We all know wigs can be a little pricey, so you want to invest in caring for your wig. Storing your wig correctly is important to promoting the longevity of your wig and to make sure it lasts a long time. Today, let's see how Janna Nikki store her wigs.

How To Store A Wig 1

Mannequin Head

The best way to store your wig is on a mannequin head. The mannequin head is pretty much the same size as a human head, so it will keep the shape of your wig well. Also, it has a face, so they kind of have a personality and you can see what the hair would look like on a face.

Styrofoam head

There are a few different Styrofoam heads you can get. You can get ones with a longer neck if you have a wig with long hair or you can get a short neck Styrofoam head for shorter length wigs. The only thing about these is that they are Styrofoam, so they're super light and they feel less stable, but other than that they are a nice cheaper alternative to a mannequin head.

Portable Hanging Wig Stand

You can just plop the wig on the hanger and hang it in the closet. The only disadvantage of this hanger is that the wig is a little lumpy and bumpy on the hanger. If you really want to maintain the shape of your wig, I would recommend one of the mannequin head options.

Wig bag

Sometimes, you may need to travel with your wig, so a wig bag would be the best option. 

The great thing about wig bags is that they come in silk options, and there are so many benefits to keeping your wigs and your hair in silk. It helps to retain the moisture in your hair, reduces frizz and breakage and is overall gentler with your hair.
