Answer to your 1st question is probably not. When I used to use semi-permanent color on my hair it pulled out much of the curl and got straighter.
The only medications that I know that can change the structure of hair is chemotheraputic agents used to treat cancers. Thats because they can actually change the RNA strands that are code the texture, color or structure of the hair itself. My DH is an Oncology nurse and there have been many instances when people undergoing chemo have lost all their hair and it grows back a totally different color, texture and curly/straight/wavy, when it never was that way before.
Believe me, if there was a medication that could make curlies straight and vice-versa then MANY women who want what they dont have would be taking it!!! Certainly not me because I LOVE my curls!!
