I used this one
and I used tepid water - just the chill taken off.
I had great success with the cold cap this is me after last chemo
I did not use any special shampoo but I did use leave in conditioner.
Do not wash it under a shower, do not wash it more than once a week, do not scrub it or rub it hard with a towel.
No rollers, nothing other than a quick single wash and rinse in tepid water from a jug over the sink/bath. Then pat it gently and spray 3 or 4 puffs of a leave in conditioner then comb with a wide tooth comb AND LEAVE IT ALONE.
Never leave it wrapped in a towel, I did that once and it all went matted and I was afraid I would lose the lot!
If you have to use a hair dryer on a low setting and keep it several inches away.
You will shed and think it is not working - the cap saves some hair but not all of it. Ask if you want to know anything xxx
There's lots of great info here:
I was advised to not use baby shampoo as it is alkaline, and whilst kind to eyes, not great for hair loss. I've used Organic Surge gentle shampoo and conditioners with success.
Good products here too:
Yes, use either baby shampoo and cond, or simple.....dont wahs your hair as often and dont use heated rollers or dryers, let it dry naturally.
i use the shower , pour on the product and gently pat it well in, dont massage, let the shower rinse it off.
dont vigorously towel hair dry or use a hair dryer, if you can help it.
when you go for your cold cap take baby conditioner spray with you and a hair band as the nurse will damp your hair throroughly and then apply the cap, the hair band protects the edge of the scalp from burning
best of luck
