Being natural has become a way of life for some and there is terminology that we all need to know (as if keeping up with products and technique wasn’t hard enough)! So here is a short and sweet lesson to expand your natural hair vocabulary.
TWA – Teenie Weenie Afro
BSL – Bra Strap Length
Transitioning – The period of time since your last relaxer
BC – Big Chop (cutting off all of your relaxer)
Co-Wash – Skipping shampoo and cleaning your hair with conditioner.
EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
These are just a few of my favorite and most used terms. Hopefully this helps some of you ladies who are NN (Newly Natural) or thinking about going natural!!
