“In 14 years, I cut a scythe. And donate hair for wigs. Today, I grow hair. My goal is to grow them to toe. (Sorry for my English).”


The Russian also revealed to the world that the trick to such healthy hair was linseed oil.

“I want to talk about this product, as linseed oil, useful properties which are very important for human health,” she wrote.
