Teenage Girl Just Set A Guinness World Record With 6 Foot-Long Hair
Sixteen-year-old Nilanshi Patel, however, hasn’t cut her hair in 10 years, and that decision has led her to a Guinness World Record: Longest Hair on a Teenager.
“I got a bad haircut, and it was really bad for me,” she says in a video by GWR. She recalls crying about it and deciding right then and there that she wouldn’t cut her hair again. Today, her dark, thick, wavy hair reaches her ankles, measuring 67 inches long when pulled straight.
Patel says she washes her hair once a week and amazingly, it takes only a half-hour to dry. However, it takes an hour just to comb it.
