September Measure in

cymprenicympreni Posts: 9,609Registered Users Curl Neophyte
They do this on other long hair boards so why not here? Not everyone measures at the same time, but it's not like this has a high risk of getting lost in posts.

So for me:

29 1/2 inches wet
26 1/2 dry
my hair was pretty stretched out when I measured it dry so I may redo. My last measure was in may so that's 1 1/2 inches growth since then

thickness 3 1/2 inches which makes 1 1/2 inch of thickness gained for me in the last 1 1/2 years.

(thickness measurement not necessary, but I am recovering from a long massive shedding phase, and that is where I see most of my progress with the new growth)

    My hair is 27 inches stretched. In order for my hair to rech BSL curly it has to be 39inches stretched.

    I'm just measuring new growth. Right now I have 1" of new growth in 6 weeks. Is that considered a good growth rate??

    average growth rate is 1/2 inch a month so not bad.

    Where do you start measuring from?

    The Hair Loom website says to measure from your forehead straight back to the ends on your back (or neck).

    Measuring that way, I'm 13.5" for September 2007.

    You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving North.
