Vegamour – Clean Vegan and Plant-based Hair and Scalp Wellness
Veganism is more than just the food you eat.
It’s a lifestyle.
Therefore, the hair products you use and the brands you associate with should also reflect your true values, that is excluding all types of animal exploitation as much as possible.
Truth is, although you may see the term “cruelty-free” thrown around a lot, it doesn’t necessarily mean the products don’t contain animal-derived ingredients.
Did you know?
Ingredients like keratin, collagen, and glycerin are animal derivatives!
So what does vegan haircare really mean?
Vegan haircare means using hair products that are:
- Free from animal byproducts
- Formulated with plant-based ingredients only
This is where Vegamour differs from the rest. And it’s why Nicole Kidman invested in the brand for its clean, ethical, and sustainable approach to hair cosmetics.
Proudly boasting a Leaping Bunny-Certified status, Vegamour harnesses the science of vegan bioactive ingredients extracted from plants to formulate hair wellness products that are scientifically-proven to rebalance and boost the entire follicular ecosystem.
After seeing their products fly out the shelves of Sephora and the brand creating such a buzz on social media with #vegamourChallenge, I had to try them out to see what they were all about.
And so I did.
I bought 3 of Vegamour’s bestselling products and used them consistently for 3 months…
My Vegamour Review
I could tell this brand was different from the very moment I received my first order. Not only was it aesthetically pleasing, but it also gave off luxurious and clean beauty vibes.
The thoughtfulness that went into the packaging reflected the care and passion put into every product. It wasn’t your typical Amazon shampoo wrapped in plastic bubble wrap leaking all over the place!
Additionally, I appreciated how Vegamour took the time to include information cards in each product, emphasizing its core values of transparency, clean vegan botanical ingredients, and clinically-proven results.
After using the products for 3 months, I had people asking me every time:
The results were so impressive that I decided to splash out on their eyelashes and brow serums as well.
Before I tell you about the products, here’s a quick introduction to Vegamour.
Vegamour – The Holistic Hair Wellness Brand
Vegamour calls itself a hair wellness brand. Not a haircare brand.
And there’s a big difference.
Rather than focusing on short-term isolated fixes that can lead to long-term problems, hair wellness is a 360 holistic approach to taking care of your hair inside and out.
It’s about nurturing the follicular ecosystem for strong,
healthy hair growth, and optimal function.
“When it comes to healthy hair, we should consider the body’s entire ecosystem. At VEGAMOUR, we’ve developed a 360° approach to hair health that seeks to address these issues and support a balanced physiological ecosystem conducive to healthy, beautiful hair.” Daniel Hodgdon
CEO of Vegamour - via Forbes
It all started from the organic farms of Vermont, New England, where Dan Hodgdon, the founder, spent his summers working for his uncle. During this time, he noticed how living organisms and elements of nature have a symbiotic relationship and a perpetual balance of harmony. Just like the pH level of soil, water, sunlight, and insects create the optimal environment for living organisms on the farm to thrive, he understood that hair wellness and growth were no different.
Vegamour was born from this concept of modeling the interaction of living organisms with nature’s holistic ecosystem.
The goal was to create hair products that synergize with the body’s natural processes to optimize hair growth, retention, and strength. From this philosophy, the brand pioneered products formulated with plant actives that can be easily absorbed and synthesized by the body. This is also known as bioavailability.
Using advanced biomolecular technology, Vegamour scientists were able to develop a process that fuses plants’ bioactive compounds, potency, and cellular energy into peptides that can be easily absorbed by the hair follicle.
And their mission didn’t stop there.
Vegamour further expanded on its core principles by developing a production line that advocates sustainability and giving back to the communities they work with.
“Once I learned about where they source ingredients and how they are supporting those communities through ethical harvesting, I knew that I wanted to support that mission.” Nicole Kidman
Hollywood Actress - via Fashion United
The Core Principles of Vegamour
Using Vegamour’s hair products is like embarking on a new journey of self-love and hair wellness.
The brand formulates its products with love from start to finish.
From sourcing the highest quality ingredients from around the world to using sustainable packaging, everything Vegamour does reflects in its product experience.
Vegamour develops each product with 4 core principles:
Each plant-based ingredient is optimized for purity, maximum efficiency, and made bioavailable. This means the body identifies, absorbs, and synthesizes each ingredient as if it was one of its own – without any side effects.
2. 100% Vegan and Non Toxic
Many hair products on the market today contain sulfates, silicones, and other chemical hormone disruptors that damage the hair and can also have long-lasting detrimental effects on the overall health. Plus, many of these commercial products come at the expense of animal cruelty.
Vegamour products don’t contain any toxins or hormones, and on each product’s card, you can see the following clearly listed:
- 100% vegan
- Synthetic fragrance-free
- Castor oil-free
Vegamour believes what you put on your hair and scalp is just as important as what you put in your body.
Clean and ethical beauty should not be only for those who can afford it, but for everyone. And Vegamour is on a mission to make its products more affordable and accessible by securing an $80 million investment backing from General Atlantic.
At the time of writing this, I just read that Vegamour will also be hitting the UK markets. I bought my products directly from the US and had them shipped by DHL to London. That’s how badly I wanted to get my hands on them.
3. Holistic Hair Wellness
Vegamour believes in taking a holistic approach to haircare. It means looking at the whole system as one functioning unit. The scalp, hair follicles, and hair shaft work together. Each product should work in tandem to improve every part of that underlying system that keeps the hair in good health from its roots.
4. Science-backed Results
To ensure the quality and efficacy of their products, Vegamour performs rigorous clinical testing on every ingredient in every product. This testing helps identify potential allergies or skin sensitivities that customers may have, as well as determine the best ingredients concentrations for maximum results.
By choosing Vegamour, customers can be confident that they are using a products that have been tested for safety and efficacy.
Vegamour Is Pure Botanical Goodness
Clean plant actives directly from mother nature are the heart of every Vegamour product.
Here are the key ingredients that power Vegamour’s line of products:
Karmatin (Not Keratin)
Instead of using animal-derived keratin (like from feathers, hooves, animal hairs, and horns), Vegamour uses Karmatin, their unique encapsulated vegan b-silk protein developed in labs to mimic the silk of the wasp spider.
Karmatin is a vegan version of traditional keratin that delivers microscopic molecules of silk proteins to the hair where it needs them most. Being small and easy to digest, the hair can bind them faster to patch up damaged areas.
Mung beans are a powerhouse of nutrients for hair health. They are rich in folate, zinc, selenium, vitamins A, B, C, and biotin. Mung beans also contain plenty of antioxidants and is known to fertilize hair.
Curcumin, also commonly known as turmeric, is known to decrease high levels of DHT, one of the contributing factors to hormonal hair loss.
Curcumin also exhibits antifungal and antibacterial properties to ward off scalp infections.
Red clover is a rich source of isoflavones, plant-based molecules that exhibit antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Isoflavones promote hair health by protecting the follicles from oxidative stress and inflammation.
Caffeine is a stimulant. When applied topically to the scalp, it improves blood flow to bring essential nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles. Caffeine can also help reduce inflammation, promoting healthy hair growth.
Used in their advanced products, hemp oil is packed with fatty acids and minerals, which are beneficial for nourishing and conditioning hair. The oil helps seal moisture, add shine, and reduce frizz. It can also help to prevent hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.

