Do cold caps work to reduce hair loss due to Procrit?

My mother was recently diagnosed with anemia and her doctor thinks she may have Myelodysplastic Syndrome and will start her on Procit soon.  I have read about people using cold caps during chemotherapy to prevent/reduce hair loss and want to know if anyone has used cold caps while on Procrit.  Did it help?  Do you have any other suggestions to help with hair loss?  Thank  you for responding.
