i only detangle about 1-4x every couple of months due to me being in protective styles.
brit brat you're gonna have to find a way to grind it. It needs to dissolve when you add to the condish and I'm not sure if it's as coarse as you say, if it will dissolve. If you don't have a salt grinder, put a tsp in a ziploc bag and WHACK IT! LOL

lmaooo
do you knwo how crazy my family will look at me..its not that cause..the salt are little balls the size of umm..lemme get a visual.the size of my salts are just a  bit biggerConfused

When my hair used to easily be tangled, this idea would have been handy.
I have read recipes calling to add milk, honey or sugar, but salt... only on BHMLOL
I will try it but I will add just a pinch of salt in enough for one wash, just in case I don't like the result.

Salt is VERY DRYING to the hair. Please do not do this! Just because someone tried it on their hair and said it felt fluffy that does not mean it helped their hair. Just for your information.... SALT IS USED TO MAKE THE HAIR KNOT UP TO DREAD LOCKS. So I don't know if dred locked matted effect is what you're going for, but it is NOT what I ever go for. I think the original poster was just imagining it felt nice and we surely have no long term reports on how their hair started dissolving after months of salt  but it's your hair. 

Why do you think people try to correct the damage from sea salt from Summer swims?  Because the salt in the ocean damaged their hair!! HELLO! People try to AVOID too much salt damaging their hair when they go to the beach by putting coconut oil on the hair first to block it out. Yes your hair usually IS fluffy when you come back from the beach, it is also usually DRY AND DAMAGED for a while too. Is that what you're also going for? LOL

More information on what salt does to the hair:
"Salt is a natural abrasive. If salt is left in the hair for too long then it can rub away at the cuticles and also the scalp causing damage and hair loss. Salt also draws out water. It is dehydrating when used excessively. So again salt in the hair can cause dryness. It also strips hair of oil and can take off the outer keratin coating of the hair, as it can break down protein bonds, leading to excessive dryness. That is why it is recommended to wash your hair often when exercising. All the salt in sweat can have these negative effects and build up in your hair if you exercise regularly (everyday or every other day) and lead to breakage."

But hey! if you want hair loss, excessive damage, dryness, loss of outer keratin layer, break down of protein bonds, baldness CryCry hey Go for it!!! LOL

I am sorry I am being biased here. People use a lot of natural products from around the house to produce different desired effects on their hair.   Hey, after the Civil War, people discovered that washing their hair with pot ash, water and lard  OR with lye soaps straightened it. YES it damages but it also produced a desired effect.

SO,  those who have limp, naturally straight, thin hair and find that salt tightens the curls and tightens the kinks. Yes that is a fact, although it damages the hair. So who am I to say that those who want tighter curls should not use salt even though it also damages like lye damages to straighten. It is YOUR hair so YOU decide whether you want it tighter or looser. So there are many food stuffs and other products which DO produce many desired effects on the hair. Salt is one of them. SALT DOES NOT DETANGLE THE HAIR. But it does make your curls shrink tighter and it does TANGLE the hair, and it also dries it out and fuzzes it up. A lot of white sisters DO want fuzzier, tighter curls that is a little drier and fluffier. So yeah, if you want fuzzier, drier, tighter shrunken curls, then salt is for you. Do not use salt thinking it will detangle because IT WILL NOT. In fact it does tangle more.   

Lye damages and straightens. Salt damages and  draws up the hair making it more wiry. So both options are available with risk. I would say pick your poison. For those relaxed sisters who want more texture, please do not pick TWO poisons. I would recommend just relaxing less... texlaxing instead.
