WASHINGTON (CIRCA via CNN NEWSOURCE) — Your long hair may be a pain sometimes, but it probably doesn't drag on the ground behind you like this teenager's long locks.
With locks that measure almost 8 feet long, Olena holds the Ukrainian record for longest hair.
Her mother says she hasn't done anything special to get it so long: just normal shampoo and conditioner. Olena says the only secret is loving your hair.
Washing it takes her half an hour. So does braiding it, which is one reason she usually wears it up.
Now that she's locked down Ukraine's children's record, she hopes to break the world record for her age group. After that, she'll tackle the adult category.
