It's Finally Fall!
We find that Autumn can be a tricky time for managing our hair and scalp. The air becomes cooler and dryer, and this often impacts our scalp with an increase in dandruff and itching.
Here are some ideas to keep those white flakes under control:
1) Be purposeful in establishing your scalp care routine. Make time on wash day to rejuvenate your scalp & prevent yeast from taking advantage of a dry environment. This is critical, especially with our beloved protective styles! If it's itchy, don't just scratch it, handle it with quality products at the source. The LivSo Shampoo & Conditioner gently cleanse and soothe a sensitive scalp leaving it infused with the proper level of hydration for beautiful hair.
2) Seal in scalp moisture right after washing & conditioning but BEFORE drying & styling. The LivSo Moisturizing Scalp Lotion is great for that. It is loaded with ceramides which help protect and reinforce our skin cells & also helps to keep flaking to a minimum with willow bark extract. The coconut oil and shea butter in the lotion's formula keep the product feeling smooth & silky without weighing down hair follicles.
3) Though tempting, avoid the pitfall of using pure oils and nut butters directly onto the scalp to combat dryness. They don't provide lasting protection & often FEED the yeast, which causes seborrheic dermatitis to become worse. The same concept applies for co-washes - they are fine for periodic use but may cause dandruff to flare up over time.
4) Start using a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom to help keep your skin, including the scalp, and hair moisturized overnight.

Yes, we look forward to partnering with barbers and stylists across the country who wish to utilize LivSo products to help their clients. Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
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.
