Is it dangerous to color your hair if you have extremely dry scalp from scalp psoriasis?

In general, there is no contraindication to the use of hair dyes with scalp psoriasis. Certain hair dyes may further aggravate your scalp psoriasis. Consider patch testing a small area prior to dying your whole head. Do not leave the dye in place for extended periods. Other options include natural herbal dyes such as henna dyes.
