Meet The Girl With The Longest Hair at 12
So Watch Out Naija ladies all of you CRAVING for Brazilian Hair might has well be getting a piece of this girl's hair
Natasha Moraes de Andrade, who lives in an impoverished shanty town in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, has never had a haircut. At 5ft 3in, she is just one inch taller than the length of her wavy chestnut hair - and the maintenance it requires sees her use a full bottle of shampoo every week.
Her mother Catarina Moraes de Andrade, 42, said admirers told her never to cut her daughter's beautiful hair as it was so thick and long.
Children in her local neighbourhood chant 'Rapunzel, let down your hair' at her window, and passersby frequently take photographs
Natasha's mother Catarina Moraes de Andrade implored her daughter to cut her hair so that she could join in with the other children
'At the moment she is like a prisoner. She just goes from school to home again,' Mrs Moraes de Andrade said
But now she's urging her girl to chop it off because it's interfering with her life.
