The Woman With World’s Longest Dreadlocks

image

She is 47 and happily married to her
3rd husband. She has been keeping the
dreads for 25years now. Meanwhile,
doctors have advised her to cut her
hair for health reasons.

  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.
See more pictures after the cut.
