When the Duchess of Cambridge turned 30, the Daily Mail uncovered the secret behind these sleek and shiny curls – "organic" hair dye.
Apparently, Kate regularly fills up her vegetable-based lowlights at Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa in Chelsea to keep this dreaded gray hair at bay!
While the dye Organic Color Systems can contain some certified organic ingredients, it is far from being synthetic-free and containing chemicals such as triethanolamine and pigments such as 4-amino-2-hydroxytoluene.
The truth is that if you don't choose henna, more "natural" dyes must contain plastics to achieve a level of performance – especially for dark hair that's more difficult to dye.
Whatever she uses, it's fair to say Kate is one of the great British beauties of the moment, and we wish her a happy return! (Sure, she reads this blog all the time …)
