Chinese woman lets down her hair - all 13.8 ft of it....
BBC
Dai Yueqin

A real-life Rapunzel has shown off her hair while visiting her native China - all 4.2m (13.8ft) of it.

Dai Yueqin, 40, who was visiting the country from the US, has not cut her hair since she was 14 years old.

She let it all down while visiting her home town of Tong Xiang, in Zhejiang province, eastern China.

Her feat has not won her a place in the Guinness World Records, though. Thai healer Hoo Sateow's locks were measured at 5.15m (16.9ft) in 1997.

1. A friend of mine had very long hair
She started getting migraine headaches. They stopped after she cut her hair. I wonder if the Chinese woman takes alot of aspirin. How in the world would you go about washing all that hair?

8. you dunk it in the sink - like washing panty hose
or, that's how the girls with very very long hair did it at summer camp. (They were Mennonite and didn't cut their hair; some had it down below their knees - and it looked exactly like my mom at the sink, washing her pantyhose.)

12. I wonder if
she does bad-ass martial arts with that thing. She has this intent focused look like she's ready to take down the photographer. Flick, thump.

5. You know, that's kind of neat
But it doesn't look good and it must be a pain in the ass to take care of. And it must weigh a ton - I have hair down to my butt and when it's wet, it's very heavy. Even dry and braided, it's like a lethal weapon.

9. Took the words out of my mouth
I too have hair I can sit on, and have considered putting spiky metal things at the end of my braid. I'd have to register it with the local cops :-) I think her hair looks pretty well-cared for, which must be a royal PITA....

11. She wouldn't need a pillow or possibly even a bed.
Just lie on the hair.

14. Several inches at the ends look split, but otherwise, WOW.
My hair peters out and starts breaking off before it hits my shoulders.

Makes me want to grow out my hair again, not that long though. hehe

Just to my mid back, or something. :)
