It used to be Disney princesses that gave us unrealistic hair expectations, but one woman from Russia is reminding us of the original gal who started it all — Rapunzel.

Dashik Gubanova Freckle hasn't cut her hair in 13 years, according to her Instagram profile, and she doesn't plan to do so anytime soon. In fact, she's been on a mission since 2003 to grow out her mane until it reaches her toes. Once she reaches her goal, she plans to donate her hair to be made into numerous wigs for those in need, as a truly charitable princess does.
