Hair fall is an issue that plagues most of us with anything longer than a buzz cut on our heads.

Even when we keep up with trendy shorter styles like a bob or a pixie cut, it seems that our bedroom floors are still carpeted with short silky strands of hair that have somehow escaped our scalps.

And despite loading up on strengthening and nourishing serums, oils and treatments, sometimes it feels like no matter how well we try and look after our locks, we are destined to end up with a clump of hair blocking up the shower drain every time we lather up the shampoo.

Well now a new formula has hit shelves that promises to reduce hair fall by up to a massive 84 per cent.

And it sounds like it actually really works.

The new Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Fortifying Serum uses three powerhouse ingredients, Edelweiss Native Cells, Ginger Root & Aminexil, to target hair loss, adding strength and resilience to the scalp and hair shaft to reduce both hair falling from the roots and breakage of the strands.

Designed to be used once a day, the serum is supposed to massaged onto scalp and can be applied on wet or dry hair without leaving any greasy residue.

Along with the matching shampoo and conditioner, the fortifying serum is said to lead to 84 per cent less hair fall due to breakage, giving hair more fibre strength and resilience.

And the specially blended used nine fresh notes, including bergamot zest, tonka bean and vetiver to leave your locks smelling like you’ve invested in a high-end hair perfume.

A must try!’ exclaimed one fan. ‘I really do recommend this product to anyone who suffers hair fall.

‘It smells amazing and doesnt leave any residue. Well worth the money. I will be buying another few bottles for sure!’.

‘This product is 100% worth the price tag that comes with it as a little goes a long way,’ agreed another. ‘I suffer from really oily hair due to it being so thin and I wash to too often (guilty!) so I was quite apprehensive about trying something that could potentially make it greasier.

‘All I can say is if you’re hesitant about it because of that same reason, don’t be. You can use this on wet or dry hair and it works just the same and really reduces hair breakage I find.

‘Only been using for a couple of days and can already see the difference in the way my hair looks and feels. Definitely recommend for anyone who suffers from hair breakage or loses a lot of hair’.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
