After spending a fortune on hair loss ‘cures’, I was skeptical about Vegamour at first. These days, I’m a proud baldie – I’m ok with my alopecia, most of the time! But when I lost even MORE hair during pregnancy, and when my eyebrow disappeared too, I began wishing the glowing Vegamour hair serum reviews I’d read were true.
Because even though I hadn’t seen new growth in a while, it had been far longer since I’d experienced sudden hair loss. So, SO much of it…damn pregnancy hormones! Then I started using Vegamour hair serum for my scalp and eyebrows. And I can happily report: shedding stopped in its tracks!
So here’s my first-hand review of Vegamour’s most popular product: Vegamour GRO Serum, a look at its other serums for hair growth, and how I used them for postpartum hair loss. Enjoy!

Hi there, I’m an alopecian, I’m not a doctor! Any advice I give is based on my own research and personal experiences. This site is however reader-supported. When you buy through external links, I may earn a tiny affiliate commission. Learn more here.
Let’s jump right in with the original GRO serum – and how it can help you!
On its website, Vegamour reports noticeably denser hair – up to 52% – after using the GRO serum for 3 to 4 months. It also claims to reduce signs of shedding by up to 76% – and it does all this without harmful chemicals like parabens, synthetic fragrances, dyes, phthalates, petrolatum or finasteride. Nice one.
The hair serum’s vegan formula is a powerful blend of proteins, vitamins, inflammation-reducers and immune-boosters. It also includes natural DHT blockers, designed to lengthen the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle, plus ingredients like caffeine, curcumin and biotin to strengthen and volumise each strand.
So what’s in Vegamour GRO serum that makes it so special? Let’s take a look!
A natural source of folate, the serum’s mung beans support healthy cell production and hair growth. (You’re probably familiar with folate as a popular hair treatment; it’s also a key ingredient in the top hair loss supplement Folexin.)
Hormonal imbalance is a common cause of alopecia – and DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, is a key culprit. When DHT attaches itself to your hair follicle, your receptor flares up and the follicle shrinks in response. This can cause the strands of hair it holds to break off. So good hair loss treatments include DHT blockers – and the red clover in Vegamour’s GRO serum is an all-natural one. Yay!
Curcumin – the main component in turmeric – is a popular hair growth treatment because it lowers inflammation, supports the immune system and improves blood circulation. I’m a big fan, and recommend taking daily curcumin supplements if you don’t like its taste…or getting stained fingers! You can also get a satisfying dose through Vegamour’s hair serums. (Phew.)
It might sound strange but the nicotine plant could actually help hair growth! Vegamour claims, just like curcumin, it boosts the immune response and lowers inflammation – and this study shows tobacco leaves to promote hair growth and improve density. Ok, so that’s a different plant – but they’re closely related so I’m sure the benefits overlap!
The Advanced serum takes the same nourishing plant-based formula as the GRO serum and adds micro-encapsulated, full-spectrum hemp oil. (That’s actually how I discovered Vegamour; while researching CBD oil for hair loss. And I learned that CBD and hemp oils have tons of benefits, not just for encouraging growth but for reducing the anxiety and inflammation that trigger hair loss in the first place.)
CBD acts as an immunosuppressant to slow down or prevent hair loss. It also moves vitamins and minerals to the scalp faster, thanks to its anti-oxidising, blood-circulating qualities. So with the GRO+ Advanced serum, you help Vegamour’s lovely nutrients to get even deeper into your hair follicles. Whoop!
Vegamour still recommends using this product for at least months, with peak results after 120 days.
water/aqua/eau, butylene glycol, alcohol denat. glycerin, caffeine, polysorbate 20, curcuma longa (turmeric) callus conditioned media, panthenol, disodium edta, limonene, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) peel oil, trifolium pratense (clover) seed extract, vigna radiata seed extract, sodium benzoate, linalool, potassium sorbate, gluconolactone, biotin, citral, calcium gluconate, oligopeptide-2.
I noticed fairly quick regrowth after using the brow serum – and I’m sure that for more diligent people than I, who apply it twice daily as recommended, it’ll deliver even more impressive results!
The GRO+ serum includes the great hair-boosting ingredients I mentioned before, like red clover, mung beans and CBD oil, plus magnolia bark extract, which has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and now in the cosmetic industry for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties.
So if your brows are looking a little thin, or if you’ve lost them entirely, I’d highly recommend trying this serum. Vegamour brow reviews online are equally positive!
