Scalp cooling is one of those things that until you are faced with the possibility of losing your hair you probably won’t have heard much about.
Questions such as what is scalp cooling?, how does scalp cooling work? and does scalp cooling prevent hair loss? are some of the first thoughts most people have.
The aim of scalp cooling is to try to reduce hair loss as a side effect to chemotherapy so that you can maintain a regular hairstyle.
When your hair doesn’t fall out it means that you can keep your cancer diagnosis private, take some control over your treatment and ultimately it can help to boost your confidence and face treatment more positively.
