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

    Its going to take maybe 2 months because by then you should have an inch of curly hair.Next time flat iron hair since its not permanent. You can use cippers to cut off all of the relaxed hair so you won't have to deal with 2 different textures later on.

    By the time snow arrives you should have some new growth. Focus on school for these months and before you know it your hair will be back. For the time being and while its short just wet and condition your hair and then shape style it with your fingers and let it air dry.

    Hey I big chopped a month after relaxing. I had 1.5 inches of new growth. You will be able to tell right away which parts are relaxed because they stick straight out. I kept small shears and clipped them off.
