How do astronauts wash their hair while aboard ISS? Viral video shows

Megan McArthur, a Nasa astronaut staying aboard the International Space Station, recently shared an exciting video. The clip captures her explaining how astronauts keep their hair clean while in space. Chances are, the video will leave you intrigued.

“Shower Hour! Astronauts can’t take showers in space, or the water would go everywhere, so I thought I would demonstrate how we keep hair clean on the @Space_Station. The simple things we take for granted on Earth are not so simple in micro-gravity!” she wrote.

She introduces herself and says she is often asked how the astronauts accomplish daily tasks while staying at the ISS. She then goes on to say, “I thought today I would show you how I wash my hair in space.”
