Snippet from the article:
Meet Asha Mandela – whose amazing 55ft locks are longer than a bus. The 47-year-old already has a world record but wants to go even bigger – despite doctors warning it could paralyse her.
“My hair has become part of me. It is my life. I will never cut it,” said the mother-of-one, from Atlanta, Georgia. “Cutting it would be equivalent to suicide. It would be like being a zombie.”
Asha, who calls her dreadlocks “her baby”, credits them with helping her overcome cancer, two strokes and two heart-attacks. Her incredible hair has also brought her fans across the world and she has launched her own secret hair formula on the back of her success.
Her dreadlocks weigh in at around 39 lbs, causing a curvature to her spine. She began growing her hair long around 25 years ago. I wrote extensively about this super long Rapunzel-like hair before and it is worthy to review the subject of this article.
