Hello...thank you.

Tanya, regarding the trauma to your head, it is unlikely that your hair loss is related.

Hair follicle growth has three phases. If the trauma interrupts the hair follicle you could have some hair loss. However, this would not be a permanent loss of hair. Hair growth is dependent on individual genetics but on average 1/2 inch per month.

I hope this has been helpful to you.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
