Question: How to pack the wig correctly?


To maintain your wig cap shape, it is better for you to wrap your wig cap with scrunched tissue paper.

Next, you had better comb your wig hair to prevent tangle. Then, roll the whole hair net over the entire wig ( it may take time if your hair wig is long). This step will help to reduce tangling.

After wrapping your hair over the whole wig, put it into a bag. It is better to use a plastic bag or a silk bag for a friendly environment.

You may wonder why we do not recommend you use a wig box instead. It’s because a bag will save the space in your suitcase and help to comfort your wig.

Lastly, leave a small amount of air inside the bag and then seal the bag to protect your wig without getting squished.

Question: Do I have to remove my wig when airport security checks?

Answer: No for sure!

Just like your outfits, wigs can be seen through by the airport security machines. Moreover, it is unusual for the Transportation Security Administration to request you to take off your wig.

The only case you must take off your wig for security check is when they detect something hidden under your wig. To prevent this situation from happening, we advise you to limit wearing too many mental pins to secure your wigs, which can set off a sensor as well as raise suspicion.

If the Transportation Security Administration asks you to remove your wig and you feel uncomfortable and unsafe to do it in front of many people at the security check area, discreetly tell the security that you are using a wig and you hope to take it off in a private room. They will allow you to do it in a private place so that you will not feel too stressed when removing your wig.
