Default Has anyone successfully removed gum from their hair?

My co-worker had to cut her 4 year old daughters hair off almost to the scalp because she had bubble gum caught in it. Anyone know if it could have been removed somehow?

A quick google search got this,
How to Get Gum out of Your Hair - wikiHow

The cooking oil and ice method seem like it would possibly work after a little trying.

Cover it in an ice pack, then pull it apart. Agree, she should be pimp backhanded for not checking google first. How long til that kid realizes mummy's a retard...
