HELP!

Yesterday, as I was standing at the kitchen sink, my husband came up behind me and gave me a big hug. Sweet right? Yeah, except he had pitch on his shirt and now a big wad of it is in the back of my hair. (Yesterday I thought I got it in my hair from wearing his coat to take the dogs out but later he looked down at his shirt and said "Oh I have pitch all over my shirt." Grrrrr.

Any ideas? Some websites say gasoline (no thanks), some say peanut butter, some say rubbing alcohol.

I really don't want to rub gasoline in my hair.

Thanks in advance,
Lodi

well peanut butter and ice cubes are good to get gum out of hair but I don't know about tar! Yikes!

If you have a Sally's Beauty Supply in your area, they often carry some sort of remover that works on chewing gum.

I've actually gotten bees caught in mine. It gave me a huge embarrassing phobia.

Maybe its time to change that big beehive hairdo you have, Erin.

I like to think that it was how sweet I smelled

My beautician friend says to soak it in vegetable oil for 24 hours.

olive oil will work. and you'll smell like an italian salad for a while.

wd-40 also works.

I am not sure the gum cures like olive oil, peanut butter and such will work. Gasoline will.

The cure we used for stuff like that on rugs is freeze it with a spray can of something like freon or CO2. Once frozen, it can be broken and chipped out of the pile.

Yuk!!! You can try mayo. It won't leave you hair as greasy as oils and should have the same effect!!! Good luck!!!!!!

Wear a hat until you can get it out

I was going to suggest a pony tail, but I think both a hat and the hair in your pony tail will stick to it.

Witch hazel?

Use Oops and a bar of Fels-Naptha Soap. The Oops breaks down the sticky and the Fels-Naptha gets the black residue. Then just shampoo.

...Possibly eucalyptus oil? It works for chewing gum, maybe for pitch too??
Hope so!

Good news! The pitch is out. Scott has this stuff he uses to clean up his hands when working on greasy messy stuff called GOOP. He worked it through my hair, washed it out, and the pitch is gone. Its only fair that he had to do it since he was the one who put it in there.

I did find it interesting that one website said to use peanut butter, but not the crunchy kind.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. GOOP is in most ER's for removing tar from all those places people get it while they're bouncing around on the pavement. Glad you found some!

You forgot to mention the note on the bottom of the details about it causing possible hair loss.

So glad you did not have to resort to Ron Popeil!

I still wonder if the vego-matic would have changed my life ...
