Default measuring ponytail circumference with curly hair

I've lately been trying to watch my circumference to monitor if I"m keeping my hair on my head. But I read on another site, that us curlies should be measuring with a wet ponytail to be fair and accurate, to get all the air out. What do you all think? that makes me sad, because my pony measures 3.9 inches when it's dry. But I know wet, it's going to go down quite a bit, but maybe that's the correct way since we're including air in our measurements. Wanted others opinions.

I've not heard that, but if you're just wanting to check whether it's getting bigger or smaller so long as you do it the same way each time it wouldn't matter.

good point, thanks, ifor me it's just a way to monitor that I'm not losing! But now I'm sad to think I'm not as "thick" as I thought since they are right, that us curlies, have lots of hair in our hair!! THat gets measured in on the ponytail test. I don't know how many hairs my husband broke yesterday trying to measure it compressed/tight!
