Most doctors would say that a month is enough time to resume all your normal activities, and you can treat the recipient area like a normal part of your head. You should ask your doctor these questions, just in case your FUE is unique and the wait periods for these activities are longer.
It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.

by now you are free to do as you choose with your head, you can shampoo normally, sleep normally, resume previous activities, and use minoxidil.

You may shower normally as soon as 8 days after a procedure, and wash your hair normally. You can also lay on a pillow as you did before the procedure. Return to all your normal activities and wait for the hair to come in.
