What's In Your Cabinet?

Did you know that LivSo is founded by a Board Certified Dermatologist? Dr. Shari Hicks-Graham is on a mission to give people with kinky, curly hair gentle, effective solutions for dry scalp and brittle hair. 


Of course, we would LOVE for you to achieve your healthy hair goals with LivSo, but here are some things to remember as you're spring cleaning your cabinets: 

  • Avoid Sulfates and Parabens — Review your hair products and remove anything that has one or both of these ingredients. These ingredients can dry out natural and relaxed hair and can also disrupt our endocrine system.
  • Be Careful with Oils — Whether it's jojoba oil or castor oil, be mindful of these oils, especially in the warmer months. Over usage directly on the scalp can lead to clogged pores and excessive dandruff. We recommend using a scalp lotion like our Moisturizing Lotion.
  • Satin Bonnet & Scarves — Make sure you have one or both of these items in your toolkit to maintain your kinks and curls!
  • Head Wraps & Turbans — Listen to your edges and make sure when you're using these they are satin lined and that they are not causing too much tension.
  • Lightweight Shampoo — Your shampoo ingredients should be simple, clean, and moisturizing—like ours!
  • Hair Ties —  Choose hair ties that are soft with a lot of elasticity to avoid tangling and breaking.
  • Moisturizing Conditioner — Don't forget the conditioner! Even if it's just 5 minutes, remember to condition the hair and scalp after you wash.
