superficial scratches at this point in time will not damage your transplant. keep the area clean and dry until the scratches are fully healed to minimize the chance of infection, but the grafts are secure.
Thank you for your question. The 2 month post procedural point is a safe mark for you to begin resuming normal activities. You should wash your hair everyday with the baby shampoo. Please follow the recovery instructions as provided by your board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Worrying about damaging transplant 2 months after
At the 2 month mark after a hair transplant it is really incorporated well into the scalp. At this stage it is not easy to damage the transplant. Use normal care of your hair with any shampoo that you like, Johnson's baby shampoo is a good choice.

No damage at this stage
At this stage you don't have to worry about treating your transplanted hair in any way that is different then you would treat your normal hair. You can scratch your head and wash/cut/shave/color your hair however you wish.
At two months after surgery, the grafts are secure and you did not harm them. At 10 days after surgery, the grafts will hold tight; after 2 - 3 weeks, they are firmly secure and can not be dislodged.
