The original post was referencing a picture of Dyq on TLHS which is no longer on the web.  I found the picture for you, using the Wayback Machine and edited the post to show it.   I think "floor length" is an understatement!

I'm thinking that should be considered floor-length squared? That's one of the pictures that actually inspired my long hair dreams!

A fascinating small piece about Dyq herself....  Smiley (Ignore Chinese text download.)

Quote:
“5 to 6 hours are needed for one wash and at least two bottles of shampoo are needed for one wash.”

http://www.tlhw.com/tlhw000/longest/e-1-3-dyq001.htm

Plus a couple of pics (at the very bottom) from an old collection I've still got from the late '90's. Apologies for their size and poor quality, but I think it must be something to do with rescanning pics originally taken off the net ? Still trying to figure it out.... Undecided You can however copy and paste them straight into Word to see them properly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally some pics of Diane Witt for comparison !

*sighs in awe*  Wow.  Thanks for the pics and links, Cadie!  I may now stop having my hair trimmed every 12 weeks.  I don't think I could go for 15 years w/o a trim though!

The young driver of the factory learned about this and said to Dai, Go wash your hair as usual, I will let your hair dry soon. After washing hair, the driver asked Dai with her wet hair stand on the truck and then carried her going along the streets. Gradually, Dai's wet long hair was dried by the sway gentle breeze.


I've since been picturing our frail little Dyq trying to stand upright tears streaming out of her eyes, without her head being pulled off her shoulders, on the back of an open truck with all the weight of about 10 feet of wet hair blowing out behind her, and it's a shade fearsome to say the least !!   Cheesy

Given say the average indoor towel drying times of knee length hair, how long would it have taken her wet hair to lift off the floor with the wind in the first place ? Even at the gentle (!) swaying breeze of at least the minimum possible 20 mph needed, it has got to be ages ! Yet even if it did can you imagine the dreadful state it would be in at the end ? The tangles would never be unravelled ! I mean talk about a Chinese puzzle never mind the pneumonia and permanent head colds as a result !  Shocked

And even if it didn't tangle doesn't it make you shudder something awful thinking not only of the metal suspension parts and road wheels immediately beneath the truck itself, but all the lampposts, trees, cars and bicycles rapidly going the other way !  Shocked Shocked

Yyyes....very nice story and all that but sadly just a little too publicity based and far fetched I think somehow... Roll Eyes
