Among products Kate's stylist turns to for her trademark locks are drugstore brands like L’Oréal’s $11 extra strong hairspray and Kiehl’s $16 Creme With Silk Groom.

Though the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are themselves relatively tight-lipped about their personal lives, the secret to getting Kate Middleton’s gorgeous, lustrous locks isn’t anymore.

Thanks to a since-deleted Instagram post this week from Kate’s personal hair stylist, we now know just how many products it takes to get those royal-ready locks, and it’s a lot. Thirteen brushes, six combs, three curling irons and two blow dryers, to be exact. That’s in addition to an array of styling products and finishing serums.

Among them are some surprisingly affordable drugstore brands like L’Oréal’s $11 extra strong hairspray. The product most likely responsible for taming Kate’s nonexistent flyaways is Kiehl’s $16 Creme With Silk Groom.

Though it sounds like an unusually large number of hair tool and products for one person, it’s not that unusual for a traveling stylist to overpack with multiple options. The news of Kate’s haircare routine comes just as it’s revealed that she donated 7 inches of her well-maintained locks to charity this week.
