Just before her 18th birthday, her hair was measured for the last time in July 2020, and it reached an incredible length of 200 centimetres. She even secured the title of the longest hair ever on a teenager. Now, Nilanshi decided to cut off her locks. “My hair gave me a lot – because of my hair, I am known as the ‘real-life Rapunzel’… now it’s time to give it something back,” Nilanshi told Guinness World Records. Nilanshi had been growing her hair since she was six years old after having a bad experience at a salon. Her mother helped her dry and comb her hair after every week’s wash.
