Did you know? Meghan Markle’s Hair Is Naturally Curly and Frizzy
She’s worn it straight for the past twenty years so some are surprised to learn that Meghan Markle’s hair is actually curly and highly frizz-prone.
Her natural curls are about a 4A, as best we can tell from these photos.
But We Always See Her In Smooth Styles
Throughout her career, Markle has worn strictly smooth styles ranging from light waves to very straight.
Keratin Treatments Are Her Go-To For Smoothing
Meghan Markle relies on keratin treatments to smooth out her hair, eliminate frizz, and strengthen against breakage.
When she first began straightening her hair, she experimented with relaxers and Japanese thermal reconditioning but owing to damage, she now uses only keratin treatments.
Seven Natural Hair Issues She Solves With Keratin Treatments
Unfortunately, early photos of her hair are very poor quality. Nonetheless, when side by side with today’s photos, Meghan Markle’s hair exhibits seven dramatic transformations resulting from the use of keratin treatments.
1. IT’S DEFRIZZED
She has no frizz, pouf, shrinkage, or reversion whatsoever — despite London’s notorious fog. Thanks, keratin!
Triangulation is a close cousin to frizz, when the hair poufs out along the bottom edges to form a triangular profile. Nothing suppresses that like a keratin treatment.
There’s a big difference between wearing braids because you feel like it (=fun) and wearing them to beat down on bossy hair (=not). A keratin treatment liberates your locks from bondage.
Keratin fills microscopic gaps in the cuticle, allowing light to bounce off curly or coarse hair and giving extra shine to hair that’s naturally matte.
Types 3 and 4 hair are highly prone to breakage. Keratin treatments create a protective coating that prevents breakage so the hair grows dramatically longer than before. We hear this from Uncurly clients again and again!
“Embrace your curls” isn’t everyone’s mantra. Many prefer it smoothed out some or all of the time, and that’s legit. Keratin causes the hair to air-dry into a looser-curled version of itself, it makes smoothing or straightening lightening-fast (half the normal time or less), with less heat. And because of keratin’s unmatched frizz control (no oil, gel, serum or mousse comes close), the hair won’t pouf, frizz, shrink, or revert.
7. GORGEOUS BODY
Keratin transforms “hyper” hair from a burden into an asset by making it easy to control. Not limp, flat, wet-dog hair but gorgeous, energetic, behaving body styled as big or small as you want. It’s life-changing to transition from problem hair to the best hair in the room!
Professional Keratin Treatments — At Home?
Unfortunately, salon keratin treatments are notoriously pricey, costing $175 – $400, plus tip. The good news is that finally, you don’t need the budget of a duchess to have these benefits yourself. Unlike weak, short-lived, low-performance DIY keratins that fail to fully smooth out the hair or prevent frizz, since 2013 Uncurly has pioneered an ultra-high performance at-home keratin treatment that outperforms any salon keratin but costs only about $15-25 per treatment for typical clients. Results last 3-6 months — longer with successive treatments.
Uncurly makes serious keratin for serious hair, with Classic and Plus formulas suitable for every ethnicity, climate, and curl pattern. If you’ve ever had a disappointing, weak, short-lived keratin treatment, successful results can still be yours.

There are no recent pictures on the internet of Meghan with her natural curly hair. It’s hard to compare a kid or a teenager with a grown woman. But I always think about Nicole Kidman. Whenever I see her with her natural curly hair (which is EXTREMELY curly(, I always wonder why she goes to the trouble of straightening it. I think that it’s a gorgeous look if styled properly, and Meghan would have access to the best of hair dressers to make her natural hair look wonderful.
You’re right about no pictures anywhere of the adult Meghan with curly hair. The childhood pictures are all we have to show her hair without keratin. However, she can still wear it curly with a keratin treatment. It will be a looser, more defined version of its natural self and it won’t frizz in humidity. Many of our clients wear their hair curly but want to lose the frizz, strengthen it against breakage for longer growth, loosen the curl, make it air-dry faster, and make it smooth, stretch, or straighten quickly whenever they choose.
