A woman hasn't cut her hair for 15 years.

Rin Kambe, who describes herself as the 'Japanese Rapunzel' and uses her six-foot locks as an expression of her creativity.

Kambe's jet black hair measures 6ft 3in lengthwise and she monitors the amount of iron in her diet to make sure it keeps growing,

She told LADbible: "About 15 years ago, when I started to earnestly pray for my dream as an artist, I decided to cut the dyed part of my hair and grew my super long natural hair beautifully, because it felt like natural, beautiful, super-long hair was a weapon of dance expression.

"My hair is straight, black, and I like the fact that my hair can express the beauty of Asia.

"There are people in the world who appreciate it, and there are also people who think it is a monster of hair.

"I think there are many opinions. However, I believe that natural hair leads to maximum self-expression, and I am very happy if people feel amazing when they see my Rapunzel dance show."
