Traveling can be stressful enough without having to worry about the rules and regulations of what you can and cannot bring in your luggage. One question many travelers have is can you bring hair products in checked luggage or your carry-on.
The short answer is yes, you can bring hair products, but there are some guidelines you should follow. In this blog post, I will answer whether you can bring hair products in checked or carry-on luggage and give tips on packing them properly to make your travels smoother.
Can you bring hair products in checked luggage?
Yes, you can bring hair products in your checked luggage without any restrictions. This means you don’t have to worry about the size and quantity of your shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, and other hair products as long as they’re not flammable or explosive.
However, if you’re traveling internationally, be aware that other countries may have different rules and regulations regarding the types of hair products you can bring.
Can you bring hair products in carry-on luggage?
Yes, you can bring hair products in your carry-on luggage, but there are some guidelines you should follow. The TSA has established the 3-1-1 rule for carry-on bag liquids, aerosols, and gels.
This means that all liquids, aerosols, and gels must be in containers that are 3.4 ounces or less per item and placed in a clear quart-sized bag. Each passenger is only allowed one clear bag per person.
Can I bring hairspray on a plane?
Yes, you can bring hairspray on a plane, provided it meets the restrictions outlined by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). According to the TSA guidelines, hairspray in a container of 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less is permitted in carry-on luggage.
If you have a larger container, you can pack it in your checked luggage.
It’s also important to note that most hairspray is considered a flammable item, so it should be packed in a well-sealed plastic bag to prevent any leakage or damage to other items in your luggage.
More importantly, hairspray should be covered with a cap to prevent accidental release. See here for more safety information when flying with hair products.
