    Ice works pretty good. I have had gum in my hair a few times and it worked.

    Ice or Peanut butter worked for me a lot, Also, mixture of Vinagar and salt will dissolve, or terpintine you use for oil paintings, or just CUT it out.

    read my hub about a guy who catches foot clap! It's "not" in there, but I figured that this question was geared towards advertising yourself!
    I'm gonna have to say that the best way to get it out is using a pair of scissors.

    From my experiences either ice, peanut butter, or baby oil.

    The baby oil works the best I think.

    Hair cut smile

    Or pb or mineral oil or ice, as previously stated by those who came before me.

    If it was bad, I didn't put us thorugh the stress of trying to get it out.

    New Do time.

    In the end, it was the losing of her long tresses to save the day hair cuts that taught her the lesson: no sneakin' into bed with bubblegum in your mouth young lady!!

    Ice, freeze the gum and it will crack up and be easily removed without pain.

    I found that plain flour worked wonders on my daughters very long hair, rub the flour into the gum until it's dry and crumbles, brush it out and then wash hair as normal, no tears....

    Mayonnaise or peanut butter.  The oils will loosen the gum

    The one time I had gum in my hair, I used peanut butter to get it out, and it worked!  Ice sounds like a good idea, too.  Maybe it would be less painful.  smile

    Peanut butter, well covered in these answers already, has always been one of my go-tos. The other is glycerin, which also works well.
