 Another owner of extremely long hair. At this time it’s a man. A resident of Vietnam Tran Van Hai grew so long hair that any woman would envy. However, now the champion is no longer alive. And at the time of his death, the hair length was 6 meters and 80 centimeters. However, this result is not recorded in the Guinness Book of Records. Tran Van Hay didn’t cut his hair for 50 years. All because he noticed that he started to get sick after each visit to any hairdresser.

Tran Van Hay did not bother to care about his appearance and his hair. Therefore, it was more like a thick curls rope. He was putting it around his head, getting some sort of weird cap. According to the man, in that way his hair bothered him the least. 

However, the hair of such immense length in general is very difficult to maintain. Therefore, even hair washing turns into serious problems. After all, in order to wash the hair a person needs a few hours a day and one bottle of shampoo. Also you should add drying and combing.

Therefore, hair care can last or a day, maybe more. It turns out quite a troublesome task, even though it is held only once a few weeks (for the hair of such length). That is why Tran Van Hay did not wash his hair for several years. By the way, the appearance of Vai Hay Tran, and in particular his hair, helped him to maintain the image at work. Man specialized in the treatment of alternative medicine. His house in the province of Kien Gian was constantly opened to all comers.  He helped people get rid of various diseases, completely free.

Previously to Tran Van Hay there was another record for the length of the hair. A man named Hu Satio lived in Thailand. His hair had grown to 5 meters 79 centimeters. Unfortunately, the owner of this luxury died in the early 2000s. Relatives said that the champion ‘invited the death himself’. All because Hu Satio quite often had the journalists visiting him at home, moreover, he allowed everyone to admire his hair and photograph with him. And according to the known unwritten law of that place, it is a big sin, because hair is considered an intimate part of everyone's body.
