Unhappy Blurry ink

I have a problem with ink from a regular pen that I use in writing down notes in a pocket size note pad, After the notes are written down and i Have to use it in humid areas or just my sweat at times soaking into the page the ink runs.

Is there a non running ink pen i can buy or a different paper or maybe a way to seal the pages.

I Thought about spraying hair spray on the pages to seal it ,maybe that would work but does anyone have a better for sure idea?
thanks.

Hair spray will probably make the ink disappear, I think.
They sell a pen that writes upside down and under water. I think it's called a Space pen. You can probably find it wherever they sell stationary.

the space pens use a presurized gel ink cartridge, does gel ink not smear or something ?

I remember years ago in school using hair spray to protect art work, thought maybe it might work this way too.

I agree, the hairspray might make it worse due to the solvents and propellents.

How about a super fine point sharpie? You'd need a piece of mylar or cardboard between the pages though, to prevent bleed thru.
Or stop by a good stationary store for a few test drives of a pen.
