Asha refuses to cut 'her baby' though saying it has helped her overcome cancer, two strokes and two heart-attacks. She also worries that someone with a 'hair fetish' will cut a chunk off when she is not looking. However, there is one area it has not affected - her love life - and three-times married Asha even claims it adds 'a bit of spice'. New unofficial measurement this week (Aug 10) puts one particular lock of hair at 55ft 7ins.
