lol omg this happened to me like alot! well what i do is try to find where the gum is and try to pull it out...well dont pull hard or it will get harder to get out
but if it still wont come out, then u might have to cut your way around it..dont worry..when you have to cut, it is barley noticable!! good luck (in a good way!) =]

Peanut butter works the best. Just massage it into the gum and surrounding hair. It makes the gum really gooey and easy to pull out. You could also use baby oil or vegetable oil or basically any type of oil. The trick is being able to get that out of your hair.

It is a three part answer.

Use ice cubes to freeze gum. That helps to stop the gooey process of making it worse.

Clip the frozen gum out in little indescreet snips as though layering hair.

If all else fails and you'd prefer to try this, spray WD40 on the gum and use a rag to strip saturated gum out.

But cutting some hair is inevitable.

lip gloss works wonders, use it like you'd use peanut butter, the upside is that it doesn't smell bad... it'll just make you a little glittery ^.^

Use ice. Make it so that your gum is really cold so that it's really hard. It's easier to take out. <3

use peanut butter, i know that may sound really gross but it does work, if i were u i would use creamy and not chunky, chunky isnt that comfortable, if that doesnt work you may have to cut your hair, but massage the peanut butter into your hair then rinse it out in the shower and the gum should come right out

hope i helped

You can try
*peanut butter [really stinks though]

Rub peanut butter into hair and around gum and slowly work gum out of hair. Oil counters gum's stickiness. Shampoo thoroughly afterward. Mayonnaise and butter also work, but not as well as peanut butter.

also try
*Washing-up liquid

if all else fails, i cut it out

hope I helped
