In brief: Depends on the cause
Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) can be reversed with rogaine (minoxidil) or Propecia if it's started soon enough.
To maintain the results they have to be used on an ongoing basis. Hair loss due to pregnancy, trauma or shock will grow back with time. Hair loss due to underlying medical problems (ie: anemia) can be reversed if the medical problem is treated.

In addition to finasteride and minoxidil, Low level laser therapy (laser combs or caps for example) can also slow or reverse hair loss. Transplanting hair from the back of the head also can restore hair in thin or bald areas