Does Vegamour Work for Hair Loss?
The Vegamour Gro range was created specifically to optimize hair growth and reduce hair loss. Working from the core of the hair, Vegamour’s science of holistic hair wellness tackles the root causes of hair thinning and hair loss by creating balance and offsetting oxidative stress.
According to clinical results involving subjects in the age range of 18 – 62 and consumer studies from 150 women, 91% of the subjects reported significant improvements in the appearance of thicker hair over a period of 150 days.
To further back up their claims, Vegamour offers a money-back guarantee if you don’t see results after 90 days of consistent use. This is how much they believe in their products.
The Vegamour Hair Growth Range
Vegamour’s hair growth product line (GRO) is designed to promote and support thicker, fuller, and longer hair. By inhibiting oxidative stress and hormone imbalances with the use of adaptogenic plants, its GRO range fuses modern science with traditional herbal medicine to fight hair loss problems. The advanced molecular biology also enables Vegamour to deliver high-performance formulations that can progressively enhance the scalp microbiome and follicular environment for better hair retention and growth.
To put it simply, Vegamour’s hair growth products reactivate the cellular machinery of the hair from the core to transition more follicles into the anagen phase.
For those with more serious conditions like alopecia, postpartum, or menopausal hair loss, there is a GRO+ advanced range with extra cannabidiol (CBD) extracts. CBD has proven to reduce inflammation and improve circulation to boost hair growth. 
Whether you use their products to prevent hair loss, boost growth, get rid of frizz, or reverse damage, Vegamour’s philosophy of “healthy hair starts from within” is ingrained into every product they put on the shelves.

