i left my head alone completely (besides the gentle hair washing) for 10 days. now i have the flaky skin/scabs coming up. you get the urge to brush that off (and i have been). is that safe to do at this time?

i'm seeing hairs falling out into the sink. i know i was told this is normal but i wanted someone to put my mind at ease about it

Pretty sure that the grafts are secured by 10 days post op, just be gentle, I know its hard, my head is itching like crazy atm, at only 2 days post op.

Its all normal.Your new transplanted hairs are shedding thats all.

Give your head a good massage while shampooing to remove the scabs,i would use a normal anti dandruff shampoo now to help remove the flakes of skin.
