Hair Relaxing

Would not recommend any heat applied to your hair, transplanted or non transplanted.  

Also would not recommend any harsh chemicals.  Use only organic products, and do not use any source of heat, including ironing, blow drying on hot setting, or sun bathing without protection frequently.

That will damage your hair regardless of whether they are transplanted or non.

Hair treatment after transplant

Once the grafts and hair has fully regrown after a hair transplant it can be treated as your normal hair.  This being said, any damaging products to the hair will also damage the transplanted hair.
