When Supatra “Nat” Sasuphan was 10 years old, she was named the “Hairiest Girl in the World” by Guinness World Records.
Eight years later, she’s no longer a young girl, and she’s no longer hairy!
Nat was born with a very rare genetic condition called Ambras syndrome, more commonly referred to as “Werewolf syndrome.”
What it means is that Nat was born with excessive hair growth all over her body, but the thickest hair was on her face and back, according to her father.
There have been so few known sufferers of the condition since the Middle Ages that doctors have failed to find a cure.
Laser treatment was thought to be the best treatment, but it led to the hair growing back thicker and very quickly.
When she was a young girl, she was often made fun of at school and called names like “Wolf Girl” and “Monkey Face” but Nat kept her head held high and embraced her appearance.
