try a patch test on an area of your hair that there is some psoriasis. see if it irritates it. you might want to try the milder dyes that wash out until the lesions go away. but my lesions never seem to go away. tri the patch test.

One of my friend has psoriasis on her scalp and neck and she still dyes her hair. Always do patch test before applying. Just be careful when dying and don't rub it into your scalp.Just make sure by visiting the doctor.

Well it might differ from person to person. Hair dye might irritate even if you don't have psoriasis. so doing a patch test is helpful before applying it. There are some peoples who happen to clear up their psoriasis after using hair dye,could be co-incidence or a miracle and for someone it has worsen. So you can atlest try it and see what happens.

scalp where you have some patches of psoriasis. if you do it anywhere else you won't know if it will sting, or burn you.

I have psoriasis in my hair and I have died my hair no end of times... try a little test patch behind the ear... if you are ok after 24 hours I think they recommend... then go for it

Also do NOT forget to use protective cream around your hair line and all over scalp!!
