I am currently beginning law school, and my whole life I have been very open about my psoriasis. In the past I had found that not telling people I suffer from this condition opened the door for ridicule; however, once people know that it is a condition, suddenly they didn't feel so cool making fun of me for it. Well, law school is a whole new game. I am finding myself even more self conscious than ever before! This is a huge problem for me as being in law school demands confidence...which I have in my abilities, but the constant itch distracts from that. I have long hair which I don't want to part with, I have just recently grown it back out. The problem is that if I were to pull it up into a professional up-do, by the end of a few hours in the library, the flakes take over the bottom half of my head. Does anyone have any advice how to maintain a professional long hair-ed style with psoriasis? Wearing my hear down (its not a stylish cut just long and straight) definitely appears more laid back than I care to look in this setting...my school's not exactly the jeans and a hoodie atmosphere I am used to.
Also, if anyone is in San Diego, can you recommend a hair stylist who understands psoriasis?