Customers rave about its effectiveness in stopping hair loss calling it one of the best for postpartum, menopausal, and even post-covid hair loss.

- 65% customers had less grays in 90 days
- Boosts natural hair color
- Reduces oxidative stress in hair
Hair loses pigmentation due to a complex number of factors, such as aging, lifestyle variables, and vitamin deficiencies, among many others. But one of the key contributors is oxidative stress. 
Vegamour’s Gro Ageless serum contains plant adaptogens that helps combat oxidative stress. It uses caffeine, Fo-Ti (a popular Chinese tonic herb), and Glycoproteins to boost antioxidant levels within the follicular ecosystem and neutralize the free radicals that cause premature graying.
64% of customers who used this serum reported less gray in 90 days, while 71% said their hair looked much healthier after continuous use.

Vegamour’s daily biotin gummies are packed with B vitamins, zinc, and folic acid, all working together to fight the follicle-damaging free radicals that inhibit hair growth. These gummies also boost the hair’s collagen and keratin production to encourage faster growth.
Popping a delicious strawberry-flavored gummy every day is definitely more fun than applying a topical solution if you don’t have time for the latter.

Vegamour Supports A Greener World
Here’s a quote from Vegamour’s CEO about the vision of the company:
“A greener world, driven by a growing demand for clean, efficacious hair and beauty products powered by organic, sustainably grown and thoughtfully harvested plant actives. The fact that this demand creates eco-friendly, fair trade economic opportunities and jobs for tens of thousands of small farmers and their families for generations to come is exciting.” Dan Hodgdon
CEO Vegamour - Forbes
Vegamour is committed to supporting a greener world through its eco-friendly partners and operations. It is part of the company’s DNA to offset its carbon footprint and support green initiatives worldwide.
Throughout their production process, all byproducts of the plants they produce are fully utilized to eliminate waste. Vegamour also participates in tree planting programs in the regions where their raw materials are harvested.
Ethical Harvesting and Fair Trade Partnerships
Vegamour’s entire product line is plant-based and sourced from counties like Northern Namibia, Swaziland, South Africa, and organic farms in the USA. At every step, their raw materials are sourced through fair-trade partnerships, supporting over 5000 women (farmers, harvesters, processors) to provide them with sustainable economic opportunities.
Vegamour believes in giving back to the communities by paying sustainable, above-market rates for the raw materials (plants) that are the life and soul of its products.
And finally, Vegamour also has a strict biodiversity baseline to address the impact of its operations. By planting trees in the regions where their plants are sourced from, the company actively helps restore nature’s balance and its value chain.

Does Vegamour work for gray hair?
Vegamour has a specific line of products that works for gray hair reduction. It’s called the GRO Ageless range. The Gro Ageless products are formulated with bioavailable adaptogens and minerals to combat oxidative stress and slow down the hair’s aging process.

No. Vegamour products do not have silicone. Instead, they contain hair-friendly oils extracted from plants like jojoba oil, marula oil, and ximenia oil to achieve the same lubricating effect of silicone without leaving any residue after washing.
Does Vegamour have Formaldehyde?
Vegamour confirms on its official website that its products are completely formaldehyde-free and free from formaldehyde-releasing agents.
Is Vegamour good for alopecia?
The Vegamour GRO+ advanced serum can help alopecia sufferers by stabilizing hair loss caused by inflammatory scalp conditions.

Is Vegamour safe for color-treated hair?
All Vegamour products are color-safe because they do not contain harsh stripping chemicals like sulfates. Plant-based ingredients do not cause adverse chemical reactions to color pigments in the hair. In fact, they boost antioxidants, which help to preserve color, making your shade look more vibrant. Some of their products contain vegan keratin, which coats the hair even after rinsing to protect the outer layer from oxidizing. This is highly beneficial as it protects hair dyes from fading after washing. In short, Vegamour products do not strip color. They further enhance the glow and shine to make your hair color pop.
Vegamour is 100% clean, vegan, plant-based, color-safe, sustainable, and cruelty-free. It’s a brand I definitely want to associate with because of its transparency and commitment to its cause.

My scalp loves it. My hair feels smooth as glass. It looks more and more abundant and full of life and vitality, and best of all, I feel reassured about using clean vegan hair products that won’t harm my hair in the long run.
I wish they did skincare products too. I would instantly snap them up!
