"Hair-over-heels" - A Love Story

01 April 2016, 15:51

Nairobi – A beautiful love story over hair involves a Kenyan man, Emmanuel Chege marrying his love Asha “Rasta-Rapunzel” Mandela in the United States.

According to Citizen TV “Rasta-Rapunzel” got her name due to her 55-foot-long dreadlocks.

And to add to the love connection Chege is a hairstylist with equally long dreadlocks.

Speaking to the media “Rasta-Rapunzel” it has added to the spice in the bedroom and does not get in the way.

The two met over the internet where Chege saw photographs of “Rasta-Rapunzel” in hair websites only for her to arrive in Kenya eight months later where they fell ‘hair-over-heels’ for one another.

The couple both take two days to groom their lovely locks.

Chege says his plan is to become a male record holder for the longest locks.

They both agree that the growth of their hair is a spiritual journey.

“Rasta-Rapunzel” was actually told by her doctors that if she grows her hair any longer she could be paralysed.
