While topical steroids are often the main form of treatment for scalp psoriasis I have had a few patients respond to topical sulfur preparations. This is not something I can usually write a prescription for but can be found in compounding pharmacies. However, when used properly topical steroids (clobetasol as an example) can provide excellent results.

I'm not sure if there are any natural alternatives, however there are several nonprescription products.
Shampoos with salicylic acid, tar, zinc, selenium sulfide, and/or ketoconazole can help. Scalpicin, regular or maximum strength, can help also. The maximum strength contains 1% hydrocortisone, a steroid/cortisone much weaker than clobex lotion. P & s liquid can help remove thick scales.
