An unusual family lives in the American state of Illinois. The fact is that mother Tere Lyn Svetlechich Russell has not cut her hair for more than 25 years.
As a teenager, she decided herself not to shorten her curls and still keeps her word. But that’s not the most surprising thing. Her three daughters also decided to follow their mother’s example and stopped cutting their hair.
The total hair length of Tere Lin and her three daughters is approximately 3.5 meters! The 43-year-old herself has curls that almost reach the floor.
To wash away such a shock, she must kneel, otherwise she will simply fall under the weight of wet hair.
Caring for such curls is not easy. A single shampoo takes a quarter of a bottle of conditioner and a lot of time is spent combing.
Plus, long hair causes a lot of problems. Children constantly step on their mother’s hair.
When you slam the car door, the curls are often pinched and the vacuum cleaner sucks them up.
The heroine’s husband, named Chip, is crazy about his wife’s hair. He fell in love with Tere Lin only because of her gorgeous hair.
The couple has five children in total. One-year-old Shapin has not yet joined the Rapunzel club and her only son will not be a member of this club. Although, who knows, maybe he wants to become a long-haired guy.
In the town of Morris, where an unusual family lives, Tere Lin has won the competition for the longest ponytail for many years in a row, and her daughters do not lag behind their mother in winning prizes.
Tere Lin doesn’t force her daughters to grow their hair, it’s a conscious choice for everyone. And if one of them wants to cut her long curls, she won’t mind.
