This makes perfect sense to me. Glad to hear it. :)

I know! I was so relieved first time my hairdresser ranted about the evils of salt spray. I couldn't figure out why people were paying money for it and happened to ask him. That's what got him started...

I admit - I have used salt spray now and then. (But please don't tell my hairdresser - she'll disown me.)

Teehee--- Ok Gitte. I PROMISE not to tell :)

Eeeeeeeevery now and then, when my hair just WON'T curl and I need it to curl for an event or something, I'll mix some epsom salts in warm water (and some pretty-smelling essential oils) and spritz it on. My hair will curl like crazy and look like a zillion bucks!
I find it really drying, though, so I never ever ever go to bed with that stuff in! I rinse, pack on the coconut oil, and sleep. Then, rinse in the morning! Happy curls :)

OOh K, that's another great tip you have there. It sounds like you have the best of 2 worlds in that you only use it once in a while - get great results, and know exactly how to counteract any drying. It sounds like you have achieved.. dare I say it.. total control! Thanks for sharing!

Sorry but.......what do people use salt spray for? I have never heard of this. I just know that it wouldn't make any sense to me to spray salt on my hair.

This is exactly what I asked my hairdresser after seeing salt spray advertised. I couldn't see what the purpose was. Read K's comment - salt spray does seem to have some hair styling function... :)

Do you think using a salt rinse would damage hair in the same way as a salt spray? Salt rinses were used by some Victorians to wash their hair. I tried it and thought it worked quite well and it helped my rather irritated scalp. I just don't want to damage my hair... (of which I have a lot!)

Hi Kate. I asked my hairdresser about this one. He said: 'although many will find an immediate relief from using a salt rinse, it is doing damage to the scalp in the long run.' He recommends using oil treatment for itchy scalp instead. Hope this helps :)
