Hair fall and breakage are part of everyday life, yes stray hairs can clog up your shower drain, and yes, it means you have to vacuum every other day or your carpet turns into a hairy rug. But the fact is, hair falling out is totally normal. On average you lose around 50-100 strands a day and the thing is, when it comes to hair falling out there are so many potential triggers, which means it can be tricky to pinpoint the exact reason why your strands are breaking or falling out, and henceforth, how to remedy the situation.
Fortunately Kérastase has created Genesis to help address this frequent hair concern, taking the hard work out of treating your hair right. Here’s everything you need to know about how to help stop hair falling out due to breakage, with a targeted hair care range designed to meet your needs. Take action against hair-fall now!
Before talking about reducing hair fall, it is important to know that there are a number of likely causes for hair-fall, most commonly environmental factors, aggressive stressors and hormonal changes. Another common culprit? Using heat when styling and not protecting your hair from heat-related damage. Heat styling can damage and weaken the hair shaft, leading to an increased rate of breakage. This can result in hair breaking off in the middle, leading to weaker locks that are less resistant to external stressors. If you’re guilty of using heat without protection, now’s the time to update your hair care habits to minimise hair-fall and damage for good. Other ways you can help stop hair fall include eating a well-balanced diet. You should be consuming plenty of vitamins and nutrients, in order to give your hair (and body) the sustenance it needs to be healthy and strong.
Ok, so now you know what triggers the hair fall, here is how to deal with it.
Introducing Genesis, Kérastase’s first dual anti-fall action haircare range that offers a unique hair-fall solution, specifically designed for weakened hair, prone to falling. Genesis is formulated with key ingredients designed to help reduce hair-fall due to breakage. These ingredients are blended to give you luxurious textures and a rich lather designed to reduce hair fall due to breakage.
What’s the best way to use the Genesis range to reinforce my hair and help stop my hair fall?
Step 1: Choose the right shampoo
The ideal anti hair-fall routine starts in the shower. If you have normal to oily strands, opt for Kérastase Genesis Bain Hydra-Fortifiant, P1,750. This anti hair-fall fortifying shampoo gently removes sebum and pollution and provides anti-oiliness action too, to keep your hair looking and feeling fresher for longer. If you have thick or dry hair, then Kérastase Genesis Bain Nutri-Fortifiant, P1,750, is the perfect shampoo to kickstart your haircare routine. This fortifying shampoo provides intense nourishment, and detangles your locks without weighing them down. Whichever shampoo you use, ensure that you apply the formula to damp hair, massaging into your roots, lather, rinse and repeat.
Step 2: Condition with care
Keep up the care with conditioner. For fortifying care, try Kérastase Genesis Fondant Reinforcateur, P2,050. This anti hair-fall conditioner nourishes the fibre making it easier to detangle your locks (minimising breakage) and adding body. Alternatively, if you need to double up on the care, use Kérastase Genesis Masque Reconstituant, P2,750. This intense fortifying masque provides hydration and nourishment, while smoothing the fibre and fortifying the hair. Both the Kérastase Genesis masque and conditioner should be applied to shampooed, towel-dried hair. Leave in for 2-3 minutes before rinsing completely.
Step 3: Protect your hair from the heat
As heat damage is one of the leading causes of breakage resulting in hair falling out, it’s always a good idea to protect your hair before using heat. This is where Kérastase Genesis Thermique Defense, P1,900, comes in. This fortifying blow dry spray provides heat and anti-breakage protection up to 220°c, whilst at the same time hydrating and detangling the hair fibre. This makes it easier to style, while keeping your hair healthy. Apply on damp lengths before you blow dry, style as normal.
Step 4: Complementary treatment products
What’s also great about this range is that there are two intensive products that will help you combat hair-fall due to breakage and maximise beautiful hair. Kérastase Genesis Serum Fortifiant Anti-Chute, P2,950, is a daily anti hair-fall fortifying serum that is enriched with Edelweiss Native Cells, ginger root and Aminexil. The serum improves fibre resistance to help minimise hair fall and increase fibre strength.
If you’re experiencing intense periods of hair fall, your best bet would be to opt for Kérastase Genesis Ampoules Cure Fortifiante Anti-Chute, P4,450, Kérastase’s anti hair-fall intensive cure. Containing Kérastase’s unique precision blend of ingredients, the shots work over a six week period to help minimise the effects of hair-fall and maximise beautiful hair. Leave-in to work its magic.
