Woman Who Used Gorilla Glue As Setting Spray On Hair Finally Gets Hospital Treatment

A woman who used Gorilla Glue instead of hairspray to style her hair has finally received hospital treatment, after posting a video about what had happened over on TikTok.

Tessica Brown, from Louisiana, told followers how she had admitted herself to A&E after revealing she had used Gorilla Glue after running out of her usual hairspray.

In a video shared on TikTok a few days ago, Tessica explained: "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, you know just to keep it in place.

"Well I didn't have any more got2b glued spray so I used this." Tessica then held up a bottle of the Gorilla Glue spray adhesive, adding: "Bad, bad, bad idea!

"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."

In a second video, Tessica demonstrated the true extent of what the glue spray had done to her hair - lathering on shampoo to show her followers how little difference it made.

And other users were seriously concerned about Tessica, with many urging her to seek help. Others wondered whether she had confused Gorilla Glue with Gorilla Snot gel, which is an actual hair product.

Just a day later, the TikTok star explained she had resorted to going to hospital to get the glue removed from her head.

She later posted a video on YouTube explaining she had received some products from medics to use at home.

Poor Tessica looks to be in agonising pain, as a woman can be seen using a product on her hair and adding water to stop it "burning as much".

Tessica didn't confirm whether the treatment had removed the glue, but we've got everything crossed that she makes a full recovery soon.

Meanwhile, a Gorilla Glue spokesperson told TMZ that there could have been a way for Tessica to remove the glue herself.

"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," they said.

However, they also added that as it has been stuck on for so long, it's "likely fractured at the root but we certainly hope for the best".

Tessica has also set up a GoFundMe page to help with her healing and recovery. You can donate here.
