I think you'll find the chlorine levels are the same everywhere in Tenerife and Spain in general. It doesn't affect my skin but I have highlights and it certainly does make my hair a very brassy colour. I use to think it was the sun and used all sorts of products but now I realise it's the chlorine in the water.

Hi, I would have though that any chlorine would be added at source, and therefore the same within the area at least, if not the island. As far as I am aware there is only one water company in Tenerife.

I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

However you can buy 10L of water for 1.50€, so you can always wash your hair with that.

My wife says that hairdressers are cheaper than in the UK, as an alternative, but I suspect they will use tap water.
