At 6 months you can wash your hair however you would like. There's nothing special you need to do to care for your transplants at this point, so live your life normally, including however you would usually take care of your hair.

Shampoo and oil after FUE

I would say yes, you can use shampoo and oil after 6 months since your FUE procedure. Although, I would suggest giving your doctor that performed the procedure a call and ask him or her.

Using oil after hairtransplant

6 months following your hair transplant procedure, you are allowed to use your own oil and shampoo and this will not effect the growth rate.

It can take 6 to 12 months after surgery to see results. If you are concerned it is best to contact your doctor

You can do whatever you want at 6 months after a hair transplant. I would have expected some growth by now
