How I Built My Haircare Routine

Why does skincare get all the love?

I don't just cleanse my face and expect my skin will be glowy, plump, and youthful, so why do I think just shampooing my hair with the occasional leave-in conditioner will get me the luscious locks I desire?

As I applied my moisturizer, the last step in my 5-step skincare routine, it hit me. If I want my hair to reach its full potential I need a multiple-step hair care routine too.

But where to start! What products were going to give real results, and how would I know if they would work well together? If I learned anything from building my skincare routine, it's that there are some products that should never be used together!

Firstly I established my hair goal- longer hair, with added thickness and volume. Lately, there's been a lot more hair in my brush when I comb it, so I wanted to take a proactive approach to thinning hair, as I know so many women are also experiencing it at the moment.

I read so much about so many different products that promise to deliver longer, healthier hair, but they all seemed to be the same thing with a different label. Then I found Vegamour, a vegan beauty brand that has everything you could ever want to grow your hair (including lashes and brows).

From my research, I knew all about the scary side-effects of chemical ingredient hair growth products like Rogaine. It contains minoxidil which can cause crazy side effects like Eczema, burning, irritation to even respiratory and heart effects. So I went crazy for Vegamour's natural vegan plant ingredients that come with amazing scientific hair growth properties.

Vegamour truly understands what we need when it comes to hair growth and getting our hair to its healthiest form. They don't offer a one size fits all approach, they have many different products to suit everyone - perfect for forming my 6-step hair care routine.

The first step in my new routine is the GRO Scalp Detoxifying Serum. I apply this once or twice a week before I wash my hair to get rid of any build of impurities or dirt clogging the pores on my scalp.

Like all Vegamour products, this scalp serum is full of powerful ingredients. The vegan silk protein repairs scalp damage, destroys unhealthy bacteria, helps lock in moisture, and protects the scalp from environmental pollutants. It also contains Zinc PCA, to absorb excess oils and reduce irritation for a balanced, healthy microbiome, while the caffeine increases scalp blood circulation for the perfect combination for optimal hair growth.

The most important part of the Detoxifying Serum is that it creates the perfect entryway for the GRO Shampoo and Conditioner, steps 2 and 3. Using them both has shown me what a high-quality shampoo and conditioner should be like. They both contain the clinically proven phyto-actives and Vegamour's proprietary Karmatin™, a microencapsulated b-SILK™protein (the first-of-its-kind vegan keratin) works to restore and strengthen your hair by physically binding to hair follicles and remaining attached to strands even after rinsing.

Step 4 is Vegamour's #1 selling Hair Serum that delivers visible results in as soon as 90 days and after 4 months up to 50% greater density and 76% less shedding. All by using powerful phyto-actives, such as red clover, curcumin, and mung bean. This formula gives a boost in strength, length, and thickness. I simply add a few drops of this serum to my problem areas along my hairline and face. It feels super luxurious and is so easy to use on wet or dry hair.

Step 5 is my new favorite styling product that saves me from washing my hair so often. Vegamour's GRO Dry Shampoo has converted me, I hated everything about dry shampoo before I tried this. I love everything about it from its light, natural fragrance to the zero residues it leaves behind. The added benefit of its plant-based formula helps to stimulate growth through the same clinically tested phyto-actives as in Vegamour's other products while staying true to the brand's promise of being vegan, clean, and cruelty-free.

And of course, I had to try their Gummies to complete my 6-step hair care routine. The GRO Biotin Gummies are fortified with biotin and folic acid as well as vitamins B-5, 6, and 12 to encourage healthy hair growth, strengthens strands and nourishes the scalp. They taste delicious and they have all the vitamins and minerals I want to take in one easy gummy.

Two months in, and just like my skincare routine I'm loving the results I'm already seeing from my Vegamour 6-step hair care routine. My scalp and hair have never felt fresher and healthier. Plus my hair has serious growth and feels so much thicker. I can't wait to see my results from the combination of all my Vegamour products after 3 and 4 months.

The best part about getting all my hair care products from Vegamour is their GRO kits offer many of their products all together at a discounted price. The GRO Complete Kit is the best value, for $242 I get all my 6 of my Vegamour products plus their new GRO Hair Foam, which I'm excited to try. Plus, I subscribed and saved even more.
