We get it, it’s hard not to feel upset or disgusted when your drain gets clogged with clumps of hair or when a handful of strands fall out from running your hands through your hair (even though it’s a normal occurrence).

The average person loses 50 to 100 hairs a day, but what happens when it becomes excessive? We may not know it, but some of our daily habits lead to hair breakage and hair fall, which in turn affects our confidence.

Read on to learn more about the causes of hair fall, beauty and lifestyle tips you should be following, and the best products to aid you in restoring your hair’s health.

Why is your hair falling out more than usual?

Before you dedicate your time and efforts to solving your hair fall problems, it’s always best to find out the real root cause.

More often than not, hair loss and excessive hair fall are indicators that something more serious is going on with your body. Your hair follicles are one of the third fastest to turn over cell lines so anything affecting your body will throw it out of balance and influence your hair’s growth phases and condition.

Hair fall may be triggered by:

  • Rough hair brushing and vigorous rubbing of the scalp that leads to hair breakage
  • Stress, physical trauma, and hormonal imbalances, which disrupt the hair’s natural growth cycle
  • Tight hairstyles that pull at the roots, which can lead to traction alopecia
  • Hair products with a high chemical presence and are harsh on the hair and scalp
  • Chemical hair treatments like bleaching and heat styling, including perming
  • Nutrient deficiencies from poor diets that cause thinning hair, bald patches, and weak hair strands
  • Genetic female pattern baldness, which can start any time after puberty or develop after going through menopause
  • Certain medications or medical conditions like fungal infections and thyroid disease

If you’ve also noticed hair fall in other areas of your body, like your lashes, eyebrows, limbs, underarms, and pubic area, it may be time to visit the doctor’s for a proper consultation.

In most cases, you’re doing everything right but still find yourself suffering from hair breakage and hair fall. Then, it’s probably time to take a closer look at the labels of your hair products.

The easiest and fastest way to tackle hair fall issues, a “home remedy” if you will, is to invest in the right products for your hair and scalp type.

You’re in luck because French luxury haircare brand Kérastase has unveiled the first-ever range to treat both kinds of hair fall; at the roots and from fibre breakage, for all women in all lifestyles and with all degrees of hair fall.

This fortifying haircare range helps to soothe the scalp and improve your hair’s resistance to reduce hair fall.

It’s also great at fighting stress and hormone factors that lead to hair fall, which over 50% of women go through or will experience.

Key ingredients that will make every strand of hair stronger

Completing the Kérastase Genesis repertoire are two shampoos, a conditioner, a hair mask, a scalp serum, and a heat protectant (basically a comprehensive range and every hair product you’ll need to treat hair breakage and recover from hair fall).

The Genesis products contain 1.5% Aminexil, which helps to anchor hair strands into the scalp while preventing our collagen from hardening around the follicles. This will secure the hair roots underneath your scalp and reinforce its barrier, leaving you with tresses that won’t budge and fall as much when combed through.

Another key ingredient included is Edelweiss stem cells which are capable of resisting even the most extreme conditions. It’s also a popular ingredient found in skincare products because of its antioxidant powers and collagen-preserving properties.

Kérastase Genesis products also feature Ginger Root which is known for its ability to protect against daily external aggressors and Caffeine which has stimulating properties to improve scalp micro-circulation.

7 ways to effectively prevent hair fall

It’s okay to wash your hair daily or frequently

One misconstrued scenario is that washing your hair daily will cause hair loss or make it prone to breakage. In fact, frequent washing can prevent excessive hair fall if you wash your locks accurately and use the right products.

With the hot and humid climate we reside in, it’s almost impossible to not wash our hair every day since it gets heavy and greasy from all the oil, dirt, and sweat buildup.

Made to reduce hair breakage and give you healthy locks, Kérastase has one anti-hair fall shampoo each for oily and dry scalp. The best part is that their products are highly concentrated, which means just a coin-sized amount goes a long way for your hair’s health!

The Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo for Oily Scalp is an ultra-delicate gel shampoo for fine and normal to oily hair. This silicone-free shampoo provides oil control and supports hair fall reduction by strengthening weakened strands.

Meanwhile, the Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo for Dry Scalp is meant for thick or dry hair. It works to gently cleanse the scalp and hair while providing intense nourishment for smooth and manageable tresses.

As a bonus, these Genesis shampoos have a bright, invigorating fragrance of bergamot and a hint of aromatic green that’s inspired by the energy flowing from modern colognes.

Kérastase Genesis Anti Hairfall Shampoo for Oily Scalp (250ml) and Genesis Anti Hairfall Shampoo for Dry Scalp (250ml) both retail for S$45 at Sephora, Lazada, and Kérastase salons. Locate your nearest Kérastase salon here.

No, conditioner won’t weigh down your strands or make hair fall conditions worse

No matter what your hair type is, or the state of your hair, it’s always best to condition them. After all, being in Singapore’s humid conditions will cause your hair cuticles to open up and lead to frizzy and brittle hair.

