Super Long Hair Popular in China?

Posted on April 17, 2007

We did an article a few days ago about this one chinese woman with super long hair.

Not even a week later we find out there is a photo opportunity in Nanjing, capital of east China’s Jiangsu province, to show off their even longer hair.

Also reported recently, Dai Yueqin shows her 4.2-meter-long hair in Tongxiang, east China’s Zhejiang Province March 24, 2005. Dai has kept her hair uncut for 26 years since she was 14 years old.

I guess in the end it is cool… but not as cool as a rock with long hair!

        Hair is not damaged. Her hair looks great. keep it growing. Negative comments are only from jealous people.

        People like Locks of Love sell hair for their own profit and try to make money off people who have cancer

          uh…they’re not saying that you sell your hair to locks of love. sometimes locks of love will charge recipients for those wigs…DUH. they’re not as great as everyone thinks. they’re just a wig middleman trying to make some money.

        I think her hair looks nice and healthy. It’s much longer than I would prefer to wear mine, but I love to see variety. Must everyone look the same? Geez.

        And the split ends comment makes no sense. Don’t believe everything you hear about hair. The models hair is proof that hair doesn’t need all the excessive trimming, etc. to keep off split ends and grow long and healthy hair.

        Donating hair will NOT help people with cancer. People who need wigs are better off with synthetic wigs, they are so much better. The only reason these scam organizations ask for hair donations is to sell the hair for extentions. If you want to help people donate blood or money. Hair doesn't cure anyone.

      I agree. Her long hair is so beautiful. Mine is only waist length, but I’m continuing to grow it even longer. Good luck!

      LOL and Wigs for kids say donate money not hair, we through out 90% of hair immediatly, the 10% we give to the wigmaker he through out another 50%, So more then 95% of the hair that looks so health goes into the thrash can like garbage.

      Please money not hair, we get piles every day, it is expensive to sort and through into garbage to save a few pieces.

      We need money for research not stupid hair, we made a monster, got out of our hands, like the Cylons or the Terminators!!!

      OK

    She should cut it, and donate it to children with cancer so they can have wigs. That would be such a nice thing to do. I always wanted to do that, but I never have the patience to grow mine out. If they would take shorter pieces, I would donate my hair in a heartbeat. She should donate it and help those less fortunate than herself.

      Charlotte , listen i dont think cutting your own hair is needed, go out buy a long or short wig, get one of those hair net things that keep them on and vol’ia! hair for kids with cancer

      And what will YOU donate to help people less fortunate than yourself?
      You don’t know that she doesn’t donate money or time to help others who are less fortunate. There is no reason to change your appearance to help someone.
      Maybe you should stop being so lazy / selfish and donate your hair to help those less fortunate.
      How can you presume to know how fortunate she is or isn’t anyway. Yes her hair is long, but does that mean she is in perfect health with perfect circumstances?
      Comments like this really annoy me and I don’t have long hair. But somehow I manage to be a help to others.

    no she shouldn’t cut it. the Bible says that a women’s uncut hair is her glory and her covering and that she has power OVER the angels with it. my hair is to my knees and i can’t wait until it touches the floor i’ve never cut my hair and i never plain to. long hair is soo beautiful to me and i thank God for all the women out there that don’t cut their hair.

    So you people are basicly saying she sould cut her her to give with to cancer kids? sorry but you don’t let your hair grow to get it cut so other people can have wigs. if it is imortand to you let your own hair grow and donate it.

      Hair donations are not needed. Synthetic wigs are much better. Locks of Love and other organizations like it are fraudulent. They sell almost all of the hair, that's been well documented.

    How in the world do they get super extra long hair like that? I want super long hair but not that long, maybe upto my assssss, that is probably hard to brush out and maintain although it is beautiful and healthy. I wonder what she eats or puts on her hair to get it to grow?

    I'd like to know what she has done to grow it that long – besides not cutting it. And also what she does to retain the length i.e. care, diet, nutrition, vitamins, supplements, oils, etc.

    i think the cancer hair charity thing is way overrated. i don't get it, is there a wig shortage? why does every person with long hair need to cut it so we can make wigs? is there no other way to make wigs? I'm a man and i had hair past my nipples, and when i buzzed it off, the most frequent question i got was, "did you give it to locks of love???" who cares!!! i think the hairdresser sent it in, yeah, but are you going to cut me off from society if she didn't, or what?

      Most of the hair that is donated by gullible people is either thrown away or sold so it can be made into hair extentions. No, there isn't a wig shortage. It's all a scam. Real hair isn't even needed for wigs as synthetic wigs are better in many ways.

    For all those out there saying "Don't cut it just to donate it". Have you ever had a loved one with cancer? Do you not know how they feel about their hair once it's gone? Well I do… and I think it would be fabulous to cut it and donate it. I myself grow my hair out just to donate it every 5 or so years. It is a great way to help those less fortunate than us. I find your comments rather selfish and inconsiderate… Indeed it is their hair and they have every right to do with it what they want.. But considering it's dragging the ground when you wear it down (which leads me to believe you wear it up most of the time) then what's the point in having such long hair?

    As for the "wig shortage"… there probably is a shortage of REAL HAIR (no doubt do to douches like you!) Not everyone wants to go around wearing synthetic wigs.. that you can't wash properly or style the way you wish… you get one style unless you want to buy 20 different wigs (which can be very expensive on top of all the doctor bills). With real hair you can curl it, straighten it, perm it.. color it… do anything you want. Because.. it… is…. real!
