Vegamour HYDR8 Review

Vegamour has been a hair care staple in my life for many years. It began with the Vegamour GRO Hair Serum when I started experiencing post-partum hair thinning and loss.

Nearly 5 years later, I still have the hair serum on a monthly subscription. It has done wonders on my problem areas and I just love how much fuller my hair looks.

Now, I’m excited to try out Vegamour’s HYDR8 repair kit collection which specifically targets dry and damaged hair.

While my hair leans more towards normal, than dry, I believe extra hair hydration never hurts anybody.

With ingredients like Karmatin, Mushroom Extract, Magnolia Bark Extract, and Aloe Vera to name a few, this Vegamour hair care line is said to bring new life (and major hydration) to your thirsty strands.

Many of the products in this line contain the key ingredient Karmatin.

Karmatin creates a sheath around the hair that leaves it with a silken feel and glass-like shine. Karmatin outperforms silicone and does not dry out the hair or clog pores. You feel the effects immediately, and the hair’s health continues to improve over time as Karmatin nurtures and protects the fibers.


Here are a few products from the HYDR8 Hair Care Collection I tried and my thoughts on the products.

HYDR8 Complete Repair Kit Review

Vegamour HYDR-8 Leave-In Conditioner Review

I was excited to try this product because I find that my hair gets brittle and dry after styling. Heat can dry out my strands so having a little extra hydration that doubles as a heat protectant was great.

According to Vegamour, this leave-in conditioner delivers 14x hydration and provides heat protection up to 450°F*.

The spray is formulated without silicones, detangles, and reduces frizz for soft, silky strands.

It’s also powered by Karmatin. Karmatin is a vegan keratin alternative that works to strengthen and repair the look of dry, damaged hair.

After I shampoo and condition my hair, I will apply a few sprays all over my damp hair.

I did not find that this spray made my hair stiff, like some other products I’ve used in the past.

The smell was not overbearing. It did leave my hair looking more hydrated and shiny after applying and styling my hair.

Can I Use the Product on Dry Hair?

Yes, you can use the HYDR8 leave-in conditioner product on dry hair to refresh your style the next day and to protect your hair from heat styling.

When using this product on dry hair, you can use a little less product than on damp hair.

Will the HYDR-8 Leave-In Conditioner Protect My Hair From Heat and Styling Tools?

Yes, the HYDR-8 Leave-In Conditioner provides heat protection up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Vegamour HYDR8 Deep Moisture Repair Mask

2023 SELF Healthy Beauty Award Winner

This was my favorite product out of the collection. I found the hair mask to be extremely hydrating and I loved the smell.

Initially, I applied the Vegamour repair mask after my morning shower and kept it in my hair through lunchtime. Although the instructions suggested leaving it on for 3-5 minutes, I wanted all the hydration I could get.

I rinsed out the product after a few hours. It left my hair feeling so soft and it looked and felt so much more hydrated.

The mask is designed to reduce the look of damaged hair. It works to fight frizz and restore smoother, healthier-looking hair.

It’s also powered by Karmatin which bonds to hair to fortify strands and seal in shine.

How do you use the HYDR-8 Deep Moisture Mask?

After shampooing, wring out excess water from your hair. Apply on damp hair from root to ends. Leave on for 3-5 minutes. Rinse. Use once or twice a week.

Leaving the hair mask on longer than 5 minutes can provide some additional conditioning benefits, but Vegamour recommends using no longer than 10 minutes.

Vegamour HYDR8 Hydrate and Repair Shampoo

2023 ELLE Green Beauty Stars Award Winner

I found the shampoo to be extremely sudsy – in a good way. A little product goes a long way.

On my first use, I poured a palm full of shampoo and it instantly started to overflow with foam as I massaged it into my scalp.

You only need about a tablespoon of product to lather all your hair.

According to the brand, the Vegamour shampoo delivers 8x hydration and 2.5x stronger strands after one use.

The shampoo ingredients include Magnolia Bark Extract to support a healthy scalp with calming and soothing benefits.

And Aloe Vera to condition and moisturize dry strands.

However, after rinsing, I noticed my hair felt a little too clean, almost like my hair was squeaky clean and dry — it was a little difficult to run my finger through my hair.

The smell was pleasant but may be overwhelming for those who prefer fragrance-free hair products.

The bottle is a sleek design with a twist cap. However, I noticed that if you do not twist the cap completely closed, the product will seep out and spill wherever you store it.

I had shampoo covering the shelf in my shower and running down the wall; such a mess and a waste of product.

Which Vegamour Shampoo is Right for My Hair?

Choosing the right shampoo depends on your current hair concerns. HYDR-8 is formulated to hydrate and repair strands.

GRO is formulated to target thinning and shedding.

GRO+ is formulated to target scalp irritation and advanced thinning and shedding.

Vegamour HYDR8 Hydrate and Repair Conditioner

The Vegamour conditioner was extra hydrating and left my hair feeling so soft and manageable.

The consistency was buttery and thick. It had a floral smell that some may find overbearing but I found it to be pleasant.

While my hair tends to be more on the normal side, I did not experience any excessive oiliness or like the product was weighing my hair down.

After a couple of weeks of using the HYDR8 hair care line exclusively, I noticed my hair was much more shinier and manageable —even after several months without a haircut.

According to Vegamour, the conditioner is formulated for dry, parched hair and provides up to 72 hours of hydration while repairing the look of damaged strands.

It’s powered by Karmatin, a vegan keratin alternative that works to fortify strands and replenish shine from root to tip.

The conditioner also contains Marula Oil and Moringa Seed Oil to nourish hair and help reduce frizz and enhance shine. There is also Murumuru Seed Butter to seal in hydration to retain moisture

Will This Conditioner Weigh My Hair Down?

Vegamour conducted a 3-day consumer study using HYDR-8 Shampoo & Conditioner. Based on the study, 95% of users said their hair felt hydrated without feeling weighed down.

Vegamour HYDR8 Before and After

VEGAMOUR HYDR8 before and after

This is my Vegamour HYDR8 before and after using the repair mask. I made sure to not apply any heat styling and just let my hair air dry for more accurate results.

I noticed my hair felt more hydrated and was not as dry as before application. Of all the products I tested for this Vegamour review, I would recommend the repair mask as a must-have product.

I haven’t had a haircut in probably 6 months so I have a lot of split ends. I noticed the hair mask did a great job at minimizing the appearance of split ends and added much-needed shine.
