Is this woman with ankle-length blond hair the real-life Rapunzel?


With strawberry blonde hair measuring 64 inches long, this woman is the closest the world may get to a real-life Rapunzel.

Andrea Colson, 33, of Micronesia, has been growing her ankle-length hair nearly her entire life.

"The most I've ever had taken off is a few inches," Colson said in an interview with the Press Association. "It would be like cutting off a body part. My hair is what makes me unique."

Colson, who spends her days working with children, says her hair often reminds people of the movie Tangled.

"Mostly, people are very sweet," she said. "They often compare me to Rapunzel, which makes my day."

She explains that her hair care routine includes washing only with cold water, applying coconut oil treatments twice a week, getting a trim every few months and straightening it only once or twice a year.

๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’ž๐ŸญLisa Frank Rainbow Surprised ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿ’ž๐ŸŒˆ Well it isn't quite Thursday yet, but I'm throwing back to the #pulpriothair rainbow'ed look just the same! This was definitely a favorite in 2016! I use my model @friendswithdevils really quite frequently, and people ask me all the time how we keep her hair in such good shape! ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป Firstly, I always use @brazilianbondbuilder in ALL formulas ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž, b3 is absolutely amazing! There is a reason why so many big stylists are switching to b3, and that's because it WORKS ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! I use it in all of my bleach and it does not slow me down with lengthened processing time, or force me to use harsher levels of developer, I also love that it is a one step system, so it saves time over all! I can then use B3 in my direct dye, turning any direct dye into the ultimate conditioning treat for the hair ๐Ÿ˜. Lily also uses the b3 shampoo, conditioner and mask at home to continue to maintain those bonds! โœŒ๐Ÿป Second, for my ladies who love to switch their color up frequently I try to stay realistic about what can and cannot come out of the hair. Sure, that dark navy looks AMAZING now, but pulling that out for next week's pastel rainbow look may be a challenge ๐Ÿ™ˆ. I always try to think of my fashion colors in the long term, rather than just in-the-now! It's always important to talk to your clients about whether or not they have thought about what they want to do after THIS color! Sometimes it's best to dilute your color a bit to avoid having to re-bleach to remove color, especially when you know your client will be back in four weeks with another Pinterest Mermaid she wants to be turned into! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿญ And lastly, make sure your clients are using high quality shampoo, conditioner, styling tools, and products! Salon quality products can be the difference between color that lasts for weeks and color that lasts for just a couple washes, and quality conditioner is essential for keeping compromised hair from snapping! I also ask my clients to make sure that any heat styling tools they use have ADJUSTABLE temperature settings and recommend a safe temperature for them! @pulpriothair #brazilianbondbuilder #inspiredbyb3 #rainbowhair #pastelhair

But the most important part of taking care of her hair is eating a spoonful of peanut butter every day.

"I think the peanut butter has definitely helped," Colson said. "I notice my hair becoming dry and brittle if I haven't eaten any."

Most days, she prefers to wear her hair up, which is only possible with special hair ties.

"If I'm braiding it and can't reach the bottom, I'll just wrap it around my neck," she explained. "It's hard to keep it up in just one clip of bobby pins, so I have to use a variation of different things to keep it all in place."

Drying her hair can also be tricky, she said, explaining she needs to drape it over a pillow and down to the floor to dry overnight, and it can take several days to dry completely.

But for Colson, it's all part of the routine.

"I'm so used to long hair that I don't find it difficult to manage," she said.
