We can all agree that traveling is fun, except when it comes to packing and dealing with airport security. Aside from the long waiting lines to check in and go through security, the airline industry has imposed rules in regard to size restrictions on our liquid products and the number of bags we are allowed to carry on the plane with us that makes packing more annoying.
If you’re going on a weekend getaway, a short business trip, or have mastered being a light packer, then we’re guessing you don’t want to waste time waiting around to pick up your bag from baggage claim. Luckily, with most airlines, you are able to bring a carry-on bag in addition to a personal item on board, leaving you with a good amount of space to pack for your trip.
Liquids & TSA’s 3-1-1 Regulation
The only thing you have to be careful with is your toiletries; there are very specific size requirements that you can find online at tsa.gov. It’s difficult to find travel sized items of all of your favorite products, but many companies have come out with convenient travel size bottles that you can bring with you on your trip and reuse time after time.
They are perfect for frequent travelers and are more friendly on the wallet as well as eco-conscious since you won’t have to keep re-purchasing mini-bottles of products you already have at home.
Bags: Where Less is More
Once you gather all of your bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, etc., then you need to figure out where to contain all of them. Depending on how many items you need to take with you, a typical size cosmetic case may not be sufficient. It can be cumbersome to pack several small cases with you so it probably makes sense to upgrade to a bigger size one that can accommodate all of your necessities.
This travel toiletry case has multiple compartments so it can hold all of your bathroom and hair care necessities in one place.
On-the-Go Hair Care
Hair care can often be forgotten when packing light and the products that come with it are not exactly travel friendly. If you travel often and rely on using a good blow dryer and/or flat iron, a travel set could be a good investment for you. Most hotels are equipped with blow dryers, but sometimes they are not the quality you expect – which could lead to a disastrous morning. If you have the space to spare in your bag, it could be worth getting a quality travel-sized blow dryer, such as Babylisspro Travel Dryer, which you can rely on.
