salicylic acid

Does anyone know anything about salicylic acid and curly hair? I have type 4, porous, fine hair, and seborrheic dermatitis. I want to try not using shampoo but I can only go 2 days before I have to wash because of the burning itch and crusty flakes. In the past the Tgel shampoo cleaned my scalp really well but I didn't know if it would remove silicone or dry out my already dry hair.

    have u ever tried the Selson Blue shampoo with scrubbing beads? Its a clear gel shampoo with blue beads and has 2% salicylic acid. Its great and its suprisingly gentle it just gives a great deep clean but is great with dandruff,itch and flakes.
