We don't want to shave one more head before chemo! Did you know there is an option that can help to reduce or eliminate hair loss with chemo treatments?
It's Cold Cap Therapy! Also known as Scalp Cooling, it involves the use of a special cap that is cooled to very cold temperatures, and worn for some time before, during and after each chemotherapy treatment. The cool temperatures constrict the blood vessels leading to the hair follicles. This temporarily pauses hair growth activity which reduces the chances of the chemotherapy drug reaching the follicle, thus reducing hair loss!
The Rapunzel Project is working hard to get the word out there about this therapy, knowing many woman do not even know the options that exist to them! Learn more about Cold Cap Therapy in this video.

Having some personal experiences of loved ones in our lives that have experienced cancer....we feel this incredible desire to get this information out to the people who need it most, so that they know they have an option to save their hair! Unfortunately this is not a well known therapy, so Zoi'A Spa & Salon is partnering with Rapunzel Project, MercyHealth Development Foundation & A Glo Spa & Salon in Janesville, Wisconsin to help bring awareness about this hair saving treatment to our community. If you or your business would like to get involved to help spread the word, we are happy to add you to our mission partner group!
