Many dream of long thick hair, but two conditions are necessary for this. First, you need to have extraordinary patience, grow your hair, and then spend a lot of time caring for it. Second, you can’t do without the right set of genes: if hair is brittle and thin from birth, cosmetics won’t help the cause.
Alyona Kravchenko, 34, from Odessa, was lucky with her patience and her genes. She is called Rapunzel for her gorgeous 1.8 meter long hair!
Alena has been growing her hair since the age of five, on the advice of her mother.
“My mother instilled in me a love of long hair since childhood,” she says.
She hasn’t cut her hair in almost 30 years – and won’t, although her hair has long since grown past her height (1.68m).
“I love my braid so much that I never thought of 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 about it, 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’s part of me – my beauty and my wealth!”
To keep her hair healthy, a woman air-dries it and nourishes it with special products.
“The most important thing I never do: I don’t dry my hair, I don’t use curling irons, I don’t brush wet hair (it dries naturally), everything is taboo. I wash my hair once a week, I use natural masks, 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 is very simple:
“To have beautiful long hair, you just have to want it and love it”
