In order to prevent a fur coat from shedding, the coat needs to be stored in an area where it does not come into contact with other garments. Friction from rubbing against other pieces of clothing can cause hair loss. It should be kept in a place that protects it from the heat and humidity of summer weather.
It is advisable to avoid getting hairspray, perfume or other chemicals on a fur coat. These items can cause the coat's leather and fur to become dry and brittle, both of which contribute to fur loss. After an individual wears a fur coat in wet conditions, the coat should be professionally dried. Improper drying makes the leather crack.
