Hair loss is the thing that worries most women when they are diagnosed with cancer, being concerned about how the change in their appearance will affect them and those around them. Everyone expects to lose their hair – no-one seems to realise that, in many cases, it can be prevented.

Today the most frequently used chemotherapy protocols cause complete hair loss.

Using a Cold Cap during every chemo treatment can reduce hair loss significantly and in many cases prevent it all together.

Cold Caps reduce the flow of the blood to the hair follicles as the lower temperature causes the blood vessels feeding the hair to reduce in size. Less blood reaches the hair follicle and, as the chemo drugs are carried in the blood, less of the chemo drug reaches the hair follicle. It is the drug that destroys the hair follicle cells, causing hair loss.

This conditioner is specially formulated to be gentle, soothing and free from chemicals that may irritate the sensitive scalp that results from chemotherapy.

Paxman Conditioner for use with Cooling Cap 200ml FAQs

  • While results will vary from person to person, the science behind cold caps is easy enough to understand.
    Cold caps work by lowering the temperature of your scalp during treatment to reduce blood flow to the region. This means that less of the cancer drug will reach the hair follicles, meaning they should be less damaged.
    While success cannot be guaranteed, many people find cold caps a very effective way of reducing hair thinning and hair loss during cancer treatment.

  • Cold caps are not available from the NHS, so you will need to provide your own. However, many treatment centres will be happy to facilitate your use of a cold cap, just make sure you talk with them about it beforehand so that they can best advise you.

  • You do not need to use your cold cap constantly, so a normal hair washing routine can be maintained. However, some hair products will irritate the scalp and can damage hair, so it is recommended that you use gentle hair care products during treatment, such as those from the Paxman range.

  • Scalp cooling works by lowering the temperature of your scalp during treatment. Colder parts of the body receive less blood flow, and therefore less of the cancer drug will reach your scalp during treatment. This means hair follicles are less likely to be affected by the drug, and therefore less likely to be damaged.
