An 83-year-old Vietnamese woman Nguyen Thi Dinh from Ben Tre Province reportedly stopped cutting her hair when she was 19.
The long hair shaped like a snake now measures 6 meters in length.
The python-shaped hair came as a result of Nguyen’s bad hair day at a salon.
She disclosed she started experiencing severe headaches after she cut her hair for the first time at 19.
The headaches were so bad her parents took her to see a doctor but even prescribed treatment didn’t work.
The headaches went away when her hair started growing longer and stopped cutting her hair since then.
She said: “Since then I have stopped cutting my hair, and as it grew back, my disease gradually improved. Strangely, when I washed my hair, my head started hurting again. So I stopped washing my hair completely and didn’t let my hair touch water”.
Her hair became more burdensome to manage as it grew longer and she had to start bundling it in dreadlocks.
At over 6 meters long, the hair on her head is now grey, with most of the long “snake” being now brown.
The brown part represents the memories of her younger days.
