With or without scalp cooling
Even with scalp cooling, drug regimes often cause total hair loss and for some people, their hair regrows very strangely after chemotherapy. Patchy, slow regrowth, changes in natural colour, texture and movement.
With the added support of Daniel Field products
Every one of these issues could be prevented with the added support of Daniel Field products.
If you combine scalp cooling with Daniel's Scalp Cooling Booster System, you would expect to limit hair loss to a maximum of 10% of your hair per chemo cycle with the bulk of these losses evident on the crown area.
Daniel has an Instant Restorer System which clients use very successfully to camoflarge this crown area convincingly until it grows back.
The most common regime is EC-P – 3/4 x epirubicin and cyclophosphamide every 3 weeks followed by12 weeks paclitaxol (Taxol®)
If you are also using Daniel Field's Hair Growth Active twice a day throughout, the hair starts to regrow back during the Paclitaxol, (Taxol®) cycles.
Permanent hair loss from docetaxel (Taxotere®) occurs in 3.5% of cases but so far seems to be prevented if you combine scalp cooling with Daniel's Scalp Cooling Booster System and use Hair Growth Active throughout.
If you are just having Paclitaxol alone, (Taxol®) with scalp cooling and Daniel Field's Scalp Cooling Booster System, people tend to keep all their hair. throughout.
Hair can also become damaged from the extreme cold generated by scalp cooling. All hair damage can be prevented by combining scalp cooling and Daniel's Scalp Cooling Booster System.
A good example of a hair deformity caused by chemo is called chemo curls even with scalp cooling. This can be prevented if you combine scalp cooling with Daniel's Scalp Cooling Booster System and use Hair Growth Active throughout. Daniel's team can also reverse chemo curls. We find Special Weekly Detox Treatment and Hair Growth Active use stops also this happening again .
Permanent hair loss from docetaxel (Taxotere®) occurs in 3.5% of cases and we have found this can be reversed to some extent with the use of Special Weekly Detox Treatment and Hair Growth Active
After chemo, those with hormone-related cancers are often put on hormone blockers. This can cause hair thinning and to prevent this we recommend our Special Weekly Detox Treatment for 3 minutes ongoing and the continued use of Hair Growth Active if required.
Whatever regime you are on as long as you are having scalp cooling and using the products Daniel recommends throughout chemo, we find our clients certainly have enough hair for our team to continue providing hairdressing services throughout. Daniel's favorite wigmakers are called Raoul Wigs. Daniel used to send every new client there 'just in case' but as no one needed to come back to actually pick up their wig he was asked to stop automatically referring them!
Daniel provides special chemo-safe hair colour and lightening products enabling women to safely continue colouring their hair before, during and after chemotherapy treatment.
Hair Growth Active
Daniel's Hair Growth Active seems to keep your hair growing faster throughout chemo and beyond. With this product's proper use, all lost hairs should regrow back more quickly and just as thick and healthily as before.
Skin and scalp side effects
Most chemo related skin and scalp side effects can be controlled with Daniel’s advice and his specialist skin and scalp products. Permanent causes of skin damage such as hyper pigmentation and chemically induced premature skin aging, can be prevented and often reversed with Daniel’s advice and specialist skin products.
