When a human hair wig is not in use, place it on a wig stand, mannequin head, or Styrofoam head. These are the best places to store a human hair wig, as they can help to maintain the shape and style of the wig. They are the perfect option for long-term storage.
Storing human hair wigs in a box is perfect for the short-term. Simply comb through the wig and wrap it in a hairnet, and then place it in a box with the clips closed. Hairnets are an easy way to wrap wigs, especially if the wig is being stored in a box or a bag. They’re great for keeping the hair from getting tangled.
You can also store a human hair wig in a clean plastic zip lock bag, or even better, a silk or velvet bag to keep it soft. Comb through the wig and wrap it in a hair net before storing it in a bag. Storing a human hair wig in a bag is also a great option when traveling.
Keep in mind that human hair wigs should never be stored where they are exposed to direct sunlight or excess heat. These two factors will dull the color of the wig and affect the hair fibers. It’s best to store human hair wigs in a cool and dry place.
