Salt Spray Help?

In the summer, I really like my hair after swimming in the ocean, and I want to make a salt spray so I can have hair like that always. However, will just adding a few tablespoons of salt to water dry my hair out immensly? Would adding salt to conditioner work just as well? If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please tell me!!!

    There are several old threads about this. Search "salt spray" (quotes included).Here's one with a recipe:

    That one recipe is an awful lot of epsom salt to add to your hair. I think for a lot of us it would roughen up the cuticle too much and cause frizz.

    If you already have some natural wave/curl I would start out with a cup of water plus 1/4tsp to gently enhance the curl. I add 1/4 tsp salt to my FSG when cooking and that more than takes care of springing up the curl in my hair.
