Kérastase Genesis Masque Reconstituant comes in an elegant jar similar to the brand’s signature packaging for all other masks. However, the color varies based on the range the mask belongs to. The Genesis range has a light, pink color, and is designed for hair prone to falling due to breakage. Its lid closes securely and is embossed with a refined silver lining.
This mask has a creamy, lightweight texture that spreads out easily and absorbs into the hair.
Kérastase has designated the same scent for all of the Genesis products. When you first smell it, you will instantly notice that it has a masculine whiff and an invigorating smell that lingers even after washing the hair. Indeed, it remained for two days and the more it faded the more pleasant it became. So, you don’t need to add any fragrance to your hair when using the products in this range.
Masque Reconstituant is designed for thick hair prone to falling due to breakage.
We tried out this mask after shampooing the hair with Genesis Nutri-Fortifiant. We applied a small amount of product with our fingertips and spread it out on the locks from mid-lengths to ends. Then, we twisted the locks a little and left the mask in for 5 minutes before rinsing it off with water. As Kérastase indicates, you should avoid applying it to the roots to avoid oiliness.
Masque Reconstituant gave noticeable results right after the first use, unlike many other masks that take a long time to take effect. Upon application, we noticed that our split-ends were repaired and moisturized, which reduced breakage greatly.
The mask also helped detangle the hair without any trouble, diminishing the amount of fallout after combing.
The condition of our hair kept improving every time we used this mask. After combing, the hair looked vibrant and glossy like never before.
After three weeks of use along with the shampoo, the mask fortified the hair more effectively. Hair fallout after combing decreased from 10 strands to not more than one or none at all.
For this reason, you can rely on this product as a nourishing mask and treatment for hair-fall due to breakage, only if used regularly.
This mask retails at 64.6 USD per 200 ml in Lebanon. It is one of the few masks specially designed to reduce hair-fall due to breakage. This property keeps it on demand, as other available hair masks are usually designed to only nourish or moisturize the hair. This product’s sole competitor would be the Inforcer Strengthening Masque from L’Oreal Professionel, which retails at 28.2 USD per 250 ml.
