Traveling With Your Hair Tools

Feb 19, 2008
Healthy, beautiful, and lustrous hair is every woman's dream! However, you must take adequate care if you want to maintain healthy and flamboyant hair. Other than monitoring your dietary requirements, the use of harmless hair-care products and accessories greatly influences the beauty and strength of your hair.

The hair-care becomes more challenging when you travel to other places that have dissimilar weather and environmental conditions. The change of weather and place may also affect the beauty and strength of your hair. In this situation, it becomes imperative for you to carry all hair-care products and tools that make this job easier for you. However, air travelers need to know what types of hair tools you can carry on an aircraft to avoid unnecessary hassles.

After TSA adjusted the ban on gels, liquids, and aerosols, air travelers can now carry these items in their carry-on bag while going through security checkpoints. This means, now air travelers are allowed to carry all types of liquids and gels in three-ounce or smaller quantity. Though carrying these items in larger quantity is prohibited. The current rules reflect the stringent security measures that the airlines need to follow to ensure the safety of their passengers.

Therefore, travelers can carry only essential toiletries, liquids, and gels for short trips. In case you need them in larger amounts, such as a toothpaste or a shampoo, you must place them in your baggage and check them with your airline.

Are you wondering whether to carry your hair tools on an aircraft? The good news is that you can now carry some essential hair tools such as hair brush, shampoo, conditioner, and detangler.

After 9/11 the restrictions, you cannot carry butane lighter in your carry-on bag. For that reason, you can also not carry a butane hair curler in your carry-on bag. But, it is possible to carry it in your luggage. Security people may also check the baggage for these products and may even remove them before you actually come to know. Similarly, you can carry a hair straightener and hair dryer on an airplane but not in your hand luggage. Many people accept to have carried them in their suitcases only. But, in case you want to put them in your hand luggage, you must inquire the airlines staff about it.

Though you may believe that hair irons are not dangerous, and thus they may ask to pack them in your suitcase and not in your carry-on bags.

You can carry hair styling gels and sprays of all kinds including aerosol in your hang-luggage as well as in your suitcase. However, no airline allows you to carry tools greater than seven inches in length. If you still have doubts about certain hair tools that you may want to carry with you while traveling in an aircraft, you must check with your airline on travel agent to see if these items are permitted in checked luggage on the airline you are traveling in. But, you can also check and find for yourself if your checked in luggage contains any sharp edged tool or object, which may threaten the security of other passengers and security staff.

Remember, different countries may implement different security procedures. Therefore, the travelers must check with the transportation security authorities to know more about what type of hair tools you can carry.
