What is scalp psoriasis?
Scalp psoriasis is a stubborn, often recurrent skin condition that typically affects the back of the head, but can affect the entire scalp.
Conventional scalp care
The hair is great for covering the plaque and scale but is also an obstruction when trying to apply ointments and creams.
These emollient ointments smell bad, are difficult to apply and can be hard to wash out of the hair!
Leaving your hair looking greasy and smelling not so great!
My four key products to treat your scalp psoriasis
All of my clients use these four key products for their scalp psoriasis. These will not leave your hair greasy or smelly and are easy to apply.
- Scalp tincture
With an easy to apply applicator nozzle, this tincture is not only a cinch to use on your scalp, it has ingredients such as turmeric to help decrease swelling and inflammation.
Perfect for addressing the inherent inflammation that comes with psoriasis.
Other ancient herbs in this product will reduce itch by addressing the rapid proliferation of cellular overgrowth.
Apply to scales and wherever you are itchy but not to any broken skin, so if you’ve been picking your head avoid these areas.
- Psoriasis ointment
Made with beeswax and medicinal botanicals this product will deliver nourishing herbs to lift the scale away from the scalp, encouraging the scale to flake off and fall away.
It is a silky-smooth ointment that’s easy to apply and smells like a beautiful herbal bouqet.
Both products, the tincture and ointment are 100% natural, cruelty free, manufactured and produced here in Australia and made with love.

- Coal tar shampoo.
This is not a natural product, and it smells of tar, HOWEVER it works and is well tolerated by all of my clients.
The Neutrogena brand seems to be the favourite amongst my clients.
You need to leave this on your hair for 5-10 minutes and use twice weekly.
You can find this product here.
- Charlie and Evie Hair Care
Made by a hairdresser here in Australia these products won’t worsen your psoriasis and they smell amazing–Goodbye tar smell.
My clients use both the Hydrating conditioner and the hair masque.
Enriched with quinoa protein, argan oil, macadamia oil and shea butter to support, strengthen and nourish your hair.
If you don’t want to use products that aren’t natural, you can use the Charlie and Evie hair Care range as all the products are natural, vegan, sulphate and paraben free, and of salon quality.
