I couldn’t believe it when I first saw a photo of a beautiful woman with this AH-MAZING afro on a site for natural hair. I thought to myself, “OMGeee! Her hair is GORGEOUS!” Aevin Dugas, has been named in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the World’s Largest Afro! I must say…I rock my afro from time to time, but I have a long way to go before I ever catch up with her! I know people are itchin’ to ‘Touch Her Hair’!
Here’s the story from the Guinness Book of World Records:
Aevin Dugas a 36 year-old social worker from New Orleans, USA, is the proud owner of the largest natural afro in the world with a circumference measuring an incredible 4 ft. 4 in (1.32 m). The hairstyle that has taken over 12 years to grow can at times be problematic. “It’s always getting caught in trees, and one time I even slammed my hair in the car door! And I hate it when people touch it without asking my permission first!”, she admits. However Aevin has no regrets over her choice of hairstyle: As a woman you’re told that straight hair is beautiful hair. This is crazy. The afro is my natural hairstyle and there can’t be anything more beautiful than that”. Aevin trims her afro three times a year, and uses up to five conditioners at once when she washes it. “You want to know the best thing about my hair?” Aevin says with a smile: “It provides the perfect pillow. I sleep very well.” The hair is larger than a disco ball! Aevin’s hairstyle is so large she could fit the world’s shortest man inside!
Gotta LOVE it!!! Want to find out more about Aevin and her regimen? Check it out here!
