Scalp Psoriasis And Haircuts

Scalp Psoriasis And Haircuts

Anybody else have a hard time going to their hair dresser or barber out of anxiety about what they’ll think or see? Went 2 years without a haircut and cried the first time I had to tell them about my scalp.
If anyone has any tips on their approach to getting haircuts more frequently, I’d like to hear them!

Tried to get my hairdresser to shave my head once out of frustration. She was a good friend who looked me in the eyes and told me I had the ugliest scalp she'd ever seen and to keep my hair. Still laugh about that and I definitely thanked her and increased her tip that time! Laughing or crying remains a choice daily for us.

I just explain to the stylist that I have psoriasis. No my hair/scalp isn’t dirty. I also explain the issues with certain ingredients in the shampoo’s that irritates it if they are going to wash it. It’s embarrassing but I would much rather inform them before they say something and everyone else hears it. Best of luck
