Real-Life Rapunzel Goes Viral on Social Media

This real-life Rapunzel has been growing her hair for 13 years. Dashik Gubanova Freckle, from Russia, has become an Instagram celebrity after posting pictures of her long hair.

Freckle hasn’t cut her hair since 2003, she’s made it clear to her 104,000 followers that her Rapunzel locks aren’t going anywhere until they touch her toes.

Critics have suggested cutting it off in the name of cancer, and considering the minimum length required to donate for a wig is 10 inches, there’s a pretty good chance she could donate a few.

Freckle wrote in a post:

This post is for those who say that I should donate their hair for wigs … In 14 years, I cut a scythe and donate hair for wigs.

Today, I grow hair. My goal is to grow them to toe. (Sorry for my English).

We’re assuming what she’s saying here is no, she will not donate her hair until it touches her toes. But she might in 14 years with a scythe (a tool used for cutting crops).
