How to Wash Your Hair in Space. Seriously.
We’ve seen some pretty interesting beauty tutorials on YouTube before, but we don’t think we’ve been quite this amazed. Astronaut Karen Nyberg took some time off her duties as an Expedition 36 crew member to show the world how she washes her hair in the International Space Station (ISS) and it’s possibly one of the coolest things ever.
Low gravity and all, Nyberg squirts packets of water and space shampoo while we watch droplets of liquid float through the air. (Our favorite part: the space station is so high tech that all the water ends up going through a processing system to make it drinkable.) The whole time, her hair floats upward and resembles the classic Troll Doll toys in the best way.
Her hilarious fellow crew member Luca Parmitano made a video response of his own hair routine. He’s bald so you might think it wouldn’t be all that interesting, but it’s 15 seconds of pure magic.
Assuming that you’re not in space, take advantage of the earthly gravity with these 6 haircare tips.
