At what time of the month do you do it? Do you measure it wet or dry? Stretched or not?

    Whenever I remember to do a length check I do it when I flat iron.

    Somewhere in the middle. (Mid-june was an arbitrary starting point). I measure wet, but unstretched, from crown to front, side and back

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I measure it wet, stretched, and dry unstretched since that is the length I really care about. I did the latter only for a long time but after several months of showing no growth I started doing both so I could more accurately "see" my progress.

    But remembering to measure wet is hard sometimes, since I do everything upside down then straight to the microfiber towel. Oh and I don't remember to measure every month.
