I was very nervous going through security wearing my wig (garment, as my wigmaker calls it). I saw horror stories on the news about TSA workers making cancer patients take off their wigs when they were going through security. I was glad that I didn’t have any problems going trough security and TSA did not ask me any questions. When traveling with a wig, I recommend this wig stand to maintain the shape of your wig. The wig stand and is easy to travel with because it folds. At home I used this styrofoam wig head for my wig and put it on a wig stand clamp I also used this headbandto help my wig fit better even though it was custom made to fit my head. I also used regular shampoo and conditioner for real hair when caring for my wig since it was made with human hair. I always felt that the salon did a better job at styling my wig though.
