Wig travel guide: how to travel with a wig

Have you encountered this situation? When you are going to travel with a wig for the first time, but you don’t know how to maintain it during the journey, or what products and tools you should bring. Now, to help you have a pleasant trip, you can read the following tips on how to travel with a wig.


How to pack a travel wig

Many people often ask a question: "How do I pack a travel wig?". If there is enough space, you can put the fake on the wig rack or styling head, and then put it in the suitcase, which helps to maintain the wig's shape and style.

Or to keep your lace wig safe during the trip, you can also comb your hair to remove any knots or tangles, then plug the wig cap with rolled tissue paper to keep the shape of the wig cap, and then wrap a large hair net in Keep everything in place throughout the wig. Finally, don’t forget to replace the wig box with a plastic bag (or a silk bag if you have one), because it saves luggage space and helps cushion the wig. At the same time, leave a little air in the bag, and then seal it to prevent your wig from being squashed and avoid getting damp.

If possible, we recommend storing your wig in a silk bag to prevent it from being soiled, tangled or damaged by other things in your suitcase.

What wig care products/tools should I bring when traveling?

In addition to storing your lace front wig in a silk bag, be sure to bring some necessary hairdressing products and some styling tools to care and style your natural hair under the wig cap.

A Portable Wig Stand

When you travel with a wig, a small and portable travel wig holder will be a very useful accessory.

On the one hand, when you are not wearing a wig, you can put it on a portable wig holder, which can perfectly fix the shape of your wig without wrinkles or tangles. Naturally, it is also very helpful for your wig styling. On the other hand, the travel wig holder is portable, so it will not take up the space of your suitcase.

What if you don’t have any space in your suitcase for a portable wig holder? It is a good idea to use a hotel ice bucket or lampshade to support the wig. Of course, just don't turn on the lights!

Wig brush
For a wig brush, you can use a mouse tail comb to comb any tangles or parts of hair in the middle or side.

Shampoo and conditioner
Your human hair wig may become wet or dirty during your journey. Therefore, it is best to bring some shampoo and conditioner to clean them.

Although it is convenient to wash your wig with hotel shampoo and conditioner, it is best to bring a travel-sized separate shampoo and conditioner bottle, which is more friendly to your wig. After all, natural hairdressing products leave a lot of obvious deposits, and if you wear a wig, you can’t wash them off. In addition, if you wash your wig too many times with natural hairdressing products, you will be at risk of producing dander or damaging the wig's fibers.

Silk scarf or silk pillowcase

Remember to add a silk scarf or silk pillowcase to your luggage. By doing so, it can help you protect and keep your hair moisturized while sleeping on an airplane or sleeping at night. In addition, you can wear it on windy days or when doing any sports activities, which is very useful.


As a great tool for packing your wig while traveling, the hairnet can help your wig maintain its shape when worn in a suitcase or on a long flight.

Note: The hairnet is easy to tear or break, so it is best to bring a few more.

Curling iron/straightening machine

These heating tools will help you easily style your wig before going out with the wig for a wonderful dinner party, so that you can stand out from the crowd.

Some tips to pay attention to when traveling with a wig
1. Hairdressing products can be brought on the plane. But there are some rules you need to know.

For example, liquids (including gels, creams, and aerosols) can be placed in carry-on luggage, but only if they comply with TSA’s 3-1-1 liquid rule. Whether you plan to buy a travel size or save a few coins, and then put the items you already have in a reusable travel size container, each container must have a capacity of 3.4 ounces or fewer, stored in a 1 quart size allowed per person in the bag and 1 bag with a zipper.

In addition to the above rules, you must put the liquid bag in the trash can for inspection. Therefore, for your convenience, please pack them in an easily accessible place.

2. Here are some useful tips, please keep in mind before you arrive at the airport.

Hair accessories such as hairpins, metal clips, ties, scarves, and even bows can cause alarms. Of course, it may also include clip-on hair extensions, wigs, top hats, and certain hairstyles, such as braids or up dos.

To avoid any potential delays, it is best to keep it simple when passing security. You can design your hairstyle to your liking anytime after passing the screening and before boarding.

Q: Do I need to buy a wig suitcase?

Answer: No. If you want to get a super fashionable option to carry a wig, you can invest in a wig suitcase. Although the wig suitcase is designed to protect your wig from being crushed or damaged during the journey and can hold all your wig care products, there is no need to do so. After all, the same applies to Ziploc bags in your wallet or carry-on luggage.

Q: Can I wear a wig at the airport security check?
Answer: Of course there is no problem. The TSA security check does not require you to remove the wig, and the airport security check does not ask you whether you are wearing a wig or receiving it. That's because their scanner can see through the wig.

However, if your head area accidentally triggers an alarm during the screening process, they will ask if there is anything in or on your hair. Or, you will be patted by a police officer of the same sex as you.

This kind of pat won't hurt you, but it's enough to make them think that the thing on your head is nothing more than a clip or comb. Before starting the slapping, the officer will guide you through the process, which includes a physical inspection of your hair with your hands to ensure that prohibited items are not hidden.

Therefore, you should avoid wearing too many metal wigs or hairpins, they may trigger the sensor or cause suspicion.

If you are asked to take off your wig and feel uncomfortable in front of all security personnel, please request a private room. TSA will approve your request and prepare a private room where you can take off your wig without stress or accompanied by a companion.

Be sure to inform the TSA officer of any sensitivities or concerns you may have before the inspection.

Don't hesitate to ask the officials to use a new pair of gloves.
Q: Can I wear a wig by plane?
Answer: Yes, you can. If you have a long-haul flight ahead, you may not want to sit or sleep with a wig for long periods of time. You can take the wig box or wig box into the bathroom and quickly change it there.
