To keep her mane healthy and thick, she only washes it once a week and dries it for hours. After the washing, she uses secret oil made by her mother on it.
The teenage record holder avoids clumsiness with her hair by wearing it in a bun. She said the hair is something she is very proud of and glad that it gave her the world title.
