Is it normal for a shower head to drip a few times then stop totally?

Hello all,

I just had a new shower bath mixer tap fitted due to it dripping every 3 seconds none stop.

Now I have noticed the shower head drips once every minute for about 5 mins then stops totally after that.
Is this normal or cause for concern and get the plumber back out?

thanks all in advance?

Its likely to be the small amount of water left in the shower head emptying out. If it drips for a while then stops, nothing to worry about.
