Psoriasis, characterised by scaly, flaky and inflamed skin, especially around and on the scalp, can be a really tricky condition to manage. There good news is that there are things you can do to help get it under control!
If you have a mild but persistent case of psoriasis around your hairline, try these three steps:
1. Shampoo: wash your hair with a natural, unscented, SLS-free shampoo, rather than a standard one, which can irritate the skin
2. Balm: apply Balmonds hemp-rich Skin Salvation balm to the area every night to soften scales and flakes, and lock in that vital vital moisture
3. Oil: once a week, give your scalp a deep conditioning treatment with our nourishing, antimicrobial Scalp Oil. It will feed the skin with essential fatty acids and other nutrients, and support the rebalancing of skin cell production.
