Yes, it appears that Kate’s love of a glass of red could actually be contributing to her lustrous locks, and it could do the same for you!

Red wine contains a component called Resveratrol, which has been noted to help prevent hair loss, meaning a thicker, fuller head of hair like Kate’s could be a glass of vino away.

Celebrity hairstylist John Blaine also promotes the benefits of red wine for your hair, as he puts it in his hair care products! The red wine extract in his products contain polyphenols, which strengthen, detoxify and repair damaged hair. It also removes any brassy tones in your ‘do, and will leave your locks feeling super-soft.

So next time you’re asked when out if you would prefer red or white wine, just think, what would Kate do?
