Actress Tia Mowry has launched a ‘clean’, natural hair care line for those with curly hair.

The Sister, Sister star’s new venture – 4U by Tia Mowry – aims to provide those with textured hair with “straightforward” products that “support their locks”.

The 44-year-old actress, who is known for her curls, was inspired to launch the range after years of trying to find the right products for her hair. 

The collection comprises eight products which are formulated for 2A to 4C curly hair.

All contain patented ingredient Hemi15 – a biofermented hemisqualane silicone alternative. 

The brand claims it nourishes textured hair and helps with frizz control and breakage protection.

Sea moss, aloe vera, watermelon extract and flaxseed are among the other ingredients. 

4U by Tia Mowry is 100% vegan and free from silicone, sulphates and parabens.

The range has launched at 2,800 Walmart stores across the US. 

"Family, wellness and inclusivity are important to me and 4U by Tia promotes all of these values,” said Mowry.

“Everyone should have access to leading hair care products formulated with ingredients they can pronounce.

“We are giving consumers better choices and products that are straightforward, easy to use, and developed with health and sustainability in mind."

The collection has been created alongside biotechnology company Amyris, which is known for producing popular beauty brands Biossance, JVN and Rose Inc. 

“4U by Tia Mowry furthers our goal of democratising sustainability, combining Tia's vision, Amyris’s lab-to-market technology platform and Walmart's commitment to innovation,” commented John Melo, President and CEO of Amyris.

Products in the range include Clarifying Shampoo, Lightweight Conditioner, Moisturizing Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner.

Plus, Curl Defining Gel, Leave-In Curl Cream, Curl Refresher Mist and Multiuse Hair Oil.
