What happened when Rapunzel left the wholesale halloween costumes tower? She got married, kept growing her hair and had three daughters following in their mother's footsteps.

Okay, so there may not have been a Halloween Costumes Outlet tower, but Tere Lynn Svetlecich Russell and her daughters have a combined hair length of over four metres.

Tere Lynn, 43, has to wash her 73-inch mane while kneeling on the floor, as it drags her body to the floor when wet because of its weight. And while you might imagine such long hair to be in bad condition, the hairdresser in the video gives it a glowing review.

 

But aside from washing dilemmas, her flowing locks are winning her acclaim across Illinois, USA, where she lives with her five children and husband Chip.
