Household Tips: Removing Gum From Hair

September 7, 2011 | Post Comment   

Recently I read on my FB that a boy had gum on his hair and the mother’s maid cut off the portion of the hair leaving an empty patch. This is a common problem, somehow the gum likes to get into children’s hair. I remembered when I was young, I had the same experience. I suspect that my brother put it there.

Actually I read somewhere that you can remove the gum without chopping the hair. You can use ice to harden the gum and apply some virgin oil on to the hair with gum. The gum will somehow slip out of the hair. Others recommend peanut butter but I think that is way too messy.

Here is a video of how a mum remove gum from her child’s hair using olive oil.
