Asha calls herself the "black Repunzel" and continues to grow her hair even longer.

What is the status of your addiction today?

I see no reason to cut my hair so there is nothing to quit.

How has your life changed since being on the show?

My life has changed tremendously since the show. Everyone wants to know what product I am using and how they can grow long hair so I am more determined now to find the ancient secrets to grow my hair even longer.

Was the doctor beneficial in helping you cope with your addiction?

Being on the show was a brilliant experience. I absolutely enjoyed it. Getting a doctors opinion/evaluation on the show was great, but since I don't want to cut my hair, it did not make any real difference to me in that area. However, having the Doctor take a look at my spine and neck via x-ray did help me understand that the weight of my hair has somewhat contributed to the extreme curvature of my spine and poor posture.

How did being on the show and going to doctor help you in terms of dealing with your addiction?

I don't want to cut my hair so there is nothing to treat.

Do you have any words of advice for other people dealing with addictions?

I would say to anyone one out there struggling with any type of addictions, you may or may not believe you have an addiction however it does not hurt to seek medical advice to determine if there is one or not. Counseling is great and it helps.
