How To Wash Your Hair In Space



Just in case you haven’t thought about it, astronauts on the International Space Station also wash their hair. But the task is not at all convenient, as you will see in the video below which shows Expedition 36 crew member Karen Nyberg washing her hair with a small bag of warm water and no-rinse shampoo.

She squirts some water and shampoo on to the scalp. Her hair is standing on end due to zero gravity, so she has to use her hands and a comb to work the water and shampoo up through to the ends. The water is seen flying away in between, which might seem to be fun only from down here.

Check out the video and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