You say curly hair is “a gorgeous look if styled properly,” but if you haven’t lived it, you may not know that an intense amount of work and product can go into that styling — as much or more than smoothing it out. Even then, if you lie down, get caught in wind or rain, wear a hat, pull a sweater over your head, etc., the style can be ruined and takes a lot of work to make look good again. Plus, some faces simply look better with smoothed out hair, just as some straight-haired people look better with curls and use tools or perms to make it happen. Ultimately, we need to respect each person’s right to pursue the look she chooses, even if we disagree.
Hi my hair is just wavy but very frizzy and dry with lots of triangulation which i really hate. Also i live in the UK. What would you recommend? Thanks
You will be fine using Uncurly Classic. It will eliminate the frizz and triangulation, as well as give your hair a very soft hand-feel and shine. We ship daily to the UK, and it’s typically a 5-6 day delivery.
I am white girl with Porta Rican hair living in Florida! Is there a treatment that will get rid of the frizz but not lose all the curl?
Thanks for the photo. For what you’d describe, we’d recommend Uncurly Classic.
Meghan is a 3C, not a 4A
Hey, you may be right, but her kindergarten-era photo looks a little 4a to us. Can’t be sure given the photo resolution. When she’s back from her honeymoon, we’ll ask for an official statement.
I agree. She’s between 3-b and 3c. If you see her baby pictures – the one her dad is holding her, you see her smoother curls. Without moisture 3c hair can be brittle giving a 4a feel and look. I worked in my Mom’s hair salon since age 12. My own hair is 3c and I. Some places on my head there is 3b like my sisters and Mom’s hair. Women of color (biracial) can make different textures on the heads. The edges and kitchen can often be more coils like 4a. My opinion.
I saw that and thought the same thing. She is definitely in the 3 range and probably suffers from some extreme shirnkage from time to time like we all do. But Meghan is not a 4.
Megan Markle is bi-racial but could this work on AA, 4A-4B hair and would I need to chop relaxed hair? Eight months into transitioning and I’m going crazy with the shrinkage.
Yes, Uncurly works equally well on hair of all ethnicities. No, you would not need to cut the relaxed hair. It would be restored to almost like-new in terms of strength and condition, but it would not return to its pre-relaxer curl pattern. However, you could easily blend the new, transitioned growth with the relaxed hair. If you ultimately decided to cut the relaxed parts, the new growth would at least appear longer than before Uncurly, so you wouldn’t have as much short-hair shock. XOXO
I recently had a keratin treatment that didn’t “take” and I’m wanting a stronger one. How long do I need to wait to do a keratin treatment at home?
You can do it immediately. Best wishes, and feel free to use our onsite Consultaion form if you have any other questions. https://uncurly.com/DIY-Brazilian-Keratin-Free-Consultation/
why you are acting like curly hair is ugly
Hold it! We’re absolutely NOT saying that curly hair is ugly. Each of the “problems” listed in this post is a valid concern regularly brought to us by people looking for solutions. They deserve to be taken seriously.
We’re here for the people who don’t like it when their hair frizzes or triangulates in humidity; not the ones who don’t mind. We’re here for the people who think that looser curls or straighter hair looks better with their facial features. People happy to wear their hair as-is, we’re happy for you.
Using keratin is no different from wearing makeup or getting highlights and manicures: it’s not a political statement but a personal preference about how we like to style ourselves. Meghan Markle uses keratin treatments BY HER OWN CHOICE for easy styling and to prevent frizz and shrinkage. Does anyone think it’s not her right to make that decision?
Uncurly is entirely focused on providing powerful, long lasting keratin treatments at home because DIY keratins are notoriously weak and short-lived.
Thanks for this. Women dye their hair because it’s gray or they think another color looks better but then they try to guilt me to “Embrace Your Curls”. Keratin treatments ARE how I embrace my curls. My hair looks/acts great for the first time in my life.
I agree! I choose to erase rather than embrace. Not to please anyone but myself! My hair is similar to Meghan’s and it was a daily drama most of my life. It was dry. It looked unhealthy. Going swimming was a nightmare. I LOVE now having smooth, shiny, healthy looking hair. Most of all it looks great, even when I wake up each morning.
