Can you please help me?

Hi, there! So, a month ago I got my hair chemically straightened. And now, I absolutely hate it! I don't know what happened but I guess seeing photos of myself in my wavy, long-haired (did I say my hair is upto my chin now?) glory made me want it back. So, my questions are:

-When my hair grows out will it return to its original texture, i.e., wavy?
-Does straightening hinder the speed of hair growth?
-If I curl my hair regulary, is there a chance that my hair might become wavy again?

Thanks a ton! (:

P.S. My questions might seem silly but please do answer them. Thanks, again.

    I'm not an expert in this area, but from what I've read:

    New growth should come in with your original texture. I don't think there's anything you can do to make the straightened hair curly again aside from curling it yourself. And you definitely want to be careful not to over-do it with heat styling. Heat styling won't slow growth per se, but it can do a lot of damage to hair, requiring more frequent trims (and loss of more length). HTH!

    If you stop chemically straightening your hair and let it grow out it should return to its natural texture. From what I've read putting a lot of heat on your hair can relax your curl pattern, but I don't think it slows down the growth process. Curling your hair regularly won't make your hair wavy naturally, heat will just damage your hair. The best advice I can give you is to have patience.

    Hope I helped!

    Thanks a lot, Corrina and Jayelle! :) I'll keep in mind what you said. I just hope my hair grows out properly.
