All Voices Com * Brazilian 12-Year-Old, Is A Real-Life Rapunzel

Rio de Janeiro : Brazil                     | Mar 21, 2012 at  1:06 AM PDT               

A 12 years old girl, has the fairy-tale nicknamebecause her hair is 5 feet, 2 inches long. That’s less than two inches shorter than her body.

Natasha Moraes de Andrade, who lives in an impoverished shanty town in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, has never had a haircut.

The maintenance it requires sees her spend four hours per week washing it with a full bottle of shampoo and up to an hour-and-a-half brushing it each day. She has to carry it around when she walks, and fold it onto her lap when she sits down.

Despite Rio’s 40-degree heat Natasha’s family cannot switch on a fan in the house because her hair gets caught in it.

And children often stand outside her house and shout ‘Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.’

She said I love my hairs but its a pain looking after it.Despite living in a poor, the family’s shampoo bill alone reaches £400 a year.
“I can’t do a lot of things, like P.E. lessons at school.

“I hope to sell it for £3,500 and refurbish my bedroom. I hope it can give me a new life.”

Her mum Catarina, 42, said: “At the moment she is like a prisoner.”

The Guinness World Record for the world’s longest hair belongs to China’s Xie Qiuping whose hair measures 18ft 5in.
