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 know for myself going natural ten years ago was about health ( less chemicals) and then eventually loving how I was created not if my hair was going to grow right.

    My hair won’t stay on my head when its relaxed, it loves to fall off onto the floor, table ,pillow, my shoulders and any where else that is not attached to my scalp. I will pass on relaxers but their hair is fabulous.

    My cousin has always been able to grow her relaxed hair to waist length so this is no surprise to me. It just didn’t work for me and in the four years I’ve been natural I’ve learned more about My hair and retained more length than in the previous 20. These are all beautiful but I’ll stick with my naps.
