Smita Srivastava has been growing her since she was 14 years old.

A woman from Uttar Pradesh, India, has set a world record for having the longest hair on a living person. Smita Srivastava, 46, has 7 feet and 9 inches long hair, which she has been growing since she was 14. Smita’s mother inspired her to grow her hair, and the Indian actresses from the 1980s, who had long and beautiful hair, also influenced her.

“In Indian culture, goddesses traditionally had very long hair. In our society, it is considered inauspicious to cut hair, so that is why women used to grow hair. Long hair enhances the beauty of women,” Smita shared. 

Smita washes her hair twice a week. After washing, it takes about 3 hours to dry, detangle, and then style them. It takes 30 to 45 minutes just to wash the hair. She first dries her hair with a towel. Then she tries to solve them by hand. He has to stand on the bed to comb his hair.

After entering into the record books, Smita expressed, “God answered my prayers.”
