Freeze Gum That's Stuck In Your Hair For Easier Removal

When you get gum stuck in your hair, one of the most common pieces of advice is to use something oily like peanut butter to remove it. An alternative tactic that could help is to freeze it.

As tips blog Simply Good Tips suggests, using a cold pack, bag of frozen vegetables or even just ice to freeze the gum in your hair can make it easy to break it off into pieces, or even slide it straight off your hair. The results may depend on just how much your hair got mixed in with the gooey horror, but even if you have to move on to some other kind of lubricant later, freezing as a first step will make the rest smoother.
