During this year’s lockdown, a lot of people were freaking out for not being able to visit the hairdresser for a few weeks, but one Indian man claims he has gone almost a century without getting his haircut even once.
Doddapalliah, who is reportedly 95-years-old, is revered by many as a human deity in his home town of Molakalmuru, Chitradurga district, needs to have his hair wrapped into a giant ball on top of his head and secured with cloth just so he can move around. That’s because his entangled locks measure a whopping 24 feet (7.3 meters) in length.
According to a viral Newsflare video Doddapalliah himself believes himself to be a human deity, and has never once trimmed his locks for fear of losing his status as a human god. Although the long and heavy hair is obviously more of a hindrance than a blessing, especially at his age, he would rather ask people to help him wrap his hair rather than getting it cut.
