What can I say. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and after a three week post surgery recovery I had to start chemo. One of the first things I asked my doctor in the hospital was would chemo cause my hair to fall out. He immediately said yes. I was devastated. A friend referred me to cold caps. My doctor encouraged me to cut my hair as I had long thick hair. I finally told him I was going to do cold caps and if it fell out it will fall out long. (I am a bit stubborn) The first month of chemo was nerve racking. My hair started to thin and every time I washed my hair I thought omg this is it. I cried with every hair wash But my hair was still there. After a few months I became hopeful. My hair was thinning but still very much there!! Each week closer to the end of chemo was amazing seeing how much hair I still had!! People would specifically check on my hair status because they too were so happy my hair was still there!! I had an amazing cold caps team that came to all my treatments with me! I can’t thank Polar Cold Caps enough for the gift of keeping my hair during intensive weekly chemo!!
Satisfied is an understatement with the results I have had with Polar Caps.
The date was October 26, 2016 when I heard the words nobody wants to hear "you have cancer." All the emotions you fear go through your mind that most people have when going through a cancer diagnosis. The doctors and nurses helped but when it comes to losing your hair I did not receive much hope. When a nurse casually mention Polar Caps I was cautiously optimistic. (This despite the supposed low success rate for the chemotherapy I was having). I am so happy I used the polar caps I now have a full head of hair at the end of my treatment.
The customer service was outstanding. They held my hand along the way. The results were so good I am now a testimony to the other chemo patients where I was treated. I cannot tell you how much I am thankful for how much keeping my hair has helped me with my recovery. Thank you Polar Caps!
Hi! I just wanted to pass on a quick note about how happy I am with my polar cold caps.
My wife and I wanted to let you and your company know that my wife has been using the cold caps and they have worked!!! We are currently sitting at the oncologist's office receiving her fourth of six chemotherapy treatments and my wife has kept every bit of her hair. She has been gentle with her hair and says she probably hasn't lost as much as she normally does from day to day brushing, washing, etc... Thank you for your product!
Voicemail Testimonial From Linda in Chicago:
Polar Cold Caps worked outstanding!!! No hair loss, but normal shedding. I had a very strong chemo cocktail & the CAPS worked! Follow the instruction to a T, for success!!! - Michele
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I did some research to see if I could do anything to keep my hair, that's when I found Polar Cold Caps. Everyone was skeptical but I knew I had to try and it worked!!! I just finished my last chemo treatment and still have 75% of my hair!
This was my daughters wedding the day before my final chemo,. I am the one on the right :)
Thank you Polar Cold Caps!!!!!
Thanks Stephanie. I sent them out Fedex Ground today.
I appreciated the cold caps while they worked and they got me through the summer with hair - which was important for swimming with my kids.
I have been extremely happy to have been able to keep my hair which helped me feel a little more in control and certainly helped with getting through some important events during the holiday season. I now have the next phase of my journey to complete and will be able to do it with my hair. I have also shared your information with many other cancer patients at MD Anderson, including my oncologist.
Thanks so much,
Dear Polar Cold Caps Staff,
I would like to take this time to thank you for this wonderful product. My mother was diagnosed with cancer a bit earlier this year and had to receive both chemotherapy and radiation. It has been a very grueling time for us all, and she was very adamant about not telling the whole family and her boyfriend, as they had just started dating. This product allowed her to fib her way through it. Amidst trials and tribulations the caps held true, she had absolutely no hair loss and looks forward to the wedding pictures at my cousins nuptials, another concern that was resolved through your product. Thank you once more I will greatly recommend this product, I have also included a card of the dry ice provider we used. They were exceptionally accommodating and considerate, so that if anyone asks you who to use for their supply in South Florida that's the guy to go to. Thank you once more for making this difficult time a bit more bearable.
Thank you for saving my hair. - Ross
Thank you so much. Yesterday was a day of celebration to be done with chemo and with a full head of hair. I only lost a little hair along my hairline, which is not noticeable to anyone. I do believe they are the best on the market. After all my research initially, the testimonials were very much the deciding factor.
Hello, I am hoping that you have received the cold caps, they were to arrive at your facility today 6/18/18. I finished my chemo treatments 6/13/18. I have had absolutely no hair loss. Thanks for everything. - Lou
So far, the caps have worked great! I've lost some hair, but the majority is still there, and no one but me can tell it's thinned. I'm hoping that continues throughout the last treatment. Thank you so much for your fantastic product! -Melissa
Dear Everyone at Polar Cold Caps,
Happily, and with hair on my head, I am returning the caps. They served my purpose beautifully and I am very grateful.
Thank you so so so much,
Thank you for helping me keep my hair! - Tracie
Thank you! I feel great and am optimistic about my progress. The other patients at the clinic were very curious about my cold caps. It was a big topic of conversation. 😄 I was the first patient there to use them there. My doctors want to make it an option for others, too. The polar caps worked! My hair is intact. 😊 A great success.
The cold caps and containers are enclosed. Thanks for the service. They worked. A lot of the forehead velcro was getting weak in the last few weeks but not enough to cause an issue. Thanks for your help. - Pat
So far so good.Melanie finished her last chemo treatment yesterday and all of te nurses , doc's , friends & family are impressed and surprised at how little hair she's lost. If you didn't know she had chemo you would not even think twice that she has lost any hair at all.
Now on to the next stages. Surgery on Nov 20th then radiation.
A few questions...
I will be sending the cold caps and their containers back to you tomorrow. What do you think...Postal Service or UPS ???
Anything special that I should do when I send them back?
Now that chemo is over, what hair restrictions does Melanie have.I told her she can't color it or pur chemicals in it for 3 monthes but does that apply to hair spray?? Can she go back to her old shampoo? Conditioner? Back to her old toothpaste? Deodorant?
Can she use a hair dryer? Curling iron? Should she still wash her hair infrequently???
Just don't want to have her do something wrong now that we have made it this far.
Thanks for your help...and thanks for your cold caps...
Have a great weekend !!
