Some people who get a hair transplant develop dandruff and wonder whether this would affect the growth of their transplanted hair. While mild dandruff a month after surgery does not affect the growth of hair, scratching your head with your nails to remove it can cause hair fall. Repeated abrasion can lead to traction alopecia- a condition that results from subjecting the hair to excessive pulling force.
If you are experiencing dandruff after a hair transplant, your primary goal should be to treat it medically. It is safe to use medicated shampoos 6 weeks after surgery. Your doctor would guide you which medication to use. Some doctors suggest Nizoral- which is an over the counter drug. Your hair restoration physician should be immediately consulted to rule out any potentially more severe skin conditions.
Severe scalp irritation such as scalp dermatitis can be the cause of some types of hair loss due to factors other than hereditary. The hairs that appear on your fingers after you scratch are most likely to be your native hair however; a certain portion of the hair could be transplanted hair. The hair shedding could be one of the following:
Whatever the case may be, two months from a hair transplant is not the time to panic. This is probably the time when people look the worst. You should visit your doctor to get a better understanding and be patient as this time would pass and you would see good results in a few months. In the meantime, an anti-dandruff shampoo would do good to treat your condition.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
