Cold Capping Accessories - Penguin Cold Caps

Cold Capping Accessories - Penguin Cold Caps

I started chemo on April 23, 2019. These are the links to the items that I am using with the Penguin Cold Caps. I ordered the Penguin Cold Caps 'without' the cooler'.

Penguin supplies black bands, but you need extra velcro strips to tighten up loose spots:
Monoprice Hook & Loop Fastening Tape 5 Yard/roll, 0.75-inch - Black (105828)

Penguin supplies a thermometer, but this thermometer checks all areas of the cap not just the middle:
Etekcity Lasergrip 774 Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer Temperature Gun -58℉~ 716℉ (-50℃ ~ 380℃), Yellow and Black

Penguin will supply a cooler, but you will have to pay extra shipping costs. It's cheaper to buy it:
Igloo Ice Cube Roller Cooler (60-Quart, Ocean Blue)

Your ears need to be covered, and I'm using these:
Sprigs Earbags Bandless Ear Warmers/Fleece Earmuffs with Thinsulate - Brown, Large

Penguin supplies 1 pair of gloves, but I have 3 sets of gloves for my helpers:
Superior Winter Work Gloves - Fleece-Lined with Black Tight Grip Palms (Cold Temperatures) SNTAPVC – Size Medium

One of the ladies on the Cold Capping site recommended this electric blanket, and it is the best:
Biddeford 6001-9051136-635 Electric Heated Micro Mink/Sherpa Blanket, Full, Sage

Shampooing during cold capping requires a low PH shampoo:
Malibu C Swimmers Wellness Shampoo, 9 fl. oz.

I purchased this spray conditioner so that it won't touch the scalp:
Ion Swimmer's Leave-in Conditioner - 8 oz.

The ladies on the cold capping site recommend a silk pillowcase to reduce hair loss:
Ravmix 100% Pure Natural Mulberry Silk Pillowcase Queen for Hair and Skin with Hidden Zipper, 21 Momme 600TC Hypoallergenic Soft Breathable Slip Pillow Cover 1pcs (20×30inches, Ivory White)

I use this hair net under my Penguin cold cap:
Ovation Deluxe Hair Net Pack of 2 Light Brown

Penguin supplies a wide tooth comb, but I also purchased this on a recommendation from the youtube video:
J&D Beauty Wet Pro Epic Quick Dry Brush

This is my capper Anita who is doing a fantastic job:
