It is safe to rub your head one year after a hair transplant surgery. It is more of a wonder what you were doing for the last year. Transplanted hair is same as your normal hair.

After a year from your surgery you can do whatever you want with those transplanted hairs. As long as it wouldn't affect any other hair, it won't affect the transplanted ones. That is the best part about hair transplants is now you have a full head of hair again and it is your own hair to do with whatever you want.

Regarding safety of shampooing hair with hard rub?
It is safe to wash the hair in the shampooing process with normal handling. I would not try to pull the hair out. Since the hair is lathered I do not think she can get a good grip. You can request a little gentleness if you think it is too rough.

No need to worry about what seemed to be a vigorous rub of your transplanted area. At one year, the grafts are fully incorporated, have a strong blood supply, and are just as strong and resiliant as any of your other hair. Hope you're loving your results at a year.
