Woman’s Hair Almost Nine Feet Tall: Rapunzel, Move Over

By M Dee Dubroff     Oct 26, 2008 in Lifestyle
Read all about this South Florida woman who now has hair longer than she is tall! Her odd saga started twenty years and many brushes and combs ago.
Asha Mandela has submitted her hair, which measure 8 feet 9 inches long, to the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Longest Dreadlocks”. This marks the first entry in a new category. According to news sources, the 46 year-old woman needs one bottle of shampoo and one bottle of conditioner every time she washes her hair. In addition, sometimes it takes days to fully dry. In her own words:
“I used to wash it three times a week. Now I do it once a week. It's very tiring. Sometimes I don't have the energy."
Well, girl, how could you?
We don’t know how Ms. Mandela feels about Santa Claus, but maybe it’s time for someone to tell her that Rapunzel was, after all, a fairy tale.
