I found this online:

First we just put him in the shower and tried to wash it out. No luck. Then we put ice on it, no luck again. We tried to comb it out and heard nothing but screams from Jake. My husband claimed he was done and headed upstairs to get the electric razor and give Jake a crew cut. Of course I was not wanting the shaved head and I was really not wanting to pull out the peanut butter, so googled, "How do I get glue out of hair?" and they suggested Baby Oil. I poured it all over his head, let it sit for about 20 minutes and then slowly but surely, it came out!

Also, found this:

If flubber gets into your clothes, carpet or hair you can remove it by using white vinegar. Flubber dissolves in vinegar.

Also this:

Mayonnaise will get flubber out of hair if it should happen to end up there!  Vinegar will get it out of clothing.

Thank you for posting these! Gonna start with the vinegar as it sounds the easiest to get out.

I used the white vinegar on her hair and it worked!! All but a few stray pieces. She's in the shower now then I'll pick the last few pieces out. Thank you sooo much!

I am SO happy it worked! Yay!!

I was so worried that it would be painful to get out. I have long hair too, and I could imagine how it would feel if it needed to be helped out with a comb.
