Real-Life Rapunzel Has 90 Inch Long Hair And Is Proud Of It
Talk about serious commitment! Real-life Latvian Rapunzel Aliia Nasyrova has hair so long, her husband Ivan thinks of the locks as another member of the family. The 27-year -old took 20 years to grow out her 90 inch long, 4.5 pound heavy tresses. That thing is so long, it has it’s own space on the marital bed!
Aliia’s hair takes a whole day to air dry and an entire hour to comb through fully. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that her mane attracts the stares of everyone in public, but her husband Ivan says he loves it and is proud of his wife for never cutting her hair.
The Rapunzel from Samara, Russia uses about 22 pound of hair products to maintain the quality of her hair; this includes shampoos, conditioners and combs. The locks are so demanding, the couple even schedule their holidays around Aliia’s hair care regimen.
Aliia got inspired to grow her hair long but her favorite female characters in fairy tales. She says: “I started to grow my hair because since childhood I liked long hair very much. And I was always attracted by long hair heroines from fairy tales.”
The worst thing that has happened to the long-haired beauty was when she got chewing gum stuck in it and she had to cut off a chuck to get rid of it. Still, she dreams of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records. Best of luck, Aliia!
