Paxman Conditioner For Use With Cooling Cap - 200ml
To help people live better with cancer, we donate $1000 to the American Cancer Society every month.
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.
Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?
I used the cooling caps and even though my hair got thinner I still got to keep it. I used a shampoo and a conditioner that are specially designed for use along with a cold cap.
