...feeling frustrated Keturah @keturah1

Itch, treatment

Hi, kinda new here but what do you all use to control your scalp psoriasis? I'm currently using Avalon shampoo( forgot the correct name) but any way I just hate having to wash my hair so often, styling it is a beast after every wash 😭

Hi Keturah. Welcome. When my scalp is bad I use TGel or Sebitar shampoo. Otherwise just my normal shampoo but always condition and gently comb out the flakes. I used to soak my scalp in oil coconut or grapeseed until the next morning.

Hi keturah! Pretty name😀! I also have scalp psoriasis. Been battling it since late last year! I use tea tree oil shampoo by Paul Mitchell and conditioner as well. Before I go to bed, I use prescribed scalp oil, it helps at night. I still get flaky though in the morning when I wash it off but helps from flaring up. I also use Vaseline around my hairline and sometimes I use evoo mix with my scalp oil.

Hi Keturah, I don't have scalp P anymore but I sometimes use tar shampoo to keep it at bay. Nice mint smell ;)

Welcome to Flaym, Keturah! My scalp is best when I use oil soaks to keep the itching and flaking down. I used to use medicated shampoo with some results but much better with oil than shampoo. I also put Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion on my scalp when it is dry which helps massively for me too. Not heard of or tried Avalon but thanks for the tip!

I use capasal shampoo then a prescribed scalp treatment but if I don't use regularly I get a scabby nose convinced it's the P causing it

HI Guys, I am new to scalp P. I have been battling it for over a month and was unsure what it was. Any tips on what to use or do to avoid flare ups?

Michelle @michelle1021

Hi Daisy, I used yo have scalp P, but I only used a type of soft tar shampoo. I don't use any scented products on my body apart from Chanel. I now only use headxand shoulders shampoo and once a werk i wash my hair with the tar shampoo. It doesnt smell like tar, maybeca bit but its mosly a mint flavour. Maintain a healthy diet and some flaymers will suggest a scalp soak. Good luck and I wish you well :)

Organic hemp oil scalp mask. Read reviews and tried it. You must be consistent and its hard to shampoo out but there are long-term effects.

Catherine @clammyhands

I used to use that shampoo!! But now I use whatever shampoo and then follow it with diluted organic apple cider vinegar "with the mother". Its never worked better for me.
