Thank fuck: the Gorilla Glue girl has finally been able to get the glue out of her hair, but had to undergo surgery to do it.
Last week, Tessica Brown went viral after posting a TikTok where she confessed that she had gotten herself into a very situation. A very sticky situation, indeed.
Tessica ran out of Got2B Glued spray to keep her hair in place and decided to use Gorilla Glue spray instead. The adhesive is super tough, so tough that it’s used on surfaces like metal, wood and plastic.
Of course, using an industrial grade glue on your head may cause unwanted results like a PERMANENT ponytail that cannot be washed out. Gorilla Glue gal washed her hair 15 times, and it still wouldn’t come out. Oh lord.
Stiff where????? Ma hair ????????
Since going viral, Tessica has been keeping everyone updated with her Gorilla Glue journey, and it’s WILD.
In one video, GGG (Gorilla Glue Girl) slathers her hair with Pantene Pro V.
“Look, if you wipe it off and nothing happens. This is the life I’m living at this point. This is the life that I guess I’mma have to live,” Tessica said in the video.
It don’t move I hate it here
The situation became so dire that poor GGG had to go to St Bernard Parish Hospital in Louisiana. Unfortunately, the treatment they gave her there didn’t work either.
But thankfully, the glue is finally out of Tessica’s hair. It wasn’t an easy process. She had to go to undergo a pretty invasive procedure, where she was put under a light anaesthetic. The doctor who performed the procedure was Dr. Michael Obeng who had to figure out the science needed to break down the product, and in his words: “reinvent the wheel.”
“I looked up the compound, the main active ingredient in Gorilla Glue, polyurethane, and we figured out the science and how to break it down,” he said.
A rep from Gorilla Glue told TMZ they were “glad” to hear she had received the treatment.
Moral of the story: never use Gorilla Glue on your hair.
