This Canadian Hot Spring Has a Hair Freezing Contest Every Winter
Let’s take one last dunk into winter before that blessed sunshine takes over. It is on it’s way, isn’t it?
Every February the Takhini Hot Pools in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada host a Hair Freezing Contest, because when it’s that cold you may as well find a way to make it fun.
Contestants dunk their hair in the hot water (usually 40° Celsius/104° Fahrenheit) and then let it freeze in the chilly air above (temperatures in Feb. can easily dip below -30° Celsius/-22° Fahrenheit). Contestants are permitted to mold and style their hair as it freezes.
You can see all of the entries on the Takhini Hot Pools Facebook page.
It does look a little like their hair could snap at any point…
Here’s the three winners.
And here’s the best of the rest..
