Kerastase Genesis is a new anti-hair fall range that combats both split ends and helps stop hair from falling out at the root. Healthy hair always starts with healthy scalp and great care for the ends of your hair that is subject to abuse from chemical services and styling.
Many women are ashamed to talk about their hair falling out with breakage, but 88% claim to experience it. The truth is there are a number of contributors specifically, stress, which right now during a global pandemic is rampant.
There are two areas to address when it comes to hair-fall:
- Weakened Root on the Scalp: Stress, hormones and diet contribute to stiffening of the hair follicle at the root, resulting in missing essential nutrients needed for optimum hair growth.
- Hair Breakage on the Lengths: Daily stress from brushing, heat, and pollution can result in weakened sensitized hair leading to breakage and split ends.
Choose the care routine that is best for you. Choose one shampoo: Bain Hydra-Fortifiant shampoo gently cleanses greasy, fine hair while Bain Nutri-Fortiant shampoo cleanses normal to dry hair. Depending on the level of condition you wish to achieve condition the ends with either Fondant Renforcateur conditioner or Masque Reconstituant.
Prime the ends with Defense Thermique, a lightweight spray heat protector to battle damage caused by heat. Easy to apply, de-tangles sensitized hair easily making snags easy to overcome.
The stars of the show are Serum Anti-Chute Fortifiant or for more intensive scalp nutrients opt for Ampoules Cure Anti-Chute Fortifiantes (a 6 week treatment used at the peak of intensive hair fall). Both serums address hair fall at the scalp level ensuring a strong hair fiber.
