As Meghan Markle steps out with noticeably fuller hair, celebrity stylist claims volumising and thickening sprays have given her ‘bounce and life back’ post-pregnancy
- Duchess of Sussex’s locks are longer and more voluminous than previously
- Hair stylist James Johnson says ‘having a baby can take a massive toll on the hair’
- He suggests mother-of-one, 38, could also be using clip ins to make hair thicker
Meghan Markle’s hair ‘looks longer and more voluminous’ post-pregnancy which could be the result of thickening sprays, a celebrity hair stylist has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, has sported increasingly glossy locks since the birth of her son Archie, four months, on May 6 – and she even showed off that new shine as she stepped out in Johannesburg during the royal South Africa tour today.
Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, James Johnson noted: ‘Having a baby can take a massive toll on the hair, breakage, and even sometimes hair loss as the hair cycle stops during pregnancy and carries on shortly after giving birth,’ explained James.
‘Looking after your locks and getting that shine back can take a huge amount of after care.’
According to celebrity hair stylist James Johnson, the Duchess of Sussex could have used thickening sprays to give her hair extra volume as she stepped out in Johannesburg today

On June 29, 2019, the Duchess of Sussex attended a baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees at London Stadium – and her hair didn’t look quite as full
The Duchess debuted her noticeably shinier and fuller hair do as she visited Action Aid to take part in a discussion about violence today.
The appearance of her hair provides a stark contrast to when she was photographed watching a game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees at London Stadium on June 29 – shortly after the birth of Archie.
And also on July 10, when she attended The King Power Royal Charity Polo Day at Billingbear Polo Club in Wokingham – where it doesn’t appear as glossy.
Hair stylist James has claimed that volumising and thickening sprays could be the secret behind how the former Suits actress got that ‘bounce and life back’ in her hair post-pregnancy.
‘Using semi permanent glosses can be a way of getting that healthy glow back into the hair,’ he said. ‘However, for new mothers who can’t access the salon, there are plenty of products on the market which can deliver the same red carpet results.’

And according to the expert, the mother-of-one appears to be following the new ‘glass hair’ trend – made popular by celebrities including Kim Kardashian – who want that maximum shine instantly.
‘ColorWow Extra Shine Spray is a brand new product ideal for replicated that shine seen here in Meghan and on celebrities on the red carpet,’ he said. ‘It’s a quick finishing they spray that can be coated after styling.’
‘And let’s not forget too, summer is over. It’s all about the warmer, glossier tones, which Meghan pulls of very well!’
Alternatively, he suggested extensions may also provide an explanation to the extra weight and thickness to Meghan’s hair.
‘Perhaps clip ins have been used to make the hair style thicker,’ explained James. ‘Having perhaps lost some hair since birth, extra pieces may have been used to compromise this.’
