Storing Wigs by, Ecouia (owner of Silky Saks)
Caring for your wig is an important part of its life-span. How you care for it can either increase or decrease its life-span. Styling, maintenance, and storage really plays a huge part. No matter if it’s synthetic or human all wigs will have to eventually be replaced. How you store your wig can do a lot to help prolong them.
Storing your wigs can be an uphill battle. Especially if you have a collection that is growing. Not to mention the importance of caring for your wig if you need it because of health reasons. This is why it’s so important to not just store your wigs in a practical way but also make sure that you maintain it. These are ways you can store your units.
Many people put their wigs back into the packaging it comes out of. Plastic bags are very common but you may find that overtime the hair sets out. They also can rip. Wig boxes are nice but you may find you run out of room quickly as your collection grows. Sometimes boxes especially can fall apart.
Wig heads are another option. You can find wig heads in many different sizes and materials. The collapsible wig heads are nicest in my opinion because they take up less room and travel easily if needed. Also like boxes they may take up space quickly if you have a big collection. The also don’t protect the wig from the elements around it so just keep that in mind.
Silky Saks are luxurious velvet bags that are made to not just store wigs and hair extensions but also to add longevity to them. Silk is a natural insulator so it helps to lock in moisture. Its silky surface allows the hair to glide while inside cutting down on tangling and matting. The silk also helps to preserve the wigs style. They close and can fold easily making them easy to store and travel with. Because of the convenience they are my favorite way to store my units. It also doesn’t hurt that I created them!
Properly storing your wig will help it last longer by protecting it. Caring for your wig will preserve it too. Never just shove it in your drawer or throw it in top of your dresser LOL! No matter how you choose to store it detangling it first always help. What is your method of storing wigs?
