Biography of Natasha Moraes de Andrade

Natasha Moraes de Andrade is a Brazilian teenage girl known for her 1.6-meter long hair. At the age of 12, she realized that her long hair was causing her too much trouble and did not bring any benefits. It took her five hours a day to wash and comb her hair, which often brought her to tears. She also had constant fear of someone cutting her beautiful hair. Eventually, Natasha made the decision to cut her hair to solve these problems. Despite feeling sad about losing her long hair, she went through with it and ended up with hair approximately 40 centimeters long.

Selling her Hair for a Good Cause

Although Natasha felt like she had suddenly become bald, there was a positive outcome. She sold her hair successfully, earning $5,000, which was a significant amount for her family from a poor area. Natasha wisely gave the money to her parents, who started making plans to renovate their house. With the funds, they could finally build Natasha her own room, which she had always dreamed of. They also planned to install a ventilation system, which had been lacking and causing difficulties for the family.

She found herself with a lot of free time, allowing her to ride her bicycle and learn Spanish and English. She also enjoyed the freedom of being able to swim in the sea without worrying about getting her hair wet. Despite no longer having her long locks, Natasha's reputation as "Rapunzel" stuck with her. Her schoolmates still called her by that nickname, and people would occasionally recognize her on the streets.
