DESIGN YOUR OWN ROCK & RUDDLE!

We are excited to announce the launch of our unique
“Design Your own Rock & Ruddle Hairbrush” service on our website.

Alexandra Rock and Jackie Ruddle created Rock & Ruddle in 2012 offering top quality natural bristle hairbrushes and combs in a myriad of gorgeous designs and colours.
This new idea for our unique new “Design Your Own” service resulted from the success of a super popular lockdown art competition held in April, when competition entrants created their own brush designs. Following the demand for combining personal creative input with the finest quality hairbrushes we are excited to now offer our customers the chance to create their own personally designed hairbrush.

You can find Rock & Ruddle’s irresistible range and our “Design Your Own” service here on our website.

Our Rock & Ruddle Vintage Collection

We were inspired to create our Vintage collection at Rock & Ruddle by the popularity of retro fashion and vintage clothing in London where we are based. It seems to us that people of all ages love these beautiful gentle patterns combined with animal and floral prints in soft colours. The designs give a timeless and feminine feel. The hairbrush and comb collection look beautiful on a dressing table and are perfect to take out and about in a handbag or beach bag. Choose from our four Vintage designs. The items in this collection make perfect gifts.

Rock & Ruddle Takes Flight

Rock & Ruddle has always strived to combine a top quality natural bristle hairbrush with really fun and beautiful art.

This Spring Jackie and Alexandra have been delighted to launch a really exciting range of hairbrushes which they have called “The Feathered Friends”. This quartet of hairbrushes feature gorgeous bird designs including flamingoes, lovebirds, peacocks and a duo of Jambu Fruit Doves “Making Up”.

Once again a collaboration with artist Clare Mackie has enabled Rock & Ruddle to offer these unique and gorgeous brushes to customers around the world.

Clare has incredible and enviable talent creating beautiful and whimsical characters and designs in all her work. The “Feathered Friends” collection has been inspired by Clare Mackie and Polly Pullar’s illustrated book “A Winged Collective.” This treasure of a book features descriptions of collective nouns for birds as well as Clare’s illustrations. We wholeheartedly agree with Mark Hedges in his foreword to the book: “Together Clare and Polly have cooked up a storm of hilarity and detail: not only are you going to have a book to treasure visually, but also one to learn from”. Jackie and Alexandra have learned that their brushes feature a flamboyance of flamingoes, a cleaving of lovebirds and an ostentation of peacocks! Wonderful!

Beautiful brushes and fascinating books….is there a collective noun for this?

Always wanted beautiful swishy hair that grows thick and plentiful? We all do!

Here are a few tips from Rock and Ruddle both from a nutritional and a lifestyle perspective to ensure that you enjoy shiny locks all year around.

Use a great hairbrush! A hairbrush that has natural bristles helps to condition your hair by pulling the sebum (natural oils made by your scalp) down each shaft of hair keeping it supple and shiny! A Rock & Ruddle hairbrush with natural bristle will keep your hair gorgeous and glossy whilst making you smile too with their beautiful designs.

Don’t wash you hair too often as you will wash away the natural oils and cause your hair to become dry.

Use good quality mild organic shampoos to cleanse your hair gently. My personal favourites are Neal’s Yard and Organic Surge Shampoos and Conditioners.

Eat well! For optimum condition your body and your hair need a great supply of nutrients just like your car needs good fuel to run well. Your hair is made of protein. Make sure there is enough quality protein in your diet and your hair will benefit greatly. Not enough protein and your hair risks to become dry and brittle and then break. Choose lean meats such as turkey and chicken, fish, dairy products and eggs. Good vegetarian sources include legumes and nuts.

Include lots of foods with good supplies of minerals important to hair growth. These include iron from red meat, chicken and fish which are easily absorbed as they exist in these foods in the most bio-available form. Vegetarians can find good iron sources in lentils and other green leafy vegetables and salads. Zinc and selenium are important too and can be found in beef, eggs, nuts. and oysters.

Include lots of food with good supplies of vitamins vital to hair growth. These include Vitamin A from orange and yellow coloured vegetables as well as from animal products such as liver. Vitamin C from fruit (berries are a wonderful source) and sweet potatoes and peppers as well. Vitamin E from nuts and seeds. Biotin found in whole grains, egg yolk, liver and yeast.

Essential Fatty Acids are vital fats for good health as well as for healthy hair. Our body can not make these so a good supply in our diets is very important. You will find omega 3 in oily fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel and also in plant sources such as nuts and seeds. Omega 6s are good too and are found in nuts and seeds aswell.

A good quality supplement can be helpful at times of stress and if your hair is looking out of condition. You can consult a nutritional therapist for advice.

A great tip from my hairdresser has been to rub some coconut oil into the ends of my hair when they are dry and then tie my hair up over night. Wash out in the morning and you will find the tips of your hair soft and conditioned.
