There is a problem that is afflicting a lot of new naturals which may be affecting you too.

About Alma Ruddock


I’m Alma Ruddock, the founder and editor-in-chief of Blackhairinformation.com. I stumbled on a hair care forum back in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair, and quite possibly my life, forever! I immediately started to transition to natural hair and started BlackHairInformation.com as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to help others achieve their dreams too. My three passions are hair, art and entrepreneurship and I love to be able to bring my unique view on hair growth and successful hair journeys to our readers. I am an eternal optimist and workaholic. In addition to BHI I have founded quite a few other websites and businesses including Elongtress Hair Vitamins and Urban Gyal which all fall under the umbrella of my company Coils Media Ltd.

I have tried hair lotions,and kinky curls products but I stop,and just oil my hair with castor oil that seems to help my hair 4b/c type.

I did my big chop 8-6-14 before that I transition for 4 months but for the last couple of months my seems as if it’s not holding moisture and is very dry. I use the LOC method every night. I did switch over to the shea moisture collect because I’m trying to find a regiment for my hair . Now I just feel completely lost on what I’m doing. Please help!

Alma I thought the Roux hair products where for people who had low porosity stands???

Sammie
