I tried the products several months before Melinda began advertising it.
I have always had very fine hair and it had begun thinning significantly after I stopped taking hormone replacement meds that I had taken since a radical hysterctomy when I was 29.
My doctor first prescribed minoxidil and I continued using it after it was OTC, however I got tired of the morning and night applications and wanted something easier.
About a year before purchasing the Ovation products I stopped having periodic perms and began letting my hair grow.
I used the Ovation products exactly as directed for three months and did not notice any thickening of my hair and no more sheen or appearance than I get with other premium shampoos.
In fact, I noticed that I seemed to be losing my hair - there was more than usual in my hairbrush each time I brushed.
I did not repurchase the products and have gone back to using minoxidil and my hair is again getting thicker, there is a lot of new growth during the past 4-5 months.
It may work for some but did not work for me and it was, in my opinion, much too costly.
