Tamar & Trina Braxton On Sisterhood & Gain Flings! {$25 Giveaway}

While at the Essence Festival this July, I attended a party hosted by My Black is Beautiful, Gain & The Braxton sisters! Gain has finally unveiled its new first ever single use detergent, Gain Flings. The Braxtons are officially ambassadors of Gain Flings and I was able to take a few minutes to see why Tamar & Trina Braxton believe this product is Music To Your Nose.

Me and the BraxtonsTamar, how does Gain Flings tie into your day-to-day life?  Tamar: I do not do laundry! I can’t iron to this day. It makes it easy for me because I like things that smell good. Candles, Etc. Gain smells amazing. I throw my shirt in there with the fling and my clothes smell amazing. I use it often. 

Trina, how did the partnership happen with Gain? Trina: This is our 4th year at Essence, and in the past we would go visit the MBIB Booth and see Gain. We would always tell them how good they smell and how we use it. They thought it would be a great marriage because we would be promoting a product we already use, so the partnership was very organic. We actually use it and love it. 


Tamar & Trina, tell us something people don’t know about you? TamarBelieve it or not, I am very domestic. I cook and take care of my man. I am very old school. I was raised in a southern household and raised as southern women. I 100% take care of my man. They think I push him around, tell him what to do, no ma’am! I make sure he’s taken care of. Trina: I am more than just a glass of wine. I have a business mind that will make the horses come home. I am very entrepreneurial. We opened our first Bar Chix location in Duluth and the Trina Braxton hair collection, TractHer Trail Her, is now available online. I am also doing another (scripted) Television show coming soon. 


Tamar, What does Sisterhood mean to you? Tamar: Sisterhood means everything to me: keeping a secret, being there for each other, telling the truth when a sister doesn’t want to hear it. DO it in a way that is respectful. I am a girl’s girl, I am all for women’s empowerment, but my delivery and approach wasn’t doing anything for my sisters but pushing them away from me. I had to look at the way I say things or not say anything at all. You have to respect each other as women, mothers and wives!!

    Awesome!! I love the part about respecting each other as women. Yes, sometimes it’s bad to keep secrets from each other, but it can be equally damaging to a relationship if you tell your “sister” things in a callous manner.
