Nilanshi Patel, Gujarat, India, has a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the teenager with longest hair. Her hair is now 170 cm long!

The girl explains that at the base of this record there is actually a bad experience with a hairdresser when she was 6 years old; when she went to cut her hair and was given a bad haircut. It was then when she decided not to cut her hair anymore. 

Patel, whom friends nicknamed Rapunzel, said her parents support her choice. “People think I have so many problems with my hair, but I have no problems, I play sports and everything else , my hair is a lucky charm for me!” has explained.

“I treat them like a long braid or a doughnut on my head,” added the girl, who seems to have no intention to shorten the hair in the near future.
