    I'm new to naturally curly hair.
    --What benefit to curly hair does sea salt have? (It's just that would have never thought of putting salt on my hair.)
    --What do you mean when you say the salt will give your curls that "beachy look"?

    Again, I'm new to all of this, so I still learning what's what with curly haircare. Thanks!

    Sea Salt or Epsom Salts (or any kind of salt) has a positive and a negative effect on hair: on one hand, it makes it a lot curlier. The curls just POP when you spray your hair with water + salt.
    On the other hand, it dries your hair pretty badly. It has a terribly drying effect on hair. That's why you have to use a very moisturizing conditioner before you spray you hair with this.
    When we say "beach hair", we mean the look that your hair has after you've been swimming in the sea.
