April 16 A teenage girl in Gujarat, India, has not had her hair cut for 12 years and has twice been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, becoming the world’s longest-haired teenager and being praised as a “long-haired princess”. More recently, she cut her hair, which was 2 meters long, into crisp short hair, and sent it to the Guinness Book of World Records for display.
Nilanshi Patel, 18, began to have long hair at the age of six because of an unpleasant experience, the Indian Express reported.
In 2018, she broke the world record with 170.5cm of hair length, making her the world’s longest-haired teenager. 7, 2020, she set a new record with 190cm hair.
Patel says that while she loves long hair, she thinks it’s time to change. She had intended to give her 266g hair to charity and fake it for children with cancer who had lost their hair after chemotherapy, but her mother wanted her to show it to inspire more people, so she decided to send her head to the Guinness Book of World Records collection and exhibition.
