View Full Version : LHC slang- a thread suggestion

January 20th, 2015, 01:04 PM
Howdy everyone- i was thinking about something. I see alot of slang thats used between members that maybe alot of the new members or even some of the returning members dont know. I was wondering if we can make a slang thread for all of the terms we use. like wcw, cowashing, ficcare, lcc, search and destroy. I figured we could use photos for the hairtoys and links for alot of it. and for different oil types and how they help the hair

Just a suggestion. :) dont know many terms myself otherwise i'd have a better opening thread

Peppermint oil- usually mixed with another oil to put on the scalp to encourage bloodflow

Search and destroy- a method of trimming your ends by looking carefully at the end of the hair and snipping off ONLY the splits.

Shampoo bar- a type of soap bar used on hair with the goal of cleansing without stripping hair.

This may help, it's a thread I made a few months after I joined the board back a few years ago. I update it periodically, you can find it on the sticky called "index to important threads" on the Mane forum.

It's also in the common questions thread on Site Support, linked to in my signature. :) PrincessBob's thread is a great resource!
