Removing Flarp Putty from Hair?

My granddaughter put Flarp Putty in her hair. How can we remove it safely without pulling her hair out? It's all the way to the scalp.

I know that you can remove gum from hair with peanut butter so you might try that. I don't know if it will work or not, but it's worth a try.

We just got back from a b-day party and my daughter had the flarp stuck in her hair. We initially tried olive oil, then powder to try and dry it, but it was still not coming out.

Ii poured organic apple cider on it, and it completely dissolved it! Hope this helps.

I do not usually post but I feel this might be helpful for others,

my 6yr old got some putty stuck in her hair as well. it took some steps to get it out..
had to first separate it from the rest of her hair.. I tried apple cider vinegar in a Ziploc bag zip-tied around the hair.. had her lay in bed and let it soak while she played her video games for an hour or so.. then combed it out, carefully pulling with my fingers and the comb... then brushed it all out... fully washed it.. brushed it again.. and DONE

the apple cider vinegar softened the putty just enough to easily comb it completely out.

My granddaughter went to sleep with silly putty and woke up with it melted to her eyebrow and the top of her hair. Her hair is super thick and longer that her waistline and was in a braid. We used rubbing alcohol wipes for acne on her eyebrow . Keeping her eyes closed tight to make sure the wipes did not touch her eye. It came out with a little elbow grease. We then poured rubbing alcohol on her hair and started working our way through it. It came out with a little soaking , separating, finger combing and a little patience, we got it out.

Hmmm. I put my son in the bath tub and washed his hair with shampoo. The Flarp came right out. No pain. no whining.
