Isn’t it ironic how our women go to great lengths, spend fortunes on
hair and extensions (both natural and synthetic) just to have that
“great” look. 
It has been said Black peoples’ hair don’t usually grow as lengthy as those from
other races. However 50-year-old Asha Mandela currently holds the Guinness
World Record for the longest hair

(dreadlocks).

# She stopped cutting her hair in her 20s

 # The uncut locks is about 25 years old
# Her hair weighs about 39 pounds (17.7 kg)
# Though she underwent a bilateral mastectomy followed by chemotherapy in the late 1990s, miraculously, her hair didn’t fall out

#
In 2008, she was the first person to obtain the Guinness World Record
for longest dreadlocks, and a year later, she broke her own record with a
strand measuring 19 feet, 6 inches. 
In 2010, Guinness decided to retire
the category, since dreadlocks can be lengthened by twisting in
extensions, making Mandela the first and only record holder.
