Is It Safe to Use Nizoral Shampoo after Recent Hair Transplant Surgery?

Dandruff shampoo Nizoral has quite a mixed reputation. Some guys swear by it as being an effective adjunct to hair growth treatments like Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride), while others claim it has exacerbated their hair loss. While it is harsh and can cause irritation if over-used, many reputable hair transplant surgeons agree that Nizoral is safe to use after the initial 10-day healing period after surgery.

When choosing which shampoo to use in the days and weeks after hair transplant surgery, it's always the best practice to follow your own hair restoration physician's post-operative care advise. But, by 10 days after surgery, it's generally safe to use any shampoo you like. Having said that, it never hurts to err on the side of caution.
