As you are already familiar with the fundamentals of hair topper care such as washing, styling, and attachment, the next step is to master proper storage techniques. Effective storage is crucial for maintaining the fresh and flawless appearance of The Hair Real’s 100% Natural Human Hair toppers. Here are our top tips for ensuring that your hair topper is kept in optimal condition between wears.
- MASTER YOUR TOPPER BEFORE STORING IT
Before storing your hair topper, it’s essential to ensure that it’s properly groomed. Not as you would put dirty clothes away in a washing machine. You shouldn’t store your hairpiece without first detangling it. Use a wide-tooth comb for best results. It’s also a good idea to check whether it requires a wash. If you’ve worn it 6-8 times, it’s likely time to clean and condition it. Always use hair care products that are specifically formulated for your topper.
- NEVER STORE A TOPPER THAT IS STILL DAMP
It’s crucial to never store a damp hair topper. All our hair toppers are made of 100% Single Donor Human Hair authentically sourced from south Indian temples. Being real hair, moisture can cause hair fibres to attract mold and dust. To avoid this, always allow your topper to dry completely before storing it. Place it on a wig stand or mannequin head to dry thoroughly, ensuring that all parts are fully dried before packing it.
- HOW LONG DO YOU WANT TO STORE?
Consider the duration of storage while choosing where to keep your topper. If you wear it daily, a wig stand is a convenient option to store it overnight. However, if you only wear it occasionally or alternate between multiple hairpieces, it’s best to keep it protected in an air-tight box.
- KEEP AWAY FROM EXCESSIVE HEAT AND POLLUTION
To protect your topper, it’s important to avoid exposing it to excessive heat and pollution. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures or dust can cause the hair to lose its color and become weak.
- FIND A SAFE LOCATION
Store your toppers at a place inaccessible to curious children and pets, who may inadvertently damage your hair toppers, or more precisely your hair investments with The Hair Real.
