white thinks on my hair

no need to wash 3 times a day .. ıf you use a softener lotion for scabs , that are uncleaned well may cause those white dots. but when we look over all , everything and swelling is normal for 5 th day .

Looks normal to me. The rest of the crusts should be out in the next several days, and swelling at this point is pretty standard for patients to be dealing with. Good luck with the rest of the process!

A few days post op

It seems that all of the crusting is gone, that is great. A nice clean recipient area has less risks of infection and other complications

If you have concerns about your recipient area it is best to follow up with the surgeon who did your procedure. Swelling around the eyes is normal for post op especially if you did hairline work. Try warm compress to the swollen area, but not the grafted areas. Make sure to follow all your post op instructions provided.
