One of the best hacks to get gum out of hair is by using ice. Here’s how to do it:
- Take a few ice cubes and place them in a plastic bag.
- Hold the ice pack over the gum in your hair for about 15-20 minutes. This will harden the gum and make it easier to remove.
- Use a comb or your fingers to gently pull the gum out of the hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.
- Once the gum is removed, wash the hair with shampoo and conditioner to remove any residue.
This hack works because the cold temperature of the ice hardens the gum, making it less sticky and easier to remove. Be patient and avoid pulling or cutting the hair, as this can cause damage and lead to uneven haircuts.
Remember, prevention is key to avoid getting gum stuck in your hair. Be cautious when chewing gum and try to avoid playing with it near your hair.
