Lace Fronts Australia Wig Blog Wig Tips

Whether you’re new to wigs or a seasoned wig enthusiast, these tips will help you keep your Lace Fronts Australia wig looking fabulous for longer.

Why Proper Storage Matters

Proper storage of your lace front wig is crucial for several reasons:

  • Maintains Shape and Style: Ensures your wig retains its original style and shape.
  • Prevents Tangling: Minimizes tangling and knotting, which can damage the wig fibers.
  • Prolongs Lifespan: Protects your wig from environmental factors that can degrade its quality over time.

Choose the Right Storage Method

The storage method you choose will depend on how long you plan to store your wig and the available space. Here are a few options:

  • Satin Bag: Use the satin bag that your wig comes with. Satin helps reduce friction, preventing frizz and tangling. It’s a compact option ideal for both short-term and long-term storage.
  • Canvas Head: If you have a canvas head, it’s perfect for maintaining the shape and style of your wig. Place the wig on the canvas head and cover it with a satin scarf to protect it from dust.
  • Towel Rack: If you don’t have a canvas head, a towel rack can be a handy alternative. Roll up a towel and drape the wig over it to maintain its shape.
  • Clamp Hanger: For an easy and practical solution, use one of our Lace Fronts Australia clamp hangers. These hangers are designed to securely hold your wig without causing damage, making them perfect for both short-term and long-term storage.

Store in a Cool, Dry Place

Wigs are sensitive to environmental factors like humidity, heat, and sunlight. When storing your wig:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade the color and weaken the fibers.
  • Keep Away from Heat Sources: Store your wig away from heaters, ovens, and other heat sources to prevent damage.
  • Control Humidity: High humidity can cause the wig fibers to swell and frizz. Use a dehumidifier if necessary, especially in more humid parts of Australia.

Additional Tips for Wig Care

  • Regular Maintenance: Even in storage, periodically check your wig for tangles or dust accumulation.
  • Rotate Wigs: If you own multiple wigs, rotate them to reduce wear and tear on any single wig.
  • Use Wig Caps: Wearing a wig cap can protect the inside of your wig from oils and sweat, extending the time between washes.

Storing your lace front wig properly is an essential part of wig care that can significantly extend its lifespan and keep it looking its best. By following these storage tips, you can ensure that your Lace Fronts Australia wig remains in pristine condition, ready to give you a flawless look whenever you need it. Investing a little time in proper storage now will save you time and money in the long run, keeping your wig collection stunning and stylish.
