Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that results in the overproduction of skin cells. The dead cells build up into silvery-white scales. It can occur anywhere on the body, often the scalp, and the skin becomes inflamed and red, causing serious itching and discomfort.
Typically, dermatologists prescribe topical corticosteroid creams or light therapy.
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, occurs because of a hypersensitivity reaction. This causes the skin to overreact to certain triggers, such as dyes, fabrics, soaps, animals, and other irritants. The dryness associated with eczema can cause red painful cracked skin.
Eczema is treated with emollients or topical corticosteroid creams. Other cases of eczema may require antibiotic creams or prescription oral medications. Barrier creams are useful to protect skin from irritants and infections, allowing it to heal.
Both of these conditions can be mild or severe, depending on the individual.

Both carrier and essential oils are critical to successfully dealing with a head lice infestation. Carrier oils are typically cold-pressed oils that are produced from the fatty portions of a specific plant and are used to suffocate and immobilise the lice. Contained within the carrier oils are the essential oils known to possess ovicidal, repellent and insecticidal activities and used safely are a natural alternative in helping to eradicate lice and eggs. Holistic Hair use lavender, tea tree, citronella and pink grapefruit as our chosen essential oils.
