What's the best way to get gum off my daughter's hair?

Her hair is pretty long and the gum is stuck behind her ear. There's a lot of hair on the gum! Please tell me I she doesn't have to get a haircut!!
Many thanks!!

  • I remember my Mother using the conditioner in haircoloring. Of course that was years ago. I don't know the formula is better today or not. Ask a pharamacy. They usually have the answer for everything. There is something over the counter, I am sure. Please do not cut her hair.

  • I've heard peanut butter or mayo helps, haven't had to try it but it might be worth a shot.

  • I recently got gum out of my dd's hair with peanut butter. Really works great.
