These Are The Hair Products Behind Kate Middleton’s Luxurious Locks

A lineup fit for royalty

As they do most things, the women in the royal family keep their beauty secrets extremely close to their chests. Sightings of Kate Middleton’s skincare stash or haircare heroes are about as rare as one of her in a tiara before 6pm.

Occasionally, however, we are treated to a glimpse at the products she uses to keep her look as chic, professional and polished as it always is. And while her complexion is no doubt perennially radiant and her makeup constantly flawless, it’s her bouncy blowout that we simply must know all the details around.

So, in the name of good hair days every single day, we’re rounding up the hair products Kate Middleton (and her trusted royal hair stylists) rely on to keep her mane at its very silkiest, swishiest and shiniest…

Tangle Angel 2.0 Soft Touch Brush, $31.95 at mooiisydney.com

Designed by Middleton’s go-to stylist Richard Ward, this brush’s design may not be particularly sleek (it’s a tad on the ostentatious side), but your hair will be if you incorporate it into your everyday routine. Its anti-static properties work to prevent flyaways and seal strands, leaving them with Duchess-esque levels of smoothness.

L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Normal Strength Hairspray, $10.99 at priceline.com.au

Ever noticed how her waves don’t seem to drop like those of us mere mortals? The long-lasting hold is a result of this cult-classic affordable hairspray – it delivers a fine mist that doesn’t weigh hair down or leave a tacky finish.

Kérastase Bain Oleo Relax Shampoo, $42 at adorebeauty.com.au

Middleton and sister-in-law Meghan Markle don’t solely share a face oil in common; they’re also both said to be fans of Kérastase shampoos and masks, often stocking their shower shelves with the brand’s hydrating, nourishing and strengthening formulas.

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender, $38 at adorebeauty.com.au

r

What we call ‘dry shampoo’, Middleton calls ‘blow dry extender’; classy, right? As a mum of 3 and one of the busiest members of the royal family, it’s no surprise that even she needs a spritz of root refresher every so often to extend her styles and absorb excess oil.

Kiehl’s Crème with Silk Groom, $46 at selfridges.com

k

While this royal favourite may have been discontinued here in Australia, it’s still (fittingly) available via the British market. Formulated with silk powders, wheat proteins and jojoba oil, it’s able to strengthen and smooth tresses while coating them with non-greasy gloss.
