    I think you have 2C/3A curls as well however, your curls are your curls as you continue to treat your hair well you might see a curl pattern change, but remember Rick Fox is bi-racial which plays a major factor in what type of hair he has, your curls aren't to far off from his he just has more of a coarse hair texture. So you may never get his curls exactly but on a brighter note you do have nice curls if you dont appreciate them you should:)

    Thanks for your response. Is there any sort of natural treatment i can do to define my curls and get them thicket? For instance would perm rods do anything? How risky is a texturizer?

    Omg NOOOOO stay away from the texturizer ... The perm rods will be fine if you want to achieve a curl that you dont have... I would suggest deep conditioning, follow the cg method no poo/low poo co wash if you dont know what this means cg is the curly girl handbook that was made my lorraine i believe her name is only wash your hair at the scalp and minimal shampoo washings completely saturate the hair with conditioners when you do your cowashes (co wash means just condition no shampoo) and I use coconut oil on my hair every so often when its super dry, try protein treatments those may be able to help you usually when your hair is healthy it grows back more thick

    Hey everyone,

    How can I get Rick Fox curls and what type of hair do I have? Im guessing 2C or 3A. I'm trying to get a thicker s curl patter that will make my hair look more full. I'm growing it out again.

    This is the last time i grew it out years ago:

    As you can see, I need more bulk and texture. I've always struggled with styling since my hair is hard to manage and goes in all sorts of directions. For this reason, I have to buzz it normally which I actually don't mind.

    What I'm aiming for:

    /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fmasshysteriasports.files.wordpress.com%2F2009%2F01%2Frickfox.jpg" class="Popup

    /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fi.cdn.turner.com%2Fsi%2F.element%2Fimg%2F4.0%2Fglobal%2Fswapper%2F201008%2F100830.17.jpg" class="Popup

    What are some tips and is my "goal" possible? :dontknow: Thanks!

    At the short length you have now, it's hard to know exactly what it will do when longer. Usually tighter curls like yours loosen up considerably with the weight of the hair, but not always ... and it's hard to know yet how long your hair needs to grow before the curl pattern changes significantly. You should just grow it out and see what you get. It will probably look great. It looks healthy and great already :)

    Oh they both look really racially mixed and frankly, I think Fox's hair looks straighter than the OPs. But I agree with you about the texturizer suggestion: really bad idea for what he wants to achieve.

    Oh I meant to say bi-racial as in black or african american

    Being biracial isn't always reliable in predicting curl outcome. My sibs and I have different hair types. My bro's is almost straight. One of my sis's is close to afro textured. And for all I know the OP is biracial (though it really doesn't matter either way). Both men look very mixed to me (and both happen to be good looking) :)

    Thanks, I'm actually Iranian:) I guess I will have to let it grow for a few months and see what happens. Hopefully, the curls will loosen up
