Probably: Superficial cuts on the scalp should not damage any of the hair follicles which would cause the hair to stop growing. If the cut is deep to the second layer of skin (dermis), it is possible that the hair follicle is damaged and will not generate hair growth.

Time: Sorry, your hair has a certain growth cycle, and there is no way to safely speed it up. At least this is a condition that will get better on it's own.
