Kateryna has been sharing pictures of her incredible hair on Instagram where she has a huge following of 99.2K followers.
Thanks to her hair, Kateryna is always the centre of attention and both men and women compliment her on her locks calling her a real-life ‘Rapunzel’.

Kateryna is inundated with messages from men – and sometimes women – who offer her money to brush and touch her hair with some men saying that her hair would look great on their pillow.People also approach her in public and touch her hair without her permission.
A German businessman even offered Kateryna £355,181 ($500,000) to let him shave her hair off to keep – which she politely declined.
‘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,’ said Kateryna.
‘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.
‘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.

The hair model has said she only washes her hair twice a week in a process which takes over two hours and never uses heat to style or dry her hair to prevent breakages
‘Also, I enjoy being able to dress up as long-haired characters and not having to use wigs.
‘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.’

‘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.’
Kateryna often wears her hair up in a bun or ponytail to take the weight off of her head and to stop people from touching it without her permission.
‘Like a plant, a healthy head of hair needs love and music to grow strong,’ said Kateryna.’Feed your scalp.
‘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.
‘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.’
