Dandruff is not dangerous. If you have issues after surgery it is best to contact your doctor for a follow up examination.

Scaling following hair transplant

Scaling after transplantation in the recipient area is a common phenomenon. This will go off once these hair are shed off after 2-4 weeks of the surgery. And then the area will become clean. There is no danger of this.

Dandruff

Dandruff happens as the grafts and eschars are shed after a hair transplant. This dandruff will not damage the grafts
