15 Excellent Black Hair Care Sites & Blogs!



Info [Begin Rant] I don’t generally like to complain. I once went to a restaurant and where in addition to our main course we asked for a side salad. Underneath one of the rocket leaves was what looked like a little worm. Rather than complain, I didn’t touch the salad but never went to that restaurant again.

Today however I feel compelled to mention the ridiculous stuff that goes on in some black owned websites. I don’t want to call out individual sites but you would imagine that with the fact that black people have a relatively more ‘challenged’ time getting ahead in the western world, that we would be supporting each other instead of having this current over competitive attitude.

What I found in my experience is an ignorance or complete disregard of other black owned websites by some of the larger ones. I’ve seen ludicrous situations where large hair care forums ban members from linking to other hair care websites, forums or blogs for any reason.

Now I am proud to have created Blackhairinformation.com and I certainly think that you will find all that you will ever need to grow your hair long right here. But am I naive enough to think that some of you who visit BHI regularly don’t also pop in to the forums for a visit or idle around the hair blogosphere? Nope.

I myself follow a few blogs (both natural and relaxed hair),  visit a few forums on occasion and find time to catch up on random celebrity stories. Just because I happen to be on BHM today reading about a new way of applying henna doesn’t mean that I don’t know that LHCF exists or that I will never visit them. We all have favorite websites that we go to more often than others which is entirely normal. However, in this age of sharing news stories with your whole facebook family in a few clicks, I don’t think it’s entirely appropriate that I can’t share a lovely post from one of my favorite bloggers with my forum family too because of anti-competition rules.

Far be it from me to suggest to anyone how to run their business but we are all presumably working towards the same end; To get the message about good hair & beauty practices to the millions of women of color around the world, aren’t we? [/End Of Rant]

About Alma


Hi! I'm Alma Ruddock, a full time blogger. I stumbled on a hair care forum in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair forever!. I 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 bring new information about hair on both this website and my personal blog.

    Good job Alma! I read a lot of those sites too. It’s about time someone called out LHFC on their silly rules. Half the ladies on there are just as, if not MORE active on bhm and other blogs! I’ve just discovered that curlynews one today. Good find!

    I love this post for its honesty. I too read all the relaxed blogs listed. It started with Ebony’s (longing4length) she introduced me to the others. They all have a wide range of information. I’ll forward the natural sites to my cousin who is thinking of doing a big chop in April. Thanks Again.

    I’m not sure what all of this is about: anti competition rules. Without the many websites there would be none. No one website meets all the needs of one person. Anyway, here is one of the websites I love: link to napturallycurly.com . She has a great forum and some helpful ladies who have been over there since the beginning of her forum. I’m a newbie myself to her forum, but not new to natural hair. One of the things I’ve realized in this journey is that it continues on and on. I’ve learned so many new techniques and revisited some of my products also. So I’m hoping that people will wake up and see the light: no one website has a monopoly on anything. No one forum person will go only to one forum. Women, and also women of color need to learn how to be more collaborative instead of competitive. What contest? There is none. There is plenty enough of new people coming to the web every day to meet all needs. Thank you for this post.

    I’m surprised you dont have my fave blog http://www.hairliciousinc.com on the list. I started using her last April when I first heard about this black hair forum and I’ve gotten great results. Shoulder length which I have had most of my life to BSL. Most importantly I have learnt health hair care practices that I pass on to all my girlfriends and my daughters to come :)

      It’s not a comprehensive list TC. My favorites change all the time! I thought her website was hairlista?

        Thanks for sharing your list. Always good to see ppl on their hair care journey. Hairlista is forum site and hairlicious is the blog for tips and updates. Check it out.
