Here’s How NASA Astronauts Wash Their Hair In Zero Gravity

Floating in air like a superhero may sound like a lot of fun, but there are many challenges associated with living on the International Space Station where the lack of gravity can make things that are easy to do on Earth harder. Astronauts have been living for more than a decade aboard the space station and have developed a few tricks that make these everyday tasks easier.

In a recent video, Expedition 36 astronaut Karen Nyberg of NASA demonstrated how she washes her long blonde hair aboard the space station.
