    hot hair rollers

    Check or Carry-on
    You may transport this item in carry-on baggage or in checked baggage. For items you wish to carry-on, you should check with the airline to ensure that the item will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the airplane.
    Please be sure to wrap cords tightly around electronics items and pack your bag in neat layers (layer of clothes, layer of electronics, layer of clothes, layer of shoes, etc.) to help officers get a clear look at your bag.



    Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns. The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow any items on the plane.

    This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active United Airlines experts.

    Sure you can, but where you going to plug it in? However, you never know when you can be stuck in an airport and need a touch up! Electric equipment is fine, but they draw the line at hazardous substances such as butane.

    Stay beautiful, Rosie!
