(CNN) -- With Halloween just around the corner a lot of kids will be feasting on candy in less than two weeks.
With all that sticky candy comes a greater risk of kids getting it stuck in their hair. But you don't have to cut it out. There are a few different options.
Here are a few tips from a manager at a Great Clips:
- Use some sort of oil, or an oil-based hair product to loosen the candy
- For gum, put peanut butter in the child's hair and massage it in to break up the gum
- Whatever the method, remove the candy with a comb. If the candy still seems stuck, add more oil/peanut butter or continue to massage the area, then try to comb it again.
This is a very common problem around Halloween, and a lot of parents think the best option is to cut it out. You can also go to any salon to get the sweets out.
