Disney’s Tangled In Real Life: Woman Shows What Happens When You Don’t Cut Your Hair For 23 Years

Have you ever dreamed of having luscious, long locks of hair like in fairytales? Well, meet a real-life Rapunzel – Angelica Baranova from Pokosnoye village, Russia. No extensions or anything – she just simply hasn’t cut her hair short since she was five years old!

The now-28-year-old has her hair almost sweeping the floor and, obviously, gets tons of attention for it. People used to come up to her on the street, ask tons of questions and even try to touch her beautiful locks, which is why she usually wears scarves now and hides her hair when going out.

It all started when she was still a child and her parents wouldn’t let Angelica cut her hair as they believed she had a great chance to let it grow, since she had always had it so thick and healthy. Angelica has even won a competition called “Russian braid” and received the main prize which was an apartment in Moscow! Ever since that encouragement, she has just let it grow more and more.

When asked how she takes care of such a spectacular hairdo, Angelica didn’t think it was anything out of the ordinary. She simply washes it twice a week, adds a little coconut or burdock oil for a few minutes, rinses it off, and then just leaves it to air dry.

Check out these pictures Angelica has shared! #HairGoals or #NoThanks?

However, she admits it can be difficult to walk or move with hair this long

Despite some of the struggles, Angelica thinks her hair is worth it and makes her look more beautiful

Angelica didn’t plan originally for her hair to get this long, it just happened over time

From now on, this is what I’ll have in mind when people say “let your hair down”

Why is a 28 year old woman called a girl in the title? No 28 year old man would be called a boy. Anyway, she and her epic hair are gorgeous and if Disney ever wants to do a live action Tangled, they better pick her!

Girl, woman, and female are what I am. Those words are not offensive. Now you call me mean or derogatory names and I'd agree with it being malicious. But calling me what I am is not bad especially when it's describing me.

Somehow I lived a long time without knowing that human hair has a length it grows to before it just stops, just like animal fur or body hair. It just happens that it is so long most people never get to their maximum. it's also widely variable from person to person. The record for the longest beard has stood for 100 years because no one else has been able to grow theirs as long, not for lack of trying.

The length your hair grows seems to really vary. Some people can’t grow their hair below their shoulders.
