A "real-life Rapunzel"

That is a truly impressive head of hair.
The Brazilian girl used to spend four hours a week washing her hair and an hour-and-a-half brushing it every day. But now she has had it cut into a simple bob, washing it only takes five minutes.
She sold it for enough to buy her family a home.

From the Daily Record, via Nothing to do with Arbroath.


  1. We used to have a photo sort of like that (of some stranger) with the comment of "Before the accident with the fan"


  2. 3000 pounds for the hair? Really? I'm missing my long hair of youth even more now...

  3. Wow! 3,000£. The line about the fan made me laugh.

  4. I live in Brazil and i saw it on television. The people buying hair for wigs wanted to give her something like a tenth of what she ultimately got. The television network covering the case paid more in order to give a happy ending to the story.
