Read all about the natural ingredients in these rich moisturizing products and how you can improve the overall health of your hair and scalp.
How did LivSo get its start?
LivSo got its start in my dermatology office, through my interactions with patients who suffer with dry, itchy scalp.
What inspired the brand’s name?
We were driven to develop a brand that would help people “Live So… healthy, clean, beautiful, comfortable, etc. It also just happened to be that my daughter and son’s names are, Olivia and Solomon, so it became a name with a double meaning.
As a Dermatologist, what are the top 5 things you can tell us about good scalp and hair care?
- Good hair care flows from good scalp care. You cannot have one without the other. If your scalp is irritated, it will likely affect your hair at one point or another, so it’s important not to ignore your scalp.
- Hair and scalp care must be consistent.
- Hair care “breaks” may have consequences. We have to be very careful about protective styles because they may not allow for complete cleansing of the scalp without careful effort. That’s particularly true for individuals with dry, itchy scalp concerns.
- Find a routine that works well for you and stick with it!
- There is never time wasted in protecting what you care about.
What was the first product you created?
The LivSo Moisturizing Pack.
What does the LivSo product line consist of?
LivSo Moisturizing Shampoo, Moisturizing Conditioner, and Moisturizing Scalp Lotion.
Is it important to use these products together?
It’s important to use these products together for best results. Unlike many dandruff products that only have active ingredients in the shampoo, LivSo contains active ingredients in the Conditioner and Lotion as well.
This was designed to support the typical hair care strategy of those of us with curly or tightly coiled hair types. We often cannot wash our hair daily, but struggle with dandruff throughout the week. So, the complementary products help to potentiate the results beyond washday.
What are the key ingredients in the LivSo Shampoo and their benefits?
Xylitol - antifungal, anti-yeast properties
Glycolic acid - helps lift away dry flaky scalp while gently conditioning the scalp
Willow bark extract - also relieves flaking, gently
Coconut oil and shea butter are added for richness despite gentle lather effect of this sulfate-free formula
Are LivSo Products for all hair types?
Yes, and it’s also great for curly or tightly coiled hair, whether relaxed or natural.
Can LivSo products be used on relaxed hair?
Does the LivSo Moisturizing Conditioner also nourish the scalp?
Yes, it does.
What are the benefits of key ingredients used in LivSo Moisturizing Conditioner product?
Glycolic acid is also present in the conditioner, thereby potentiating the conditioning and flake-reducing properties of the shampoo in this second step.
Abyssinian oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and marula seed oil are included for richness that feels luxurious without leaving your hair feeling heavy or weighed down.
Lastly hydrolyzed oat protein and silk extract are present to help support strand strength during the conditioning and resultant detangling process.
How do you use the LivSo Moisturizing Lotion?
The Moisturizing Scalp Lotion is designed to be applied directly to the scalp after washing and conditioning the hair, before drying and styling. It may also be applied directly to the scalp as a moisturizer between wash days, to help relieve dry scalp.
What are the benefits of using this lotion?
The Moisturizing Scalp lotion relieves dryness, itching, helps manage flaking without ruining hair styles. Conditions the scalp to promote healthy hair. Contains ceramides which help to restore the natural barrier of the skin - so easily disrupted with scratching dry scalp.
Also contains willow bark extract to help carry out the function of the shampoo and conditioner throughout the week.
How often can you use this treatment?
You may use the lotion daily, and the shampoo and conditioner are suggested for use at least once a week, but may be used more often as needed.
Is this for all skin types?
Certainly. People with straighter HAIR types may also use LivSo, but they just may not need as much of the conditioner on their hair, per se.
What can women expect after using your hair care system?
Women and men may expect to have less dryness, itching and flaking of the scalp. If this does not occur, we recommend that individuals follow up with their dermatologist, as a prescription may be required.
In addition to using the LivSo hair care system, what other suggestions do you have for healthy hair and scalp maintenance?
Invest the time in self-care. Be consistent. It pays off over the long term for the health and maintenance of your hair.
What’s next for LivSo?
We are continuing to build our brand and help spread the word about these great products in hopes of expanding our distribution and perhaps developing other products in the future.
Each of our subscribers who receive the Moisturizing Pack in the September 2020 Box or all of the full-size products in the WOC Limited Box. What is the one thing you want them to know?
LivSo was developed by a black female dermatologist who recognized the need in the haircare market for a high-quality product to help manage dry itchy scalp in people with curly/tightly coiled hair that was accessible and affordable.
