Epsom salt is one of those miracle ingredients that can do more than merely soothe tired, achy feet.

Have fine, limp hair? Apply a 50:50 ratio of your fave conditioner and Epsom salt to create a volumizing hair mask. Apply the mixture to your hair and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and let your hair air dry for thicker-looking tresses.

Want Instant Beach Waves? Use some Epsom salt to make your own texturizing spray to add volume and beach-like waves to your hair. It robs less moisture from your hair than expensive sea salt sprays. Still too drying? Just add a little bit of your fave oil or conditioner to make it more moisturizing.

Have itchy or bug-bitten skin? Dissolve a tablespoon of Epsom salt  in a ½ cup of water. Lightly spritz your skin or apply a wet compress.

Have rough, patchy skin? Smooth skin is only a dash away! Add a smidgen of Epsom salt to your daily facial cleanser to create an instant skin exfoliator in a pinch!

  1. I would have instantly thought this would be drying to my 4c low porosity blend hair! I’ll have to do some research on my own to confirm. Very interesting!

    • Yes! You should ALWAYS do your own research to see what will work for your hair. No two heads of hair are alike (not even those with the same hair type). So, always test out hair products to see what your particular head of hair prefers.

      And, keep in mind, Epsom salt hair spritzes are a STYLING AID not a MOISTURIZER. Styling aids are not intended to moisturize the hair. Their primary purpose is to help transform or manipulate the hair in a certain way (e.g., gel to slick down your edges, mousse to define curls, styling cream to prevent frizz, etc).
