Neal Farinah, Beyoncé’s personal hairstylist, offered his support to Gorilla Glue Girl after seeing people ridicule her struggles with trying to get the Gorilla Glue adhesive removed from her hair.
On Monday (Feb. 8), Farinah took to Instagram to extend his resources to Tessica Brown. “We all have our own options,” he captioned a photo of Brown in the hospital. “Yes, she made a big mistake, but (are) we going to keep tearing her down? Let’s help her: Tessica Brown @im_d_ollady @gorillaGlue. (Anyone) has a contact DM? When she leaves the hospital — if she needs a wig or taking care of her scalp — I’m here for her.”
On Feb. 4, Brown went viral after sharing that she used a Gorilla Glue adhesive spray to style her hair once she ran out of her Göt2b Glued spray. In the video, which was shared to TikTok, she explained that she tried to wash it out, but “it didn’t move.” Instead, her ponytail kept getting “tighter and tighter.”
The woman then sought medical help. The nurse attempted to treat her hair with nail polish remover and saline water, but the experience was painful. “When she started, it started to burn, so they took the saline water and tried to, you know, cool it off, but it burned so bad to where my heart started beating too fast…,” Brown explained during an interview with Kiss 92.5. “She told me it looked like she could do it, but it’s gonna take at least 20 hours.” Instead of waiting it out in the hospital, the woman requested to continue the treatment at home.
On Feb. 8, the Gorilla Glue Company released a statement saying that their adhesive spray “is not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent.”
“It is used for craft, home auto or office projects to mount things to surfaces such as paper, cardboard, wood, laminate and fabric,” their statement continued. “We are glad to see in her recent video that Miss Brown has received medical treatment from her local medical facility and wish her the best.”
As REVOLT previously reported, Brown will travel to Los Angeles this week to receive free assistance from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng. He is reportedly planning to use a medical-grade glue remover on her hair and said the process will take about two to three days.
