In a video that has since gone viral, the Asian woman says she did not wash her hair over the fear of experiencing bad luck.
From the video, Jiam who is in her thirties hails from Trang in Thailand.
According to Daily Mail, the woman asked her village elders what to do with the hair and as a response, they told her cutting their hair would bring bad luck to her.
"When Jiam reached her thirties, her hair started to naturally twill together. Instead of washing or cutting it, she asked her village elders for advice. They told her that cutting or washing her hair would bring terrible bad luck to her," said the report.
For the fear of any misfortune, the superstitious woman headed to her elders' advice and refused to touch her hair.
Although she is a bit shorter, her hair runs up to her feet and is about to touch the ground. Her hair grew into one enormous dreadlock.
Jiam has refused to cut or wash her dreadlock. In the video, she is seen pouring water to the thick dreadlock at the edge.
