Psoriasis and Hair Loss

Psoriasis and Hair Loss

Psoriasis is a condition that impacts 2-3% of the population. In the United States alone, nearly 7.5 million people have been diagnosed with psoriasis. Of all people who have been diagnosed, half will experience scalp psoriasis. While it is possible for scalp psoriasis to cause temporary hair loss, it is almost never the sole cause of hair loss.

As many people with psoriasis understand, the condition can be quite painful at times. In addition to coping with physical discomfort, managing flare-ups can be both emotionally and financially exhausting. Identifying psoriasis can be tricky, meaning that many patients struggle with symptoms for a while before getting an accurate diagnosis. A common precursor diagnosis to psoriasis is dermatitis, a condition that tends to be easier to treat.

If you have scalp psoriasis, the following tips may help prevent hair loss:

  • Choose the Right Products – It is important to remember that if you have psoriasis, you should be extremely selective with the products that you use on your skin. Speak with your dermatologist about gentle options for your scalp.
  • Moisturize – Do not skip the conditioner. When you decide on a safe conditioner with your dermatologist, make sure that you use it. Using shampoo alone will only further dry out your scalp and exacerbate the problem.
  • Wash with Cold Water – If you have psoriasis, learning to love cold showers is an important skill to develop. Cold water is so useful for reducing inflammation. Though it may sound nice, a hot shower comes with a price.
  • Skip the Blow Dryer – For the same reason that you shouldn’t wash your hair with warm water, you should avoid using heated styling tools like blow dryers.
