Sea Salt Rinse for Oily Hair

This sea salt rinse will give body to flat, lifeless hair. Salt is great for stripping away excess oils on the hair and product build-up. You can also use my sea salt spray to add body to hair on a regular basis. See the recipe here: How to Make Salt Spray for Hair.

This recipe should be used no more than a couple times a month. It could irritate scalp and dry out hair if overused.


  • 4 tablespoons sea salt
  • 2 cups of hot water
  • Spray bottle


Dissolve the sea salt in the hot water.

Separate dry hair into 4 sections: 2 sections on top and 2 on bottom.

Starting with the bottom sections of hair, completely spritz with the sea salt spray.

When all sections are completely soaked in sea salt solution, leave on for 5 minutes.

Rinse and shampoo as you normally would.
