Whether you’re using a synthetic wig or a real human hair wig, there is always the issue of how to store your wigs properly to help maintain their life span.

2. However, for long-term storage, you need to take a few more steps.

  • First off, make sure the wig is clean and untangled, using your usual methods and supplies.
  • Once you verify the cleanliness of your wig, attempt to find the original plastic packaging or another approved wig container, making sure to take precautions against any crushing.
  • Fold the wig in half, ear to ear, and place into the packaging. From there, make sure you keep it in an environment that is moderate in temperature and dry.
  • When you’re ready to use it again, all it takes is a little maintenance!
