    Salt is safe and often used as a thickener, but it can certainly be drying, depending on the specific formulation.
    For my hair (which tends toward dryness), I have to be careful with salt, seawater and avoid all products with salt high up on the ingredients list.
    (Examples of products that, unfortunately, really dried out my hair badly and caused massive tangles: Lush Big Shampoo (coarse sea salt as first ingredient) and John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full (sodium chloride as fifth ingredient).)
    I think salt can be a good ingredient for providing relief for scalps that tend towards SD, fungal issues and excessive oiliness, it's mildly antimicrobial and antifungal.

    You can get a small chloride analyzer to check the exact levels in shampoo.

    The fact that most shampoos these days contain sodium chloride in varying amounts has been a source of annoyance to me for a while for my hair is so dry I feel I shouldn't be putting anything potentially drying on it but heyho, salt in shampoo seems to be very common.
