hey guys.

just wanna ask, how much of a shampoo do you guys fill up the bottle? cos of air pressure, you cant fill it to the brim as it will leak out of the bottle up in the sky.

you guys fill it up to 3/4 of the bottle?

No, don't fill it to the brim. What I do is squeeze out some air and close the cap. That way it has room to expand in flight. Tape the cap with masking tape.

Why fly with that kinda stuff when you can just buy some when you get to your destination. I have had them explode on me before so I no longer put that kinda stuff in my bags. Luckily I had them in a ziplock and it did not go everywhere.

Ugh. yeah, Ive one two many Pantene explosions in my pack. I buy as small a bottle as I can and just use that. I always end up leaving full bottles of shampoo after me in hostels because they are just a pain in the ass to carry around.

I buy shampoo bottles with screw caps, and wrap a small plastic bag around them (inside the bag of toiletries) whenever I'm flying, so that if they go pop after all, at least the mess will be contained.
