I believe you have 2b/2c hair. It's very nice.. I like it.
I agree with Lanora... and you could probably simplify the type depending on whether your hair gets more (2c) or less (2b) curly as it gets longer.
2c. present color& past heat damage, fine, low-density, high porosity, happy with some protein. re-CG as of 5/2014. Wash:V05 PFS or KLS, RO: (trying to use up my stash; so it's always different!), LI: Cure Care, DT: SM Smooth & Repair Hair Masque, Style: Ecostyler Olive Oil / La Bella Lots of Curls gel
You have the exact same hair as my brother! Looks like your hair gets curlier as it gets longer too, so I'd say 2B when short and 2C, maybe even 3A in the second picture.

3B. Med porosity. Med thickness. Med density.

LP: Shea Moisture (currently JBCO)
Conditioner/CW: Jason Aloe Vera

LI: Aunt Jackie's Curls & Coils Quench

Gel: DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel

Thank you for your replies . I was wondering if my hair could ever get as curly as 3b or 3c, but i guess thats unlikely, seeing im probably only a 3a at my curliest

The traditional method of shampooing frequently robs the hair from moisture, but once the hair is re-moisturized and in good health its elasticity increases and the curls begin to "pop". Sometimes it can happen the very first day too!

Here's a video that shows a technique to style men's wavy/curly hair. I need to say that I wouldn't do it exactly like that but it's... close,
it appears there are no really good videos out there yet for your type of hair (very nice, btw!). I'd probably apply a bit of a gel or curl cream on hair mostly wet and then have you flip your head down and back up quickly, that usually causes the curls to "regroup" all by themselves with no need of further manipulation. The net tip was a good one since most men do not own a diffuser, but a diffuser is really the way to go, I saw W-M sells the "cups" for under $6.

Another tip: make sure to not rub your hair with a towel when you wash it, that poor guy looks like they rubbed his to death, it's better to just "scrunch" out the excess water, and preferably with a microfiber towel (small ones are available at the Dollar Tree) or an old T-shirt.

I forgot this other video I'd watched, they do use a diffuser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugzsqAlRdOA
Thanks alot for your hair tips CGSince 2002 and the video . I think as you were saying the best thing for my hair is just to add abit of curl cream when my hair is wet, and then flip my head to let the curls be as they are naturally. I`d say with my hair type its a pretty easy style to achieve, without the need of any additional manipulation really.
