 You might want to be careful of the actual water from the ocean, though. I had some, and the next day it smelled like dead fish. There is stuff in tehre that's pretty gross. It's probably better to mix sea salt with spring water or something.

The ocean is dirty now with polution and a lot of feces.. i'd go with un-iodized sea salt and some water.. just taste it so it is close to the salinity of the ocean.. you don't want it to dry out your hair or skin.
Uniodized sea salt and seaweed extract would be at natural food stores/ natural health stores.

I make sea salt hair spray by mizing water 1 part water with 1/2 parts sea salt. Easy peasy & it makes my curly hair [gorgeous!!!] and my sister's straight hair as wavy as a day @ the beach would! probably better than using actual ocean water, ne?

I make a spray as follows:
1 cup water/rosewater (usually a comination of both)
1tsp bladderwrack extract (sea kelp - i get from Baldwins, but I am in the UK)
0.5 tsp epsom salts
0.5 tsp sea salt
1 Tbls natural conditioner ( i use 'Faith in Nature, hemp and meadowfoam, but anything not too heavy would do I think).
1 tsp jojoba oil
few drops essential oil (I normally use ylang ylang, patchouli)

I warm the water a wee bit till the salts dissolve, then put all in a spray bottle and shake well. I use this on damp hair and its fab. Enhances the curl but also makes it nice and soft.
Its great for sleeping in plaits or buns to create waves. Definitely works for me!

Seaweed extract can be obtained from some bath & body stores. I know in Canada I can get it at Voyageur -- http://www.voyageursoapandcandle.com/store/details.asp?prodid=62490&cat=34&path=3,34.

As a side note, you might want to find a substitute as sometimes the smell of fish can be really strong, although some people don't notice it much. I made a shampoo for my dog with d-Limonene -- a citrus based degreaser -- and seaweed and it smelled of orange fish! You can substitute it with a hydrolyzed protein (soy, wheat, oat, silk) or make it fragrance heavy. But then again, you might not notice the scent...
