16 days after FUE hair transplant hair is falling and a lot of things like dandruff after showering (Photos)

No these are not the grafts just spontaneously falling- the transplanted hairs are usually shed around your time frame and can continue shedding until two months past the procedure. This is very normal and generally the grafts will begin sprouting new hair in the next several months.
It is normal to lose transplanted hairs weeks after surgery. It may take 6 to 12 months to see new hairs grow out.

Hair Fall And Dandruff After Hair Transplant
There is a possibility - due to operation stress - that a number of hairs will fall out in the post-operation phase. This generally temporary occurrence is known as "shock loss", and may last just a few weeks or possibly months. In certain cases, donor hairs and neighbouring hairs may fall out after a hair transplant (for instance when dense packing has been performed). This should not worry patients, as the hairs generally regrow once the shock loss period has ended. Moreover, the cell responsible for regrowth remains in the scalp even though the grafted hair falls. Regarding dandruff, scabs usually appear after a hair transplant, this is normal. You just need to make sure that both the recipient and the donor areas are as clean as possible during the postoperative period so that regrowth can be optimal. So this is very important to scrub the scabs during the shampoo. Pay attention to use your fingertips, not your nails. You can also apply sweet almond oil in order to soften the scabs.
