When that failed, she went to the emergency room to seek professional help; she opted to complete her treatment at home after learning it would take 20 hours to remove the glue from her hair.

Brown claims the product is misleading because it says multi-use and only warns against usage on the eyes, skin or clothing but fails to mention hair in the list. Gorilla Glue, however, says their products are considered permanent and are only used for “craft, home auto or office projects to mount things to surfaces such as paper, cardboard, wood, laminate and fabric.”

“We are aware of the situation and we are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair,” the company said in a statement. “This is a unique situation because this product is not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent. Our spray adhesive states in the warning label ‘Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing...’”
