We could tell you how important scalp cooling is, or we can let a patient tell you why scalp cooling matters. Here is Rebecca’s scalp cooling story. 

“I thought I would share my TC experience (very belatedly given I finished chemo in July 2019). However, I do think it’s helpful to have a perspective 1.5 years out because my opinion of scalp cooling has changed pretty dramatically, for the better.  

Going through scalp cooling & chemo (4 rounds of TC), I wondered MANY MANY times if Paxman Scalp Cooling was worth it. I ultimately lost 60-70% of my hair and the Big Shed at day 18 was traumatic. Losing hair continuously for the next 4 months was emotional and frankly more taxing than the physical side effects of the chemo itself. I never wore a wig but got very creative with hair styling, brunette dry shampoo and Toppik. Many people around me didn’t know I was going through chemo, so in that sense, Paxman worked.  

In the months following chemo, I still wondered if it was worth it but I can now say with 100% certainty – IT IS. I have a full head of thick shoulder-length hair at only 20 months post final chemo (I started to LOVE my hair again at probably 12 months pfc). I still have some shorter regrowth but my stylist easily disguises these as layers. I was blessed with chemo curls in my regrowth but since I have naturally wavy hair, I can wear it short and curly if I choose.  

Hang in there all-this road is not for the faint of heart but I’ve come out the other side in a better place than if I hadn’t done Paxman.”
