It helped me have the confidence to not feel so insecure and depressed, giving me the positivity and strength to push through this second time around. I am forever grateful for DigniCap.
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!!!
Keeping most of my hair was great because it wasn’t a constant reminder to myself that I was sick. Thanks, Dignitana for this wonderful option.
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.
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.
I was the first person at Saint Joseph Cancer Center to use the Delta system. I followed all the instructions and had absolutely no hair loss whatsoever!

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.
Keeping most of my hair was great because it wasn’t a constant reminder to myself that I was sick. Thanks Dignitana for this wonderful option.
No one wants to be sick or look sick, and thanks to DigniCap I didn’t have to.
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.
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.
It has now been over 6 months since my last chemo treatment. Thanks to DigniCap I was able to keep my hair and my dignity. And I am now cancer free. I am so blessed!
I was thrilled with the results overall. The fact that I went through 3 months of chemo and strangers would never know I was a cancer patient was very rewarding.
DigniCap not only helped me in the obvious physical sense but also helped me mentally work through my sometimes difficult chemotherapy.
I count my blessings each day and I was very fortunate to be able to use DigniCap. Thanks to DigniCap I was able to preserved my hair, which was very important to me. My friends are amazed that I still have hair.
I feel like cold capping helped me continue to date, work, and live my life as normal as possible. I had control over who knew my story.
To me, looking normal as far as the outside, is the only way I made it through chemo without getting severely depressed on the inside. I owe this to the DigniCap and hope that others will get inspired and learn that there are options.
