Salicylic acid shampoos help break down dead skin cells on the scalp. This reduces scales and improves the symptoms associated with dandruff. Salicylic acid is one of the most common ingredients in over-the-counter shampoos designed to treat dandruff. Some patients use it for seasonal dandruff. It is also appropriate for regular use. Salicylic acid reduces skin flaking and provides moisture for a dry scalp. When used regularly, it can maintain healthy moisture levels in this area. 

This type of shampoo is most effective when used once or twice a week. Patients may need to continue using this product weekly after their dandruff resolves. After wetting the hair and lathering the shampoo, the product should be allowed to remain on the scalp for five minutes before being rinsed off. Salicylic acid shampoos should not be rubbed through the ends of the hair. Patients will need to monitor their scalp for any increases in dry skin. They should check for skin peeling too. This product may cause a burning sensation for some users.
