About

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.

BlackHairInformation.com was initially created as a way to keep the founder’s most useful pieces of information that she had gathered about hair growth online in an organized way but it later morphed into a community website that both helps newbies into the hair growth world and entertains veterans during their hair growth journeys through to maintenance.

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 we can help anyone start retaining length and finally grow their hair long.

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

Sabrina PerkinsSabrina Perkins

Hello all, I'm Sabrina. I'm a freelance writer and a full-time blogger at my site, http://www.seriouslynatural.org/ where the focus is on Natural hair, beauty and style. I became natural 8 years ago at the tender age of 35 and love sharing my ups and downs as I master this thing called natural hair. Married, with two kids (one being a natural herself) gives me a different perspective on our hair and why I love being natural. I want healthy hair, long hair and sexy hair! I'm an older natural---that's right---I'm grown and sexy, and I have much to share. I love fashion too and recently opened a clothing shop for beautiful black women at www.seriouslynatural.spreadshirt.com

DanniDanni

Hi All! I am Danni and I am a staff writer here at BHI. I am a Graphic Design major and a long time resident of Washington DC. I have been on a healthy hair journey for 3 1/2 years. Within those years , I have went through a relaxed hair journey, a natural hair journey in which I big chopped twice(2nd big chop occurred in November 2013) texturized and now I have big chopped a THIRD TIME! I am 100% natural and here to stay. I am super excited to share information that I learn along the way to those who are just as into healthy hair care as I am and wish everyone best wishes on their healthy hair journey!

VictoriaVictoria

Hi! My name is Victoria Sallie and I'm a twenty something year old blogger & student living in NYC. I began my transitioning natural hair journey in January 2013, and big chopped in April 2014.

I decided to start writing because I wanted to document my hair journey, plus I realized that I couldn't find all the information I needed in ONE place on the internet. Deciding to return back to my natural hair was one of the best choices that I've ever made, and I'm glad to help anyone that has a question. Happy Hair Journey!

Marsha BuchananMarsha Buchanan

As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing.

After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

Hey there! My name is Christina J. I am a healthy hair advocate and have been natural since October 2012.

As I share, help, encourage, and support others in their healthy hair journey, I am continuing my own.

Safiya ElleSafiya Elle

Since 2008, I have been embarking on a journey to all things natural. I'm completely chemical-free (body and hair) and because of this, I was able to avoid the big chop, restore my natural curl patterns, grow my hair to tail bone length and clear my chronic acne. Today, I'm an organic vegan, natural health expert, DIY herbalist, DIY beauty, blogger and shop owner. I enjoy helping others with starting and continuing their journeys to natural hair and skin care, and hopefully an overall healthy lifestyle. On my blog, I share health and natural beauty tips, as well as delicious smoothie and meal recipes (I'm all about flava!) that help to promote healthy skin, hair and body from within. Why not maintain our beauty, as well as our youth? Health is the answer!

Tamara LylaTamara Lyla

Hi I'm Tamara, I'm a new writer for BlackHairInformation.com. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 2010 I finally became fed up with my dry, brittle, uneven relaxed hair so I decided to do something about it and armed with nothing but the internet and determination I set out on my own HHJ. The last four years have been a whirlwind experience for me and my hair, but now that I've learned a thing or two I'd love to pass on the information to ladies out there who are where I once was

My name is Tyne, I'm attending my 3rd year of high school at a performing and visual arts program. I'm a proud theatre major with a 4.2 GPA. My plan is to go to college for theatre as a minor and major in psychology as a career option. My days consist of early wake-ups and being late night work.
I have been natural all my life, and have had serious trials and tribulations with my hair, and I have reached a goal of mine to be able to write and help others with their hair as much as others have helped me!

Melinda McCain-MageeMelinda McCain-Magee

I have over twenty years’ experience as a hairdresser and educator. I have been natural most of my life and only relaxed my hair on three occasions, finding that natural hair was easier for me to personally maintain! I am currently licensed as a cosmetologist and certified professional life coach. I have degrees in human services and psychology and am currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work. As a fulltime stylist I found that 60% of my time with clients was devoted to counseling and motivating; so it seems my path has had divine intervention. I have been passionately, obsessed with healthy hair since childhood and dreamt of a world where everyone had a thriving mane. Many claimed I was blessed with growing hands but I know that with patience and dedication, everyone can reach their personal hair goals! I am currently focused on coaching but continue to consult those in need of direction with haircare. I can be reached at [email protected] or visit my website anewdaylifecoachcounselingservices.com!
