Salt Spray -- Does it Work?

I was just wondering if any of you have tried a home made salt spray on your hair, like this one: Salt Water: The Original and if it has really given you the same results that you get after going to the beach and swimming in the ocean. If you have, please let me know how it worked!

    Yes, homemade beach sprays do work. Be warned, it will dry your hair. I add a few things to combat the drying effect. Some good condish, some coconut oil, glycerin (though some have issues with glycerin and frizz unless used in optimal dews).
    ETA: I noticed they said "salt" and not sea salt. I am not entirely sure regular table salt would have the same effect as sea salt or epsom salts.

    I'm def gonna try this... I've heard of the product that you can buy, but didn't think of making it myself. :)

    swtndspcy, I think you're right. Making it with table salt seems to just weigh my hair down and make it look gunky. It feels nice and soft though.

    Epsom salt is really cheap and work very well for curl enhancement. Sea salt is a bit more expensive but works great for the beach spray. I actually don't have any regular table salt, I only use sea salt in cooking so I couldn't compare the two.
