Smile You Rock !

Thank you so much, it took me forever to find out what BRHG stood for last month. And I love the product, I finally found the "perfect gel". Your work is very appreciated, and I know many others will love that it's available now.

I felt the same way, which is EXACTLY why I started the thread. Glad I could help!

"Your millage may vary." It's not really a hair acronym.

Default Info for newbies

I know this is an old thread. But, I am a newbie and it has helped me so much. I printed out all the info and put it in a folder. I am getting better at understanding what the abbreviations mean, but I still look at my list often.

Thanks!

I'd go to the Aubrey Organics website and see if you can figure it out from there. I'm not aware of that one myself.

Ah, not so much an abbreviation, as just a random name for a product :P

the full name is Paul Brown Gelatine Goo Styling Gel, I believe.

I'm not sure what AVC stands for
ACV = Apple Cider Vinegar
AVG = Aloe Vera Gel
