Hair gel

I reckon the manufacturers of hair gels have a bright future in space. Hair must take some managing in zero-g. Hair spray, on the other hand, would be hazardous, no?

Re: Hair gel

Hair spray in space sounds hideous! :mrgreen:

I suppose having a really short haircut (no.4 or less with the electric trimmers) means you don't have to bother about hair gel either. Still, having a crewcut/skinhead cut isn't going to appeal to everyone.

What about female astronauts with long hair? Do they have to use hair nets?

Re: Hair gel

Hi Bora

Remarkably, I've just stumbled across a video on YouTube showing an astronaut washing her hair aboard the International Space Station! Doesn't look too complicated, to my surprise.

There seem to be a remarkable number of videos on YouTube showing everyday life about the ISS, including crew members drinking water, eating oranges etc. It's quite a resource for life in space, to my surprise. Anyway, the hair-washing one is my first attempt on this forum at posting a link to a video. Here goes:

Nope, they just let it float about if they want. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diYGgheLBxI
