Natural hair terms you should know!

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!!
