No! I love that stuff too-it's the only thing that keeps my hair from being a complete pom pom looking thing in the summer. I've googled all over and asked different yahoo bath and beauty groups I belong to. No one seems to know...or they're keeping the secret to themselves! I hope someone wants to share!

This is probably a really lame suggestion, but I remember reading in a magazine a long time ago that Jennifer Aniston's hairstylist uses regular water out of the ocean - just puts it in a spray bottle and styles away.

I don't know if this is all that similar to the commercial products, but you can make your own salt water by dissolving salt in water. 
according to this , seawater is about 3.5% salt by weight.  So, to get approximately the same salinity as seawater, dissolve 35 grams of salt into 1 liter of water.
Or about a tablespoon of salt ( a little more, actually) into 16 oz (US pint) of water
Or between 1 3/4 and 2 tsp of salt into 1 cup of water.

It's easier to dissolve if the water is hot (and if you boil the water you'll be less likely to get stuff growing in it, anyway).

If you want to be really rigorous, use sea salt instead of table salt (so you get more trace minerals) and distilled water (or at least filtered).

Good luck

I am going to try this recipe and I am going to add a small amount of cyclomethicone...basically a hairgloss or silicone......same kind of stuff in the ones you buy in the store.  I will let ya'll know how it turns out!  Just ordered the cyclomethicone so I have to wait to make it.

What exactly does sea salt spray do?
When I go to Fiji and swin like 15 times a day in the sea, my hair goes wavy and hard to comb. Is that what the spray does? Or maybe it's just the fact that I swin so frequently...

I have thick wavy/frizzy hair.  The sea spray helps give it some texture and weight to keept o frizz down.

I got a recipe for salt spray online that suggests 5 teaspoons of salt and 1 cup of water.
Also, How does it work on short, fine, thin hair?
