At how many inches did you reach waist curly?

Following up on my other post on the board regarding when you reached BSL curly, I wanted to know at what length you reached curly waist? Please write down the length at which your hair is measured straight :smile:

Example: if my hair was straight, I would reach waist at 31" but because my hair is curly, I will have to grow an extra 3" to reach 34" (when pulled straight) to spring back to waist curly so I would choose 34". I hope that makes more sense!

    I haven't reach waist yet but I did a measure and it'll be there at 32" inches. I picked 33 because I clicked the wrong one.:happy6:

    I'm not sure unstretched.

    I have reached it once, but I was 11.
    I measured it and I will reach it at 25.59 inch.

    I feel like I'm discriminating against shorter people and people with small torsos! I only had ten choices unfortunately but this is the last time I think up a poll at midnight haha.

    I didn't think you were discriminating. It's a great poll.

    Maybe people misunderstood. My BSL is probably at around 25 inches. But, if I have 25 incches of hair, it won't reach my waist because it will shrink and be shorter. I think some are just measuring where BSL is and not thinking about needing a few more inches of hair than their actual BSL area to get there due to shrinkage.

    I know I need waist length hair stretched to hit BSL dry.

    My niece is 6 and her hair is bsl, but its tail bone when straightened. We have a similar shrinkage amount so my hair will have to be classical straight to pop up to my waist when dry. wick will be around 35-40 inches.

    I edited my post as I realised that I wasn't very clear the first time around. I am like you in that my hair will have to be waist length when it is straight at 30" to 31" to reach BSL curly and hip length to bounce up to waist curly. I am guessing for my hair to bounce up to waist curly, it will have to about 34" to 35" when pulled straight but I just wanted to get an idea of how long people had to grow their hair to bounce back to either BSL or waist :smile:
