LET'S THROW IT BACK TO 1987

The Rapunzel Project is dedicated to creating awareness around cold cap therapy, which helps chemotherapy patients keep their hair during treatment.

You, as a stylist, have the power to help your clients save their hair

COLD CAP THERAPY SAVES HAIR DURING CHEMO

Special caps are cooled to a freezing temperature and worn before, during, and after chemo. The cooling of the hair follicles limits the number of chemo toxins that reach them, allowing patients to save most of their hair.

COLD CAPS EMPOWER PATIENTS

The goal is to make chemo a tolerable process without the residual reminder of illness caused by hair loss. Keeping one’s hair during chemo can be liberating by removing the “cancer patient” label, which can hopefully enhance one’s self-image, dignity, and morale during this challenging time.

MANUAL COLD CAPS

Manual cold caps use dry ice and can be used at any chemotherapy location. Some chemo centers have biomedical freezers to store the cold caps, making the process easier.

SCALP COOLING MACHINE SYSTEMS

These systems require neither dry ice nor freezers and are expected to become the primary cold cap method of the future.