Well-moisturised hair is key to healthier strands that are not prone to breaking or falling, but if you’re afraid of weighing your hair down from product buildup, pick a lightweight conditioner like Kérastase’s Genesis Anti Hairfall Conditioner.

Featuring anti-breakage action and fibre fortification, this silicone-free and sulfate-free conditioner reinforces the hair fibre’s natural resistance to reduce the risk of hair fall. It also works to soften, detangle, strengthen, moisturise, and add shine to your hair.

Better yet, you won’t have to wait long for this conditioner to work its magic — just apply to shampooed, towel-dried hair and leave it on for two to three minutes before rinsing, which is a far cry from the 10 to 15 minutes waiting time for most products in the market.

Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner (200ml) retails for S$62 at Sephora, Lazada, and Kérastase salons. Locate your nearest Kérastase salon here.

Mind the water temperature and aftercare

When washing your hair, make sure to start by drenching your hair with warm water to open up your hair’s cuticles for better absorption. Use cold or lukewarm water for the rinse-off to seal the cuticles back up and lock in moisture.

After your shower, make it a habit to wrap your hair up with an old cotton tee or a microfiber towel. Since your strands are more vulnerable while wet, it’s important to be gentle and use materials that won’t cause unwanted friction to your hair.

If you’re detangling your hair while it’s wet, start at the bottom of your hair length and use a wide-toothed comb, especially if you have curly hair.

Give your hair a weekly “spa day” with nourishing hair masks

Using a conditioner daily can help strengthen your hair strands, but sometimes an extra boost is required. Here’s when you use hair masks to treat dry, weak, and frizzy tresses that tend to break and fall off easily.

Kérastase’s Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Masque is an intensely rich and creamy mask tailored for weakened hair. This hydrating and fortifying hair mask keeps the strands soft, smooth, and nourished.

It also features arginine, which helps to stimulate healthy hair growth by supporting a strong blood flow to the roots of your hair cells.

You will only need to leave the mask on for five minutes and can choose to use it in place of a conditioner instead, weekly or multiple times a week depending on your hair’s needs and thickness.

Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Masque (200ml) retails for S$81 at Sephora, Lazada, and Kérastase salons. Locate your nearest Kérastase salon here.

Be more gentle with your locks and switch to a boar bristle brush

One of the leading causes of hair fall is brushing your hair wrongly (yes, there is a right way to do this).

Be it excessive brushing, using the wrong type of brush, or yanking your hairbrush through wet hair, you’ll want to keep away from these bad brushing habits.

To prevent hair breakage and eventual hair fall, practice being less rough when brushing and taming your mane. For those with frizzy or damaged hair, it’s high time to make the switch to a good ol’ boar bristle brush.

Lauded for their shine-enhancing abilities, boar bristle brushes evenly distribute your scalp’s natural oil all over your hair to grant you shiny, lustrous, tangle-free, and well-conditioned hair.

Stick to a good and therapeutic nighttime haircare routine

kerastase genesis anti hairfall range

Just like how you’d use beauty products to promote a healthier skin barrier, there are haircare products to help keep your scalp in the best condition ever like the Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Scalp Serum.

For the uninitiated, better and more beautiful hair manifests when you have good scalp health and Kérastase’s jelly-like Genesis serum plays a huge role in improving hair resistance.

Enriched with a potent combination of Aminexil, Ginger Root, and Edelweiss Native Cells, it works by re-anchoring hair follicles more solidly into the scalp while forging an optimal environment for future hair growth.


Sort of like a topical vitamin for your hair, this iconic scalp serum is easy to incorporate into your nighttime regimen. After your skincare steps, apply the serum to target areas of your scalp where you noticed less density. Then, massage it into your scalp and leave it on overnight.

Bonus tip: Sleep with a silk pillowcase to protect your tresses and prevent frizz and breakage caused by friction. To enhance the therapeutic motions of a self-care routine, why not light up a scented candle while you’re at it or delve into a book before hitting the haystack?

Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Scalp Serum (90ml) retails for S$92 at Sephora, Lazada with a 30ml option available too for S$39, and Kérastase salons. Locate your nearest Kérastase salon here.

Always use heat protectants or hair oils when styling your tresses

kerastase genesis anti hairfall range

We know it may be difficult to resist, but it helps when you limit the use of heating tools that can severely damage your locks. At the same time, avoiding taut hairstyles like tight braids and high ponytails won’t pull on or add pressure to the hair roots, which can end up hurting your hair and scalp.

However, if you really have or want to style your tresses, it’s crucial to use oils or heat protectants that will serve as protective barriers against hair damage and breakage.

One of the best products for the job is Kérastase’s Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Heat Protectant, which seals split ends and offers 24-hour protection against frizz even in high humidity levels.

This lightweight and sulfate-free cream can be used on towel-dried hair before blow-drying and on dry hair after as a finishing touch to tame frizz and boost shine.

Kérastase Genesis Anti-Hair Fall Heat Protectant (150ml) retails for S$57 at Sephora, Lazada, and Kérastase salons. Locate your nearest Kérastase salon here.
