BRING IT ON! Gabrielle Union is giving us new reasons to shake and cheer. The actress recently launched her brand new haircare collection, Flawless by Gabrielle Union. Could this new line be the answer to all of our black hair prayers?
Flawless By Gabrielle Union -NEW Haircare Collection by the Actress Herself
We search, we hunt and sometimes we still come up wanting. Trying to seek out the right products for our lovely tresses can feel like locating a diamond in a cave of wonders. However, Gabrielle Union feels our pain because she has also lived it herself. Regarding her own hair experiences and new collection she explains,
“I went through a phase where I would leave my relaxer on so long, thinking the longer I leave this relaxer on, the straighter it’s going to be. [As a result] cut to lesions, like open wounds on my scalp, trying to chase something that was unrealistic. Eventually, probably in my mid-to-late 20s I decided to give up my relaxer and I went natural. By natural I mean underneath the weaves, extensions, clips and the hair color was my natural hair — thriving.
Today is very exciting! Flawless by Gabrielle Union has finally launched and it is also available online for you to purchase. As a woman with textured hair, the search to find a brand that meets all of my needs has been impossible. That’s why I created Flawless. Wishing you all good hair days from this moment forward!”
As you see growing your own hair and keeping it healthy can be quite the challenge. This is true even for celebrities. Here is a short video Mrs. Wade created to further explain why she designed an extensive haircare system.
Flawless by Gabrielle Union – The Products
Union’s complete haircare system includes a lineup of products that cover literally all bases. Need help with de-tangling? She’s got that. Desiring protection from heat or aid in getting those baby hairs and edges under control? Covered. Here is a list of items from the collection:
- Moisturizing Shampoo – Re-balance and Hydrate Dry Hair
- Moisturizing Conditioner – Detangle and Hydrate Dry Hair
- Oil Treatment
- Smoothing Shampoo – Quench and Tame Frizz Prone, Damaged Hair
- Smoothing Conditioner – Fortify and Tame Frizz Prone, Damaged Hair
- Hair Repair Masque – Repair and Strengthen
- Shine Spray
- Edge Control Gel
- Heat Protection Spray
- Blow Dry Cream
Quite a few products already available right? However, when it comes to hair products a nice shiny package means nothing. What’s most important is what is actually inside. Therefore, we were curious about what ingredients have been tapped for the line and the new brand was very forthcoming about that and more. They state,
“It’s here! Introducing Flawless by Gabrielle Union – designed to help you achieve ever-changing looks without comprising the health of your favorite accessory, your hair. Flawless is specially formulated to promote the strength and health of all hair [types], from wavy to curly to coily to kinky. Furthermore, every Flawless product is packed with Argan, Marula and Avocado oils for maximum nourishment and shine!
Flawless by Gabrielle Union was created for natural and relaxed hair of all textures. Our products are sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, color safe and safe for human and synthetic hair.”
We are definitely moving in the right direction! The battle of creating amazing black hair products is being won. More and more women of color are taking matters into their own hands in order to provide proper haircare to their fellow sistas. For years, mainstream brands have often ignored or caused more damage to black women by releasing products with extremely harmful ingredients. They knew it and that is absolutely unacceptable.
However, now the void is being filled. Thanks to the pioneering efforts of women like Union an array of choices is continuing to be made available to a market of women who spend over a billion dollars annually. We love our hair and we deserve products that also show that love right back to our strands.
What we love about Gabrielle Union’s collection is the fact that much thought went into the formulas used. Moreover, she seems to be right in step with black hair trends. A large amount of ladies are turning to natural merchandise and Union’s collection is sulfate and paraben free.
Furthermore, she is even aware that a growing amount of women are currently going gluten-free. Whether it be due to lifestyle or health reasons this is a growing trend. As a result, this is great line for girls who have celiac disease and thus require an option free of gluten.
When it comes to developing a great product, forethought is everything and it looks like Gabby put the time in. Want to give her new collection a spin? It is available online. Check it out by heading over to www.flawlesshair.com
One last thing we thought we would mention before we go! If you want to see how the masses are vibing this collection look no further than social media. Search under the hashtag #FlawlessBoxReveal which was created exclusively for Flawless shoppers.
Consequently, those who have purchased Flawless goodies can use the hashtag to show off their hair swag. Also, many Flawless fans give their honest opinion which is very helpful when it comes to deciding what to buy. Here is one review that we found to be very informative:
“I love everything about these products from the logo to the color. My hair is sooo soft & it feels healthier. I can’t wait to wash my hair again. I used the moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, the hair repair masque and shine control. Thank you Gabrielle Union for Flawless.”
