August 5, 2019 100 By Kailee Schamberger


My name is Nilanshi and I’ve got the
record for the Longest hair on a teenager I’m 16 years old and I started when I was 6 years old. I got a bad haircut and it was really bad
for me I cried and then I decided that I don’t cut
my hair and then I grew my hair since I was 6 years
old. In the week, once a week I wash my hair
and it takes half an hour to dry, and one hour to comb my hair
I style it as a long braid and also as a bun on my head
And when I’m going to an occasion, or I’m playing table tennis
So when I play table tennis I bun my hair My mother helps me to braid and to comb my
hair and she always supports me for growing my
hair and due to my mother I’m growing my hair like
this and I set the record I have 170.5cm long hair, so people say that you face so many problems with your hair
But I don’t face any problems with my hair I do all these sports and all the things with my hair
It’s a lucky charm for me, dearly My friends call me a real life Rapunzel
And they’re proud of me that I started growing my hair
and I set a world record I feel very excited
and I feel very happy and it’s a big, big dream for to be a world record and to set a world record
