Hair-Raising Experience: Meet Akanksha Yadav, The Lady With Longest Mane

You may have seen women with long hair in your family or among acquaintances. But this lady will take your breath away.

Meet Akanksha Yadav, whose hair length measures a staggering 3.01 metres, or 9 feet 10.5 inches!

The lady from Maharashtra’s Thane has easily found a place in the Limca Book of World Records 2020-2022. The 30th volume of the book of records features her as title holder for having the longest hair.

It obviously requires a great effort and commitment to maintain such long hair over years, but the pharmaceutical and management professional considers it a ‘blessing.’

“Winning a national title in itself is significant. Records are great. However, fulfilment, contribution and ardour are even greater,” Akanksha was quoted as saying by indianexpress.com.

A fitness enthusiast, Akanksha also holds the title for longest hair in India Book of Records.

Many would be curious to know how the part-time model maintains her floor-length, lustrous hair, but Akanksha just quipped: “I don’t spend more than 20 minutes on hair wash or other hair tasks during a day.”

But has she ever cut her hair?

“I have chopped it from beyond floor-length to below waist,” Akanksha informed.
