The makers of a cult lash-boosting product loved by the Duchess of Sussex has branched into hair thickening products for the first time.
RevitaLash have sold 4.9 million eyelash conditioners since 2007 and list Meghan as a loyal fan according to a pre-royal interview.
They are now using their hit BioPeptin Complexâ formula to transform thinning hair, with their new range hitting UK shelves earlier this month.
Speaking about her love of the product in 2014 – two years before meeting Prince Harry – Meghan told Allure: ‘[I use] RevitaLash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be.’
Meghan has never indicated that she suffers from thinning hair but her former stylist Lydia F. Sellers recently revealed the royal uses volumising spray religiously.
The Duchess of Sussex (pictured in Belfast in March) previously confessed to being a fan of RevitaLash, who have just launched a hair thickening range in the UK for the first time
Beauty brand Revitalash has just brought out its first ever hair thickening range (pictured), after selling almost 5 million units of its lash-boosting conditioner worldwide since 2007
She also gets regular Brazilian-style blow-dries, a semi-permanent straightening treatment that uses a mix of keratin and formaldehyde to smoothe tresses and has been linked to hair loss.
Manufacturers at RevitaLash are now hoping to tap into the hair thickening market, tackling an issue suffered by the likes of model Abbey Clancy and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.
Their new range – comprising a shampoo, conditioner and volume enhancing foam – boasts a unique formula designed to optimise scalp health.
RevitaLash (revitalash.co.uk) claim the shampoo and conditioner’s cleansing and hydrating properties transform hair to feel fuller, look thicker and improve overall health of the strands.
Meanwhile the foam contains BioPeptin Complexâ, the same technology used in the its award-winning lash product.

The formula is proven to boost the vitality of hair and improve elasticity to help combat breakage.
It is designed to protect strands that have been compromised due to over-processing and chemical and environmental stress.
In a recent consumer study, 94 per cent of respondents experienced healthier, fuller-looking hair after just eight weeks.
The world famous eyelash conditioning formula is thought to have been used on some 1.9 billion eyelashes globally.
What is a Brazilian blow dry?
The Brazilian blowdry began in Brazil in 2005 and usually uses a solution containing formaldehyde to straighten hair.
The treatment involves washing the hair with a special shampoo that opens up the hair cuticles in preparation for the straightening solution which is applied, combed through, then left on the hair for 30 minutes.
Next, straighteners are applied to ‘lock-in’ the formula and set the blowdry. Combining heat and formaldehyde prevents hair from curling, creating a long-term straightening effect.
But when heated, formaldehyde emits a vapor which can cause symptoms including difficulty breathing and nosebleeds. Formaldehyde has also been linked to a raised risk of cancer.
There is additional concern that if formaldehyde comes into direct contact with the scalp it can penetrate the hair follicle and permanently damage cells responsible for hair growth.
The result would be that when hairs fall out, new ones will not grow in their place.
