Re: Scalp cooling and hair washing

Hi, I’m on my 2nd AC cycle and I’m following the instructions of Penguin Caps that was my option for capping, washing 2 days before treatment and on the 3rd day after treatment with a plant base xampoo. My hair started shading and I’m very anxious 😟 if it was should expected or should worry from this point. 


Scalp cooling and hair washing

Hi all, how did everyone get on with scalp cooling and washing their hair please?
I had my first chemo and scalp cooling last Thursday, and I am struggling with not washing my hair 🤣 of course I am willing to do all I can to preserve my hair but would love any advice - I have since Just washed it once with baby shampoo, but have ordered Watermans shampoo and conditioner, and I am under the understanding to just wash once or twice a week? No hair dryers and definitely no straightening, many thanks xx
