Gum in her hair tonight

My daughter has always done very well with chewing gum.  She has never ever gotten gum in her hair before but tonight her hair was down (not in a pony) and she was chewing her gum but then she put some of her hair in her mouth with the gum!  It was a mess as you can see in the photos.

The icky mess...

The method of choice!

The outcome:

There are several ways to get gum out of your hair.  Tonight I tried the Vegtable Oil with a comb.  IT WORKED GREAT!  

Have you had to get gum out of hair?  What method worked for you?

Here are some other methods to try:
Peanut Butter
Hair Mousse
Mouth wash
Hand Lotion

There is a long list of ways to do try.  I wanted to do something that did not require me to throw her back into the bathtub to wash her hair.  I only used a little bit of oil so I did not need to get her hair cleaned right away since we were minutes from heading out the door for church.  


Oh so sad! I have been there. My poor daughter has such thin hair to begin with--uhg.

I have tried several of them. Raised three girls that loved gum. There is a traveling story about gum and we call it the national lampoon vacation story and it has a really gummy story in it. To funny too.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
