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 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 so much for this. my twist outs last for nearly a week when i pineapple my hair as compared to 1 day when i don’t so it definitely makes a difference. You also end up with stretched hair which is an added bonus!

    I have a question. My hair is pretty short (neck length) and I love doing twist outs, but pineappling usually results in most of my curls being smoothed out (if using a hairband), with only the ends still maintaining their curl. Leaving it out and using a scarf results in flattened, undefined curls the next morning. Any tips?

      Hi Racquel. My daughter’s hair is pretty short, about APL when stretched. I cannot stress to you how loose the hairband has to be in order not to smooth out your curls, I tend to use an old hairband where the elastic has all but gone. I find that pineappling will stretch the curls at the back and sides a little but the top remains very curly. If you are wearing your hair down anyway, it shouldn’t look much different from day to day with pineapple-ing.
