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.

    Most black women need to readjust their thinking, they lack the patience it requires to deal with their natural hair. Personally, I think that females who weren’t taught responsibility at a young age, are the ones who claim they cant “deal” with their natural hair because they don’t take personal responsibility. (My opinion)

    I’m in that phase right now. I haven’t had a perm in 5 months so I have a lot of new growth. Learning to manage it takes time and patience but I’m working it. I’m not ready to do the big chop so I do wear wigs often and it doesn’t help that I’m in the military so I really can not do many styles at this time, hence the constant wear of wigs. But I have read plenty of ways to keep my hair moisturized, conditioned, oiled, no heat ect. Once I get out I should be all natural and can experiment more with it.
