It’s almost the day of your flight and all that’s left to do is pack your hand luggage. It can be easy to forget the rules and regulations of hand luggage, which can result in your favourite grooming products being confiscated at the airport can’t it? That’s why our latest addition to the man bag edit is giving you a little refresher in what’s allowed and what may be taken away by the security chaps checking out your grooming goods at the gates.
There’s nothing worse than taking a fresh tub of your go-to hair styling product to only have it taken away at security, ruining your hair for the entire holiday. So you know exactly what you can and cannot take in your hand luggage, simply remember that no liquids which exceed 100ml, including any of the below toiletries are allowed in your hand luggage.
Liquids in containers larger than 100ml generally can’t go through security either, even if the container is only part full. The only exception for this is if they are for essential medical purposes, special dietary requirements or contain baby food or baby milk.
Once you’ve decided which products to take, you must place them all inside a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag. Remember that the bag must measure approximately 20cm x 20cm and hold no more than 1 litre of liquids. Make sure that they fit comfortably inside the bag so you can seal it securely. You’re only allowed one bag per person, so make sure you choose your grooming products wisely! Try and save room by choosing multi-use products and decanting them in to smaller bottles for the journey.
If you purchase liquids at the airport or on the plane,such as stocking up on your favourite fragrances, you can take them through security. However, you can only take them if they are sealed inside a security bag when you buy them and the receipt for the items is sealed and visible in the security bag too. Remember that you must not open the security bag until you reach your final destination, so keep those urges to sniff your new scent at bay until your reach your destination, chaps!
Airport staff are entitled to open your items to screen the liquid at the security point should they feel it is necessary, so don’t be too insulted if they look like they’re having a good nose through. Remember, the security staff are there for you safety and even though they may be envious of your grooming swag, they are simply doing their job.
Just incase you do need to groom on the go, you can also take the following in your hand luggage:
So there really is no excuse to not look your best at every point during your travels. Whether you’re jetting off on your summer holidays, or it’s a quick business trip for a few days, be sure to stick to the hand luggage packing guides to make sure your journey goes as smoothly as possible.
