Real-life Rapunzel has no plans to chop incredible 2-metre long mop

Latvia's answer to Rapunzel, Aliia Nasyrova, says she has no plans to cut her hair which is more than 2.3 metres long. 

Ms Nasyrova told the Daily Mail she was so drawn to fairytale heroines that she aspired to have hair like one, and won't be giving it up anytime soon.

Ms Nasyrova has been growing her hair for over 20 years, and trims it once a month to keep it healthy. She only washes it once a week as it takes an entire day to dry naturally. 

Her 2kg mane is significantly longer than she is, so she often braids it to keep it out of harm's way. Onlookers marvel on in awe, and Ms Nasyrova says she gets mixed feedback on her lengthy locks. 

Husband Ivan Balaban says it affects their holiday plans when they have to stay indoors while it dries, but her mop is like another family member who takes up more space in bed than he does.
