Hi. Greetings. Seborrhoea capitis/ seborrhoiec dermatitis or dandruff is a chronic problem. Please note. Avoid using oils on scalp. This acts as food for  fungus causing dandruff. You can apply it only at the hair part and not the scalp for short durations if you wish to.  Secondly wash hair with antifungal / low strength corticosteroid based shampoos. Use maintenance shampoos regularly. You may need a course of oral antifungals if your condition is severe. Yes hair does grow after hair transplantations. See a qualified dermatologist or dermatosurgeon in your city. Hope this helps. Warm regards Dr Govind S Mittal. Excel care hospital, Bangalore.

Keep your hair clean and short. Reduce oily spicy food. Shampoo more frequently. continue treatment for dandruff. After hair transplant hair grows but maintenance medications are required. You can go through my health feed on practo on Understanding Dandruff. Hope this helps.
