no. 104 – The Scalp Cooling (Cold Capping) Episode [Part 2]

Today’s episode is a follow-up to last week’s Part 1 episode about my experience using Scalp Cooling through Dignitana as a part of keeping my hair during chemotherapy. In this episode, I interview my friend Margaret about her experience (and success!) “cold capping” with a different system.

In the show we discuss:

  • Why it’s important to understand the level of commitment cold capping requires
  • Tips about hair care in between chemo, including washing the hair very little, washing in cold water, avoiding heating/curling/drying tools, and more
  • Tips for “chemo day,” including the need for an electric blanket
  • The “discomfort level” of cold capping and how to make it manageable 

ICYMI, in last week’s show notes, I also shared a link to THIS POST with PICTURES of my chemo/scalp cooling hair experience
