I have talked about my psoriasis before, my story and how I treat it naturally. Honestly, I hope that no one reading this has psoriasis, because #psoriasissucks. But at the same time, and equally, I hope that people with psoriasis do find my blog and find hope in the disease and tips and tricks to take care of it.
This post relates specifically to scalp psoriasis. No one can really see it, but I feel it. My head is itchy and hurts. And if you itch, our scalp flakes, and it’s just no fun.
While I don’t “treat” it with anything, I love to do avocado hair treatments, at least once a week. This is literally avocado oil on my hair, under a plastic bag, and beneath a heated towel.
It helps the itch, it moisturizes and softens my hair, and it is super easy to do.
Here are two videos to show you what you need, the exact steps, and why and how long I do everything. If you have any questions, please ask in the comments. And see below for a quick (non-video) tutorial, too.
Avocado hair treatments are great for my scalp. I use avocado oil and I love it. But you could also use olive oil or coconut oil. You will also need two towels, a plastic store bag, some kind of butterfly clip, and about an hour.
- First, you slather your scalp in oil. Then you loosely secure your hair with a butterfly clip, add the plastic bag, and a warmed towel, and wait.
- You can switch out the warmed towel with another warmed towel for salon effect. (Sometimes I will switch two towels out for each other about 4-5 times throughout an hour.)
- Then you remove the towel, the bag, the clip, and get into the shower to rinse, shampoo, and condition.
PS you do NOT have to have psoriasis to do this treatment! It works for all hair and will not disappoint.
I hope that you love this as much as I do and would love to hear about your experience. Thanks for reading!
