Everybody wants the secret to having beautiful, natural hair. Well, we are here to tell you that we have found it! It’s quite simple. Consistency. No matter how many products you try and buy. No matter how many protective styles you get. No matter how many new haircuts you get, what really wins, in the end, is consistency. You must be consistent with three things. Take a look below to see what we mean.
Consistency with Cleansing, Conditioning, and Steaming. We can’t emphasize this enough and we are just going to be honest. Most naturals ( and we know A LOT of you all) are not washing, conditioning and steaming your hair enough. Your hair is dry because of a lack of conditioning and cleansing. Because this is when you are truly hydrating your hair with water and it’s just not happening enough. The curls don’t last because of a lack of consist and frequent conditioning and cleansing. We know this because we transform every last one of our clients from dry curls that could not hold a nice style to Wash-N-Go die-hards who love their hair. Our 14 years of experience in natural hair has taught us that this is the most neglected part of being natural. After you get your product game up and see for yourself what great products will do for your beautiful hair, next you will need to add conditioning and steaming to your routine. You want to steam your hair every week. This may sound like a lot but take it from our weekly Urbanbella clients who will tell you that they have a different head of hair when they don’t steam. The styles puff up faster at the roots when they don’t steam and it is not as shiny as the style wears on. With steaming a style still looks great on day 7 as it did on day 2 and 3. We know professionally that we use less product on each style over time on clients who wash and steam on a weekly basis. Even just washing and deep conditioning weekly make a world of difference in how the hair behaves and handles. We recommend all of our clients invest in a steamer for home use and if you are saving up for a steamer use a heat cap in the meantime.
We challenge you to try each of these things. We guarantee that you will get better results with your hair and at the least learn more about what your hair needs.

Everything we've learned about looking after our natural hair keeps pointing back to the golden rule: That more moisture is good for our curls. So, going by that theory.. More humidity in the air is good, right?
Well, it might not be so clear-cut for us Naturalistas. Humidity can be a bit of a tricky one to navigate, as it can affect natural hair in different ways, depending on your curl type and characteristics. For some of us, humidity can bring a welcome boost of volume and dimension to our hair... But for others, it can unleash a world of frizz we never knew existed. Here's how to navigate the humidity for your natural hair type!
