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.
From Huffington Post:
Lots of women with natural hair lament the upkeep involved to keep their hair looking fly. But the logistics of their haircare ain’t got nothing on Aevin Dugas.
Dugas’ afro was measured by Guinness as an astonishing 4 feet, 4 inches around — larger than lots of children in grade school — which ranks as the biggest afro in the world, according to the folks at Guinness World Records.
The downside? Dugas can’t drive when her afro’s blown and picked out. “If it’s as big as it’s gotten, I can’t see,” Dugas told The Huffington Post. “I have no peripheral [vision]. I can’t react quickly to anything.” Once when she was closing her car door, she slammed it shut on her voluminous hair. “I’ve learned my lesson.”
