The owner of two-meter long hair hasn’t washed it for 20 years

British¬†artist¬†Francesca¬†Cluney,¬†32,¬†stopped¬†cutting¬†her¬†hair¬†at¬†18¬†and¬†washed¬†it¬†nearly¬†20¬†years¬†ago.¬†It’s¬†hard¬†to¬†believe¬†but¬†she¬†says¬†it’s¬†true. The¬†little¬†Brit¬†had¬†long¬†thick¬†hair¬†and¬†at¬†the¬†age¬†of¬†13.

Francesca’s¬†braid¬†came¬†below¬†her¬†waist.¬†Washing¬†and¬†brushing¬†it¬†became¬†more¬†and¬†more¬†difficult,¬†and¬†at¬†some¬†point,¬†she¬†decided¬†to¬†stop¬†doing¬†it.¬†¬ĽI¬†just¬†hated¬†washing¬†my¬†hair.¬†The¬†longer¬†it¬†took,¬†the¬†harder¬†it¬†was¬†–¬†the¬†longer¬†it¬†took¬†to¬†rinse,¬†rinse,¬†then¬†dry¬†that¬†much¬†hair.¬†¬Ľ

According to the girl, after not washing her hair, her head soon became oily and itchy. Francesca suffered for a few months, then suddenly it stopped.¬†¬ĽI don’t really use hair products.

I¬†just¬†brush.¬†It¬†takes¬†me¬†about¬†an¬†hour¬†to¬†do¬†my¬†hair¬†completely. Then¬†I¬†put¬†on¬†a¬†wrap¬†and¬†make¬†it¬†a¬†nice¬†meditative¬†process,¬†¬Ľ –¬† told¬†the¬†Daily¬†Mail. At¬†18,¬†Rapunzel¬†stopped¬†cutting¬†her¬†ends,¬†and¬†by¬†32¬†she¬†had¬†grown¬†her¬†hair¬†to¬†almost¬†two¬†meters.¬†To¬†pin¬†it,¬†Francesca¬†uses¬†real¬†knitting¬†needles.

Francesca’s¬†mother¬†says¬†that¬†she¬†herself¬†was¬†not¬†allowed¬†to¬†grow¬†her¬†hair¬†long¬†when¬†she¬†was¬†little,¬†so¬†she¬†let¬†her¬†daughter¬†fulfill¬†her¬†dream¬†of¬†being¬†a¬†fairytale¬†mermaid.
