No matter what Gabrielle Union does, she always looks good.
She’s been one of our hair icons since the 90s and amazingly, in her 30 years in the public eye, she’s never missed a beat. Seriously, try to find one photo of Gabrielle looking less than perf – good luck, because it simply doesn’t exist. She also doesn’t seem to rest – she’s an actress, producer, entrepreneur, best-selling author, wife to NBA champ Dwayne Wade, and mother. In addition to all those titles, she’s now decided to share her hair secrets with us, with the launch of Flawless By Gabrielle Union.
Flawless by Gabrielle Union Exotic Hair Oil: $9.99
Low price, high quality
The entire line will be priced super affordably (which we need in this economy), with products starting at $4 and only going up to $10. Founded alongside her longtime stylist Larry Sims, the line is a majority black-owned business and formulated specifically for textured hair.
Union launched Flawless after suffering from hair loss when undergoing IVF treatment to get pregnant. This undesirable side effect prompted her to collaborate with Sims to create a line that would restore her mane back to its healthy state. One of their key observations researching was that hydration is everything. To make sure Flawless is fully moisturizing Sims and Union sourced some of the highest quality ingredients, including Brazilian Bacuri Butter, Coconut Oil, Biotin, Amazonian Pequi Oil, Himalayan Moringa Oil, Rice Oil complex, Lilac Leaf extract, and African Shea Butter.
“This collection is very important to me because I fully encourage self-expression and authentic ownership of personal style,” says Gabrielle Union. “Wanting to try different hairstyles as a component of that shouldn’t mean compromising the health of your hair, nor breaking the bank with expensive products. We were dedicated to developing the perfect blend of high quality, affordable products for all types of textured hair to promote flawless beauty through choice and diversity.”
“I’m proud of this collection because we were intentional about crafting a line that is versatile enough to provide solutions for all style choices,” adds Larry Sims. “From curls, waves, and coils, to heat styles, braids, wigs, and weaves, there is a Flawless product to support your hair’s needs for brilliance, health and beauty.”
“Gabrielle inspired me. Gabrielle and I were very intentional about crafting a line for the textured hair woman who loves trying different styles but doesn’t want to compromise their hair and scalp health. For anyone who wears curls, waves, heat styles, braids, wigs, or weaves, there is a product in our collection that helps you achieve or support these desired looks,” he continued.
The full line includes a shampoo and conditioner, mask, leave-in conditioner, scalp soothing tonic, curl cream, blow dry cream, heat protection spray, and curl refresher spray. It officially launched August 3rd and is available on Amazon. Scroll for links to a few of our faves!
