To get bubble gum out of hair, just dab a little baby oil on your finger tips (depending on the size of the wad) and rub on the gum. It should just slide right off the hair with minimal mess!

Creamy Peanut Butter works just as well (if not better?)
What a marvellous idea!. Marg from England
If you are in a pinch and have no baby oil or peanut butter you can also use WD 40, make sure you hold the can right up to the hair and gum mess and spray directly on the mess, rub it in a little making sure as to not get other loose hair in the gum. Pull off what you can and repeat if needed. Ice will also help as a "pre-treatment" prior to the WD 40, hold it on the gum with an old rag as you will throw it in the trash when finished.
It does not smell to good but it does work. Make sure you shampoo afterwards until the smell of the WD is gone.
