My son dove head-first into a swimming pool, and he grazed the bottom of the pool with his head/face. He seems to have lost some hair(about 1/2″ diameter) from his hairline just above his forehead.
I feel VERY fortunate that he didn’t break his neck, but do you think his hair will grow back after the wound heals?
Maybe! It is difficult to say. A significant wound may have damaged the hair follicles and your son may have a bald spot on the area of trauma, but usually such trauma will produce only temporary hair loss. I would wait 8 months to see if hair will grow. If hair does not grow, he may be a candidate for a small hair transplant procedure.
