Question about searches

I'd like to look up information specific to 2c hair, but when I try to search for "2c" I get the response that it is under the minimum word length. Is there any other way to search for 2c? Going page by page searching for "2c" in the title is taking me a long time!

Thanks!

    I learned this trick from a hockey forum that I moderate that uses the same software.

    Use asterisks as "wildcards" before and after your short phrase. If you search for *2c*, that tells the software to look for anything with 2c in it at any point in the word.

    The general idea is that you can use it to search for "word variations" in a single step. For example, if you wanted to search for curl, curls, curly, curli, curli-q, or curlie, doing a search for curl* will give you every instance of curl with any combination (or nothing at all) behind it.

    Hope that helps!
