ad | Haircare is something that I’ve grown *kinda obsessed* with over the last few months. I’ve really been keen to get my hair in tip-top shape and I’ve loved trying different brands and products to help make that happen.
I’m always keen to try new brands of skincare and haircare and I had seen Vegamour around the internet a fair bit, so I was really looking forward to trying their products for this collaboration. But first, let’s have a look at who the brand are:
Who are Vegamour?
Vegamour are a brand that have a holistic approach to hair wellness and incorporates clinically tested plant-based ingredients that work in tandem to promote healthy, beautiful hair naturally, without the use of harmful chemicals or short-term ‘fixes’ that can lead to long-term problems.

They use the world’s finest, hand-curated, natural ingredients to ensure quality and efficacy. They also set up our own sustainable supply chains to bring beautiful, natural ingredients into everything they formulate.
In return, they take care of the land and the people who help them bring this true love to you and your hair.

First impressions of Vegamour and the HYDR-8 collection
Those are some pretty strong claims from the Vegamour brand but initially, they’re a brand I really like and can get on board with, particularly their approach to not only cruelty-free and Vegan hair care but also their activity in getting involved with the supply chains and the people that help provide the ingredients to their products.
The packaging – the PACKAGING. I’m an absolute sucker for a nice packaging and this ticks all the boxes for me. All their ranges has beautiful packaging and I love the pink and gold theme, along with the font they’ve chosen for the bottles.
My thoughts on the shampoo and conditioner
The shampoo and condition come in these bottles with a screw type lid – not a lid that actually comes off or flips open, which I really like and found really beneficial, especially as the first time I used these was when I was at swimming and trying to juggle all my things!
The scent of these is absolutely gorgeous as well; the whole range is very floral and rose-like. Which isn’t usually my cup of tea when it comes to scents but these I really liked, it was very feminine and luxurious.
The shampoo lathered up like I’ve never seen and the only thing I can accurately describe it like is meringue. Once it’s lathered and on your head, it’s staying there, like when you’re mixing meringue in a bowl and tip it upside down to see if it stays there.
Bit of a weird analogy but let’s roll with it.
The conditioner is SUPER thick. There is NO WAY this isn’t nourishing your hair. Basically, I really liked the consistency of both of these, as well as the scents, they were really lovely to use.
Thoughts on the hair mask
I also used the hair mask for the first time when I was at swimming, it says to use for 3-5 minutes after cleansing, 2-3 times a week, which is very manageable to add into your haircare routine.
The hair mask is a bit more fragranced than the shampoo and conditioner, again, a beautiful floral and rose-like scent, it almost smelt like a candle.
And the consistency of this was really interesting as well, as I was scooping it out of the pot, it almost felt like… chocolate mousse?
I realise there’s a lot of food-related comparisons here but I was really surprised (in a good way!) with the consistency of these products, they’re not like anything I’ve used before and I like it.
After washing the hair mask out, my hair felt SO incredibly soft!
Thoughts on the leave-in-conditioner
The leave-in conditioner is a beautiful light-weight mist that has the signature floral scent to it.
The first time I used this, I gave my hair a quick spritz and it – almost instantly – transformed my hair from limp and quite honestly, crap, to these super natural looking beach waves.
It gives you hair volume and with a bit of a jusz with your hands, you’ve got a textured hair style that has depth and volume and obviously smells amazing.
The Complete HYDR-8 Haircare Range will set you back $145 (around £110), which although is definitely on the higher end of the scale, it rivals brands such as Larry King and Philip Kingsley who retail for around the same price for some of their products.
You can purchase the whole HYDR-8 range or the individual products from the range, which is a good and more affordable option.
Would I continue using?
I’ve been really impressed with these products ever since I started using them.
One thing that I think is outstanding with these which I’ve never experienced with any other product is how long the scent lasts in your hair!
My hair smelt beautifully and rosy for literally hours after washing it.
The hair mask has been a lovely addition to my haircare routine, helping me keep the dry ends at bay (which is really important for me as I do a lot of swimming and chlorine can play havoc on your hair).
The shampoo and conditioner are absolute staples. I love using them and my hair always feel super clean afterwards.
And the leave-in conditioner is a gorgeous quick-fix for limp, greasy hair or hair that just needs a bit of life injected into it.
Overall, I am hugely impressed by Vegamour and I don’t think I’ve had such high opinions of a new brand I’ve tried in a very long time.
The range I used is perfect for those with dry hair but they also have their GRO and GRO+ range as well as a large range of variations of products that will suit different hair types.
Did you know they also sell brow and lash products too? Definitely something I’m going to be checking out as soon as I sign off here.
Have you ever tried Vegamour? What do you think of the sound of them? What is the main haircare product you need in your life?
