Getting Rid of Relaxed Hair

okay so the thing is, im 16 year old guy and i had curly afro hair they were long and kind of huge so i got them relaxed a week back and after relaxing i found out that straight long hair dont suit on me and i want to get back, so i got a short haircut which is spikes, the sides are short and the hair in the middle are normal, like not too short and not too long.. maybe two - three inches... now im worried how long will it take for my curly hair to grow and when they do grow how will i get rid of em? because i got my relaxed hair cut just after a week because i didn't like it at all and there was no new growth at that time, still there isn't. so yeah how will i need to cut my hair when new grows? like sides are short and i can know that new hair over sides wont look bad but in the middle they'll poof out with straight and it'll look bad no? will it be easy to get rid of straight hair then and maintain curly hair? please tell :c

    Most people's hair growth rate is about half an inch a month. I'm not sure now many inches your top is, but you can cut the relaxed hair one the sides once you get some new growth and just wear the sides curly and the top straight. The only thing you can do for the top is flat iron the new growth until you're ready to cut the relaxed hair off or just cut it all now and start fresh. If you go the flat iron route, you run the risk of permanently loosening or even permanently straightening the new growth.
