We’ve all thought about growing our hair really long at some point — but most of us probably don’t have the patience to grow it down below our KNEES.
That’s not the case for Russia’s Dashia Gubanova, though, whose locks are so long they reach down to her shins.
A real-life answer to fairy-tale character Rapunzel, Dashia hasn’t cut her hair for 13 years.
Incredibly, her hair still looks remarkably vibrant and healthy and she says the secret is not using any dyes or chemical-filled products.
She says she mostly uses old-wives’ concoctions to keep her hear looking good, wrapping her tressles in mixtures made out of sour cream or vegetable oil.
Dashia says she doesn’t plan to cut her hair until it at least reaches her TOES.
She has built up a huge fan following thanks to her hair, with more than 150,000 followers on her Instagram page where she regularly shows off pictures of it in various different styles.
Amazingly, Dashia’s hair isn’t anywhere near as long as the current Guinness World Record holder’s.
Xie Qiuping, from China, hasn’t cut her hair since she was 13 in 1973, and in December 2014 it measured an incredible 18ft 5.54ins (5.627 meters) long.
That’s more than three times the length of a 6ft man.
