Do you like wearing wigs? How often do you change your wig? Do you know how to store wigs? Buying a wig is a major investment in recent years, and storing a wig correctly, along with proper care, will help preserve it and ensure it will remain in top condition for years to come. However, a lot of people don't know if we buy a wig is needed to store, although the need for human hair and synthetic wigs sculpt method is slightly different, but the two types of wig is the same.

Using proper storage techniques,it will help your to keep the new wig for many years to come. I'm going to tell you exactly how to store wigs. This blog is for you!

I. Factors affecting wig storage

1. Place of storage

You need to put the wig in the original wig box, and some people will ask, what kind of box is it? After you buy a wig, the seller will put the wig in a box and deliver it to you. This box can be used to store wigs for a long time, and this box can be stacked with multiple wigs, and each wig has a label for easy use. 

If you don't have the original wig box, you can also fold the wig in half from your ear, place it in a clean plastic bag, and put tissue inside the wig cap to help it hold its shape. It's also an easy way to travel with a wig and save space.
If you have a variety of wigs and you use them frequently in your daily life, I recommend buying a wig shelf that can store multiple wigs. Wig shelf also helps with styling, as they allow wigs to fall naturally, making them easier to shape.
You can also have an airtight plastic container for your wig. Each wig was then labeled with the name and color of each wig it contained. It's easy to use. 

different ways for wig storage
Mannequin or wig “heads” can also be used for wig storage. Be careful of sizing because storing on this type of head can stretch the wig cap it’s too large. They often cost more than the others and are not travel friendly. Also, they take up space.
The lightweight styling foam heads are similar to the mannequin heads but less costly, and they are a bit more substantial than a wig stand. They do help keep the wig in shape and are great for those who keep a few wigs out at all times in a rotation. But are not great for travel, of course.
So, the answer is, get all the storage tools if you can. They each serve a different purpose.

2. Condition of the wig in storage

Before storing your wig, you must confirm what state your wig is in, dry or wet? Clean or dirty? If your wig is not clean, this means you need to wash your wig and make sure it is completely dry or blow-dried, especially for human hair wig. Even the slightest amount of moisture can cause mold on your wig when it's kept in the dark for a long time. After washing your wig, be sure to wait until it dries. If you can't wait for it to dry completely, use a heat protectant and hair dryer to speed up the process.
Storing dirty wigs allows bacteria to build up on them. To make sure your wig stays fresh and conditioned when you're ready to take it out, wash and condition it first, and untie it.

A lot of people in daily use, if there are too many wigs, it is a waste of time to choose, in a hurry condition may pile up wigs, this approach is not desirable. To avoid wear and tangles, fold your wig and store it flat in a storage bin or bag.

In the long run, direct sunlight can wreak havoc on your hair fibers, making them weaker and darker. To avoid this, we store wigs in a cool, dry place and away from heat or direct sunlight. And when you go out, it's best to use an umbrella to properly protect your wig and avoid exposing it to the sun for a long time. Wigs also have vitality, we need to care carefully.

II. Conclusion
