Amou Haji is the 87-year-old man who hasn't taken a bath in 67 years. You heard right.
The Iranian man spends his days in isolation near a village in the Kermanshah province and has not washed in at least 67 years.
According to locals, Haji is always covered in ash and dirt and has not taken the literal plunge because he's afraid of water. The 87-year old believes that if he takes a bath he will fall ill.

Man who hasn't wash his hairs in 80 years
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported about a man who hadn't cut or washed his hairs in 80 years.
The nonagenarian told Reuters he coils his hair and ties it up using a scarf whenever he wants to look neat and presentable.
The 92-year-old added that he cannot dare use a comb to straighten, detangle or style his tresses because it goes against his seven gods and nine powers.
The Vietnamese national revealed back when he was in school, management asked him to cut off his hair and since that went against his faith, he left and never looked back.
At some point in his life, Van had nice thick hair that had a fine black colour. He would comb it whenever he needed to look presentable.
