CG = Curly Girl method. Avoiding sulfates and silicones in haircare products, cleansing with conditioner. See here. 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.

FIA is a system for typing hair /curls. i, ii, and iii are measures of hair's density, thin, medium, and thick, respectively.

LI = Leave In conditioner. Not sure on CC. Could be Ouidad's Climate Control gel, or a very shortened form of Kinky Curly Curling Custard (usually abbreviated KCCC). 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.

When editing your signature, you should see with a dropdown arrow directly to the right of it. Highlight the text you want to colorize, click that dropdown arrow, and choose your new color.

Not positive, but FHG is likely Spiral Solutions Firm Hold Gel, which can also be abbreviated as SSFHG.

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.

Could you maybe mean SMCES? If so, that's SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.
