A woman credited with the status of having the world’s longest dreadlocks has reportedly found love with a hair stylist sporting far shorter but bigger dreadlocks.

The 50-year-old, from Florida, finally found her perfect match with new husband, Emmanuel Chege, who is reportedly a qualified hair stylist from Kenya.
Asha and Emmanuel had reportedly met online three years back, after the stylist had been drawn to her infamous dreadlocks on hair websites.
Emmanuel had decided to contact her following his discovery, and eight months later, upon Asha’s visit to Kenya, it had been love at first site.

Following a whirlwind romance, Asha and Emmanuel had gotten married 8 months later in America, with Asha entrusting the care of her dreadlocks solely to Emmanuel, almost two years later.
Emmanuel who has reportedly worked as a hair stylist for 15 years, spends most of his time grooming Asha’s dreadlocks weighing at three stone.
Although doctors have told Asha that her dreadlocks would paralyse her due to the weight which affects her back, the hair entrepreneur has been resilient.

Asha’s dreadlocks reportedly takes up to two days to be washed and dried, also requiring full time care which Emmanuel devotes countless hours to.
Emmanuel who has been inspired by Asha is also growing out his dreadlocks in hopes that he might hold the same record as Asha does but in the male category.

Speaking during an interview, Asha says:
It’s really added spice in the bedroom and it does not get in the way of anything at all.
There are times when my hair will be on the bed with us and we can use it for whatever or we put it on the floor if we want it out of the way.”
Asha adds:
My husband helps me with everything with my hair. I’m so spoilt since he’s been taking care of it and I’ve got totally lazy.
“He will massage my scalp, groom my hair or twist or wash it. He does a really good job of taking care of it so that’s a plus.”

The couple have also revealed their dream of having kids and the hope that they would continue their dreadlocks legacy.
“If we are blessed with children, no comb is going to go on their head.
“There will be locks straight from birth, however long that takes to come in.
“If we going to be lucky enough to be blessed with a child, it’s going to be a cute little Rasta baby.”
