BlackHairInformation.com is a teaching website that helps women of color (black, mixed race or latina) with kinky, curly or even relaxed hair types, gain long and healthy hair. We understand how difficult and frustrating it can be to have hair that remains the same length year after year having been there ourselves. However with the right information, tools and techniques to hand will help anyone start retaining length and finally grow their hair long.

Our motto here is “With Health Comes Length” and we truly believe it!
