Dos and don'ts for spending the day at the Blue Lagoon outside Reykjavik, Iceland. Iceland's most popular (and awesome) geothermal spa is the country's top tourist spot and for good reason--just make sure you know what to expect (and how to treat your hair)!
For travelers visiting Iceland, the Blue Lagoon is high on almost everyone’s bucket list. It’s warm, milky blue water and otherworldly appearance is like something out of a dream. On my last trip to Iceland, I took the day to relax and play around in the lagoon, and it was magical! While the silica and sulphur in the water of the Blue Lagoon are amazing for your skin, beware. The geothermal water can have negative effects on hair, especially for women!
