Satin Pillow Case
Satin pillowcases are a more affordable option than silk, but still retain all of the benefits of silk in protecting fragile chemo hair. Unlike cotton, satin is non-absorbent, which means these pillow cases are ideal for helping to retain moisture in your hair (and skin – an added bonus). Moisturised hair is less prone to breakage and with satin's smooth surface your hair will also be less likely to knot and tangle. Pillowcase measures 49cm x 73cm and has an envelope opening. Colour light grey.
Cooling Lavender Gel Pillow
Cooling gel cushion absorbs and transfers heat away from the body to help you get a good night’s sleep
Use directly or insert the cooling gel pad into your pillowcase with no refrigeration required to maintain an optimal temperature for quality sleep. Rapid relief and support for neck pain, migraines and tension headaches and helps to regulate temperature during fevers and night sweats that could be caused due to chemotherapy treatment. Therapeutic gel pad with lightly fragrant lavender helps to sooth and relax so as you can switch off your mind at night. Slim and portable 50 x 40 cm cooling pad that is easy to travel with, providing several hours of cooling relief
Memory Foam Neck Cushion
After surgery your loved one may have difficulty finding a comfortable sleeping position and many people resort to sleeping in an upright position for a short while after surgery. This memory foam neck cushion will enable your loved one to sleep in a number of positions and can support the head and neck if sleeping upright, or can be used to brace other painful areas and is substantial enough to be used as an arm rest or to relieve underarm pressure to sensitive surgical areas. Size: 27cm x 27cm x 8cm approx.
