Kerastase Genesis range has been developed to address two of the causes of hair-fall; 1. Hair falling due to stress on the hair fibre and scalp and 2. Hair falling from the mid-lengths due to breakage. When it comes to hair fall from the root the magic ingredient Aminexil works by helping to anchor the hair to the root and making it more resilient to tension.
The perfect product for fast acting results, the Ampoules Cure works best when you notice a sudden increase in hair fall. An innovative blend of ingredients work to reduce the appearance of falling hair, creating the illusion of fullness and thickness. Use once daily, in the morning or before going to bed, during a 6-week period. Break off the top of the Ampoule to reveal the silicone applicator. Apply to the scalp, section by section, simultaneously pressing the button at the bottom of the Ampoule. Do not rinse.
The capsules utilise the benefits of the Genesis system, a precise cocktail of ingredients renowned for replenishing coarse, weakened hair. The blend is infused with powerful Edelweiss flower extract, renowned for emphasising the look of shinier, healthier hair. Combined with stimulating Ginger Root and invigorating Aminexil, the clever concoction helps to add vibrancy and volume. Available in Headmasters salons, 10 day intensive treatment £49 (use for up to 6 weeks).
A powerhouse product, the Kérastase Genesis Serum strengthens and defends against hair prone to falling on a regular basis. To be used daily, this nourishing formula works to increase resilience in weakened, lack-lustre strands, giving the illusion of a fuller, healthy-looking head of hair.

The expert fusion of Edelweiss Native Cells, Ginger Root and Aminexil combine to fight dryness and improves fibre resistance, in turn contributing to the reduction of hair fall.
