Dandruff and a hair transplant

People who have dandruff may have more flaking after a hair transplant. The use of a good anti-dandruff shampoo make sense at this point in your recovery

Is dandruff dangerous for the transplant?

OG_335,It should be fine to continue to use your dandruff shampoo after surgery. I like alternating with Nizoral 2% on alternate days. Lather and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing. Check with your surgeon for further instructions.
