This is a great question, and one that we get a lot here at the blog. The answer, unfortunately, is a bit complicated.
Pomade is a hair styling product that is typically made from a mixture of oils, waxes, and water. It is used to give the hair a shiny, slick appearance.
The reason that pomade is considered a liquid when flying is because it is a mixture of both liquids and solids. The oils and waxes in the pomade can solidify at lower temperatures, which means that they can be classified as a solid. However, when the pomade is exposed to higher temperatures, such as those found in airplanes, the pomade will melt and become a liquid.
This can be a bit confusing, but the bottom line is that pomade is considered a liquid when flying because it can melt and become a liquid at high temperatures. So, if you’re planning on taking a flight with your pomade, be sure to pack it in your carry-on bag so that it doesn’t melt and cause a mess in your suitcase.
