There’s one thing that springs to mind when we think of Kate Middleton: her insanely bouncy blowout. Her signature locks will go down in history as some of the silkiest on record. We’ve been tirelessly attempting to achieve the same shine and volume since she started dating Prince William.
So, it was music to our ears when we found out that the Duchess of Cambridge uses a $26 hair product from one of our favorite beauty brands to smooth out frizz and flyaways. It hydrates hair, makes it more workable for optimum styling, and leaves it feeling smoother than ever. Interested?
The product in question is Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom—a non-greasy styling cream recommended for frizzy, dry, or damaged hair that helps to condition and soften.
Ahead of the royal visit to Norway and Sweden back in 2018, Kate Middleton’s hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, shared a photo of the countless brushes, tools and cans of hair spray she was taking with her on the tour and this bad boy made the cut.
Best applied to damp hair after showering (you should rub a small amount of the product into your hands before gently working through the ends of your hair), the effective formula adds shine and makes hairstyling easier. It leaves hair smooth, hydrated, and conditioned—no matter your hair’s texture.
There are three main ingredients that work to achieve the above: hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein, and jojoba oil. The first is a protein of vegetable origin, produced by the enzymatic hydrolysis of soya flour. It’s often used in skin-care products to smooth pores and minimize the appearance of roughness and wrinkles. It has a similar, smoothing effect on hair. The hydrolyzed wheat protein, also known as phyto peptides, is an ingredient that helps to condition and moisturize the hair. Lastly, jojoba oil is known for its nurturing and softening properties.
For best results, Kiehl’s recommends using the Creme with Silk Groom alongside its Amino Acid Shampoo–one of the best shampoos we’ve tried—and the Amino Acid Conditioner. Both products contain a beautiful blend of coconut oil, jojoba oil, and amino acids to strengthen hair and leave it looking glossier. Sold? Same.
Consider your hair royally silky.
