My tool is a comb that washes hair while detangling it. I was inspired to design this item when I watched a video of Karen Nyberg washing her hair in space. She used a water pouch and slowly squeezed drops onto her scalp. It looked frustrating and the lack of gravity made it difficult. The comb attaches to the nozzle of the water pouch that she used. The user can control the amount of water the same way they would before, by squeezing the container. The user combs through their hair while dispensing the water. This design makes what was a tedious task into an easier one for women on the International Space Station.
