Nilanshi Patel- a girl from Gujarat has earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest hair on a teenager. Her hair is 5 feet and 7 inches long.
Ten years ago after a bad haircut, Patel decided to not cut her hair 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,” she explained to the folks at Guinness World Records.
Nilanshi says that the secret to her long locks is she washes her hair once in a week. “My mother helps me to braid and to comb my hair,” she said.
