World's Longest Dreadlocks: Guinness World Record

SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

MEET hair fanatic Asha Mandela - whose 55ft locks are longer than a London BUS. But despite owning a world record, the 47-year-old wants to go BIGGER - even though doctors warn she could PARALYSE herself. Asha refuses to cut 'her baby' though - saying it has helped her overcome cancer, two strokes and two heart-attacks. Her hair weighs almost three stone - the weight of a reception-age child - and takes two days to wash and dry. She also worries that someone with a 'hair fetish' will cut a chunk off when she is not looking. However, there is one area it has not affected - her love life - and three-times married Asha even claims it adds 'a bit of spice'. Guinness gave Asha the title of world's longest dreadlocks in 2009 when they were 22ft long. But a new unofficial measurement this week (Aug 10) puts one particular lock of hair at 55ft 7ins.
