Meghan Markle Must Change Her Hairstyle Now That She Is Pregnant

Margaret Minnicks is an online writer who writes about the royal family.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married only for a short time. That doesn't mean the world is not predicting when they will have children. They have not kept it a secret that they want to start a family soon.

There will be rumors that the Duchess of Sussex is pregnant before she really is. She is not allowed to make an announcement until after three months. However, there is one telltale sign that she is expecting a royal baby before an official announcement is made or before a baby bump is seen.

Meghan Markle's Hair

Meghan's hair always looks gorgeous. It is usually glossy, shiny and straight. The former Suits actress admitted in a 2011 interview that she uses semi-permanent straightening treatments for her hair.

Actually, she said that because her mother is black and her father is Dutch and Irish. Therefore, her hair texture is very curly and frizzy. She added that she has been getting Brazilian blowouts for a long time, but she will have to stop using them when she gets pregnant. Then her hair will look different. The public will probably see her more with her hair up than flowing as in the past.

Brazilian Blowouts

Brazilian hair straightening treatments can be performed on all types of hair. Its main purpose is to eliminate hair frizz and straighten curls and waves.

Etiquette coach Myka Meier told the Sun that when Meghan stops getting Brazilian blowouts it could be a very good indication that she is pregnant. The chemicals in those treatments are dangerous for a woman to use when she is expecting and should be avoided, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

One of the requirements that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stipulated when they were looking for a surrogate for their third child was that the woman must not use those chemicals in her hair.

Meier isn't sure about the chemicals Meghan uses, but she thinks the Duchess of Sussex uses a keratin or a Brazilian treatment to straighten it. Whatever she uses, she will have to stop using the products. That means Meghan will more than likely begin to wear her hair up in a bun most of the time instead of long and loose as she often wears it. She appears to like the messy bun anyway.

Dr. Sarah Jarvis, Clinical Director of, explained that pregnant women should not use dangerous chemicals on their hair. Nothing is taken internally, but small amounts can be absorbed through the scalp. Besides, fumes can be inhaled. Other doctors also agree that keratin hair treatments should be avoided during pregnancy.

Dr. Jarvis explained that keratin treatments contain formaldehyde that could cause birth defects if much of it enters the body.

Brazilian blowouts usually last about 10-12 weeks and can cost from $150 to $500 for each treatment.

You will have a very good clue that Meghan is pregnant when you see a change in her hairstyle.

Update About Pregnancy

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex just completed a 16-day royal tour to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. On the first day of the tour when they arrived in Australia, Kensington Palace made an official announcement that Meghan is in her second trimester of pregnancy. She and Prince Harry will become first-time parents in the Spring of 2019.

The 37-year-old mother to be did wear her hair up in a messy bun quite a number of times while on the royal tour.

      Brad, thank you for your comments about the royals. I must admit I like reading and writing about them. I think my fascination lies in the fact that years ago I could only read about the royals in history books and most of them were dead.

      Today, I can see what is going on in the royal family as events happen. Each day I find something interesting to write about them. I believe if it is interesting to me, it will also be interesting to others.

      To answer your questions, I think Princess Diana was one of a kind, and no one can be exactly like she was.

      I have never understood this fascination with Royalty, and especially during the Feudal System where everyone outside of royalty were slaves to royalty.

      Today, in England we are paying homage to the Royalty, Why?

      Here is a quote from Princess Diana?

      "Princess Diana, who married Queen Elizabeth II's son, Prince Charles, in 1981, and became the Princess of Wales when she was 20 years old, famously said that, "Being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be."

      My wife is glued to the TV series "The Crown".

      So,when Meghan has the baby, it is just another mouth for the people of England to feed. imho

      Do you really think she is anything like Princess Diana?

      Louise, people are already waiting for them to have a baby. They do want to start a family soon, but they have an upcoming tour first.

      They certainly will make lovely parents. I've always liked Prince Harry. I had never heard of Meghan Markle before she married him, but I like her. She's a lovely young lady.
