Does Scalp Psoriasis Embarrass You? You’re Not Alone

The condition can make a trip to the hair salon a nerve-wracking experience.

I recently debated whether or not to get a haircut. I wanted to wait until my scalp psoriasis improved, but longer hair made it more difficult to treat my scalp. I eventually decided to go despite the scalp psoriasis flare, taking comfort in the fact that my regular hairdresser is familiar with psoriasis and eczema.

When I arrived at the salon, I didn’t see my usual stylist. The owner asked me to wait a few minutes, and I figured that he might be on his break. Ten minutes later, the owner said she would cut my hair because my hairdresser was out sick.

At first, I asked myself, “Should I get a haircut with someone I don’t know, or come back another time?” Since I’d already waited for a while, I decided to proceed. I explained my skin conditions to the owner, who took a quick peek at my scalp, shrugged, and asked how short I wanted my hair cut.

That day reminded me how stressful a simple haircut can be for someone with scalp psoriasis.
