Brrrr!! There’s a Crazy Hair-Freezing Contest at a Canadian Hot Springs!!

/ by

At Takhini Hot Pools in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory (Northwest Canada), they host a COOL hair-freezing contest! Brave contestants soak in a hot pool of water (roughly 40° Celsius/104° Fahrenheit) and then dunk their heads under water. When they emerge, the air is so cold (-30° Celsius/-22° Fahrenheit) that they can start “styling” their icy hair!

    No thanks. For the money – no. For the sake of laughter – perhaps. This is a natural barbershop, where every hairstyle – natural masterpiece. So cute. Only my hair in a normal state is not very different from the effects of these experiments. So that…
    However, thanks, Pee-wee!

  • This calls for the creative use of
    Bio-Freeze.. or an extensive, excessive use of Aqua Net Hair spray along with pomade extreme hold gel then just put your head in the freezer until you are frozen.. anyhow Paul love this blog, and on the subject of discussion of all things frozen, here’s to a frozen yogurt kind of day.. ??
