Is there a page or thread that lists ALL the acronyms? I don't know what CG orSLS means, not to mention many others. I find new unknown acronyms every day.
Thank you!

I've been seeing FIA and "ii" in people's signatures. I saw that "iii" meant thick...so does "ii" mean medium? Have no clue what FIA is, only that it has something to do with curl ratings.
I keep referring back to this list--it's a perma-tab in my browser now. Thanks for putting it together.

Can't find SSCEJ in the list and I keep coming across that one today. What is it?

Edit. Figured it out - http://www.curlmart.com/Spiral-Solut...ly-p-1070.html

Everyone seems to know but me. Hate that.
Can the definition of "low-poo" and "no poo" be added? I'm still not sure what those mean.

"Low-Poo" means using a gentle shampoo - one that does not contain sulfates, but may contain gentler ingredients, like Sulfosuccinate or Cocamidopropyl Betaine. Some examples are Burt's Bees, Giovanni, or Nature's Gate.

Does "sticky" mean?

For example, at the top of the forum page Newbies/introductions, there are 5 Sticky's - Acronyms/Abbreviations/Definitions, Start Here, Poll, Useful Curly Links, and FAQ. These threads will always stay at the top of that forum, for easy access.

Hope that helps!!

Anyone know what ps or psing mean? I've seen the term used a lot in this forum and many others as well.
