No need to run to the drug store to buy something expensive when you get gum stuck in your hair. The only place you have to go is the pantry where momma keeps the peanut butter.
How To Get Gum out of Hair
First off lets talk supplies, all you need is a container of smooth peanut butter, a comb, and a napkin or some paper towels. If you are allergic to peanut butter, you can substitute any kind of cooking oil you may have.
First step is to get as much peanut butter or cooking oil, smear it in on and around the affected area, work it in as best you can. Next step is to gently separate the strands of hair with the comb, its best to start off with a wide tooth comb and slowly work your way to a fine tooth comb.
As you begin to pull the gum out along with the peanut butter, have your napkin or paper towels ready as getting gum out of clothes is just as hard as getting it out of your hair. Don’t be afraid to add more peanut butter as you go, the slicker the better.
Once all the gum is out and all your left with is peanut butter, your done! Just wash your hair out with regular water and shampoo. That’s really all you need to do to get gum out of hair. I’ve also heard that mayonnaise works well on getting gum out of hair.
