To determine you curl pattern you have to have like 3 inches of natural hair present for someone to look at and type. I'm not so sure about growing out hair a little then putting a curly perm in if you're not going to cut off the relaxed ends. Now if you are going to cut them off(which you didn't mention whether you were doing that or not) then it's totally fine to get a curly perm. A curly perm is different from a texturizer and it is possible to get a wave pattern from it. Texturizers loosen your natural curl and a curly perm creates whatever curl/wave that you want depending on the size of the roller/curlers that you use during the process of the perm.

You should probably post this in the curl's section to get more help if you want a curly perm. I'm 100% natural, but I read a lot about different processes when I'm bored. So I know enough about what you're asking here, but for more information you should talk to some girls who actually have a curly perm.

curly perms really arent great for ur hair they involve a double chemical process of first straightening ur hair n then creating a new curl pattern with rollers.. a texturiser jus loosens ur natural curl slightly.. it is a much healthier option for ur hair

If you're planning on getting a curly perm you don't need to know what you're natural curl pattern is because that type of perm will force your hair to curl around the size rod the stylist use and that will be your curl pattern. Now if you're looking for your natural curl pattern, you might want to grow out at least 4 or 5 inches to decide on whether you might want to just texturize to define your natural curl pattern.

And I agree with afrosista, curly perms are a double process. I would suggest  texturizing with a time release relaxer which you can wash and wear or switch back  and forth from curly to straight to curly.
