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 did this bout two weeks ago found her on YouTube and it came out nice. I just used the little hair products I had on hand. It had shine and body. You don’t have to use expensive products to get the look. Expensive products may make it last longer but mines lasted just under a week.

    I have a different natural curl pattern but we have the same hair length . That’s cute but I’ll stick with my protective style cornrows . I want to rock long hair low manipulation styles . So I’ll wait a few years and keep it in cornrows . Cute style though .
