However, if you want to escape that rat race everyone’s been running in, you’ve got to step out of your comfort zone and take the steps you fear most. Oh yes, you’ll need to face the music by being the weird, wild, and free!

person should be familiar with.

1. Right Candidate To Get A Hair Transplant:

This is important to understand what makes one appropriate to undergo a hair
transplant. A person whose hair loss is stabilized is the perfect candidate to go

progression.

procedure limited by your own hair loss advancement. That’s why it is advised to
not get a hair transplant surgery at a young age or when hair loss has just
commenced. Consequently, if hair transplant is performed at an early stage, it may
accelerate hair loss.

2. Hair Transplant Is Not A Miracle:

Before going for a hair transplant surgery, it is important to prepare your mind
that regrowth of hair is different for every person. Your hair transplant surgery
depends on the quantity of hair you have in your donor area.

Also, getting a hair transplant does not guarantee you a head full of dense hair. It utterly relies upon the degree of baldness and contributor area of your head. Hair transplant cannot cure the ample baldness. Consequently, it should not be accounted that a hair
transplant surgery would prove to be a miracle and you will get a head full of
thicker hair.

3. Transplanted Hair Can Be Treated Like Normal Hair:

You can treat your transplanted hair just like usual hair, once it starts growing.
Transplanted hair is no different than the natural hair. Hair transplantation
motivates a person to gain back the confidence lost after hair loss. You can style it
just as you wish. It does not need any special care. Transplanted hair can be
washed and treated just like natural hair. You can get it styled just the way you
like.

4. Hair Transplant Is Permanent:

It is best to do your research about hair transplant techniques before going for
hair restoration because it is a surgical method to cure your hair loss enduringly.
Hair is taken from the permanent recipient area and transferred onto the bald
area. Since, the hair is taken and relocated it makes the hair transplant a
permanent process. You cannot go for a trial to do transplantation on a smaller
area of your head. Once you start the technique you are bound to go through the
complete procedure.

5. Emergence Of Transplanted Hair:

The transplanted hair does not fall out. Once the regrowth has commenced, it
becomes a permanent part of your scalp. The new hair progressively appears
after four months of the transplantation. After an eight month time period, around  80% of the hair emerge. Growth at the crown area usually takes even more time. At this
time, it is best to follow the post-surgery precautions as directed by the surgeon.

6. Post-Surgery Precautions Are Vital:

While planning your surgery keep in mind that you cannot go back to your normal
routine as soon as possible. It requires several days to rest and to take extensive
care of your transplanted area. After the surgery, you have to follow certain
safety measures. You can sleep on your back only, you cannot let your head touch
anywhere specially at the area where implantation is carried out because the
follicles are extremely fragile after the surgery. It is recommend to wear a shower
cap as a post-surgery precaution.

  1. Badmouthing your work or manager

Saying bad things about your boss or your job, particularly on a public platform, is never a good idea. Do you think your boss can’t see your posts? Well, your co-worker might forward it to him. While a single comment may not seem to hurt your career today, it could end up haunting you in future. What if your future prospective manager sees it and decides not to employ you? Badmouthing your boss whether current or previous is never a way to go.

  1. Sharing your recent employment offer

Always remember that employment offers are mostly confidential and just because you have an offer in hand, there is no guarantee that you may actually get it. If you violate the discretion, your manager may perceive you as unreliable and cancel the employment offer.

  1. Plagiarizing

The biggest mistake you can do to sabotage your career is to plagiarise. Plagiarism is totally intolerable in the corporate world. It is similar to saying, “I’m unskilled and idle, and I have zero reliability!” This is not only true for your professional account but holds equal significance for your personal accounts as well. Are you sharing an article? Cite the writer. Putting up a photo? Give credit to the photographer.

  1. Using SMS Language

While it may not seem to be a big deal to use SMS language on your social media page, it may actually have a negative impact on your career. It seems convenient when typing on your phone or fitting into a 140 character tweet, however, it can seriously affect your spellings and grammar which are crucial to professional communication.

  1. Sharing Offensive Content

You could lose your job if any content that you share insults another individual. Avoid posting unpleasant remarks even if pun is intended.

  1. Posting Obscene Photos

Your photos reflect who you are. Posting an obscene photo will negatively influence your reputation in the workplace. Moreover, there are some countries where alcohol is prohibited and if you happen to live there then please respect the norm. Even if you are over 21 and have full right to individualism, uploading a photo with a glass of alcohol could cost you your career.

  1. Making fun of your clients

Similar to badmouthing your manager, insulting or making fun of your clients can have a negative impact on your job. Numerous virtual stories have gone viral about waiters who took photographs of meager tips and uploaded them on social media only to get sacked for such an act. Complaining about clients only portrays your corporation in a negative light that no manager would tolerate.
