Vegamour is an American company founded in 2016 by Daniel Hodgson. It is a vegan, cruelty free beauty brand of hair products from shampoos, conditioners to hair growth serums. The brand uses an holistic approach to hair wellness that incorporates clinically tested plant -based ingredients – no use of harmful chemicals and ensuring that every product in the Vegamour range as well as each ingredient, works in tandem. Only 100% vegan ingredients and no testing on animals either. According to Vegamour’s website, Vegamour utilises the latest advances in clean, bimolecular technology to ensure that each plant-based ingredient in every product formulated is optimised for maximum efficiency. Sounds impressive, eh?!

Deep Moisture Repair Mask


I received the Vegamour Hydr-8 Shampoo and Conditioner Essentials Kit to review. This kit comprises of 3 full size products- hydrating shampoo; hydrate & repair conditioner and a deep moisture repair hair mask. The shampoo is a hydrate and repair shampoo powered by Karmatin ™️, which is a vegan alternative to Keratin. The hair conditioning mask was to be used instead of the conditioner at least once or twice a week.
The 3 products have been formulated for use on dry, damaged hair. My hair is highlighted and dry; it suffers from frizz and waviness on humid days; I normally wash my hair once or twice a week so, for this review I used the mask one week instead of the conditioner; and then used the shampoo & conditioner the following week; and so on. I have used these products for approximately a month.
The shampoo & conditioner have twisty cap applicators and the repair mask is a thick and buttery cream in a tub. All three items have a strong, pleasant scent to them.
Key ingredients: Karmatin ™️, Amino Acids , Marula Oil, Moringa Seed Oil.

According to Vegamour’s website, Karmatin ™️ is an innovative, encapsulated vegan b-silk ™️ protein that replaces traditional keratin. Many hair products contain keratin, an animal protein that rinses away before it can repair damaged hair. Karmatin ™️ bonds to the hair, nourishing it instantly for a glass like feel. It also deeply nourishes, repairs and protects hair from external aggressors like chlorine


  • Keeps Colour Vibrant – I’m not 100% sure on this claim because my hair colour at the moment is fairly muted and not as blonde as I used to have it in the past. My hair is highlighted though and some of the stronger blonde highlights are definitely vibrant to be fair.
  • Gently cleanses – Despite the strong smell ( which I loved), the shampoo gently cleansed and all three products didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and scalp. No dandruff either.
  • Conditioner softens and smooths strands. Reducing frizz. Locking in moisture. Yes, the conditioner definitely performed well. My hair feels very smooth and soft. Despite the recent humid weather, my hair hasn’t succumbed to frizz. Win win.
  • Deep Moisture Repair Mask – instantly repairing the appearance of damaged hair. The mask felt lovely when applied and my hair doesn’t look dry, even when it is due a wash after a few days! My hair also feels a lot thicker than it used to.
  • Unparalleled softness and shine. Oh definitely. My hair feels very soft and there is a definite shine.


This haircare range set from Vegamour is impressive, offering an effective solution for those seeking vegan and cruelty-free products. The delightful scent and gorgeous packaging contribute to a luxurious experience, which is reflected in the quality of the products. However, the high cost can be a significant downside. Some Vegamour products cater to specialised hair conditions, such as thickeners etc; justifying their price to some extent. Despite the expense, regular sales on their website can make these products more accessible, and their attractive presentation makes them excellent gift options. Overall, I rate Vegamour products 7/10, deducting points primarily due to their price.
