Woman who hasn't had a haircut in 28 years occasionally trips over her 6-foot-long tresses

A 33-year-old woman in Ukraine hasn't cut her hair in 28 years, and says she doesn't think she ever will.

Alena Kravchenko, from Ukraine, says her hair is part of her identity – which, at least in the looks department, she compares to Rapunzel – and she doesn't have any plans on cutting it.

But her long mane does have it drawbacks. Over 6 feet long, it's a chore to wash, which she does only once every three weeks. She also occasionally trips on it. And then there's her kids, who love to play in it, causing her to keep it up in a bun most of the time. According to Oddity Central:

By the time she had reached her teens, Alena Kravchenko’s hair had already reached halfway down her back, and by her early 20s, it reached her waist, then her knees, and in her early 30s, it started touching the floor. That’s when she began tripping on it, and as her two children got older, it became even more problematic as they loved to play with it, so Alena started tying it up in a bun, only letting it down on weekends and for special occasions.

Check out Kravchenko's Instagram photos. Pretty impressive hair indeed!

Если тебе скажут, что мечты не сбываются - не верь. Они сбываются, если за них бороться.❤ #instagram#длинныеволосы#longhair#rapunzel#длиннаякоса#красивыедевушки#topgirls#odessagram#одесса#длиннаякоса#рапунцель#аленакрасадлиннаякоса#длинныеволосыукраина#длинныеволосыодесса#волосыодесса#superlonghair#sexiesthair#hairdiva#reallylonghair#instahair#longhairdontcare#hairstyle#hairfashion#famouspeople#starlife#verylonghair#hairstyles#рапунцельукраина#rapunzelukraine#longhairbeauty#hairinspiration
