Though Ni can be seen happily showing off her real-life Rapunzel hair, it's reportedly very difficult to maintain. Ni says she spends two hours a day washing and drying her hair, and even got it caught in an elevator one time. 

Now, her usual 'do is a wound up bun on the top of her head to keep it out of harm's way.

Due to the demanding upkeep, she threatended to cut off her locks in 2013, but ultimately decided she could not part ways with it. Now, her goal is to end up in the Guinness Book of World Records.

But is she eligible to hold the world record? We’re a frayed knot. The current one is held by another Chinese woman named Xie Qiuping, who set the world record with her 18-foot-long mane in 2004. Looks like Ni still has a little ways to grow!
