Living her Forties FIT & FABULOUSLY as:
An entrepreneur with a PASSION for all-things-natural hair | blogger | vlogger | a career woman with over 18 years work experience in HR and Management | ΔΣΘ | a constant seeker of knowledge/growth | a work-in-progress | and carrier of spirituality & peace at all times...well, at least the MAJORITY of the time! ツ
Talishia became 100% au naturale ("the big chop") in July 2010 after transitioning for six months. Her last relaxer was in November 2009 and the following month, she began this newfound relationship with her naturally tight coils. At the time, though she had NO idea what was in store for her, she definitively knew it was time to start the journey. Since, she has become PASSIONATE about wearing her hair in its natural state, using products that promote HEALTHY hair, bringing forth genuinely natural and cost-efficient products to "our" communities, and overall, sharing the ups, downs, & everything in between of her personal hair relationship. She sees this relationship as long-term & life-long and will continue to become more educated in the care of afro-textured hair, ultimately resulting in being seen as a POSITIVE example for all women of color who were born with tightly-coiled, afro-textured hair.
Her Journey to Coily Coiff, LLC...
Coily Coiff, LLC is founded and operated by Talishia L. Robins. Talishia earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Kansas State University (GOOOOOOO, STATE *\0/*), and has over 18 years experience in Human Resources, management, customer service, and an undeniable work ethic to match.
As a result of the spur-of-the-moment/late night "Big Chop" back in 2010, she has consistently made (D.I.Y.) three (3) products that, over time, have been tweaked and SOLELY used on her non-chemically treated hair since! Her goal then, (and now) was to care for her hair in the most organic, natural, and simplistic way possible. Through many trials, tribulations, and TRIUMPHS later, she is NOW sharing her "concoctions" with the WORLD! She proudly presents, the first two of these products, Coily Coiff Moisturizing Mist™ and Coily Coiff Shea Sealant™, officially released in February and March 2014. Soon to follow will be a styling product and accessories/merchandise, so please stay tuned!
