A Quick Fix to a Sticky Situation
Gum can be a wonderful treat, but if you’ve ever had an accident with it and gotten it stuck in your hair, you know it has a dark side. Gum in the hair is scary, especially if you have long hair. Sometimes, the only apparent solution is cutting it out. But, unfortunately, this could also mean a very drastic haircut for the person.
Here is the good news: You may be able to salvage your hairstyle with a little bit of peanut butter. Slap on a large handful all over the area with the gum. Work the peanut butter into the site as best as you can; soon, the oil from the peanut butter will help loosen up the stickiness of the gum. Then you’ll be able to work the gum out of the hair, saving your hairstyle.
