Post Shoulder Length 4a/b hair

I would like to see pictures of shoulder length 4a/b hair. I would like to know how long it looks in its shrunken state (such as in a wash and go), stretched state (such as in a twist out, plaits, twists, etc.), and wet.

I don't have pictures on hand but I would say that in my case in most cases when dry I have 50% shrinkage and when wet I have 75% shrinkage.
That is to say when my hair was shoulder length it looked chin length in twist/braid outs and like a twa when wet.

In my case shoulder length was 9-10 inches, so my hair appeared to 4.5-5 inches in twists and even shorter when wet.
