And that is how I wash hair in space on International Space Station.
Hi there, I had a lot of people asked me
how I wash my hair in space.
And I thought, I’d show you how I do it.
Let’s see, to get started,
these are the things I need.
A bag of warm water, a little no-rinse shampoo,
towel, and my comb.
What I like to do is to start by this,
putting some hot water,
squirting in onto my scalp.
And I have a mirror here,
so I can kind of watch what I’m doing.
Sometimes the water gets away from you.
And you try to catch as much as you can.
And I just work the water,
up through to the ends of my hair.
And I take my no-rinse shampoo,
and squirt it also on the scalp, for a little bit.
And rub it in, again kind of working it out to the ends.
And sometimes I’ll actually take my comb,
to help work it all the way to the ends.
And I’d like to my towel while I have the shampoo
in there and just kind of work it.
Because without standing under running water,
you kind of need to use the towel a little bit
to help get some of the dirt out.
I’d like to follow that by a little more water.
It’s called no-rinse shampoo but I think it’s best if you use a little water with it.
Actually feels kind of squeaky clean right now.
Now I’ll take the dry part of my towel.
We use towels for quite a while here.
Since we have limited supplies.
We use them wisely.
I think that’s pretty good and now as my hair dries,
as the water evaporates from my hair.
It will become humidity in the air
and then our air conditioning system will collect
that into condensate and it won’t be long.
And our water processing system will turn that into drinking water.
At the end, I just do one final comb through
to make sure there are no snarls and snags.

And while it dries I like to, like to, eh
let it stay, stay free.
I don’t put it back to the ponytail while it’s drying.
And that is how I wash my hair in space on International Space Station.
