Beauty Wednesday: miracle cures and hair fit for a (future) Queen

Welcome to the brand spanking new Beauty Wednesday series! Every Wednesday, Chic & Cheerful will be featuring something hair and/or beauty related. This week, I've put together a little post on the best beauty stories from around the web today but if you have a how to you'd like to read or know of a brilliant product we should be talking about, drop me a line!

Some also promise healing, soothing and anti-ageing properties." In other words, probably the best thing you can ever buy for your face. Now where's my credit card?

Not a split end in sight!

While Kate leaves me somewhat disgruntled fashion (stop shopping in Zara, I want those dresses before your followers go crazy for them) and make up wise (far too much dear, you're only 30 after all), I am in complete envious of her gorgeous hair. But, according to her hairdresser James Pryce, her shiny tresses are completely achievable  - all you need is a good weekly conditioning mask, like Shu Uemura's sleek smoothing treatment (£32.75 for 200ml,
