Scar Removal on the Scalp

I have a scar that I got surgically as a child. It from one ear to the top of the head to the other ear. Is there a way to regrow hair in that area or to at least hide it with short hair?

Hair transplants

Hair transplants would work well to hide the scar.  It would advisable to grow your hair a bit longer in addition to conceal the scar.

Scar on scalp

Incisions on hair bearing areas may lead to a noticeable scar due to either the scar spreading or the hair follicles being traumatized from the surgical procedure. Sometimes hair grafting can be performed to camouflage it.
