Thanks for joining me as I walked you through my Wash-N-Go on Facebook Live this week. With the pandemic keeping all of us indoors, our hair is having to go that extra mile while we’re relying completely on home hair styling. Not sure about all of you, but I’m personally counting down the days until I can get back to the salon for a much-needed trim!
So, in the meantime... Each week when I wash my hair, I’m doing it live in front of you all so you can get some tips and ideas. The most important thing I’d like to emphasize is that these current times are actually letting us get a greater understanding of our own hair, as we’re all home styling right now and working with what we’ve got. I find it’s always helpful to see somebody else’s process and then use that information to make adaptations for your own hair… So I hope you’ll enjoy the journey of learning with me and gaining a deeper understanding on what makes our hair tick.
For those of you who missed it, here’s a roundup of my top tips from my DIY Wash-N-Go, plus what I’ve learned so far about doing my hair at home…
With all this close observation of what I’m doing to my hair, I’m establishing a good baseline on what works for my hair and what doesn’t. Here’s some revelations from this week, and some areas for improvement I noticed:
Each week your hair might have different requirements in your styling product performance, and some adjustments that need to be made to get the best result. Your hair might be a little drier than usual, or there could be some weather forecasted that needs an extra level of defense to keep those curls looking defined. No matter what your week has in store, we’ve got you covered. I’ve formulated a range of different styling products here at Urbanbella, so you can mix and match them with confidence. With the right cocktail of stylers, you can achieve the exact result your hair needs to look its best. Here’s your quick guide to choosing the perfect combination for your most show stopping curls:
After seeing how my hair behaved last week, on Wash Day this week I made some changes to tweak how much volume my hair has and get a longer lasting style for the week ahead.
Teaching techniques that minimize shrinkage is a key part of the Urbanbella Salon experience. The good news is, we can still minimize shrinkage on our hair at home with a few tricks. I demonstrated a technique that always works for me, and simply involves a little strategic clipping!
I credit my well-hydrated hair to the regular steam treatments I do, and I highly recommend you try steaming to see noticeable results in your hair too. Here’s how to get the most out of your steaming session:
Watching the video playback, I noticed a couple of key points that I’ll be adjusting and making improvements on next week, plus some results I was really happy with that I’ll be sure to do again! What a unique perspective, to get to see the process and actually see the back of my head as I was doing it to find out where I can change things up for an even better result next week. If you’re not filming your styling session and watching how you do things on the back of your hair like I did, don’t worry- because you can still take away some of my lessons I learned. Here’s what I noticed after watching the video again:

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!
