morgan says our salt sprays for hair safe to use what makes them work the way they do. And is there any similar alternative? I was saying like a salt spray isn't that like going into the ocean and swimming, It's gotta be the same same effect. Yeah. Salt sprays are those sprays that people use to create that beachy textured look within their hair. So something that just says, oh I just spent the day at the beach, but I'm still really put together looking. But that's what salt sprays do for hair. But it's not the salt that is doing that right. It's the other ingredients that are in there. No, I think it's the salt. First of all these products have a lot of water, so they're really efficient at wedding the hair and when the salt when the water goes away and the hair drives the salt re crystallizes and I think it helps keep a little bit of a wavy pattern because the way the salt crystallized when you rinse your hair again and the salt goes away, your hair goes back to being normal. The salt salted crystallized and they'll essentially will separate fibers from each other. Is essentially essentially there's Granules between your fibers. Right? And so that's good. Exactly. That's going to give you space and it's going to give you volume. And that's essentially how these things work. And this is actually the record for the number of times that I've said essentially on a single show of the beauty brains. So there we go, someone will have to fact check that King king. So are these things safe? I mean, Yeah. I mean as far as safe goes, of course they're safe. Right? Yeah. I mean we eat salt. Right? Right. Well, and people go swimming in the ocean all the time. There's a lot of salt in there. Although what the constitution is, salt in the ocean is maybe 1% Well you well you talk I'm gonna look that up. Yeah. So I think the thing that people think about salt sprays is that, well, I know my hair feels super rough for, you know, dry after the ocean. Uh is a salt spray. Going to do the same thing? Is it damaging for hair? People who get keratin treatments try to avoid salt and shampoos? And I think it's not really the salt, that's the issue. I think it's the water water is one of the most damaging things for hair. And you know, when you're in the ocean in your shower, putting these high water concentrated salt sprays on your hair. I think out of anything, it's the water that's doing anything. I don't think salt is the issue. What do you think? Perry? Yes. No, I I agree. I don't assault is not going to penetrate into your hair fibers. I mean there's there's space in there anyway. I don't think it's going to swell up that the water could swell up your hair and that could become a problem. But the salt well, especially with oceans because it doesn't ocean water have a higher ph than like your texture spray ph which is probably like around five or six. Our oceans like 78 Yeah. Well now we've got to look up the ph of the ocean While I was looking up the the salt concentration of the ocean which is 35 parts per 1000, Wow. Which was at 3.5 salt, yep. Yeah. I mean a texture spray would probably have a little bit more, but again, it's at a lower ph. I'm confident the ph of the ocean is between seven and eight. You are confident of that, huh? I'm like uh we're just gonna go to google right now. What is the P. H. Of the ocean 2020? and Google says it's around 8.1. You are a winner that you had to put the year in, wow, you are a winner. Yeah. So I would say, you know, the ocean could be damaging one of ph causing hair to swell tons of water flooding into the hair. That's going to cause more damage than the salt. I would think. Bottom line, I think salt sprays are safe to use for sure. For sure. And they're better than the ocean because they're ph is lower. Yeah. And typically the salts that you find in the salt sprays as a formulate, er I don't typically use sodium chloride, although I suppose you could, most of the salt sprays that I see utilized magnesium sulfate, like Epsom salts. Are you saying are you like a sodium chloride snob or something you don't like? Oh my God, sodium chloride. Well, I I don't know just the ones on the market I see used magnesium sulfate.
