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.

    What is that donut made of BlackHairInformation.com? I saw one in store but it looked dangerous to my hair.

    You can just make one from a black sock. Just cut the toe part off and roll it up like a donut. I wear one all the time since I am in the army.

    The mesh ones are better for your hair than the sponge ones. Up close it looks like a very coarse ballerina tutu fabric. I sometimes take a little braid hair and wrap around mine before I put it in, especially when I am growing my hair out from a cut and it is long enough but I just want to be sure the donut is covered. I also only use 3 hairpins, because I wrap my bun in an invisible hairnet (wind the excess around the bun) before I put the pins in. Makes it less heavy but it still stays put. As another lady said, a sock is great too, and so is a pair of pantyhose (you need both legs rolled to make it big enough). For those with a unique haircolor, you can even crochet one to match-find a nice soft yarn and a pattern and go at it!
