Scalp cooling to prevent hair lossSome chemotherapy drugs will damage your hair cells. Scalp cooling – or cold cap treatment as it is more commonly known – during chemo can prevent or minimise the damage caused to hair follicles, meaning that hair loss is not inevitable.
By cooling the scalp during chemotherapy it’s possible to protects these cells, and ultimately your hair, by reducing the concentration of chemotherapy being delivered to your scalp area.
The cold makes the small blood vessels around the hair follicle contract and smaller amounts of chemotherapy reach the hair cells. As a result there is less risk that hair will fall out.
Cold cap treatment is only effective when use with certain chemotherapy drugs and it’s not always possible to know how effective the scalp cooling outcome will be until you try it. Your clinician can tell you if scalp cooling is compatible and/or successful with your treatment. Read More About Hair Loss and Chemotherapy
