A Florida woman is trying to have her Rapunzel-like dreadlocks verified by Guinness World Records as the longest dreads on the planet. Asha Mandela, 46, has been growing her dreads for 20 years and her longest lock measures 8 feet, 9 inches. Mandela says she cut off all her hair and began growing her dreads when she was living in New York two decades ago, and over the years she became too attached to the style to get a hair cut. "As much as I love it, I get frustrated with it," she said. "But then I realize I'd feel naked without it." [UPI]
