‘Real Rapunzel’ with 58in locks hounded by flirty admirers who beg to touch hair
A “real life Rapunzel” is inundated with flirty messages from male admirers.
Kateryna Demers, who lives in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA, enchants people with her 58-inch-long locks.
As she posts pictures of herself online, men joke her hair would look “great on their pillows” – and one bloke even wants to shave her head for £350,000.
Women are equally as impressed with Kateryna's luscious barnet as they beg for tips on how to grow theirs out too.
The Ukrainian influencer, has more than 99,200 followers, admits that maintaining her tresses requires a lot of effort.
It takes her two hours to clean and dry her hair, which she does without heat and keeps looking sleek by using leave-in conditioner.
Kateryna, who shampoos her hair twice a week, said: "To look after my hair, I eat well, do sports, and take care of it by using the best products of the hair care industry.
"I don't expose it very often to heating tools, brush it carefully and patiently, sometimes for hours and I wear it mostly up in a bun or braided…
"Like a plant, a healthy head of hair needs love and music to grow strong. Feed your scalp.
"Often, if I see another woman with good looking hair, I will follow her to ask for some advice on how she looks after her hair.
"I cut the ends every few months. If I didn't, it would probably be on the floor by now."
The influencer thinks all this effort is well worth it though.
She confessed: ”I like how it keeps my head warm. I like its smoothness, shine, smell, enjoy making various hairstyles.
“I like to take videos and being mesmerised by the result, I really enjoy my natural highlights – no colourist can make them as beautiful.
"Also, I enjoy being able to dress up as long-haired characters and not having to use wigs.”
Kateryna is used to all the attention she gets thanks to her extra long locks.
She said: "Being on the Internet, one gets to meet a wealth of people.
“I had a request to cut my hair from a German businessman – he started out asking me to cut it off for £17,755 ($25,000) – eventually after I refused, he raised his offer to £355,181 ($500,000) if I would let him shave my head entirely.
"That was tempting; that much money buys a lot of wigs and purses, but in the end I decided I couldn't go through with it.
"Many men – and some women – have offered money to brush or touch my hair. Men also say, 'It would look great on my pillow.’”

Sometimes, strangers let the curiosity get the better of them by reaching out to touch the Instagrammer’s hair.
She said: "Many people come up to me in public and start touching it without even asking.
“It’s strange because if you see a nice ass or chest on a woman you wouldn't walk up and rub it, but people aren't so inhibited about running their fingers through a stranger's hair…
"I will often wear my hair up in a bun – it's easier to keep track of, and discourages the happy fingers of random pedestrians!”
