    I voted dry and natural. I also measure mine nekkid on top half That’s how I realised it was just at my waist, feeling the ends brush there on my back.

    I voted dry and natural, even though I brush it out before.

    Depends on how the milestone is easiest to detect.

    For example, BCL was easiest to determine with soaking wet hair in the shower, but classic is somehow really hard to measure that way.

    Dry and natural. It takes a bit of patience since just pulling the waves straight would get me there sooner. It just doesn't feel real to me that way.

    I feel undecided with this one... I measure my hair by pulling a lock of hair as lapushka described, but with the difference that I try to pull different locks to try to get a more accurate measurement, and I call my length milestones by that measure rather than where my hair falls visually. But then I also call my curly milestones only by where they fall visually. Also, I don't feel comfortable voting for "dry and straight" as it sounds like I straighten my hair to measure it which I don't.

    And I'm unsure what "Wet and Natural" and "Wet and straight" really mean? If you have naturally straight hair they are both the same, and if you have curly hair it depends on how straight and/or wet your hair is. I can get my hair completely straight if my head is under the shower head but as soon as there isn't more water pouring over my head my hair starts to curl, so it isn't either straight nor my natural texture.

    If I were to vote I think I'd vote dry and natural even if I stretch my hair to measure it Maybe all of them as I also check my length at all its states lol

    "Wet and natural" would be hair straight out of the shower, with whatever natural state your hair falls in.
    "Wet and straight" would be wet and brushed out.

    I don't measure at all. I judge length by a photo taken at the beginning of each new season, usually freshly washed and allowed to dry without manipulation. Since I have wavy hair, it's not consistent at all, but if my hair has grown, I can see the difference over time.

    Dry and straight (brushed/thoroughly combed out) when I first technically call it - i.e. that is how long my hair is - then dry and natural for 'fully' calling it - i.e. that is how long my hair looks.

    In practice that difference means when I first call it on here, then when I'm comfortable describing my hair as that length outside LHC (so if, hypothetically, someone asked to see it and I let my bun down, whether it would look that length or whether they'd think I was exaggerating).
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness
