WASHINGTON (WJLA) — A Virginia woman with hair down to her ankles cut and donated it Thursday morning. And while she's at it, she set a new Guinness World Record.

Zahab Kamal Khan last cut her hair when she was 13 years old. Now, she's 30. She credits her grandmother's oil for helping keep her hair healthy. She applies it twice a week.

Khan set the record for a new category: "most hair donated to a charity by an individual." She and her dad have dreamed of this day since she was a young girl.

She has decided to donate her hair to children with hair loss.

I'm kind of nervous and excited to see my short hair, but I'm going to miss my hair," Khan said.
