With her six-foot-long hair Alena Kravchenko, from Odesa, Ukraine has been dubbed the real-life Rapunzel. The 34-year-old hair model has been growing her hair for almost 30 years, since she was 5-years-old, and, although, her hair has outgrown her height of 5′6’’ she doesn’t plan on cutting it.
“My love for my braid is so strong that for a second in my whole life I did not think about a haircut,” Kravchenko told Bored Panda. “I cannot see and cannot imagine myself with short hair or dyed in a different color!”
According to her, the secret to beautiful and healthy hair is to let it dry naturally and nourish it with various natural products.
“The main thing that I never do: I don’t dry my hair with a hairdryer, I don’t use curling irons, I don’t comb my wet hair (they dry naturally), it’s all taboo. I wash my hair once a week, use natural masks, various types of oils to nourish my hair; the main care is professional cosmetics. I definitely use dried fruits, nuts, and homemade cottage cheese,” she added.
