When I first started my Healthy Hair Journey (HHJ), I had no clue what the hair length terminology was, but I found these charts that tells you where one length begins, and ends, and the abbreviations for it, which I think is important to know if you are or plan to be on any hair blogs or forums.So here are a couple of charts I use to judge my length, which makes it easier, since some people, like myself, do not measure by inches.
Some other Termonology that may be used on Forums, I found them really confusing when I just started out, so I thought I'd compile some of the common ones.
ACV- Apple Cider Vinegar
BC- Big Chop
BHP- Black Hair Planet (Forum)
BHM- Black Hair Media (Forum)
BSS- Beauty Supply Store
BUMP(ING)- You write this in a thread you create, or when you want to push (bump) a/your topic to the top so it can stay active, and be visible to other posters to see, or get a response
CO- Castor Oil or Coconut Oil
CON- Cream of Nature
DB- Dear Boyfriend
DD- Dear Daughter
DG- Dear Girlfriend
DH- Dear Husband
DS- Dear Son
DF- Dear Fiance/Fiancee (basically if there is a D before letters B,D,G, and F, it means dear lol)
DIY- Do It Yourself
DUSTING- It is when you trim a such a tiny amount, it falls/resembles dust
EVCO- Extra Virgin Castor Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
EVOO- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
