Cen Yingyuan shows off her 6ft 7in long hair, the result of 11 years without having it cut
A Chinese woman hasn't cut her hair for the past 11 years and her locks now hang at 6ft 7in long. In comparison to her long hair, 44-year-old Cen Yingyuan only stands 5ft feet in height, meaning that unless she ties up her tresses her hair trails on the floor as she walks.
Cen, who lives in Guigang, in the Guangxi Province, says ‘I have saved the hair for 11 years, and I am quite addicted to it.’
Ordeal: Cen washes her hair every four days. She is forced to stand over a bucket to wash the entire length
She treasures her hair so much she even collects any strands that drop out. ‘Starting from 2005 I started to collect the dropped ones when combing. Usually I can collect around 50g a year.’
Addicted: Cen saves every strand of her precious hair that falls out, collecting around 50g of hair a year
Cen takes good care of her hair and is proud that there is no grey. ‘If the hair started to turn grey, I'll dye it all white, making myself have another look.’
Cen's hair takes her over an hour to wash and an additional half a day to fully dry
The trick to keeping such a vast amount of hair shiny, according to Cen, is to rinse it with a bottle of beer
She is unable to wash it in a shower or bath due to its extreme length and is forced to bend over a bucket.
