Scalp psoriasis with big plaques

I have scalp psoriasis and I have been to see the dr. but my problem is that I try not to shampoo every day so as not to dry my hair out. The medicated shampoo helps alot..but if I skip washing my hair for a day my scalp has big plaques. I mean alot of girls especially don't like to wash their hair every day. The itching is not bad at all but skip one day of not shampooing with the prescribed shampoo and I have thick plaques. Any ideas would be appreciated whether medicine or just a good old fashioned home hair remedy would be wonderful. Thanks for all your input.

Re: Scalp psoriasis with big plaques

I have psoriasis on my scalp also and it has been much better since I have been using vigin coconut oil to condition my scalp and hair. I get it at the health food store. It is in a solid form but once you put it in your hand it turns liquid. Rub it into your scalp and hair and cover with a towel or shower cap and let it sit for an hour or so, or overnight. Wash it out and your hair will be very soft and the plaques will be softened and you can remove them. Do that once a week, or more if you like and your scalp will get better. Hope this helps you.
