Woman Reclaims Guinness World Record for Largest Afro Hair Style

Louisiana woman, Aevin Dugas, recaptured a Guinness World Record when her afro hair style

Aevin Dugas, a 47-year-old woman from Reserve, Louisiana, has regained the Guinness World Record for having the largest afro on a living female. Her hair was measured at 9.84 inches tall, 10.4 inches wide, and 5.41 feet in circumference. This was a significant improvement from her previous record of 4 feet and 4 inches in 2010.

Dugas’s record was broken in 2020 by Simone Williams, a New Yorker whose hair had a circumference of 4 feet, 10 inches. However, Dugas has now recaptured the title with her impressive afro. She has been growing her hair for 24 years, and she uses various hairstyles for her hair, but her afro is reserved for special occasions.

In an interview with Guinness World Records, Dugas revealed that she stopped using dangerous chemicals to permanently straighten her hair, which have been linked to cancer. She is pleased with her decision to go natural and believes it is safer for her health.

Dugas has received a mix of reactions to her afro. Some people admire it, while others stare or ask questions. She has learned to deal with people who attempt to touch her hair, and she gives them a little pop on the hand with a few words of choice.

The Louisiana woman has become a source of inspiration to many, particularly women of color, who have been encouraged to embrace their natural hair. Her achievement is a testament to the beauty and diversity of black hair and should be celebrated.
