Indian teenager breaks record with 6ft 2in long hair after setting the mark herself some time ago.
The lady , Gujarat-based Nilanshi Patel, 18, first achieved the record for longest hair on a teenager on Nov. 21, 2018, and has since broken her own record twice, the most recent time also achieving the record for the longest hair ever on a teenager.
Her hair now measuring 6 feet and 2.8 inches, a 7.8-inch growth from her previous record.
“I got my hair cut, a horrible 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 said.
Nilanshi is a student of class 12 and wants to become a software engineer. She is currently preparing for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) mains and said that her hair care regime is not a distraction from studying. She further dreams of setting many more world records, including the one for longest hair on an adult, in the future.
When asked about the secret behind her long hair, she said applying a homemade hair oil that her mother prepares with some secret ingredients.
“I love my hair, I never want to get my hair chopped. It was my mom’s dream to get my name in Guinness book of the world record,” she added.
