So how were you washing your hair for the last 6 months? You should be washing your hair as you have all your life.

Washing your hair

After a hair transplant and now that it has been 6 months, you can wash your hair as you would have done without having a hair transplant

Washing following FUE

Hi There, 

You can wash your hair as you normally would. Six months post the grafts have taken and are as your ungrafted hair follicles. I suggest using a zinc based dandruff shampoo, as zinc may stimulate hair growth. Using Minoxidil and Propecia will further the growth from the grafts. 

Hope this helps,
