How to Pack Wigs and Hair Extensions for Travel Properly
Traveling with hair sets is not easy. It can be time-consuming, and a hassle at times. But when you have your perfect status on your vacation and look good on capture moments, it’s all worth it. There are some tips for packing wigs and hair extensions properly on the trip:
1. More Wigs, More Options
Bringing along two or three extra wigs to match the occasion and style will give you lots of options for a quick change. This will save you styling time on your trip and make you always look good. You can choose wig style based on your daily outfit or weather.
2. Keep Wigs in Dry and Clean Status
Make sure your wigs are in their best condition while being stored. Wigs and hair extensions should be totally dry, cleaned, and styled. First, you could detangle the knots by using a paddle brush to keep your strands separate and reduces breakage. Secondly, professional quality, lightweight detangling sprays are great for tackling daily tangles, just spritz mid-lengths of your hair to ends and comb through.
3. Wig Products/ Tools that You Might need During Travel
A mini paddle brush and lightweight detangling spray can help you easily detangle hair knots in any case.
Plus rat tail comb helps you separate the hair roots while you get it out.
A hair net is a small tool that makes a big difference, you could use it to cover the whole wig and extensions with extra hairpieces.
Wig shampoo, and conditioner: when you have to wash your wig, remember to take these with you.
Curling iron/Straightener: get yourself some of these heat tools and apply them to your hair by your need. But, when you need to carry your wig by the airline, please check with airport policy to make sure.
4. Travel with Wigs by Using Wig Case
ideally, I would suggest you pack your wig in a secure way so that the wig head and lace front can be secured on a wig head. A sturdy box or travel case that could hold a wig head would able to anti the crush and keep the wig stay in shape. If you’re on a road trip, carrying one or two wigs with wig heads might be a capable option. When it comes to flying trips, you might be wondering how to store more wig heads in your suitcase.
A medium-size wig case can solve that, with the wig head and adjustable string inside, you can perfectly set your wig separately and safely.
For hair extensions, first, using a hairnet to cover the extensions, you could choose an extension sorting bag to put in a box, or better, in a small size wig case. The reason why I recommend storing the wig and hair extension in a case or box is that, with a case, the hair extensions won’t have any damage. When you get them out, you could use less effort on restyling them from out of shape.

6. Wash Wigs or Hair Extensions on Trip
Traveling with your wig or hair extensions sometimes can be a challenge, as they might get hurt from heat, sun, humidity, and ocean waves. Although I don’t recommend wash wigs while traveling, sometimes it’s unavoidable. Please make sure you wash and dry the hair set totally, then you can put it into the wig travel case again.
