Penguin Cold Caps

Penguin Cold Caps

Penguin Cold Caps are well established world-wide as a successful system for reducing or preventing practically all chemotherapy induced hair loss.

More than 80% of users can save their hair – preventing that very visible sign of Cancer and retaining their dignity and self-confidence.

By continuously applying precisely cooled crylon gel caps to the scalp, before, during and after intravenous chemotherapy, the blood vessels beneath the skin are narrowed, reducing the amount of toxic chemicals that reach the hair follicles.

After more than 15 years of use overseas, Penguin Cold Caps are now available in New Zealand.

We supply you with an easy to use, pre-cooled kit which you hire during your treatment and provide individual guidance and instruction.

    Hi Shocking Pink,
    My name is Kathryn Sherriff and I am a practice nurse working for a Breast Surgeon in Invercargill. I understand that we may be able to purchase a cool cap for possible hair saving when having Chemotherapy and am interested in any advice/ help you are able to give regarding this.
    I have been in contact with the trail in Nelson , plus read of this study on line.
    In my personal situation I have my daughter in law ( Kate Sherriff 47yrs) who unfortunately has bilateral HER2 +ve aggressive breast cancer and is about to undergo neo adjuvant chemotherapy here in Invercargill.
    I am Kate’s next of kin and she has asked if I could obtain any relevant information that may be helpful.. whilst she under goes Chemotherapy ( yet to commence) in the hope of maintaining some of her lovely hair.
    Many thanks

      Hi Serena, apologies but the Penguin Cold Caps business in New Zealand has closed. There may be other places in NZ that you can rent them from.
