ShareTap Staff 1/31/2019
You've probably heard of the saying, "Your hair is your crowning glory" before. It's one of the first things people notice and can sometimes say a lot about who we are. After all, our hair is that one crown that we can never take off. So keeping it polished, preened, and healthy-looking is important.
Do you ever feel confident whenever you're having a gorgeous hair day? Well, that's because great hair makes us feel like we're on top of our game. The same can be said whenever we head to the hairdresser. A little snip or a touch of color is enough to give us a much-needed confidence boost.
While we're all feeling thankful for our healthy head of hair, meet the lady who loves her hair so much - she chose not to cut it for 28 years. Now she's going viral and sharing the secret to her incredibly long and healthy locks.
Alena Kravechenko of Ukraine proudly shows off her 6 feet 5 inches mane whenever she can. The honey-blonde locks extend way below her ankles. This remarkable length has pushed many folks to dub her as the "Real-life Rapunzel".
The mum-of-two is proud to have earned such title. Alena credits her mom, Angela, for inspiring her to keep her hair long. At just 5-years-old, Angela had advised her daughter not to cut it. Now 33, Alena has continued to heed her mom's advice. She even admits that she has no plans in cutting her hair anytime soon.
We all know that it's important to protect our hair and keep it looking gorgeous every single day. But imagine having hair as long as Alena's! Surprisingly, she keeps her routine simple. Alena washes her hair at least once a week, opting only for natural oils when it comes to providing nourishment. She also gives a big thumbs down to heating tools such as hair irons and blowdryers.
If there's another thing that Alena gives a thumbs down to, it's of how long it takes to wash dry her hair! Well, its a small sacrifice, especially when you're looking this amazing.
Alena says that people usually stop at their tracks whenever they catch a glimpse of her hair. But no one loves it more than her husband. Though he was initially surprised by the sight of it, he's grown quite fond of Alena's locks over the years.
When asked if Alena plans to ever go for a trim, she gives a hard no. Alena considers her hair as an extension of her soul and therefore refuses to cut a single inch.
Now, that's a story that'll get us through a bad hair day! Don't forget to learn more about this real-life Rapunzel.
