I've always turned to Gabrielle Union for inspiration when I need a new hairstyle. (In fact, I recently asked stylist Andre Rodman at Rita Hazan to re-create the star's signature shoulder-length cut on my hair.) In my opinion, the actress easily has one of the most covetable manes in Hollywood, whether she's sporting braids, waves, or her gorgeous natural hair.
Like many African-American women, Gabrielle spent years chemically straightening her strands. She told WWD that after years of damage from chemical perms, she decided to go natural, but never found a full range of products that catered to her specific needs. As a result, she decided to create her very first line of hair care products, Flawless by Gabrielle Union, to fill that void.
"I want women with textured hair to have great hair days," she said.
Flawless is a 10-part range that includes shampoo, conditioner, shine spray, treatment masks, and even edge control gel (gotta love a good edge control product!). Each formula was made with a variety of textures in mind and can all be used on both curly and straightened styles. The line was also developed with marula, argan, and avocado oils to solve common natural-hair woes, including frizz, dryness, and split ends.
"I've made it my mission to make sure everything from the formulas to the packaging are just right. I myself have suffered from one too many bad hair days and have never found one range of products that met all of my needs. I wanted to change that! This line is all about healthy hair and versatility— so you can change up your styles without compromising the condition of your hair. I want women to be able to express themselves, flawlessly!" Gabrielle shared in a press release.
The collection will be available in March at Flawlesshair.com (just in time for your Spring beauty revamp), and in April nationwide at Ulta Beauty and Ulta.com. Get a better look at the products ahead, and start thinking about which one of Union's trademark styles you'll be trying out once you snap them up!
