I had a hair transplant this year back in Feb in Turkey. 

For months I felt like my scalp has been dry, I contacted my surgery and they told be its normal just keep washing with shampoo they gave me. But still I had the same issue.

They told me I could not use oil but I see many people on youtube and forums saying i'm allowed. I still followed the the orders of my clinic.

My hair keeps on dropping out everytime I wash my head. Is this normal? I know this is not normal because my hair shedding time has passed

I started using baby shampoo and I seen some improvement then big chunks of flakes began to fall of my head. The big chunks of flakes are falling off along side which i believe are grafts implanted in them, the flake dropping is leaving big bald patches on my head making me to bald again😭I also began to grow cysts on my head which was horrible. They also popped and made me loose grafts😭

My head scalp has been very dry ever since I got a transplant, my clinic have given me poor advise and dont reply in time. I've given up contacting them

Please can you guys give me any advise on what I should do? Give me advise on what shampoos or oils I can use  to make my scalp healthy and save me from any more hair dropping out. Thank You!

I added photos of what my hair is looking like so give your open honest advise.

People are saying they see a improvment but I don't believe it. My hair looks alot worse

The grafts themselves are secure after approx 10 days. Anything after this time it would be the hair and not the graft.

Maybe you should see a dermatologist? I have had the same happen to me. Looks like cradle cap. I used baby shampoo and also t-gel. 
If you look at adult cradle cap type treatments you should find something suitable.

Does appear you have Seborrheic dermatitis. But it needs a expert to see it.

Yeah, I would definitely see a dermatologist about this. I have seborrheic dermatitis as well, and I've had to learn over the years what triggers my outbreaks. I know there are certain products I have to avoid, how frequently I need to wash my hair, etc. - and I also have some quick solutions when I do have an outbreak. My doctor prescribed me Ketoconazole shampoo which I use periodically and helps keep the outbreaks away, and I also have Clobetasol Propionate, which is a liquid steroid that I can apply to my scalp when an outbreak starts to get particularly bad. I've also found the raw Apple Cider Vinegar works for me. 

All of that said, see a dermatologist first and get their opinion after closely examining your scalp. Mention the things I use if you'd like so you can get their input on them... With time, you'll be able to manage this and get in under control. Best of luck - I know how frustrating and uncomfortable this can be.

You need to see a dermatologist ASAP. It could be seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis among other things. Treatments usually involve anti fungals, steroids, etc. make sure to show the derm these pictures u have as well with the big flakes
