Hair growth after hair transplant

Once the grafts have healed following a hair transplant, hair typically grows at a standard rate.  Shaving your head or cutting your hair should not interfere with that.  Your hair will return following the shaving of your head.

Yes your hair will grow back for sure. There should not be an issue because this hair is not temporary.

If you shave your head, your hair will grow back. This is normal. If you are concerned you should contact your doctor.

Shaving a hair transplanted head

The issue you raised relates to shaving a hair transplanted head.  All of the hair will grow back at about 1/2 inch per month which is the normal hair growth rate
