Your doctor knows the status of your grafts and transplant best, so their advice will be the most tailored towards your specific situation. Almost every doctor will tell you to wash your hair daily, and if you follow the instructions your doctor gave losing grafts shouldn't really be an issue. You're a few days post op so the grafts aren't going to be very weak, if you wash your head gently I would be very surprised if you pulled them out.
If your doctor gave you a specific recommendation and instructions, then it is best to follow it. If you don't want to

Post op care
Each doctor may have their own routine for post op care. But in general you need to wash very gently, with no rubbing for the first seven days .All washing stages should be performed daily ; softly using palms, with no pressure . 7 days later you may start massaging the recipient area by using your fingertips because after 15 days there should be no more traces of dried blood or scabs on your scalp.
All the best
