Default Traveling with mousse...

This may be a weird (and possibly obvious ) question, but I travel a lot so it's something I'd definitely love a definitive answer to...

Is mousse considered a "liquid" and therefore not allowed in a carry-on bag when flying? Just curious because the last few times I've traveled, I've checked my bag so I could take my beloved JoiWhip mousse, but if there's a way for me to carry that on because it's not considered a liquid (I assumed it was, so I checked it to be safe), then I'd much rather do that.

Thanks in advance!

Only if you can find it in a travel size (can't remember if it's 1, 2 or 3 oz.) and it'll fit in a quart-size ziploc/plastic bag. You can check the airline websites and it'll tell you what the restrictions are for carry-ons.

I would say yes, it is a liquid. I'd check it in for sure.

Ugh, so it does fit the 3-1-1 rule then, eh? (3 ounces, 1 quart-sized zip-top bag, 1 bag per customer)

Darn. I wish Joico made a 3 oz version of Joiwhip!

I'll have to find a travel-sized gel that works as well as Joiwhip does. I don't want to have to check stuff in if at all possible--with the amount that I travel, I'm bound to lose my luggage (they say the probability is even greater now that more people check their luggage).

So true! I now have hair stuff in my checked luggage, plus I carry a backup of something else in my carry on just in case my luggage does get lost. This way, at least I have something I know will work for my hair.

JM ~ yes, mousse is considered a liquid. If you can get the travel size, then it's okay to take onboard the aircraft. I work for a big airline, so I figured I could help a bit. The largest size of each liquid item you can take onboard is 3.4 ozs, and you will have to put them all into one one-quart size ziploc baggie.

Hope it helps!

ps ~ of course, if we curlies have a longer trip, it's ALWAYS good to take the big size and tuck it in our checked bags! I say, have one mini-size and one regular size of everything!!
