Why You Should Start Using Salt in Your Shampoo

The world over, a mania for salt has taken hold.  We use it to gain traction on the icy roads and to season our food, but now we can also use it to treat our hair and scalp.

There has been a lot of buzz about these clever hacks, and I finally tried adding one to my shampoo, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.  From now on, I’ll make sure to include it.  About two weeks in, I began to see an improvement.  Because I found it so satisfying, I have begun including it in my bath gel.

When it comes to your hair and skin, why does salt work so well?

Adding salt to your product may feel strange at first, but the results will be worth it.  I swear!

You can keep your hair from becoming oily by using salt.

Do your hair and scalp tend to be oily?  What you really need is some salt.  As it does with grease stains, salt will soak up any excess oil.  You can see results in as little as a week by mixing 2–3 tablespoons into your regular shampoo.

Reduces flaking and itching of the scalp.

If you have dry hair, try massaging some salt into your scalp for 10 minutes.  The dandruff-causing fungi on your scalp are kept at bay by the salt.  To solve these problems, add a tablespoon to your shampoo.

Looking to get your hair longer?

It’s a universal desire that at least one person wants longer hair.  Everyone desires a full head of gorgeous hair, whether to experiment with new hairstyles or to donate to Locks of Love.

Even though adding salt to your shampoo won’t cause your hair to grow overnight, it will stop hair loss and promote new growth. If you add a little salt to your shampoo and massage it in, you’ll see results much more quickly.

What kind of salt should be used for these conjuring tricks?

There are many types of salt you can buy, but the best ones are probably already in your kitchen.

You can’t go wrong with any of these three varieties of salt.

First, Common Salt

You can promote hair growth with the iodized salt on your table.
