Re: How can you highlight your hair when you have scalp psorisis?
Hi melanie, I had a bit of the scalp problem last year...I actually rubbed a little Cortisone5 on the spots, and they eventually went away after awhile. But, at the time, I used both color and highlighting on my hair, and it didn't damage the hair or change the color. I did my own highlights, and only did a few areas around my face, so it wasn't my whole head. But, I didn't use the medicated shampoos; just regular shampoo for dry scalp. Maybe you could start out just doing a little bit of highlighting and see how things go, and then if it seems ok, then you could do a heavier highlighting. I also get perms, and my beautician said the perm solution actually can help dry the psorisis up.
