Scalp cooling is a method of preventing the loss of hair from the head during some types of chemotherapy. It works by reducing the blood supply to the hair follicles where the hair grows. This means that less of the chemotherapy reaches the hair follicles and so the hair is less likely to fall out.

Scalp cooling itself can sometimes give you a headache and some people find it makes them feel generally cold whilst they are having it. Apart from these slight discomforts there are no side-effects from scalp cooling.

sclap cooling is not physical action. It is meant to keep oneself cool in any circumstances. In other words not to be angree, aggresive or hostile. If it is a physical requirement than one can keep a lot of ice on his head for cooling the sclape but it would freeze it rather cooling it. Be a pateient behaviour person keeping your tempermant cool.

Example sentence(s):
  • not to loose onc"s mind in adverse circumstances
