As we are an FDA-regulated company we cannot endorse specific brand-name products (like shampoo) to use in conjunction with scalp cooling. 

Use a gentle shampoo that is sulfate and paraben free and lukewarm water (avoid hot water). Avoid harsh chemicals that can lead to dry hair, breakage, progressive hair thinning and hair loss such as the following:

  • Parabens (such a methylparaben and propylparaben) are chemicals that are used as preservatives
  • Sodium laurel sulfate is a foaming agent and will remove natural oils in the hair
  • Silicones that are used to tame or “de-frizz” the hair work by coating the hair strands.


Daniel Field is a company from the UK that has developed a line of products for patients undergoing chemotherapy, including some products specifically designed to protect hair during scalp cooling.
