This is the hair product Duchess Kate uses – and it costs less than £12

Her hairdresser has spilled his secrets

As well as her impeccable fashion style, the Duchess of Cambridge has long been admired for her glossy, bouncy chestnut curls too. The brunette has kept a similar style throughout her time in the public eye – after all, if it's not broken then why fix it – and is never pictured with a hair out of place. However, we've always been in the dark about the products she uses on it – until now. Because her hair stylist James Pryce, who works at West London salon Larry King, has revealed the product he uses to keep her locks smooth and shiny. And the best bit? It retails in the UK for just £12.

The bargain product helps Kate look perfectly groomed

The hair expert told Cosmopolitan he uses Redken's Curvaceous Full Curl Cream Serum on the 36-year-old's hair. The accessible high street product is designed to keep curls in shape while fighting frizz and humidity at the same time, and you can buy it for yourself at LookFantastic.com.

He revealed that the best way to apply it is to add a little bit to towel-dried hair while it is still damp, before blow drying. He runs the product throughout Kate's hair so that it covers it without becoming greasy and weighed-down, then dries her locks using a deffuser for extra volume and bounce.

This preparation is clearly working, as Kate looked stunning while taking part in a series of engagements while on the four-day tour of Norway and Sweden alongside husband Prince William. Her looks included a selection of chic coats and a stunning dusky pink Alexander McQueen gown, which HELLO! readers picked as their favourite outfit.
