How To Wash Your Hair In Space

space-hair-wash

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.

    Hardest shower scene to masturbate to ever.

    Even in space women use more resources and waste more time. I bet your shipmates just love all those long hairs floating around the cabin. A buzz cut and all you would need is a wet rag.

  • Neil IamStrong

    apparently NASA are not too concerned about water droplets finding there way into the electrics … why even have long hair ? ..its completely absurd and more proof to me that NASALIES and always will Lie

  • Shasi

    What happens to all those little droplets of water which we see float off in a lot of the astronauts videos which involve demonstrations using water?

  • nik

    How do you squirt in space?

  • clint eastwood

    another reason why women shouldn’t be in space. how many different aromas shampoo did she bring? shave your head instead of trying to look good at which you fail regardless

  • ravenstealsthelight

    why bother,after a while everyone smells the same. human body oils and dirt will make you vwaterproof. “iron cross”.

  • Bartolomeo Vanzetti

    Fake. Not even joking. Look up “ISS HOAX” on Youtube. A lot of this is shot in 0G Airplanes, with underwater composite shots. You can actually see air bubbles zig-zagging upward in some videos. It’s all movie magic people, ridiculous, yes I know – but you live in a ridiculous world. It’s just another piece of the matrix of lies.

      You are incredibly stupid.

      You are incredibly naive. Look at the video “Cupola First Light” released by NASA – from the two minute mark. Look at the air bubbles. Look at their trajectory is “weightless space”. They are filmed in a model of the ISS in an underwater pool, with composite green screen shots. You can look into it, or you can believe everything you are told like a sheep.

    She should shave her head – that would be safer and less resource wasting.

    • atwas911

      Agreed.

    • Leo

      The water is not wasted. It evaporates from her hair, the air conditioning system collects it, and the water processing system will turn that into drinking water….:))
