Launched in collaboration with celebrity hairstylist Chuck Amos, Ouidad’s new six-product Coil Infusion Collection uses its plant-based ingredients to give those with Type 4 hair a “bespoke and spa-like solution in order to meet the singular needs of natural coily hair.”

Amidst yesterday’s (May 18) virtual event for the launch, Amos said that he was excited about the collaboration being specifically created for Type 4 hair patterns. He told viewers, “As a hairstylist, I specifically see what types of problems people with this curl pattern have — 4a-4c. It’s this type of curl that really struggles with moisture, and because of that, the strands are really prone to breakage and curl shrinkage.”

Explaining more about the inspiration for the Coil Infusion Collection, a representative from Ouidad’s product development team emphasized that currently in the hair market Type 4 hair is “underserved and misunderstood.” With that in mind, she noted that the brand created the Coil Infusion Collection “to embrace and normalize the beauty and texture of 4a to 4c coils — showcasing its luxurious volume, magical rebellion to gravity, and beautiful effervescent kinks.”

Touching on what Amos pointed out, she emphasized that the line “also addresses some of the hair struggles that come with Type 4 hair like absorbing moisture and suffering from breakage.” The rep continued, “We formulated six hydrating products that are deeply strengthening and moisturizing. They’re designed specifically to address those concerns. They provide moisture-locking properties, maximum slip and detangling, curl elongation, hair restoration, and strengthening benefits. It’s a power-fusing line with power-fusing ingredients that actively work.”

As per a press release on the new launch, the collection includes the brand’s:
