Beyonce speaks for the first time about the disease from which she has been

Beyonce has spoken for the first time about her battle with psoriasis.

"I have many beautiful memories associated with my hair. The relationship we have with our hair is such a deeply personal journey. "From spending my childhood in my mother's salon to my father applying oil to my scalp to treat psoriasis - these moments have been sacred to me," said Beyonce, revealing for the first time that she struggles with the disease.

The autoimmune condition causes the body to overproduce new skin cells, resulting in scaly, itchy patches on the scalp, elbows, knees and body.

Beyoncé's interview with Essence comes weeks after the singer confirmed she is launching a hair care line called Cécred.

“I took the end of my name, Cé, and made it the beginning of the word sacred to create Cécred,” she said. "From my mother's salon, daily rituals with my father and years of experience developing a hair care line, the journey has been just that: Cécred."
