Whether you live the Coif’d Life or not. Mental 🧠 Health is very important 🙏🏽. Coif’d Tresses celebrates October 10th as WORLD WIDE MENTAL HEALTH DAY. Health in general is very important. In order to live life with few complications, being healthy is essential. In order to be healthy it is said to start healthy practices. Immediately we all think about physical exercise 👀. When someone mentions MENTAL HEALTH. Being crazy, psycho, or having a disability comes to mind for many. But, when you think about it - there is more to a person than just the physical. From a child we are a 4 part series. Emotional, Physical, Spiritual, and Mental. When these 4 parts are aligned we find balance. How you think effects and affects your perception and therefore your reality. When you involve healthy practices in your life, shift will happen so change can take root in your destiny. Your mind is the computer for your body. Things that we attempt to bury or hide emotionally, physically, or spiritually is a mental choice. But even our minds have a limit, no matter how much we choose to conceal or celebrate. It all starts with the mind. Take care of your Emotional Health, Physical Health, Spiritual Health, and most importantly your MENTAL HEALTH. Note Just because it's normal to you or it is something that has always been done. Doesn't mean it's the the only way, the best way, or healthiest way. If you or someone you know feels defeated, mentally exhausted, or just stuck, there are resources below that can help. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> - BE WELL LINE (866-389-3046) - TAKE 2 MINUTES - If you can't talk you can text the CRISIS HOTLINE. - NAMI - MENTAL HEALTH - For the Veterans you can text or call the veterans hotline - How is your mental health? Check the results of your health mentally. ◀️◀️◀️◀️◀️◀️ You are not crazy for seeking guidance. You are not weak for wanting answers. You are not hopeless for seeking help. You are BRAVE. Sending you love💗, light🌄, support☎️, and peace☮️. - COIF'D LOVE 🌹You are worth your happy ending.🌹 -STAY COIF'D 😘-

HAIR As simple as HAIR may seem, this 4 letter word can be soooo much more complex. Anyone who is into hair can agree, when it comes to professional and personal verbiage in and out of salon consultations or just friendly advice. Hair can be .. well.. a bit much. There are 3 very important things to understand about your hair. Density – Texture – Hair Type / Pattern These 3 terms are so quickly intermingled and blended that it can have many people confused. But don't worry CT understands and we are in this together ! IS YOUR MIND A LITTLE DENSE ABOUT THE TERM DENSITY? It’s ok we were all there once upon a time. Allow CT to clear things up for you. The simplest way to describe density is the thickness of your hair. Density relates to the thickness or fullness of an area. Picture this…. You’re flying over a beautiful rain forest full of majestic trees . When you look down you see small trees, big trees and medium sized trees but, what you can’t see is the is the forest floor. When your stylist conducts a consultation you may hear the word DENSITY. The only difference is the stylist is observing the density (fullness) of your hair per square inch vs a forest floor. In professional observation, the density on your head varies by area, so the average person’s density per square inch could be 50% to 120%. The hair around the front of your hair line is usually thinner because of the physical manipulation of brushing or combing versus the crown ( middle ) of your head that receives less manipulation. DENSITY is 1 of the 3 most important platforms that determine how the style of your choice will turn out. If you have thin density, having a style that requires a lot of volume can be a challenge. But that's what hairspray, teasing, and extensions are for 😘. Let’s talk texture… WHAT’S THE CONTEXT OF YOUR TEXTURE ? FINE, MEDIUM, and COARSE pertains to the width of the hair strand itself. Now let’s NOT get TEXTURE confused with DENSITY. You can have fine hair, with a thick density. If you're looking like this ⤵️ Don't worry .. When it comes to understanding the terms FINE, MEDIUM, and COARSE correctly – things can get a little …well ..nerve wrecking.. Remember the rainforest story that we mentioned previously, along with the trees being small, medium, and big? Well the trees in the rainforest correlate directly with your hair. Although the forest seems to be very dense ( thick ) – the individual trees could be small, medium, or large ( in hair terms – fine, medium, or coarse). WHAT PATTERN IS YOUR TYPE OF TEXTURE? Hair pattern or hair type as people call it, references the movement in your hair strand. Whether your hair is silky straight, luxuriously wavy, or independently curly, you have a hair pattern / hair type. There are multiple variation of curls and waves for every culture around the world. Some of you may wonder could you have multiple density, textures and curl patterns in your hair. The answer is YES. The hair around the front of your hair line vs the crown ( middle ) of your head vs the nape can seem like completely different areas, especially when styling. Now let's dive deeper... HAIR TYPES belong to 4 main groups HAIR TYPE 1, HAIR TYPE 2, HAIR TYPE 3, HAIR TYPE 4 HAIR TYPE 1 being the straightest and HAIR TYPE 4 being the curliest. Within all the Hair Types are variations which determine the amount of curl or wave in each hair strand. These variations are placed in order, beginning from A TO C. Variation A having the least amount of curl / wave. Variation C having the tightest curl / wave. For example. Hair Type 2A is less wavy than Hair Types 2b & 2C. HAIR TYPE 1A HAIR TYPE 4A HAIR TYPE 1 STRAIGHT TO SLIGHTLY WAVY HAIR TYPE 2 WAVY TO SLIGHTLY CURLY HAIR TYPE 3 CURLY TO SLIGHTLY COILY HAIR TYPE 4 COILY Why Does This Happen? The only answer CT has is GENETICS passed down from your ancestors. All of these factors make the perfect you. Make sure to share 😘 - Stay Coif'd!

