It can be tough to manage scalp psoriasis. Psoriasis plaques on your scalp may be itchy, flaky and awkward to treat. When scalp psoriasis is blocked by the hair, finding a safe and effective treatment that doesn’t mess with your mane can get even trickier.

But living with scalp psoriasis doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your hair and manage scale build up. There are ways to make living with scalp psoriasis easier.
