The Water will Affect your Hair
One of the unique features of the geothermal water at Blue Lagoon is the high levels of silica. Silica is not harmful to hair. However, if you get your hair wet from the geothermal seawater, it can become stiff and difficult to manage.
To avoid this, either:
- Keep your hair out of the water or use a swim cap (these are available to buy at reception)
- Apply the complimentary conditioner provided in the shower area to your hair, and leave it in while you bathe
Once you have finished bathing, wash your hair thoroughly with the complimentary Blue Lagoon shower gel and conditioner found in the shower area (you are welcome to use your own products if you prefer). Use a lot of conditioner. You will probably need to repeat this process a few times to get all the silica out.
