You can take shower the very next day after the removal of bandage. At our clinic after bandage removal we give first head wash and instruct the patient about the procedure to be followed while doing head wash. One can use mild or baby shampoo. Shampoo solution as advised is to be gently poured over the scalp and then rinsed by gently pouring the water over the area. No rubbing, scratching and picking is to be done while washing. This ensures cleanliness of the area, which promotes healing. After about 2 weeks one can start gently rubbing the area to dislodge and clean the crusts. One should not be aggressive with this and try to remove all the scabs in one go. Normal shampoo can be used after 2-3 weeks.
