Between days 3 and 10 you should wash your hair daily as follows: Put the lotion provided to you on the transplanted area and wait for 30 minutes. Wash way gently with soft warm water then, lather up with shampoo in your hands first make bubbles then pat the shampoo gently on your head then wash away with warm water and do not rub the area.
You should wash your head everyday in this same manner for 7-8 days.
Shampoo and Hair Conditioner
Use only the shampoo and hair conditioner recommended by your hair transplant experts and do not use any harsh products on your hair that might cause damage to the newly transplanted hair.

Physical activities and workouts
Refine from any exercise for at least one month. It is better to relax for several days after hair transplant. You should avoid sweating at all costs because sweat can do alot of damage to the new grafts and might even cause the hair to not grow as it should.
