KERASTASE LAUNCHES GENESIS, THE FIRST ANTI HAIR-FALL AND HAIR NOURISHMENT RITUAL

In a world in which hair routine was purely about hygiene, Kérastase invented care for hair in 1964. Since then, Kerastase has been offering the best of professional and luxury haircare, pioneering the 1st scalp care, the 1st hair mask and the 1st hair serum.

This 2020, Kerastase will launch Genesis, the first Anti Hair-Fall and Hair Nourishment Ritual that breaks the norms.

88% of women around the world claim to experience hair-fall, which particularly affects a growing part of young women (40% of women have hair-fall before 35 years old). Searches around hair-fall are booming with hair fall representing 50% of top beauty searches on Google & YouTube. In the Philippines, hair-fall garnered more searches than Dry Hair, Frizzy Hair or Damaged Hair in 2019.

Out of the 88% who experience hair-fall, only 10% treat it because clients are unsatisfied with the current offer: inconvenient, shameful, too masculine, too medical and very polarizing. It makes them choose between two solutions: to treat hair-fall from fiber breakage or to treat hair-fall from roots. Clients want a complete and encompassing answer that gives them the instant results from hair care with the efficacy of anti hair-fall.

This is where Genesis breaks the norms.

Genesis creates a new standard of feminine hair-fall care: empowering not shaming; supportive not belittling. It broke the norms to create a solution that is efficient and pleasurable – desirable packaging, delightful textures and addictive fragrance. This launch furthers Kerastase commitment to offer innovative products to tackle modern challenges with an edge – because women need efficient solutions, not judgements.

ANTI HAIR-FALL + HAIR NOURISHMENT RITUAL

Stronger hair roots. Stronger hair fibers.

84% less hair fall.

The first range to treat both kinds of hair-fall, from the roots and from fiber breakage, for all women, in all lifestyles, with all degrees of hair-fall. A collection of 9 products, backed by a panel of experts, supercharged with the most potent complex compounds, Genesis becomes a routine for all.

The Kerastase hairdressers are trained to advise and prescribe you retail and in-salon treatments like the Genesis Fusio-Dose Treatment for an instant hair boost to make hair fibers stronger, softer and shinier, making your fiber more resilient to damage and breakage by plumping the fiber.

YOUR AT-HOME RITUAL

A shampoo, conditioner, mask, leave-on, serum and ampoules give your hair and roots the daily fortifying and strengthening it needs to combat hair-fall.
