Do you suffer from dry and itchy scalp? If you do, then you know how embarrassing it is when your hair flakes and there is dandruff all over your cute black shirt. I recently got the chance to try out a new product line called LivSo. LivSo was created to give people with curly hair a gentle and effective solution for dealing with dry scalp and brittle hair.

LivSo was created by Dr. Shari Hicks-Graham who is a Board-certified dermatologist. In her work, Dr. Graham-Hicks helped people with curly and kinky hair manage their scalp issues. Hicks- Graham recognized that scalp issues were could be a culprit that lead to hair loss. She noticed that there was not a product that truly worked for dry and itchy scalp as it should and that didn’t create additional problems for her patients. She began to notice how embarrassing, stressful and emotional these scalp issues were for her patients. So, Dr. Hicks-Graham decided to do something to help with her patients’ scalp issues. LivSo’s mission is to give people with curly and kinky hair a gentle and effective solution for dealing with dry scalp and brittle hair. LivSo was created based on scientific expertise and clinical experience. 

Moisturizing Shampoo 

This Moisturizing Shampoo has key ingredients such as coconut oil, glycolic acid and xylitol that help to reduce dryness, flaking, and itching. It has a very rich consistency and leaves your hair feeling clean and not stripped. It’s sulfate free and can be used on relaxed and natural hair. Some of the key ingredients include coconut oil to keep the scalp healthy and also to help with hair growth.

My Thoughts 

I was impressed that it did not leave my hair stripped. I am always skeptical of shampoos that are geared towards dry scalp because in my experience they leave your hair feeling stripped, but this shampoo did not. I also noticed that with multiple uses my dandruff has been under control.

Moisturizing Conditioner

This moisturizing conditioner has hand­-selected ingredients that are formulated to help hydrate your hair and scalp. This conditioner is also very rich to give your hair slip and help ease the detangling process. 

My Thoughts 

I was impressed by the slip in this conditioner. If a conditioner does what it says it will then I am sold. Another plus, is this conditioner is infused with Abyssinian oil to help provide your hair with a natural shine plus moisture.

Moisturizing Lotion

The moisturizing lotion is very lightweight. It is intended for use on the scalp to help condition and strengthen the hair. You can use it as a leave-in or as a daily moisturizer. It is infused with willow bark extract to exfoliate your scalp and remove flakes.

My Thoughts

I used this for a daily moisturizer and my scalp felt amazing! I felt a difference in my scalp after using it.

My Overall Review 

I love the fact that this line was created by a dermatologist who saw a need to help her patients who suffered from dry scalp. Just the story behind the line alone made me want to try it. As a person who does suffer from dandruff and dry scalp who has thick curly hair, it is nice to see a line made with me in mind. I will keep these products in my regimen to use as maintenance for my dandruff.
