Default How to get rid of straight pieces of my twa after a BC?!?!?!?!

So I did a big chop because of severe heat damage and didn't like how the stylist cut my hair. I went to another and he did sort of like a Keyshia Cole haircut where the sides where all shaved but left the middle section somewhat long. I loved it and then once the sides grew out a little, I cut it all even or close to even. The curls that frame the front of my face are 3a but the rest of my hair (mainly the top of my head) is 2a or 2b. I'm assuming it's heat damage that I didn't cut off but no matter what, that hair is not growing curly like it used to. The roots are stick straight so when I leave my hair out curly, I have pretty curls and straight pieces that just poke out. What can I do to revert those pieces of hairs back to curls like the curls that frame my face? Is there really any way possible to get those curls to be 3a or 3b?

I really don't have any experience of growing out after heat damage, but to give the straight hair a little more time could you pin curl those pieces or something like that to give it a bit more time to grow? Do you know how much new growth there is in that section?

I tried but my hair was so damaged that even trying to pin curl doesn't work. It just pops out back straight and its driving me insane. I've gotten like an inch over the past month but my new growth in those sections are still straight.
