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 AM DEAF I NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH MY HAIR BRAIDING AND I PAY FOR IT BRAIDING KINKY TWIST
    OK THANK YOU VERY MUCH SO BEST KINKY TWIST?

  2. Alma Ruddock Post author

    I dont actually know how much braids or kinky twists cost, prices vary depending on the stylist you ask. Please check with local hair salon. Good luck,

    how would you wash your hair weekly if braided and how long should you keep the braids to avoid manipulation. I have short natural hair and usually braid my hair keeping the braids for a month. is that too long?

  4. Alana

    i dont like wearing weaves or braids if i do put them in they last for only 1-2 weeks. so what protective styles can i use with my hair and how long will they last as my hair do not keep styles for long (1 week)

  5. Amber

    I have very thin/bald edges. What protective styles do you recommend?

    1. Alma Ruddock Post author

      Nothing braided if you have thinning edges I’m afraid. You should only do low manipulation styles like braid outs, twist outs and loose buns until you grow your edges back. Even after that any braided styles should not be used again because clearly your hair cannot take them.

    I had Lupus at one time and lost lots of hair on the crown of my head. I use to wear a wig but they seem to be taking my edges out. I have been putting my hair up and wearing a weave ponytail. What do you recommend.

  7. Patricia Gillard

    I love them too I just put in mine 2 days ago. I learned how to braid and twist after I went back natural 3 years ago took me over a year to learn tho lol

  8. Margaret Graham

    At least you learned. I can’t really braid. I tried Havana twist with Marley hair…not the greatest. But I’ll keep at it like you! Hopefully I’ll get it.

  9. Patricia Gillard

    Takes a lot of practice and I know I’m not perfect yet but it’ll save you money also. I really hope you get it I’m sure you will! And Marley was my fave type of twist until I discovers the kinky afro hair only thing is it doesn’t come long like the Marley hair and I had to double up to make it longer to cover my hair.

    I bought a huge Afro wig. Do you think I can do a two strain twist style with it or just cut it down.
