    The 2 aunts with thick hair, 1 has a daughter with medium thickness, and the other has 2 daughters, 1 thin, 1 thick.

    And then I have thick hair too, just not as thick, just 4.25", so that's barely iii. I measure real tight though, right before a wash, when all texture is out my hair.
    It’s a similar situation in my family! My grandmother had 9 children and all the boys have underwhelming hair but all the girls have thick hair

    Measured at 4.3 today. I thought I'd lost thickness but it's not the case!

    Mine is about 3.9" (9.9cm) measured tightly. It varies a bit but it's getting more consistent now that my bangs have grown out.

    Oh wow. My hair is way thicker than the last time I measured like 10 years ago. It's 3.75" around (compacted down) and that's even with me having trich and pulling out hairs here and there. If I wasn't pulling, I very well made might be in the iii classifier, not the ii.

    My ponytail is 3 inches. I have some grown out layers from a previous haircut and some front pieces that don't fit in my ponytail so I am hoping that once it grows out it adds maybe a centimeter (little less than half an inch). So who knows!! Pretty exciting, because I used to think my hair was very thin... but I am just average

    I also asked two of my 1a/1b friends with waist length hair, blonde and dark blonde. Blonde friend has thick bangs and still 9 cm (almost 10 inches) measuring hair ponytail..... I always knew her hair was thick but this does put it into perspective very well for me. My darker blonde haired friend measured 8 cm (3 inches and 1/5 of an inch), she also has a few face framing layers... Really interesting stuff... I will probably also ask my sister about her circumference, she too has blonde hair. (I myself have brown hair).

    Mine is currently about 3.75. I wonder how much the circumference is affected by how moisturized the hair is.

    Moisture definitely has a huge impact on PT circumference. The diameter of a wet strand is about 15% greater than that of dry (lengthwise the difference is only about 2%). You can do the math

    Mine is 3.5 inches

    ...and yes I am so happy about that! I'd thought my hair was so thin for my whole life. I'm so happy to find out I'm average Oh, I just read the posts above and I should've measure it while wet (or at least damp). I live in a desert so I'm sure my hair is dry compared to when I used to live five minutes from an ocean!
