Despite all her life being called names like ‘Chewbacca’ and ‘Wolf Girl,’ 17-year-old Supatra ‘Natty’ Sasuphan from Bangkok…has found the love of her life.
Natty’s even elected to shave her face after wedding her now husband.
Dubbed the hairiest girl in the world, Sasuphan suffers from a disorder known as Hypertrichosis Lanuginosa. It is too known as “werewolf syndrome”. This condition induces excessive amounts of hair on a person’s body. The hair grows randomly in ranging varying amounts.
Sometimes inherited, this genetic disorder is the result from an impulsive type of mutation. Now and then, Hypertrichosis Lanuginosa can occur later in life – when someone is diagnosed with a cancer of some type. Normally, this is caught when an individual is in the later stages of their cancer.
Natty has been previously documented by the Guinness World Book of Records back in 2010 as being the world’s hairiest girl. At the time she was just 10 years old.
Dating back to the Middle Ages, there have been only a rare few individuals with this disorder. “I don’t feel any different to anyone else, and I’ve got lots of friends at school…Being hairy makes me special,” Sasuphan said after she won the title of being the hairiest girl on the planet.
“There were a few people who used to tease me and call me monkey face but they don’t do it anymore. I’m very used to this condition. I can’t feel the hair as it has always been like this. I don’t feel anything. It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day.”
