the thread can slide down the strand during the week especially when pulled constantly. This would make you think there is more new growth from the scalp when the thread just slipped down further. The hair also gets straighter during the week...thus longer. There is nothing precise about it. My measurements of black roots from a haircolor newgrowth are about the most accurate you can get especially since my hair is always straight at the roots 

Hair should have been flat ironed for measurements and measured PERPENDICULARLY UP from the hairline  from root to tip

Lord have mercy, LadyAradia, I'm not even going to chop up your statement because it's not about that.
Just because something doesn't work for you or you don't like something for yourself doesn't mean it's not beneficial to anyone else.  Negativity is so unflattering.
 
But I digress, tatee, I actually like hanging upside down!  I was actually thinking of doing it this evening just because Embarrassed

Lurking I got you on the 12th or 13th with my next start pics and I'll either post my finished results on the 19th or 20th.

As far as measuring goes I agree you will get more accurate results on straightened hair. But I totally understand that not everyone uses heat. Our hair in it's coily state leaves room for error due to other factors previously mentioned. I measure with the tape measure similaryl described by LadyA and when I post pics it is done with the same piece of leave out after being washed and flat ironed and I use my face(eyes, nose, lips, chin etc) to show it's progression. That's what works for me and I intend to continue to do it that way. If there are any questions, someone will try and provide an answer. If there are any suggestions, tips, or advice I'm always willing to consider them. Everything else will be ignored. Grow on ladies. Wishing you all meet and surpass your goals.

ETA- Ms. Kudos I did mine at relatively the same time each day. Last time I did it in the evening next time I will do it in the mornings.

I am still on for this week. I took my start pic will post later. (I have to charge the camera and locate the chord for the computer) The section of my leave out I use to chart my growth during this install is slightly past my lower lip. After my wash/ deep condition and flat iron session my nape felt like it was on fire. It is better now but I know I have to get a handle on my hairline and nape. I must say that my hairline is improving slowly but surely. I don't think it is affecting my growth but I am optimistic about it getting better.

I couldn't take any pictures for this as my camera charge has gone walkabouts. I only have measurements which was 20cm in all parts. Can't give my results today as my hair was washed yesterday it isn't fully stretched.
