Video: Washing your hair in space

Astronaut Karen Nyberg – currently aboard the International Space Station – demonstrates how one washes long hair in space.

According to Wikibedia, Karen Nyberg is the 50th woman in space. She’s currently serving as part of Expedition 36 aboard the International Space Station (ISS). In keeping with what we hope is a growing tradition of ISS astronauts showing us what it’s really like to be in space, Nyberg gives a demonstration on how she keeps her hair clean in a weightless environment.

We really enjoy watching the latest videos that ISS astronauts are creating for us in space. Thank you to all.
