Sea salt is a natural product from the sea. It does not change with any chemical processes, so it retains its basic properties. It is a more useful salt choice than ionized versions. You can definitely benefit from this type of salt.
Get rid of oily hair with sea salt
Oily hair is caused by excess oil production from the skin’s sebaceous glands. When you do not wash your hair properly or sufficiently, this oil can accumulate on the scalp and can be difficult to get rid of.
Sea salt is unlike ordinary salt from the evaporation of seawater, which leaves minerals behind. The ability of the sea salt to remove oil from the hair comes from the fact that the minerals actually strengthen the hair follicles and the scalp. As a result, the accumulation of oil is reduced and the hair looks much healthier.
The sea salt also improves circulation in areas of the skin where it is applied. This improves the supply of oxygen to the skin and scalp. Therefore, you will enjoy faster hair growth, higher volume, and a much healthier scalp. Now that you know how it works and are ready to try it at home, you need to learn how to treat your hair with sea salt.
How to treat your hair with sea salt
- 2 parts shampoo
- 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt
Preparation and application
First, pour two parts of your favorite shampoo into a small container that has been cleaned and dried properly.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt (depending on how fat your hair is) in the container with the shampoo and mix well until the salt is completely dissolved.
In the shower, apply some of the mixture to the hair by completely covering it.
Make sure to massage the scalp with the mixture for five minutes and let it work for another ten minutes.
Then rinse your hair with warm water.
It is usually a good idea to do one last cold rinse to close the hair follicles. Finally, apply a moisturizing conditioner to help your hair recover.
You can repeat the process 2-4 times per week. After a month you will start to see excellent results from this exfoliant. It is important that you use this technique now and then, as too much can dry your hair. Its use is especially recommended for people who have too much fat on the scalp. However, do not use it with every wash.
Sea salt has really been a miracle for people who did not get good results with products from makeup shops. Not only does it help eliminate excess oil, it also speeds up hair growth and even eliminates dandruff.
