Wash your hair at home prior to the scalp cooling/chemotherapy session. Greasy hair may affect the thermal contact. However, avoid daily shampooing (to avoid wear of the hair), shampooing 1-2 times/week is suggested, shampoo less if your hair feels dry. Use lukewarm water (avoid hot water) and gentle shampoo that is sulfate and paraben free.
