Keeping a head of hair of 1.8-m long Rapunzel type was a herculean problem for 12-year old Natasha Moraes de Andrade of Rio de Janeiro and, she has got it all cut off and has collected a bounty of $9000 in the bargain as reported in mailonline of 26th April 2012.
She did weep at the loss of her thick chestnut color hair but, she was also relieved because maintaining such long tresses took up plenty of time and she was unable to enjoy the carefree life of any other 12-year old girl like going to the beach.
Washing the hair consumed at least four hours every week and then nearly one hour and a half to brush it every day – it was a sort of misery.
She now has a bob and it takes hardly a few minutes to wash and brush.
However, having sold off her hair for a princely sum of $9000 she is looking forward to give a new look to her house.
