    I had a nightmare last night about a cartoon that you probably don't know about. It's about a girl who got caught in an explosion involving a birthday cake and fossil oil. She did not die, she was just weak and had to be in a wheelchair (which I think she will recover), but her hair disintegrated and turned to ash. And now she is bald which almost made me cry. Do you think hair will grow back after that?

    Depends on the damage done to the scalp. If the actual cells the hair grow from are damaged, then yes, she'll probably have no hair forevermore. But if it was just the hair that got destroyed, then she'll grow it back eventually.

    By the sounds of it though they would have been burned up pretty bad, which would doubtless have done deeper damage that might prevent the hair growing back.

    Sorry to not be more reassuring.


    That said, in cartoonland normal rules don't apply, so it's probably down to the plot.

    (And after watching Star Trek The Motion Picture, I've come to the conclusion that bald women can be sexy ;) )

    I guess it would depend on HOW it happened.

    Here's how it went, She comes out with a birthday cake with sparkles. one of the sparks fell in a puddle of oil, kaboom, she was chard, her hair that was still on her head fell on the ground and turn to ash.

    She was a green leafy vegetable? (just kidding, I know you meant 'charred'... :lol  )

    Considering she could have been dead, or still alive but without skin, sight, fingers, toes, limbs...just being bald is lucky!

    From experience yes....

    A weak uncared for scalp can take up to a year to heal but yes.

    Don't sweat about it. I'm sure she can rock the bald look just fine.

    I'm going to immerse myself in flames and report back. TFW is the only way to find out things like this.

    Best part of a girl being bald is she can buy a ton of different wigs and her boyfriend can feel like he's with a different girl every night!

    No, it's not anime. It's flash animation.

    Like Sol said I don't think the hair grows back if the roots are destroyed. My grandfather lost most of his eye-brows when his garage nearly exploded once.

    And some bald women can be sexy.

    Is this a joke thread? It's a cartoon, bromie. Her hair'll grow back if the writer wants it too.

    I'm just worried about her appearance for the remaining seasons, also two other characters in the series and same season went bald too, one from being burnt by lava in Hawaii, and the other turning into the lord of the rings character, but I don't care about those two, I only care about her because she didn't deserve it. Few moment ago the main actor who voices the main character said that in season 5 they will all be back to normal. And this is only season 3.
