AceShowbiz - Gabrielle Union has embraced her "old age." When sharing her hair care routine with her followers, the actress portraying Mary Jane Paul on "Being Mary Jane" did not shy away from showing off "the grays" hidden among her natural hair.
On Thursday, June 1, the 50-year-old star let out an Instagram video that displayed her sharing how she took care of her natural hair after braids removal. "Braids are out," she began telling the camera before showing off gray hair at her hairline. "That's how much you can tell it grew because you can see all the grays," she added. "Welcome to old age, kids."
In that same video, Gabrielle was joined by her 4-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, who briefly helped her with her hair. At one point, Kaavia could be heard exclaiming, "Look at your curls!" In response, Gabrielle confirmed to her little girl, "My curls are coming back!"
Gabrielle went on to show the final result of her hair care routine by posing in front of a huge mirror. Accompanying the clip, she wrote in the caption, "Slip without the fall." She also listed all the products she used by writing, "@flawlessbygu 5 Butter Miracle Masque, 5 Butter Leave-In Conditioner, Scalp Soothing Tonic."
Gabrielle's post was quick to draw positive responses. In the comments section of the post, one thanked the actress by saying, "Thank you for showing this texture of hair. It is very similar to my own. I feel like the media expects all black women to have a long bouncy or coily ringlets. But we have all kinds of hair and yours is beautiful."
Another user, in the meantime, reminded the former judge of "America's Got Talent" about the condition of her hair. "I really just want to help. The hair appears dehydrated. Although, buildup can disguise itself as damage," the user pointed out.
"It looks like you may need a hard water/mineral/buildup remover and a bond repairer to rehab the hair. Then, you can use your products. It will make improve the efficacy of your products. Trust me on this and take this as #FreeJewelry," the follower continued. "Thank you for sharing."
