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.

    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?

    • http://www.blackhairinformation.com/wp-comments-post.php monique

      I leave mine in for two months

  • 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)

  • Amber

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

    • Alma

      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.
