Default Definitions of Abbreviations?

Hi! I am brand new and can't find anywhere on here that tells what HG, KCCC, and many other abbreviations used in these threads stand for. I can tell when one is short for a particular product, but HG? LOL Is there a list somewhere?

Thanks!

Some of the definitions are in the FAQ: http://www.naturallycurly.com/faqs

HG is Holy Grail. A product you can depend on to work well.

AOHR = Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose
AOWC = Aubrey Organics White Camilla
B&A = Batia & Aleeza gel
BRHG = Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee
FOTE = Fruit of the Earth Aloe gel
GDLI = Giovanni Direct Leave-In
HEBE = Herbal Essence Body Envy
HESMU = Herbal Essence Set Me Up
HETT = Herbal Essence Totally Twisted
JC ??? = Jane Carter ______________ fill in the blank
JC C&S = Jane Carter Condition & Sculpt
JC N&S = Jane Carter Nourish & Shine
KCCC = Kinky Curly Curling Custard
KCKT = Kinky Curly Knot Today
QCCC = Innersence Quite Calm Curling Cream
HIH = Devacurl Heaven in Hair
TIGI = TIGI is the brand name. They make the Bed Head line.
TIGI MM = TIGI Moisture Maniac
TJ = Trader Joe's
SIF = Devacurl Set It Free
OC = Devacurl One Condition


That's all I can think of right now. Most of the product appreviations are not on the FAQ list because they change so often and people make up their own. If you're ever in a thread with an appreviation you don't know just post and ask. Most people don't mind.

Like kathymack has already said there is a list of abbreviations commonly used on this site, but they dont have many product abbrieviations.
I had a lot of trouble with this too (and still do sometimes). What I would usually do is do a search for the abbreviation (if it is long enough, the search engine isnt great). You can usually figure it out from that.
(And kitara listed most of them too)

Thank you all for your helpful replies! KathyMack, I had looked at the CurlTalk FAQs and couldn't figure out how I was missing the list, so I appreciate your link to the Home ones.
