The Rapunzel Project is a non-profit organization founded by two cancer survivors and dedicated to helping chemotherapy patients keep their hair during treatment
Breakthrough technology called “Cold Cap Therapy” offers chemotherapy patients a way to save their hair.
YOU, AS A STYLIST
have the power to save your client's hair.
We welcome your help spreading the word about cold cap therapy.
THE HAIR IS SAVED WITH COLD CAP THERAPY
Special caps are cooled to an extremely cold temperature and worn for a period of time before, during and after chemo. The cooling of the hair follicles limits the amount of chemo toxins that reach them, allowing most patients to save most of their hair.
COLD CAPS EMPOWER PATIENTS
making chemo a process to be tolerated, without the residual reminder of illness caused by hair loss. Keeping one’s hair can help liberate a patient from the “cancer patient” label and enhance self-image, dignity and morale – vital elements of overall wellness.
MANUAL COLD CAPS CAN BE USED AT ANY CHEMOTHERAPY LOCATION
using the dry ice method. Some supportive chemo centers have biomedical freezers to store the patient's cold caps, which makes the process easier.
SCALP COOLING MACHINE SYSTEMS
require neither dry ice nor freezers and are more expected to become the primary cold cap method of the future.
