I realised I use aot of acronyms in my posts so Ive thrown together a list of commonly used acronyms.
Hair Length Terms
EL: Ear length
NL: Neck length
SL: Shoulder length
APL: Arm Pit length
BSL: Bra Strap length
BSB: Below Shoulder Blade
MBL: Mid Back Length
BC (Big Chop): This is when you cut off the relaxed/permed ends of the hair leaving just your natural hair..
TWA( Teenie Weenie Fro): This refers to the hair that is left after a BC depending on what stage you Big Chopped.
Co-Wash: Washing hair using only a moisturizing conditioner. This is done because shampoo tends to strip hair of its natural oils.
Pre-poo: Prepping hair with conditioner, oils or treatments before washing your hair, as a way to reduce the ‘stripped’ feeling when using shampoo.
Sealing: After moisturizing hair, typically oils such such as coconut, olive oil, etc are used to seal the moisture into the hair.
