A month after using Gorilla Glue to replace her hairspray, Tessica Brown is seeking medical treatment at the hospital.
On Saturday (Feb. 6), the TikToker admitted herself to the emergency room at St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette, Louisiana. In a pair of Instagram posts, Brown documents her trip to the hospital to see how she can safely remove the Gorilla Glue from her hair. After she left, Brown returned home to use the items she received from the hospital. She then took to TikTok to give her fans a brief look at how her recovery process is going.
In the video, we can see Brown apply the product to her head, but she doesn’t describe exactly what the treatment is. Prior to her hospital visit, Brown told her followers in a video that she can’t wash the Gorilla Glue out or even shave her head. Brown also said that the glue made her hair grow tighter on her head, which caused headaches.
Brown managed to garner the world’s attention on Thursday (Feb. 4) when she uploaded a video on TikTok, in which she admits the sticky details of her situation. She started off the video by telling her followers that she’s had her locks parted to the side in a long braid for over a month, and it wasn’t by choice.
“When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little Göt2b Glued Spray, you know, just to keep it in place,” Brown says in the video. “Well, I didn’t have any more Göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea.”
Shortly after her video went viral, the Gorilla Glue company spoke to TMZ about a possible way she can remove the product without going to the hospital. A spokesperson for Gorilla Glue said that her best bet is to use rubbing alcohol and comb it out with shampoo. However, they also believe that the product could’ve damaged her roots. Nonetheless, they wish her the best.
