No it doesn't cure scalp P and it ususally contains 14% alcohol so it is very drying but if you are ready to walk out the door and notice some flakes get a cotton ball and dab the flakes with the witch hazel. It contains salicylic acid. It is super cheap and can be found in the first aid section of the grocery or drug store. I actually put some (With a pointed tip applicator bottle) on my scalp after my shower. It soothes the p and dissolves the scales shaken up by hair washing.
I will add that I have guttate p and not plaque and my scalp is about 60-80% covered.
IT DOES CONTAIN ALCOHOL so use with caution. YOu may be able to find a concoction with a lower % of alcohol. good luck.
