Vocabulary???

When I first became acquainted with the natural community there were so many new words flying about I was so confused.

BC-Big chop. When you cut off all of your relaxed ends and begin your natural hair journey.

TRANSITIONING. You have decieded against the big chop and your just allowing your relaxed ends to grow out instead of cutting them all off.

TWA- Teenie Weenie Afro. A small afro.

CO-WASH. Washing your hair with conditioner.

DEEP CONDITIONER- Many people use heat to deep condition, but it is a means of conditioning the scalp as well as the hair.

PRE-POO. A pre-shampoo treamtned which helps protect your hair from the harsh shampooing process. Source

BUILD UP- The accumilation of products on your scalp and in your hair.

I hope this helped.