Focus on your goal(s). The obstacle(s) are a diversion. No one and nothing ever became great if a challenge didn’t position itself conveniently in the way of greatness. Consider This. Your ”obstacle(s)” is the teacher you didn’t ask for but need in order to achieve that next level. Greatness Is a journey - not a destination. There is no cap on being greater. For whoever learned their strength(s) without being faced with their weakness(es). Everything has a place and a space. But It’s up to you to decide what you will make room for. Keep your eye on the goal.

I hope you guys, gals, everything in between and in the scene are ready for the season of SUMMER!! COIF’D TRESSES celebrates JUNE in observance of PRIDE. Black Pride! LGBT Pride! Self-Pride! Father Pride! One thing is for certain and two things are for sure, when we speak about family, love, acceptance and support of one another they are all essential pieces of unity in all communities. PRIDE This 5 letter word has such a profound meaning. As a people we have come too far from where we began. So now. In June. We CELEBRATE. We Celebrate JUNETEENTH for the enslaved community of the past and their descendant's that fought, endured and celebrated for a vision that many didn't get to experience. We also celebrate Juneteenth for the future of the Afro-American communities and the like across America. Giving reverence to the ancestor's, awareness to ourselves and wonderful plans for generations to come. Never forgetting the past in order to ensure a better future. We Celebrate PRIDE for the LGBTQ community that endures social prejudices who have fought and continue to fight for equality. In their own resilience this community has managed to be seen and heard throughout other communities, continuing to celebrate Love for self and Love for one another. We Celebrate FATHER'S for all the men who CHOOSE to be a creator, a leader, a supporter, a guide. Being a pillar of strength and vision in families all around the world. To the father’s around the world - whether you are the biological father or not, you know who you are. Coif’d Tresses sees you and celebrates you! JUNE holds many CELEBRATIONS. Coif'd Tresses interprets the month of June as the year's season of reflection, transition, and change. So let’s not just love one another, but uplift ourselves in the process.

May we remember the importance of Mental Health Awareness. Your mind is a terrible thing to waste and it is essential that we remain balanced emotionally and mentally. LIFE. Such a small word that has such a profound meaning. CT knows life gets tough, and for many that‘s a understatement. Coif’d love is here to reassure you that you are not alone although you may feel like it sometimes. There are an estimated 7,846,000,000 people in the world right now and most of them have 2 ears. My point & my advice. Don’t hold yourself mentally and emotionally hostage. Find someone to talk to. Get those inner feels out and get your life back the way you deserve! You are worth more than losing who you are to a temporary moment. You are so important. ☝And you have a purpose... What that purpose is exactly ? It is a secret 🤫 whispered to your core by the universe. It is my understanding the more balanced you are the more that is revealed to you. That’s right love. 😉 Keeping you in check allows the universe to keep you on track! YOU are WORTH your end results!! KEEP your head up, and balanced. KEEP your heart wise. KEEP YOU. - STAY COIF’D - 😘

