Hair Loss From Scalp Psoriasis

I was wondering what I can do for the hair loss caused by scalp psoriasis.  I have never experienced this before. It started out as what I thought was dandruff 3 months ago.  I went to the dermatologist two weeks ago and he gave me Derma-Smoothe which I put on every night when I went to bed with a shower cap.  I have used it every night for 8 days and it appears the psoriasis is cleared.  The upsetting part is the very thin hair now on top of my head.  Will it grow back?  Is there something I can use to help it along the way?  My hair is shoulder length and I am a 44 year old female.  My hair has also been highlighted (gold blonde) which I don't plan on doing again until the hair hopefully grows back.  I have highlighted my hair for years and I have never had a problem with it.  I think the psoriasis was brought on by stress.  I worried that if it comes back I will lose more hair.

Thank you for any help you can give me.  I am very upset about this.

Men who keep masturbating excessively will eventually reach an exhausted state in which their bodies produce more inflammatory hormones and proteins, including prostaglandin E2 and DHT. These in turn might be the cause of pain and hair loss.

Hair Loss Cure for Men - Any recent advances?

The magic fix-all for hair loss is still far out of reach.  However advances in research can help us understand key contributing factors such as DHT.
Dihydrotestosterone, also known as DHT, is a concentrated form of testosterone that plays a determining role in the biological function of men. Despite the positive note that DHT is essential in the development of males, it seems ironic that the search for dihydrotestosterone blockers have been neglected.
