Gabrielle Union is “bringing it on.” In a recent Instagram post, the 50-year-old mother of one shared a make-up-free face while showing her 21 million followers her head full of gray hairs. She had just removed her braids and wanted to share how she cared for her natural hair following the removal.

“You can tell it grew because you can see all the grays,” the Nebraska native quipped as she showed her gorgeous mane of silver-accentuated highlights. “Welcome to old age, kids.”

The video then shows her daughter Kaavia, 4, running her fingers through her mother’s hair while shouting “Look at your curls!”

“My curls are coming back!” Union replied.

Union says she uses products from her haircare line to help maintain her natural tresses.

According to its website, Flawless by Gabrielle Union is imbued with exotic hydrating ingredients designed to hydrate, define, repair and protect hair.

“This collection is important to me because I fully encourage self-expression and authentic ownership of personal style,” Union said in a statement on the site. “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.”

On Instagram, fans flooded the comment section to applaud the Being Mary Jane star for her transparency as it relates to haircare.

“Thank you for normalizing life, mommyhood, being a great wife and all the other things at the same time,” one commenter wrote. “This is truly the essence of Black Girl.”

“No filter, no makeup- STILL gorgeous!” another fan commented. “I’m grateful you at least have grays…I’m 9 years younger than you and you LOOK 20 years younger than me! If there’s ever a Death Becomes Her reboot- you have to be in it!”
