Treatment, coping

How do people cope/deal with scalp psoriasis? (especially those with long hair) I have it all over my head and ended up cutting my hair really short so I could treat it easier but I'd love to grow my hair back. Any comments welcome

Ive seen youtubers using hemp oil for the scalp to relieve psoriasis temporarily. You can search hemp oil for psoriasis on youtube and you will see how that can be applied.

My dermatologist recommended "t gel". I used it for a bit and it kinda worked for me but I didn't like how it made my hair feel. I also use tea tree oil now and it works pretty well.

Thanks for the replies, guys! I'll have a look at your suggestions.

my partner has psoriasis on his scalp. I have to use this lotion on his hair every 2 days the down side is it smells like nit lotion and its so oily I have to wash my hands like 4 times after applying it

I've used specialty shampoo also it didn't work for me. What worked for me was diet elimination. It cleared all of my psoriasis patches in a bit more than one year, and I've had it for 10
