In brief: Sometimes

It is very uncomfortable and cumbersome but works in some patients.
The hair loss during chemotherpay is completely reversible and usually 100 days after end of all chemotherapy your hair will grow back.

In brief: Sometimes

Don't count on it, but i've seen it work.
It takes a lot of motivation, and, can be a little uncomfortable. But, if motivated, worth a try!
