Head to the kitchen and find your jar of Jif (or any other kind of creamy peanut butter). You want a peanut butter with a high oil content and be sure not to use crunchy!

Step 2: Apply generously

After removing as much of the gum as you can with your fingers, apply a generous amount of peanut butter to the area. Rub it in to coat the gum and the hair surrounding it.

Step 3: Use a tooth brush

Get an old tooth brush and work the peanut butter into your hair using long downward strokes. Continue working the peanut butter through the gum and it will slowly dissolve the gum.

Step 4: Get a dry hand towel

With a dry towel, rub out the peanut butter (which will remove the gum too). Then comb through the area with a wide-tooth comb.
