Can I Take My Hair Straightener In Carry-On Bag

Hair Straightener
If you frequently style your hair with a flat iron – it could be the item you pack for your next flight 


I got a question about this matter a few days ago.

It’s good to know if you have a trip and want to style your hair for your holiday destination.

When you are several miles up I’m sure you won’t need any straightening iron until you reach your destination


According to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) hair straighteners (flat irons) that are powered by a plug are allowed in both carries on bags and checked bags.

Battery operated straighteners should be in carrying on bags, they are not allowed in checked bags.

Cordless hair straightener with a butane cartridge is only allowed in carry-on bags.

It should be stored in a case that prevents you from accidentally switching it on. And you can’t bring a spare cartridge.

Nope! No more spare thermal cell
