Scalp psoriasis, a chronic skin condition affecting the scalp, can be a source of discomfort and frustration. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the intricacies of scalp psoriasis, its symptoms, and effective management strategies. Discover how our specially formulated Mānuka oil-infused Shampoo and Conditioner for Sensitive Scalps can provide soothing relief.

Understanding Scalp Psoriasis

What is Scalp Psoriasis?

Scalp psoriasis is a common autoimmune disorder where the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, leading to an overproduction of skin cells on the scalp. This rapid cell turnover results in the formation of red, scaly patches that can be itchy and, at times, painful.

Symptoms of Scalp Psoriasis

  • Red Patches: Raised, inflamed patches on the scalp.
  • Silver-White Scales: Silvery scales on the affected areas.
  • Itching and Irritation: Persistent itching and discomfort.
  • Bleeding: Scratching can lead to bleeding and potential infection.

Management Strategies for Scalp Psoriasis

1. Gentle Cleansing with Mānuka Oil-Infused Shampoo

Our Mānuka oil-infused Shampoo for Sensitive Scalps is a game-changer for managing scalp psoriasis. Formulated with precision, it offers gentle cleansing without harsh chemicals. Mānuka oil's antibacterial and antifungal properties help reduce inflammation and soothe irritated scalp areas.

Usage Tip: Massage the shampoo into the scalp, allowing it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

2. Nourishing Care with Mānuka Oil-Infused Conditioner

Complement your cleansing routine with our Conditioner for Sensitive Scalps. This award-winning conditioner is designed to nourish and hydrate the hair and scalp. Mānuka and Kānuka oils work in harmony, providing a soothing touch to irritated scalp patches.

Usage Tip: Apply the conditioner after shampooing, focusing on the hair ends and areas affected by scalp psoriasis.

3. Avoiding Triggers

Identify and avoid triggers that worsen scalp psoriasis. Common triggers include stress, certain medications, and harsh hair care products. Opt for a gentle hair care routine with products specifically designed for sensitive scalps.

4. Balanced Diet and Hydration

Maintain a balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods and stay hydrated. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts may contribute to reducing inflammation associated with scalp psoriasis.

5. Consulting a Dermatologist

For personalised guidance, consult a dermatologist. They can provide insights into your specific condition and recommend tailored treatments or medications to manage scalp psoriasis effectively.
