15 Ways To Get Longer Healthier Hair


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.

    Thanks for this, I had actually forgotten about my ceramide oils. I will go back to sealing with them during the week.

    Wow, so interesting I’m seeing this as this is the exact regimen I am using to grow out heat damage and color. I pre-poo with a ceramide based oil, shampoo then do a protein treatment (obviously followed by moisture), then protective style. I do this every week and I already noticed a reduction in breakage.
