Diffusing is using your blow dryer w/ a bowl like attachment to it.. you collect your hair up into the bowl and the warm air circulates thru it. Virus using the direct nozzle on the dryer on your hair which causes frizz.

Thanks so much!
This really helped, I've been wondering what certain abbreviations were and the place in the FAQ section of the site only has so many.

Thanks so much for this thread! It drives me crazy when I don't know what an acronym or abbreviation means.

And I'm glad to know that LOOB isn't what I thought it was.

Stylers generally help your hair get where it needs to be. In example curl boosting gels, cremes, etc.

Finishers are simply products that help your hair stay there for the long run. Those would be your sprays, spritzes, etc.

Going off topic. It replaced the phrase "hijack the thread" after 9/11.

Thumbs up

Many thanks from a newbie for this great list!
I've bookmarked this one for sure!
Couldn't figure out what AVG meant!
Now I can get started on this jojoba gel recipe I saw in some other thread.... Yay!

It's actually guano I believe. So off topic = poop.

I don't think this has been added, maybe because it's so obvious for you native English speaking people

OP- original poster

I guessed that it had something to do with the first post in the thread, but i didn't know the exact meaning, now I do .
