Actually, I'm thinking your experiment with epsom salt could be quite easy. Take about 1/4 tsp. of the salt and add it to the equivalent of 1 cup of conditioner. Shake it or mix it up really well. Apply. It's OK to rinse it out or leave it in. See if your hair responds the way it does when you use the water from home.
