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?

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:

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

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)
