Tessica Brown, now famously known as Gorilla Glue Girl, has had a pretty eventful 2021. After going viral a week ago with her horrifying hair confession, it seems some relief may finally be on the way.
Brown posted a video to TikTok showing off her impenetrable due. “Stiff where?” she said in the video. “Ma hair 🤬🤬”. The clip, which garnered over 4 million views, features Brown talking to camera, recounting the horrible choice she made to use Gorilla Glue on her hair, instead of her normal hair gel. “My hair has been like this for about a month now. Its not by choice. I washed my hair 15 time and it won’t move.”

Gorilla Glue is usually used for materials such as metal, stone and wood – and according to the company’s website, “forms a clear, permanent bond that is moisture resistant.”
“Bad bad bad idea,” Brown said. “Don’t ever, ever use this, unless you want your hair to be like that, FOREVER.”
In the week since, she’s keep people up to date on her attempts to remedy herself from the glue-do.
On Thursday she uploaded a video to her instagram of her slathering Pantene Pro V on her head and demonstrating how stubborn the glue is. “Look, 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,” she says, before bursting into tears.
She’s even gone to the emergency room, where doctors recommended acetone and running alcohol.
Some relief finally came today, in the form of Goo Off. The adhesive remover was not completely successful, but was helpful in allowing her to chop off her ponytail.
Gorrilla Glue released a statement after some twitter users advised Brown to seek legal action. “We are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair. 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.”

According to TMZ, Brown will be flying to Los Angeles to seek the help of Dr. Michael Obeng, who will attempt to remove the product during a process of over two to three days where he will use medical grade glue remover. Obeng will not charge Brown for the procedure, which can cost up to $12,500.
Supporters of Brown have helped her raise more than $13,000 in a GoFundMe her and family members initiated.
