An ordinary girl hailing from India made a firm decision never to cut her hair, eventually earning herself a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
However, this young woman, named Nilanshi Patel, recently opted for a drastic change in her hairstyle and bid farewell to her nearly two-meter-long luscious locks.
Residing in the Indian city of Modas, Nilanshi, now 18 years old, began growing her hair at the age of 6. Notably, by the time she turned 16, she had already secured the title of possessing the longest hair in the world.
What prompted this dark-haired Rapunzel to part ways with her remarkable tresses?
After maintaining her lengthy hair for 12 years and earning three Guinness World Records along the way, Nilanshi gradually grew weary of the extensive care required for her hair, which had reached a staggering length of 190 centimeters by 2020.
Understandably, Nilanshi felt quite anxious before her scheduled haircut, marking her first visit to a hair salon in over a decade.
Despite her apprehensions, the haircut proceeded smoothly, and following the transformation, Nilanshi made the decision to donate her hair.
During her childhood, Nilanshi had a distressing experience at a salon when a hairdresser made numerous mistakes, leaving her with a hairstyle that deeply upset her.
Consequently, she vowed never to trim her hair again. Keeping her promise for an extensive period, she refrained from visiting hairdressers and focused on growing her hair, ultimately earning global recognition and a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
