If your scalp has psoriasis, preceding your hair wash with scalp exfoliators like coconut or olive oil or salicylic acid products is a great idea. The exfoliators should rest on the plaques for a couple of minutes before you put shampoo. Psoriasis-friendly medicated shampoos and conditioners with ketoconazole, coal tar, salicylic acid etc. should be your picks. Next, take care to always comb your head with a gentle hand to soften the scales and remove them before you apply shampoo. A hair wash will rinse off the remaining flakes so that you lather your medications on a clean scalp.
