Expert Tips for Storing Hair Systems 

Prepping hairpieces for storage is essential for a smooth and secure hair system application. You’ll risk damaging hairpieces when stored incorrectly, so it’s best to avoid this! But how do you properly store a hair system? We’ve got you covered! 

Follow these tips for safely storing hairpieces when not in use:  

Prep the Hairpiece for Storage 

Before putting hairpieces in storage, you’ll need to wash them first to make sure they’re clean. This helps prevent hair system damage due to oil, dirt, sweat, or dust build-up. The last thing you want is a ruined hairpiece before it can be worn again because of improper storage!  

It’s always best practice to clean a hairpiece after you remove it. In this case, you’re getting it ready for reapplication but then placing it in storage until ready for use. Gather the necessary supplies for cleaning the hair system, such as specially formulated hairpiece shampoo and conditioner.  

Start by using lukewarm water to rinse the hair system to get out any residue or remover. Next, add the shampoo to wash out any excess build-up left in the hairpiece. Rinse the hairpiece, then apply the conditioner, allowing it to sit for a few minutes. Rinse the conditioner out before moving on to the next step.  

Towel dry the hairpiece to get out that initial excess moisture. It’s recommended to then put the hairpiece on a hair system stand to allow it to air dry completely before storage. If you need to speed up the drying process, you can use a blow dryer on the lowest setting, but this can cause heat damage if done too often.  

The most important thing is ensuring the hairpieces are 100% dry before storage. Any moisture left in the hairpieces can result in damage, including mildew buildup. It’s very difficult to fix an issue of a still-damp hair system left in storage, so avoid it at all costs.   

Store the Hairpiece Correctly

Before storing the freshly cleaned hairpiece, you can explain the storage process to your client. This way, they’ll rest assured that their hairpiece (or hairpieces if they have more than one) will be safe until next time! The use of hair organization storage containers is the best route here. These containers are specifically made to store hairpieces safely and securely.  

Hairpieces are fragile, so any added weight can crush them, making them misshapen, deformed, and unwearable. These containers should be solid, sturdy, and keep out contaminants like dust and moisture. This is key in storing the hair system safely for the next application! 

Always keep these hair system containers away from direct sunlight. Store them in a dark, clean, and dry area. Light from the sun can be damaging, with UV rays causing the hair system to age faster. Moisture due to things like humidity can also damage hairpieces. Exposure to extreme heat or cold can ruin the hair system, so always store them at a comfortable room temperature. Designate a safe storage area or closet to keep these containers in for best results. 

Use the Right Products for Your Hair System Clients  

When working with your hair system clients, ensuring they’re happy with the final result is what matters most. Everything from the storage to the application and removal process should exceed their expectations. That’s what builds a loyal following for your services! Now that you know the proper way to prep and store hairpieces, you just need the right products to do your job to the best of your ability.
