    Arrow Glossary Of Terms And Acronyms The Nappturality Way

    When I first joined Napprturality my vocabulary of nappturality acronyms was quite meager. It took me a little while to get a good grasp. The same questions I had about what they meant come up quite regularly too as it may be answered for one person but then get lost in the shuffle somewhere.

    So this is my contribution to help the newbies (a running list maintained by moderators):

    Hair Related
    BAA - Big A$$ Afro
    BC - Big Chop - i.e. cutting off all your chemically treated hair
    Blow out - blow dry
    EVOO - extra virgin olive oil (yeah the one from the grocery store :P )
    nappyversary - the anniversary of the day you became a napptural
    napptural - means natural :P if you still have permed ends (even a 1/2 ") you aren't there yet. Your state of mind may contribute to your level of nappturalness too.
    scab hair - when u first go natural, you hair has sometimes been affected by the relaxer that has seeped into the follicle. scab hair is dry, crispy sometimes, and doesnt repsond to products, usually needing to be deep conditioned more and eventually trimmed off
    TWA - teeny weeny afro (some say "teeny weeny afro" some say "TWA")
    twist out - two strand twist, dry, loosen, figer comb to style
    PHHB = Panty Hose Head Band
    The kitchen area - the back of your hair towards the nape of your neck...
    Transitioning - period of time since last relaxer before going natural. Transitioners count from the date of their last chemical treatment.
    CNAPP - someone with napps that feel like cotton

    Processes/treatments
    No Poo - washing with conditioners
    CO - Condition Wash/No-Poo
    DC - deep condition

    Products/Mixes
    ACV rinse - apple cider vinegar rinse--diluted to about 1:10 vinegar to water (or some variation)
    eo - essential oil
    DDTA - Daily Defense Tender Apple Conditioner
    MA - Mane Attraction (Products by Seoul)
    SK - Sun Kissed (product by Seoul)
    poo bar - shampoo bar
    AVG - aloe vera gel
    CDHHB - Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter
    EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    CON - Creme of Nature
    FOEAVG - Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel
    RMEO - rosemary essential oil
    OO - olive oil
    Creamy Crack - Relaxer
    PJ - Product Junky

    DH - dear husband/hubby
    DD - dear daughter
    DS - dear son
    MIL - mother in law
    TLC - tender loving care


    It's amazing how I forget them when I try to make a list of them. As I run into more I will edit this list.

    Feel free to add more 'cause I know there are more out there for me to learn.

    ***Disclaimer***
    I am relatively new too so school me where necessary (with a loving approach, preferably :wub: )
