Tessica Brown learned that lesson the hard way this month after applying a spray can of Gorilla Glue to her hair and getting stuck – literally – with a single hairstyle

Brown described the initial superglue disaster in a super-viral TikTok video, then documented her efforts to wash out the glue for a week before a surgeon finally did it for her on Wednesday

The sticky saga dates back to early February when Brown first posted a TikTok video detailing her hairy situation

In the video, the 40-year-old from Louisiana explains that she ran out of Got2b Glued hairspray in the middle of her hair.Brown says she tried improvising by using a can of gorilla spray glue to finish the job

“Bad, bad, bad idea,” she says in the video as she shows off the matted, helmet-tight hair on her head. The glue also hardened her long ponytail

“My hair doesn’t move,” she says, “I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it doesn’t move”

A second video shows Brown lathering a handful of shampoo, rubbing it on her head, and then wiping it off after it doesn’t affect her laminated scalp

“Nothing happens,” she says, “This is the life I suppose I have to live”

More than 28 million people saw the first video about their mistake, and millions more have followed to watch their updates and offer advice on removing the glue

Among those who supported her was Chance The Rapper, who applauded others for being likable on Twitter

“The second time I saw the video it was hard to laugh because I could tell she really didn’t know she had one of the strongest adhesives in the world put into her hair,” he tweeted >
Brown says she tried using coconut oil, tea tree oil, and various other methods to get rid of the glue, but none of them worked.She was also examined by a local doctor who appeared to be unable to help

Gorilla Glue called it an “unfortunate” and “unique” situation in a statement on Sunday and wished her “the best” when she visited the doctor

The company also said that Brown violated label directions while using the adhesive

“This product is not intended for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent,” the company said in its statement. “Our spray adhesive is on the warning label” Do not swallow Do not go in the eyes Skin or clothes … “

“It is used for craft, home, car or office projects to mount things onto surfaces like paper, cardboard, wood, laminate and fabric”


Brown’s trip to her local doctor didn’t seem to solve the glue problem.She later chopped off her ponytail and announced on Instagram that she was catching a flight to Los Angeles to get help with her scalp

Dr Michael Obeng removed the glue during a four-hour operation in L.EIN on Wednesday reported TMZ reportedly that the plastic surgeon performed the surgery for free and used a combination of medical grade glue remover, aloe vera, olive oil and acetone to dissolve the glue

The video captured by the outlet shows Brown waking up from her anesthesia, running a hand through her loose hair, and bursting into tears

Brown will have to wait some time before tucking her hair in a ponytail or using a weave, but it looks like she’s keeping her head – and she will be able to style it in a lot of different ways in the future. p>
