Hi , thanks for posting your query

I understand your concern

This hair loss is due to pulling force on the hair in a bid to remove the glue, there is no damage to the hair follicle so the hair will grow back . However the time taken is unpredictable as it varies from person to person,
It may take one or two more months for the hair to grow back

Give your son sufficient levels of iron and protein which may help promote normal hair growth.

Hope this solves your query
