The comments on that thread are funny. It sounds like there is a toddler coiffure movement leaning toward 50s greaser styles.

Maybe the Vaseline and VapoRub would be left untouched if we all kept tins of pomade (as honeypots) in front of our cabinets. Our fully styled tots might emerge from the bathroom snapping their fingers and singing "When You're a Jet" or "You Ain't Nothing but a Hound Dog."

ROTFL, Adrienne!! My little guy will climb the bookcases to get at it, he loves that stuff. I think it's the feel of it squishing in his fingers. ICK!!

As I recall from personal experience, peanut butter gets gum out of hair. But I bet Vasoline would be equally successful.

So the Vasoline removes the gum, the cornstarch removes the Vasoline and then what removes the cornstarch?

That would have made my mother's life a bit easier. She had to wash my hair three times, in Tide.

it proved more packaging than substance and the featured new-release product was not something I would ever use.

you need to know about split ends and what you can do to keep your ends sane.
