A WOMAN who used Gorilla Glue to style her hair has received hospital treatment, after her hair was stuck in the same style for a month.
TikTok sensation Tessica Brown admitted herself to emergency at St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette, Louisiana, after her unfortunate incident went viral.
In her original post, Tessica told her followers her hair had been stuck parted to the side in a long braid for over a month, after she used Gorilla Glue to replace her hairspray
Speaking on the video, she said: “My hair has been like this for about a month now.
“It’s not by choice – when I do my hair I like to finish it off with a little got2b glued spray (a Schwarzkopf hair setting spray) you know just to keep it in place.”
“Well I didn’t have any more got2b glued spray so I used this.”
Tessica held up a can of Gorilla Glue Heavy Duty spray adhesive.
“Bad, bad, bad idea!” she continued, “My hair, it don’t move, you hear what I’m telling you – it don’t move.
“I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it don’t move.”
At one point in the clip, she pats her head to show viewers what the glue product has left her with – essentially a helmet made of hair and adhesive.
In a follow up video, Tessica told her followers she couldn’t wash out the Gorilla Glue that was now fused to her hair, or even shave her head.
She also said that the glue made her hair grow tighter on her head, which caused painful headaches.
After the video was viewed more than 15 million million times, Tessica on Saturday took herself to hospital for expert advice.
In a pair of Instagram posts, she documented her trip to the hospital to see how she couldn safely remove the Gorilla Glue from her hair.
After she left, Tessica returned home to use the items she received from the hospital.
Posting a new video YouTube, she is seen apply a product to her hair, but she doesn't describe exactly what the treatment is.
The woman in the video is seen wiping a product through Tessica's parted hair, explaining she was adding water to help is stop “burning as much.”
Tessica is seen visibly in pain, shaking, covering her face with a towel and crying while she rocks back and forth in her chair.
The video ends without showing whether Tessica was successful in finally removing the Gorilla Glue from her locks.
Shortly after her original video went viral, the Gorilla Glue company spoke to TMZ about a possible way she can remove the product without having to go to the hospital.
A spokesperson said: "The less aggressive solvent for her hair/scalp would be rubbing alcohol to try and saturate her hair and then gently comb it out and shampoo."
The company went on to say that, as Tessica's hair has been stuck for some time now, it's most "likely fractured at the root", adding that Gorilla Glue staff "certainly hope for the best".
