That's just what I came on this thread to look for! Think it means big chop (when previously relaxed hair is cut off). Saw it on the previous page.

I saw the transformation of your hair on fokti.. amazing! And you use only 3 products? I'm so interested in the smoothie conditioner and flax gelee.

Update: I am hoping for some recommendations from you. So I will try to email you tonight through botecelli botanicals on esty. Thanks!

What does EO stand for that everyone is finding at Marshall's & TjMaxx stores for what appears to be a steal of a deal?

EO is a brand name (it is technically short for essential oils but the company uses it as its brand name):

"Bump" is what happens when we want to revive an old thread and get people talking about it again. When we post with the word "bump," we're basically saying that we want to move a thread to the top of the list in whatever section it's in on this page:

It refers to a hooded dryer that was sold at Sally Beauty. I can't remember the exact brand/model though, I'll see if I can find a link about it or something though.
