The impact of an active lifestyle is very real for those of us with curly or coarsely textured hair types. Athletes put their bodies to the test everyday to reach higher goals - more reps, more passes, more miles, more sweat. The scalp is no exception - it sweats just like any other area of the body. These sweat patterns may differ from person to person, and some find that they sweat more in the scalp than on other areas of the body. Here are the tough facts: scalp sweat is filled with more sebum and may cause more odor. Often, this salty sweat takes its toll on our hair. This salt can dry out the hair and this is particularly difficult for curly or textured hair. If the hair is short, it may be easy to wash the hair after a long workout, but if the hair is long or in a protective style, the effort of washing the hair may prove to be difficult and time consuming.
The best thing is to develop a routine that works for you and promotes scalp health for beautiful hair. Start by cleansing on a regular basis, allowing the hair to stay healthy and hydrated. I created the LivSo Moisturizing Kit to help. The sulfate-free Shampoo is gentle enough to use up to three-times weekly according to our study. This will help rid your scalp of excess oil produced from summer athletic sweat, leaving your hair feeling fresh. The Conditioner helps to keep curls detangled and moisturized while rebalancing natural oils without leaving the hair feeling heavy. The Moisturizing Lotion is unique and effective. It may be applied daily to replenish the scalp's moisture and help repair the skin barrier that salty sweat can compromise. Even if you are only shampooing weekly, the Lotion helps to make the scalp more comfortable and itch free.

The scalp lotion is to be used simply as a moisturizer for dry scalp. It may be applied directly to the scalp to help relieve any dry itchy areas. Think of it as if it is lotion for any other part of the body, but instead it goes on the scalp!
Our products were tested during a clinical trial with adult study participants. The products were not studied for use on children. Please be advised that the products are not tear-free. In other words, if kids got the products in their eyes, their eyes would sting and they would experience a burning sensation.
LivSo was designed for people with dry itchy scalp and curly or kinky hair, regardless of ethnicity or gender. If you have a curly hair type that dries out easily with typical dandruff shampoos, this product is for you.
If you don’t have dry itchy scalp, but have dry curly hair, you will most likely still enjoy using LivSo.
If you have dry itchy scalp, but have straight hair, still consider trying LivSo. It may feel more moisturizing than what you are used to, but it should still help your dry itchy scalp.
