View Full Version : When is it safe to resume Dandruff Shampoo?

05-28-2014, 06:42 AM
I have always had dandruff and when I don't use a dandruff shampoo I get sores on my scalp. Since my HT surgery 4 weeks ago, I have been using baby shampoo. I have developed sore on the scalp. These are occurring neither in the donor area or recipient area so I am just assuming they are my natural tendency. Since historically they have responded well to a dandruff shampoo I would like to start using a dandruff shampoo as soon as I can but dont want to compromise by grafts etc.. All that being said, I have the following questions:

1) What is the safe time to resume a dandruff shampoo?

2) When I do go back, should I use something other than "Head and Shoulders"

IMHO, you really should see a dermatologist for your condition especially since there are sores that have developed. You may have something more complex than just dry scalp.

That being said, after four weeks post-op, your scalp should be healed by now right? So IMHO, it would be ok to resume your normal anti-dandruff shampoo but again, it would be beneficial to get a derm's advice.

Hope your result turns out awesome...;)
