Her hair measures to 5 ft 7 inches to be exact, means 170.5 cm.
The girl didn’t take a haircut for the last 10 years. According to her she started growing her hair when she was six. When she was asked about ‘what motivated her to grow her hair so long?’, she revealed that she had a very terrible experience with her hairdresser which lead her to a decision to not cut her hair ever again.
“I got my hair cut, a really bad haircut. So, then I decided that I won’t cut my hair. I decided that when I was six and have not cut it since.”
Well! maintaining such long hair is not at all easy. It takes an hour to comb her hair, it is her mother who helps her to do so.
During her interviews, Nilianshi, the girl with the longest hair, was asked about the difficulties and challenges that she faces while maintaining her long hair. She then revealed that her hair is not a big challenge for her. “People think that I face so many problems with my hair, but I don’t face any problems, I do sports and all the things with my hair. It’s a lucky charm for me!” said our real life Rapunzel.
