1. You’re not alone.
Remember that millions of people have psoriasis.
2. Mention any sensitivities.
For example, tell your stylist if you are sensitive to heat before they start to blow-dry your hair.
3. Share your routine.
If you use a medicated shampoo, bring it with you so your stylist or barber can use it during your visit.
4. Treat the day before.
Shampoo or use treatments the day before your visit to minimize flaking.
5. Remind them to go easy.
“Gentle” is the key word in dealing with scalp psoriasis. Remind your stylist to go easy when using hard brushes and combs, and not to brush excessively.