CREATOR - TEACHER - THERAPIST -MATRIARCH - QUEEN- COUNSELOR... If you could take all of these words and make them into a person, we would still need more words to describe your detrimental importance to us as a human race. You are our light in the darkness. Our healer when we are sick. Our SuperHero when we are in need of saving. You never stop nurturing us, because to you, we will always be your baby 😅. Sometimes, it's easy to forget your own majesty in loving and sacrificing for others. You may even forget your favorite foods, your favorite colors, your sense of style or what it feels like to dress up and go out on a date if you choose to. It's the small things that lead up to the biggest sacrifices that are lost because of how and what you prioritize. You. Are. A. Miracle Worker. The Creator of birthing many nations. Little girls are watching and learning the ways of your footsteps in order to understand how to be a woman. How to be loved, how to love, how to survive, how to live, how to grow... Little boys watch you just as much. You are their first love. You teach them not only how to treat a woman but what to look for in a companion. Heavy is head that wears the crown and strong is the neck that uplifts the head. Many people couldn't last a day in your shoes. You have earned that crown. You are admired even when you don't see it. You are our star. Our Queen. LOVE is an action word. Love is shown by what is done, not by what is said. Love. Is. You. One day of dedication can not make up for all of the years that you chose to love us. Mother. Mama. Madre. Mère. Mām. Jananī. Uwa. Nne. Makuahine. Máthair. Manman. Oni. Ummi. We love you. - COIF'D LOVE

In the society that we develop in as people, most of us are taught consciously or unconsciously that selflessness is more attractive than being selfish. There is beauty in both. LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. I believe that being selfish is important for you to understand and appreciate the value in something before allowing someone to depreciate the very thing that you should value. If you are taught to always be selfless it is my idea that you are not giving yourself the time or the space to truly get all what you should receive out of that person, place or thing that you are blessed with. I remember reading in a book, this passage about 2 parents having an intense discussion about their children and how one parent‘s child wouldn’t allow the other parent’s child to play with the child’s new toys. This was of course at the child’s birthday party. When the child opened up all of her new toys the dad told her to take them to her room. He was asked, why he wouldn’t allow little Stacey to let the other children play with her toys, isn’t that teaching her to be selfish? Dad said with a smirk.. of course. 😌 “ I want my daughter to learn the value of her own things and then when she is ready to choose to share, she can share. It is essential for her to learn to appreciate and take care of her own gifts before allowing another person who may be too excited, careless, or jealous break them. This is a tool that she can carry for the rest of her life when it comes to not only having value for herself, but for others. Plus. It’s her birthday and there are plenty toys and games that the kids can unleash their energy on.” This small passage opened my eyes to a new understanding. I had to learn to be selfish in order to understand the beauty of being selfless. Being selfish is only negative when you are depriving others of what you can give without harming yourself. The positivity that you show to others you should show to yourself first. Be Selfish with you. Be Kind to yourself so that you may be kind to others. Be Patient with yourself so that you may be patient with others. Channel the energy of discernment so that you can know who is worth your time and who isn’t. 1. Discernment is the ability to make proper judgement- to have understanding or insight of something. Nothing worth learning is going to happen overnight. So Learn. LEARN TO BE KIND TO YOURSELF. YOU ARE WORTH EXPERIENCING YOUR OWN LOVE. 💗 STAY COIF’D. - COIF’D LOVE

Coif’d Love has the answer. Here at Coif’d Tresses variety is a necessity. There is a place for everyone to feel at home. Our Coif’d Collection belongs to our Virgin Hair extension line , and Coif’d Elite belongs to our Raw hair extension line. We receive a lot of questions on what is the difference between the two and with 3 snaps in the air we say, ” We are Here. For. You.” VIRGIN HAIR Virgin Hair, Remy Hair, it is said that they are all the same. Let me break it down for you. Virgin hair is not chemically processed and can be collected from 2 to 3 donors in each bundle(s). All cuticles of the hair are aligned from root to end as it would be growing from your own head which is what is known as “remy quality”. When properly managed, virgin Remy hair can last you for over 2 years. Our Coif’d line is 100% Virgin Remy Human Hair. RAW HAIR Let’s speak Raw! Raw hair is similar to Virgin Hair except Raw Hair is one donor per bundle(s). The Quality is higher such as the price. But! It's worth the investment. Raw hair, when properly managed will last you for over 3 years. I have seen it last for longer. Our Coif’d Elite line is 100% Raw Remy Human Hair. THE SECRET… … to the Longevity of your Tresses is 3PT. Patience, Proper products and Tools. Hair is an investment, so you must make sure that you are purchasing product that is complimentary to the hair texture you have invested in. For example, hair at Coif’d Tresses is Asian ( India, Mongolia, Burma, Malyasian) Pacific Island and South American in origin. Using products that are solely complimentary for African American Hair can decrease the longevity of your tresses life. Why? The oil content in some African American products can cause build up on the hair and weigh it down, creating a dull appearance or increase the chance of matting at the ends and throughout the length of your tresses. I, Coif’d Love received specialized training on Virgin and Raw Hair and what is Remy quality, so I will never lead you astray.. - Stay Coif’d!
