This is a rare hereditary disease which is characterized by abundant hair on virtually all of the human body.
Faces of the girls is almost completely covered with hair – they have very thick eyebrows and men’s beards.
In the Indian village women with the disease have almost no chance of finding a husband, but the sisters are hoping to arrange their personal life. They regularly use hair removal creams and dream to save money for laser hair removal that costs several thousand dollars.
Their mother, Anita Sambhadzhi Raut said that children rare disease inherited from their father. Anita was forced to marry him at age 12, and she did not know that he suffers from hypertrichosis.
