5 Shampoos for Scalp Psoriasis That You’ll Fall in Love With

Disclaimer: If you wear hair extensions, it’s best to consult a hairstylist at Hair Extensions of Houston before signing up for any hair treatments or using any hair care products.

Scalp psoriasis is a skin condition that causes the skin in the infected region to appear red, raised, and with scaly patches. These may appear as patches in several locations or take over the entire scalp. Although the disorder doesn’t transmit from person to person, it can spread on the back of the neck, inside or behind the ears, and on the forehead.

As scalp psoriasis worsens, it may cause excessive dryness, bleeding, a burning and itchy sensation, and fine yellow or white flakes on the scalp. About 45 to 56 percent of people are currently suffering at the hands of scalp psoriasis; if you’re one from the lot, here’s a list of shampoos for you to reduce flaking and itching on the scalp:

1. Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo Extra Strength

This is a shampoo that dermatologists recommend as it contains about 1 percent of coal tar. Coal tar is known to assist in shedding dead skin cells from the scalp’s surface and decrease the growth of newer skin cells. The shampoo is formulated with deep conditioning properties to make the hair more manageable.

2. DHS Sal Shampoo

For only $11, this shampoo is a steal! It contains salicylic acid, also referred to as a peeling agent, that helps remove or soften thick, scaly patches from the scalp. The medications are likely to penetrate further into the skin with the scales removed, thus increasing their effectiveness. The DHS Sal Shampoo removes scales without further irritation on the scalp or damaging hair strands.

3. Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner

With three percent salicylic acid, this shampoo targets scalp psoriasis symptoms. It counteracts redness, itchiness, and flaking with its calming zinc complex.

Note: Before you work with a conditioner over your hair extensions, read Brenda’s prescribed method. A conditioner should only be used on the ends of the hair shaft, else it may slip the hair extensions out.

4. MG217 3% Coal Tar Formula Shampoo

This shampoo is recommended for those tackling severe scalp psoriasis. It contains significant coal tar content, which effectivity soothes irritation while eradicating scalp buildup.

5. Dove Derma Care Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Anti Dandruff Shampoo

Dove’s special edition contains zinc pyrithione, that’s less intense than coal tar yet effective for addressing dandruff, flaking, and dryness.
