How long has it been since your last haircut? Sometimes people wait 6-8 weeks in between haircuts, or maybe a few times a year. A woman from China has not cut her hair for 18 years, which has grown about 11 feet and 9 inches since her last haircut. Yes, really!
Ni Linmei showed off her luscious locks in the northern Chinese city of Taiyuan, and it got quite the attention from people around the city. Take a look:
Having hair that long isn’t easy. According to online news source, The Daily Mail, one time, Linmei got her hair trapped in an elevator. She even spends two hours each day washing and drying her hair. Phew! That sounds like a lot of work!
She does not have the Guinness World Record for longest hair, although, she may soon! The current record holder for longest documented hair is Xie Qiuping, in China. In 2004, she set the record when Guinness staff measured her hair at 18 feet, 5.54 inches. It took her 31 years to grow her hair that long. Wow!
What world breaking record would you try to achieve in your life?
