...feeling frustrated Joni @joni

Looks, coping, treatment

Does anyone else feel that blowdrying their hair with scalp psoriasis irritates it or helps it? Everywhere I've read says not to but mine feels less itchy after blowdrying but hopefully am not causing any more damage.

Blowdry with cold air setting ;)

I'we once recieved that advice, and that is great after a shower on wet hair.

I thought I was the only one, but I feel like blowdrying helps... maybe it blows all the loose flakes out haha!! :) x
