I dreaded the hair loss as much as the treatment itself. It is a constant reminder and an obvious/outward sign of the “C” diagnosis. My 88-year-old mother as well as many others were so relieved to see me “looking normal.”

By saving my hair I was able to go to work as a Health & Physical Education teacher and do my job without my students knowing what I was going through. I was able to look at myself in the mirror and not look sick, that was the best part of saving my hair.

DigniCap allowed me to keep my struggle private, which in turn helped me to maintain my self-esteem and gave me a sense of well being.

I did it because so much had already been stripped away and I wanted control over one thing.
I thought if I could keep this one thing, it would be encouragement for me as I moved forward with my treatment .

After 10 weeks, I have not lost a single hair on my head. I still have all the hats I bought sitting in their original packets. Besides the usual, normal shedding in the shower, nothing…I waited for clumps, I waited for heavy shedding. So far nothing. This was with Taxol/Carboplatin.

“I decided that keeping my hair was really important to me. I didn’t know how I was going to feel going through chemotherapy, and if I felt good, I wanted to look myself and feel myself. I knew that I was on a very long journey and I wanted to feel good for as long as I could.”

Every morning my husband greeted me with “Good morning….you still have all your hair.” I literally ran my hands through it each morning to make sure. My last day of chemotherapy is this coming Tuesday. I’ll miss all the time it gives one to relax. I’ll also miss the staff with their kindness and empathy, but thanks to DigniCap I will not miss my hair!!!

Cancer is shocking, things like keeping your hair may seem small when faced with the treatment ahead of you, but I soon realized that it matters, you need to feel normal! I also kept working full time thru my whole treatment, so hair on my head seemed like a good thing to have.

DigniCap helped me emotionally through treatment and it helped my children to not see the harsh side effects of chemotherapy. I finished my final chemotherapy treatment in November and I still have my hair.

Ivana | California

For me, hair is my favorite thing about my appearance and I knew if I lost that, I would be depressed for this entire period. With preserving my hair, I was able to go to work and most people don’t know what I am going through, and that’s how I wanted it to stay.

When you get diagnosed with cancer, there is very little you can control. I couldn’t control my physical feelings or my emotional feelings during treatment, I couldn’t control my long commutes to undergo the treatment, or having to take a leave from work, but being able to keep my hair, and look in the mirror, gave me some control over a really scary situation.

For anyone who’s going through cancer and getting DigniCap you won’t go wrong. With everything I’ve been through, I still feel like the beautiful woman I was before I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Some doctors/studies say that losing your hair is harder than the actual diagnosis itself. It’s true. I was able to still feel like myself, get up on stage and confidently perform in a sketch comedy show at week 12 on chemo. I just finished 20 rounds of chemo (5 months)! I’m so thankful to still have a near-perfect full head of hair.

DigniCap Patient | North Carolina

I lost around 10 percent of my hair during the three-month period, never developed any bald spots and my hair looked good throughout treatment. This was a boost to my self-esteem and helped me feel “normal” in a situation that was anything but that.

Cancer sucks and it takes so much away from us but one thing we can keep and maintain is our hair, thanks to DigniCap and their amazing people. Thank you for being there for me when I needed the most. Thank you for this amazing technology and making it available to us.

Just the possibility of keeping that part of me–healthy me–was so empowering–that I could, at least on the outside, be the same person I was prior to my diagnosis.
