Hey bud, I would say yes.  I was more aggressive than you have been with washing my recipient area.  I had all of the scabs and white crust off my scalp 9-10 days after the transplant.  It looks like you had yours done a little over a week after I had mine.

The night of the 14th day is when I started shedding.  Working at my desk and just looked down at notebook paper and probably 30-40 little hairs laying there.  They looked exactly like those in your pic without the scabs on them.

So you started shedding about 2 days before I did, but maybe not?  I started shampooing on the 7th day, so I'm sure I had some stuff come out in the shampoo that I didn't see.

You're good man.  Now just prepare for it all to fall out and then slowly grow back over the next year.  Remember, we didn't have our yard sodded.  We had it seeded.  It'll take longer but it'll come in nice and full ;)

You’re going to be fine.  I know if feels good to have all those scabs fall off.  You have plenty to look forward to in 3-4 months.  I chronicled my process daily with pictures and descriptions on my website.  You may want to check that out and see what to expect and when.  Everyone is a bit different but results are fairly typical.  I’ve recently posted past pictures again showing what to expect.  Go to my archives and see daily results from. 2012 and 2015.  My website is ...

In the mean time keep posting pictures on this website every month or two showing us your progress.  Best of luck to you.

Looking very good.  Also looks like the redness is fading as well.  Keep us posted monthly on the network, especially around that 3-4 month range when those new hairs percolate through.

It is normal for it to shed, i did my hair transplant at Turkey MegaHair trans. They said it is normal for it to shed, just try to to scratch it. If you cant resist wear gloves.

Let the scabs come off at their own pace.  Most of mine came off in the shower but be careful as you shampoo and massage your scalp during the shower.  Looking forward to seeing more pictures in a couple months.