Aqua, Pentylene Glycol, Propanediol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract, Gellan Gum, Xanthan Gum, Cannabis Sativa Flower/leaf/stem Extract, Propylene Glycol, Cannabidiol, Trifolium Pratense Sprout Extract, Vigna Radiata Sprout Extract, Glyceryl Citrate/lactate/linoleate/oleate, Polyglyceryl-2 Oleate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Dextran, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3, Trifolium Pratense Flower Extract, Sodium Hydroxide.
It’s easy to use Vegamour hair serums – because the dropper included with them makes application a breeze!
Apply the Vegamour serum of your choice morning or night, even if you have hair extensions (they aren’t oily). You can also use the serums on dry hair – they have a thin, watery and nearly odorless consistency so you’ll barely notice their presence. Find a system that works for you; just make sure to use your serum daily for best results!
Despite some complaints around import taxes from UK buyers (see my full Vegamour brand review for more), customers online are raving about these serums.

I have alopecia, and have tried everything. I started GRO+ 2 months ago, and it’s been a LIFE CHANGER, my hair stopped a lot of shedding and I’ve seen new hair regrowth. It’s definitely worth it!
Gal A says:
This is the real deal. I’d say I’m losing about half as much hair and my hair is feeling fuller. I love that they’re vegan and transparent about what’s in each product.
I massaged my scalp so that the serum would work and help grow the hair on my edges. After 30 days, I noticed that my edges are growing a bit longer.
I started using the GRO serum and the GRO+ Advanced serum interchangeably during my second trimester of pregnancy. I’d begun shedding more and more hair at a point when I’d expected a sudden burst of shiny and luscious hair, as I’d heard would happen around that time! When the opposite happened, I turned to Vegamour.
I was thrilled that the shedding stopped, almost immediately. Then my hair did actually get fuller and thicker. Sure, I didn’t have much hair to show off…but what was there was now shiny, lustrous and very springy.
(OK, so that could’ve been the pregnancy hormones taking a positive turn. But considering they’d been working against my hair until that point…I think I have Vegamour serums to thank for the sudden improvement!)
It was all going well until I experienced significant postpartum hair loss. A small round patch on the crown of my head began spreading until I resembled Friar Tuck – taking with it my mohawk, my source of such pride!
And that’s the point I’m at now. I can just about cover the large bald spot with clips, but sometimes I feel more comfortable wearing a headscarf to disguise it. And unfortunately, Vegamour serums don’t seem to be working their magic this time…but with a five-month old baby, I’m far less disciplined about sticking to my scalp care regime!
Still, I’m pretty confident that the Vegamour GRO serum will improve my hair loss and encourage regrowth. I just need to stick with it.
I was really impressed with how quickly my eyebrow started growing back after using this serum. My right eyebrow, which had disappeared completely during the early days of pregnancy, grew downy fuzz again after just a week or so.
And after a month of (admittedly, sporadic!) use, I noticed long hairs above the outer corner of my right eye – my brow returning, from the edge in.
It did take quite a while, and for me to be more consistent with the application but eventually my right eyebrow grew back entirely!
Vegamour started out with eyelash and eyebrow growth treatments back in 2017 – but its vegan Gro Serum for hair soon became its bestseller.
Nowadays, the vegan hair care company has a wide range of products to treat hair loss. And if you’re an eco-friendly type (because, well, it’s nice to be!) you’ll be happy to know Vegamour’s serums are 100% organic and vegan-certified. They support Fair Trade initiatives, too. Woohoo!
Psst… if you want to find out more about Vegamour, or the other hair loss treatments they make, check out this post.
It’s not exactly cheap but in my opinion, worth it! The GRO serum costs $52 for a 1oz bottle, which lasts a month. Or check out their special offers, like their 3-pack of the GRO+ Advanced serum, including options for a subscription service.
Vegamour is one of the only hemp-inclusive brands designed specifically for hair. And unlike other CBD oils, its serums use a micro-encapsulation process to break this CBD down into super-small particles – basically, so it penetrates your follicles and your hair can absorb its nutrients easier. That way, Vegamour serums don’t just remain on the surface of your hair – they get right under your skin. To the root of the problem, so to speak.
I wish I could give you a full breakdown with timelines, before and after pics, etc. And I’ve tried to include a few, to give you an idea of my progress. But because I used Vegamour in such a sporadic fashion, my personal experience isn’t perhaps as dramatic as it could’ve been, had I just been consistent with applying the serum.
I am, however, pretty confident that the Vegamour serum reviews out there are legit. I mean, I saw notable changes after just a few uses so I do see how with daily use, results could be amazing!
I hope that’s given you enough to go on, so you can make an informed decision and try one of Vegamour’s hair serums for your own hair loss woes! Wishing you all the very best with whatever you go for.
