you. Maybe someone you know or yourself has had this happen. Back in high school I started to lose my hair. Not a few strands here and there. No I mean chunks of it fell off which was pretty gross and I had a bald spot on the back of my head. I was mortified and didn't understand what happened. I had to see a specialist who told me it was all due to stress. Stress? That's it? Yep, that's it.
So I did everything I could to help me relax. Quit my second job, drop a couple of my clubs, do some yoga but by that time I barely had any hair left and what little I did have was limp and fine. I used to use drugstore shampoo and conditioner but they made it worse. I used the high end brands like Paul Mitchell and they didn't do anything for me.
Last year my mother bought me a set of the Ovation Cell Therapy that she kept hearing over the radio. It came in a nice baby blue box with the shampoo, conditioner, hair treatment, body scrub, and a sponge.
I used this around April 2011 and at first I thought this stuff was decent but over priced. It smelled like coconut and kind of strong. I didn't care for the scrub and the reviews online were all mixed up, some say they lost more hair while others say it's a miracle worker.
Pictures say a thousands words.
This is me when I first started using this last year. The lighting is horrible so it looks like I colored my hair but I didn't.
This is me today January 2012. In less than a year I have a lot more hair.
I don't use Ovation anymore as much as I would love to because I think I'm allergic to it. I started having small red bumps on my scalp and my hair dresser said it was the shampoo I was using. I still kept using it because it was expensive and I wanted to finish the bottle.
It didn't magically make my hair grow over night and my hair is still fine but I think it made a huge difference. Keep in mind that each product we use works differently for each person. I once tried Suave shampoo and started shedding like crazy while I have heard other people say it's perfect for them.
Currently I'm trying out Regis Design Line Get it Pumped shampoo and conditioner. I'll review it once I'm done.
This is an incredibly long post and if you read all of it you get a big virtual cookie from me. Chocolate chip if you don't make fun of my ugly picture.
