When it comes to hair, I think we’re all a little envious of the Disney Princesses. Whether it’s Ariel’s red mermaid tresses or Jasmine’s luscious locks, most people would make a deal with an evil villain for just a bit of fairytale magic to look that good 24/7.
However, one person in India may already be living the dream. He’s not a Disney character and he’s certainly not a Princess, but he just may be the closest we’ve got to a real-life Rapunzel.
Meet Savjibhai Rathwa, who lives in India, a man who hasn’t cut his hair in over 50 years!
If you’d like to learn more about Rathwa’s life or just want to see his hair rolled out from end to end, check out the video below:
The 65-year-old’s tresses now measure a whopping 62 feet in length! What’s even more impressive is the reason behind why he hasn’t had a haircut in over five decades.
Savjibhai claims a Hindu god came to him in a dream and told him not to. That sounds like a pretty great plot for a new Disney movie to me!
“I was 12 when I got the swapnadosh (direction in a dream) from Lord Shiva that I should never cut my hair. It is since then I have been growing my hair,” Rathwa explained. “Everybody — including family and friends — have been cool with my ever-growing hair.”
