5 TIPS to the Perfect Wash-N-Go with Urbanbella Hair Gels
Urbanbella’s Wash-N-Go Tips for 4C Curls
1.Use creams that contain high amounts of oil and holding power. The oil keeps the hair looking feeling good and flexible while the holding power allows the style to last.
2.Gels work better for 4C Natural Hair Curls because it can get into the grooves of the hair texture more easily resulting in better-looking curl definition.
3. Type 4C Natural Hair tends to feel drier more quickly. Weekly washing keeps hair more supple and soft.
4. This is a hard one, It may seem like a lot but we recommend weekly steam conditioning treatments. We have found that the most hydrated natural hair gets the best Wash-N-Go. This is extremely key for Type 4 Naturals as our curls tend to be drier.
5. Getting a professional trim or cut makes textured hair easy to comb and manage. Trims are great for maintaining cuts and should be done 2-4 times a year depending on your style (tapered cuts every 6 weeks to keep it cute).
Founder Keneesha Hudson actually keeps her natural hair routine simple...maintain her haircut, weekly wash and steam and Urbanbella Wash-N-Go set.
Each new gel she creates is designed to make it easy to be natural.
Is there a woman who hasn’t grabbed her go to cream styler from the local drugstore rushed home to try it out only to have the same dry wash-n-go that looked dull and frizzy after a few hours? “Getting your hands on quality products is the name of game no matter what. Shiny, defined curls that last are dependent on this critical factor,” said Keneesha Hudson, Cheif Formulator and founder of the Urbanbella Brands who’s gotten her 4C Curls to be the best they have ever been using her go to Urbanbella Gel Cre'gel.
We understand your frustration... you walk into Target or Walmart and you are greeted by a sea of bottles and you're looking for the one that the YouTuber said to try. Only problem is you KNOW you don't have hair like her and it's the fifth different product she has recommended. It's confusing and frustrating and you don't know what to actually believe. Urbanbella is the only company that is using our products on thousands of naturals NOT trying thousands of products on just ourselves” What's the difference you wonder? It means that we know that I product works on the tightest Type 4C Curls and loose Type 3 Curls because we use it on thousands of women every year in our salon.
So How are the Gels Different from Each Other?
Hydration Level - The gels are all made based upon salon customers issues with their hair. Because we see a large variety of natural hair types we see a large variety of different moisture needs. We have found that if that hydration level is right for your hair you can eliminate problems like flaking and dryness and you get styles to last for quite a while.
Softness - While most of our gels do provide hydration we have varying degrees of hold in each product. This impacts how soft the gel feels on your hair once it is dry.
Fragrance and Non-Fragrance - We decided to offer our most popular gel in an Unscented option for our customers and later we created the Urbanbella Neat Collection which contains two gels Extra Firm Hold and Extra Soft Hold both Unscented.
Here is a list of all gels in order of softest to firmest

What people are saying about us...
"I’ve been natural for 2 years now and I have spent hundreds of dollars trying to find products that work “the way I want them to” on my hair. I have some that I like but I have finally found this product and i love it. My goal was to be able to wash and go, have rediculas shine and definitions while being able to not have to worry where I lean my head because of oil/product transfer. This is it! The definition and shine, dry and wet is short of miraculous considering that it is not oily or greasy. I can now lay my head on my sofa and pillows and not worry. This is my new staple and I can’t imagine living without it."
My friend recently purchased this and allowed me to try it out. I have thin, fine hair, so my hair is manageable, but I stopped wearing wash n’ go due to NEVER having decent day 2 hair. Plus I have to go through the stretching process with the diffuser dryer. It’s a pain after a while. Anyway, I tried it out, and “Hello”! Pull through was silky smooth, shrinkage was minimal, and are you ready? I finally have day 2 hair without rewetting and starting all over again the next morning. No dryer. No stretching. Yay! There is a bit of a crunch, but that’s easily addressed with a little fluffing. I also used the Hydrating Moisture Cream to combat the crunchiness caused by the gel portion. The floral smell is also a bit strong. But I would strongly recommend this for wash n’ go for sure. I’m back to easy living and looking good!
I have been using this product for seven months and I LOVE what this gel does for my coils! Wonderful wash and gos that are shiny and defined as well as awesome twist outs. Kaneesha Hudson put an end to the myth with this product that type 4 Curl Girls cannot do wash n gos!
i don’t usually write reviews about products, but this one certainly deserves one. It is so far the best product that I have ever used for a wash and go and i have type 4 hair. It’s moisturizing, it has so much slip, the application is so easy especially because it has a pump. Curl definition is popping!! but with a soft hold! Amazing because not many products can do that! I will definitely be repurchasing this product and I recommend it to everyone no matter what your natural hair type is! oh and it smells Amazing!!! last but not least it does not take the whole day to dry! Amazing! Amazing! I’m looking forward to try the # 54 gel from them!
