Gabrille Union and Dwyane Wade's daughter Kaavia James is the internet's favorite shady baby. She became a reason to smile for netizens as they struggled to cope with the pandemic blues in 2020.

Kaavia continues to make her fans laugh and make them fall in love with her quirky and sassy self, but there are some people who would rather play critics and pass comments on her look, especially her hair.

In a recent interview with Madame Noir, Kaavia's mother, Gabrielle Union, got candid about how she instills confidence in her children with regard to their textured hair.

While talking on the subject, Union shared how the internet trolls obsess over her baby daughter's hair in the posts she shares on social media. She wanted the haters to know she sees them.

Union has always tried to set an example for her daughters by embracing her own hair. She has not had a relaxer in over 25 years and keeps her tresses moisturized, trimmed, and healthy.

Union does not chase her around to make sure it looks picture perfect every hour of the day.

The 48-year-old told Madame Noir that she tries not to obsess over Kaavia or her step-daughter Zaya's hair. Since Kaavia swims every day, her hair gets messy even though it is done in the morning.

"So it’s not going to be picture perfect or whatever people feel that means. I’m human. I see comments where they’re like, 'That child’s hair is never done.'"

Kaavia's hair does look perfect on occasion, but Union does not chase her around to make sure it looks picture perfect every hour of the day. She said her fans will always see her natural curls.

"You’ll see her natural curls. You’ll also see that they’re going to be moisturized. That’s more of what I care about, hair health, not the style."

Some people may not like the way Kaavia's natural hair behaves, but she has a mother who is teaching her how to love her natural coils so she will not grow up feeling insecure about it like Union did.

Loving her natural hair has been a journey for Union. She used to feel inadequate because of her mane, but now she takes pride because it represents her identity.
