Salt will help retain water, but only if you're actually drinking water, which in the context of the question is not the case.-If you're referring to a salt water solution, then I wouldn't recommend anyone drink it whether they were dehydrated or not. Drinking only salt water would result in death from dehydration.So, no in both cases.
