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.

    Who is that. What is a rhoa. Huh? I guess it depends if i want a weave style for winter months and the how the hair holds up. But the amount of hate is crazy. Why not support a black company.

    Wow. How bout just dont buy it. Why so bitter, hateful & jealous??? I hope you dont get what you give when you are looking for support for something. Oh wait. You’re not doing a dadbum thing. Maybe yal the ones that need to “have several”. U dont owe Porsha support but the extra effort to discourage?? Umm yal got anything else to do?

    I love Porsha! I would support her! Cudos to you Porsha for finding a way to become the career woman you wanted to be! I wish her many blessings and happiness in all of her future endeavors 🙂

    Because I’m all about mine, it’s a beautiful thing to see a black woman achieve any kind of success. We deserve it. My only issue is that if you are not as fortunate to have the money to start a business, it tends to be a lot harder. Porsha happens to come from a family with finances and notability. I would like to see more “non-celebrity” woman have their turn at success. Us plain folks have great ideas too but we may not have the financial backing and resources like the more popular folks have. Anyway, many blessings to you Porsha on your business endeavors.

    Okay so I ordered on 1/20/14…received an order acknowledgement stating will provide tracking within 1-5 days. My CC was charged on 1/21/14..Nothing about status or shipping until 1/28/14..saying left Georgia via Fed ex GROUND estimated arrival 2/3/14. Website promises to have hair to you no later than 8 days after ordering. WELL now my hair appointment was set for 2/1/14 for a special occasion..hair will arrive 2/3/14. She needs to get her order processing worked out & she need to have hair available for shipping from her ONSITE local to cut down on the processing & shipping. When I use my regular hair source is in 5 days regular U.S. mail. I will review quality once I received. SO in case you want to try make sure to order 2-3 weeks prior ro your install as they use Pony Express time frame for delivery 🙁 !

      Okay so here it is 2/3/14 (14 days after ordering) and still NO HAIR from GoNaked hair. They SAY they sent Fed Ex ground on 1/28/14..per fed ex no delivery until 2/5/14. My hair appointment has come & gone. Last time I EVER order from this company low prices or not. I will go back to my original vendor who delivers hair 3-5 days after the order is placed and only charges $10.00 for shipping not $15.00 for a Pony Express delivery!

    I bought the hair because porsha likes quality so, the hair should b great. Her hair on the show is flawless so if I get what she has I’m great.

    No. I do not view Porsha as an intelligent woman. She has become involved in too many things to consider it real. Her main cause is making money not about health. She’s a joke to me.
