Many dreams of long thick hair, but two conditions are needed for this.
First, you need to show extraordinary patience, grow your hair, and then spend a lot of time caring for them.
Secondly, you can’t do without the right set of genes: if the hair is brittle and thin from birth, cosmetics will not help the cause.
34-year-old Alyona Kravchenko from Odessa was lucky with both patience and genes. She is called Rapunzel for her gorgeous hair 1.8 meters long!
Alena has been growing her hair since the age of five, on the advice of her mother.
“My mother instilled in me a love for long hair since childhood,” she says.
She has not cut her hair for almost 30 years – and is not going to, although her hair has long outgrown her height (1.68 m).
“I love my braid so much that I never thought about cutting it for a second. I don’t see or imagine myself with short or dyed hair!”
Although it takes time to take care of such a hairstyle, Alena does not complain, because she loves her hair very much.
“It’s not difficult for me to wear such hair and constantly take care of it, it makes me happy because it is part of me – my beauty and my wealth!”
To keep her hair healthy, a woman dries it in the air and nourishes it with special products.
“The most important thing I never do: I don’t blow-dry my hair, I don’t use curling irons, I don’t brush wet hair (it dries naturally), it’s all taboo. I wash my hair once a week and use natural masks, and different oils to nourish my hair; the main care is professional cosmetics. And, of course, I also eat dried fruits, nuts, and homemade cottage cheese.”
The main advice for those who want the same beautiful hair for themselves is very simple:
“To have long beautiful hair, you just need to want and love it.”
