7 Days

This is usually a safe time so you should be ok.  However, it is not a bad idea to check directly with your doctor.

At 7 days it is unlikely that the shampoo would cause harm. However, I advise my patients to wait 2 weeks.

Anti dandruf shampoo

At 7 days, of there is no crusting, you can use any shamp;oo you wish as the grafts should be sealed in the recipient area
