    polar cap

    Hey WhatNextster,

    What are your experiences with the polar cap used to prevent hair loss during chemo? Does this only work with certain chemos? Is it worth trying if they offer it at my hospital? I meet with Oncology for the first time on Friday.

      I know some of the ladies on here have used them. If you go to the experiences page and type in cold cap in the search box you will get several conversations that are on the board about them.
