Can hair grow back after Botox injections caused it to fall out?

A few months after my Botox injections to the forehead, I noticed my hair falling out in clumps and is very thin at the frontal hairline? I heard this happens to a few people, but I never hear if their hair grew back? Anyone experience this and did your hair come back?

Hi, I heard that...Botox injections into the scalp may be a short-term solution to greasy hair. In the end, the body absorbs the Botox into the system, which means that a person may start seeing less of an effect about 2 to 3 months after the initial Botox injections. More rarely, transient headache, nausea, or flu-like symptoms have been reported.

This is interesting because I was just reading about BOTOX and hair loss!!  Like it makes you lose your hair. I've used shampoos that have clay  in them for overly greasy hair.  It has really helped.  I have a really cheap one I use now bought at grocery store.
@GuitarRox - Your message is a bit old... just happened across it. If you are in the U.S. what is the clay shampoo you like that helps with overly greasy hair? My scalp tends to get oily but my hair is dry. Will it dry out my hair too? Thanks!
