Kate’s luscious locks have been envied for many years, ever since she perfected that gorgeous bouncy blow-dry. For years, Kate has turned to the Richard Ward salon in Chelsea for haircare, cuts, and maintenance.
When I was in England this summer, I happened upon the Richard Ward haircare line in Waitrose. I picked up a few products, lured by the promise of royal hair. Here are some of the products I tried:
Richard Ward Keratin Rehab: This deep conditioner has a lovely scent and creamy consistency. I used it about once a week as a reparative treatment. I could definitely feel a strong coating on my hair, although it did not weigh down my strands or look greasy. They simply seemed coated and protected. Definitely one of the better pharmacy hair treatments I’ve had! For £6, its a steal.
The Chelsea Collection Cleanse & Condition: I picked up this holistic, botanical 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner as a weekly clarifying treatment for my hair. I love this product – and also hated it. At our apartment, the poor water quality didn’t do much with the product, and I was always left with greasy, limp hair. However, I brought the shampoo traveling to two other homes and found that the result was wonderful – soft, silky hair. The lesson? Its a shot in the dark, but possibly worth it! Joys recently sold the product in the US for 12 (join the waiting list here!), and it is available in some Waitrose stores.
To be quite honest, Kate’s hair is probably the product of more than Waitrose-level haircare products. But for a little royal touch to your daily routine, Richard Ward’s haircare collection is a lovely choice!
