What does DoC stand for?

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!

SLS = Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (surfactant found in most conventional shampoos), and can also refer to Sodium Laureth Sulfate. I don't know of any one page /thread that has every conceivable abbreviation or acronym, but there's a product terms glossary, and you can always Google the term along with Curltalk to figure it out ("SLS curltalk" for instance), or just ask. People are usually happy to explain. Also, the FAQ page has some as well.

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.

What is Ll and CC?

You might see a thread where someone asks about KT or CC, in which case they mean Kinky Curly Knot Today or Kinky Curly Curling Custard.

Everyone seems to know but me. Hate that.

I love the site, but not the abbreviations. Its like a part time job trying to remember them all and I don't have that kind of time available so sadly I miss lots of the information on the posts since I don't know what the abbreviations mean.
Thanks!
This thread has been very helpful thank you so much!!
I'm trying to find out what some abbreviations mean.
I know they are brands.

AIF
CJCQ
CJ CIAB
UFD's CM
MD yoqurt smoothy cream (Does MD stand for anything?)
CHI iron guard (Does CHI stand for anything?)

I was also wandering if anyone could tell me some places to buy some of their products. I know target and Curl mart. Any others?

Thank You!!
