Celebrity hairstylist Trudy Hayes shares how to tackle the most common hair problems

From dry tresses to breakages and frizz, Trudy has simple solutions to tackle the hair issues that affect so many of us.

Everyday influences such as stress, hormonal changes due to pregnancy or menopause, diet and styling can all affect our hair, making it dry, brittle, damaged, frizzy or just generally lacklustre. 

It can be hard to know where to start, but hairstylist Trudy Hayes has plenty of experience in working with all kinds of hair, to bring it back to its best. She has even developed Raven Haircare to help tackle these hair issues.

Their standout product is without a doubt The Hair Tonic. A protein-based formula designed to help rebuild broken, brittle or damaged hair, it contains biotin to encourage growth and keratin to help strengthen and condition hair. It also smooths hair, reducing frizz.

The Hair Tonic, €20

Simply apply to wet hair and style as normal, and it will gradually help improve your hair’s condition, making hair stronger. 

Trudy also recommends several other steps to incorporate into your routine for strong, healthy hair. A bamboo brush is not only kinder to the environment than a plastic one, its wooden pins help massage and stimulate blood flow to the scalp, while also reducing static and friction on the hair while detangling. 

Travel Bamboo Hair Brush, €15

Raven Haircare’s Soft Bamboo Jersey Plopping Towel is also ideal for those with delicate, frizzy or damaged hair. Its super-soft fabric is gentle on hair, as well as being incredibly absorbent, and also makes a great plopping towel for curly hair.

And for perfecting your look on the go, the Raven Hair Stick is a clever product that smooths flyaways around the hairline, making buns and ponytails look sleek and polished. Not only does it come in a mascara-like tube that’s easy to throw in your handbag, it also has ingredients to protect and repair hair, including camellia, jojoba and evening primrose. 

Raven Hair Stick, €12
