So your holidays booked, swimwear shopping has begun, your essential list grows by the day, as obviously everything becomes essential when you embark on your long awaited trip, but how much is too much to take? Especially where hair care is involved…
The airport can become a stressful time for some people, questions arise in your head as you gaze around looking for your check in point. ‘Have i packed enough shampoo?’ ‘Should i have packed some hair UV protector?’ ‘Where did i put my sunhat?’
So What Are The Plane Sizes?
For hand luggage bottles must hold no more than 100ml.
Bottles must be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm when fitting in your hand luggage.
Some of the products i will mention are slightly larger than the above plane sizes, never fear… use clear plastic bottles which use the same guidelines, just label them so you don’t forget which is which. Clear Plastic Travel Bottles
Or alternatively place larger items in main luggage bag, be sure to use freezer bags for added protection – You don’t want your clothes to steal all of your special sun protection products do you?…
