Itching after a Hair Restoration Procedure is a very common phenomenon.

You should first check with the Doctor who performed your surgery. Itching after a Hair Restoration Procedure is a very common phenomenon. Some simple ways that our patients deal with this would be to spray the recepient area regularly with saline solution. An even better solution would be to use a spray containing copper peptides (e.g. Iamin) which in our patients has been effective in expediting healing and reducing inflammation.

Transplanted area is dry

It is not unusual to have dry skin after a hair transplant as healing comes into play. You can use moisturizers without difficulty to wet the skin

Dry scalp is that a problem with hair growth?

there is no problem wit the transplanted hair before it grows in. To avoid dry scalp you may want to use dandruff shampoo couple of times a week.
