Once you start getting a larger collection of wigs, you won’t be wearing the same wig every day...so what do you do with the other styles while you aren’t wearing them? Proper storage is vital to extending the life of your wigs, so here are a few ways to correctly store your wigs to ensure that they remain in their prime condition.
First and foremost, you want to keep your styles away from sunlight, heat, or dust as much as possible.
- For wigs that you wear more often, we suggest putting those on a wig stand or mannequin in a dry room where they can’t get ruined, such as your closet. This keeps them away from harm's reach since they are more likely to get damaged if you leave them out in the open.
- If you don’t have enough space for wig stands/heads or have too many wigs, we recommend investing in a wire rack to hold your styles. The rack will still keep your wigs safe while also allowing air to circulate through them, preserving their freshness.
- If there are some styles that you just don’t wear as often anymore, you can keep them in a sturdy container or their original packaging and put them away for proper long-term storage. Before you stash them away for a long period of time, always make sure they are clean, untangled, and folded nicely.
- If you plan on traveling with your wigs, use a durable portable container, like the Amy Gibson ResQ bags, to store your wig so that it doesn’t get crushed, tangled, or lose it’s shape in your suitcase. Check out our video on traveling with your wigs for more detail!
If you follow these expert storage tips, then you will prolong the life of your wigs and get to wear your gorgeous styles even longer!
