Removing pitch from mane.

Any tips on how to get pitch out of a mane? My Cody has rubbed his mane on a fir or cedar tree and has gobs of sticky pitch all through it and a big chunk of it is tangled and glued together. Will detangler take it out?

Butter or oil will take it out. Some detanglers might if they are oil based, but I know olive oil, vegetable oil and corn oil all work.

Baby oil/mineral oil. Even peanut butter.

I'm guessing with peanutbutter, get the organic stuff that still has the oil in it, right?

Available at almost any store now it removes anything sticky....then wash with soap and water the residue off and out of anything you use it on.

I used it to get gum our of my hair.. didn't hurt my hair or skin and was super easy using it. Takes the stick-em residue from band-aids off with no problems...heart monitor electrode pads stick-em residue off a guys hairy chest with no "ouch"....
