Keep scrolling to see for yourself...
After a whirlwind of a time trying to rectify her mistakes, she has finally received some good news...
Tessica Brown has finally seen a surgeon who vowed to help her sort out her hair-related problems and the results are extremely positive... Well, as positive as they can be.
You've all probably heard of this story by now, right?
Yep, a woman ran out of hairspray and decided Gorilla Glue was the next best thing.
On top of all this, she filmed the whole thing for TikTok.
People just couldn't believe what she did...
After spending a whole month trying to remove the glue from her hair, Tessica Brown admitted herself to a local hospital in Louisiana.
She later uploaded a video to TikTok showing her followers that she's literally tried everything to remove it.
According to Tessica, she can't wash out the glue or even shave her head, due to the hair being so slick against her skin.
Tessica originally posted a video of how it all happened: "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.
"Well, I didn't have any more Göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea. My hair, it don't move. You hear what I'm telling you? It. Don't. Move."
Gorilla Glue has even responded, telling TMZ:
"The less aggressive solvent for her hair/scalp would be rubbing alcohol to try and saturate her hair and then gently comb it out and shampoo."
The company went on to say her hair is "likely fractured at the root," as it's been stuck for such a long time.
They added that Gorilla Glue staff "certainly hope for the best."
In her initial video, which has been viewed over eighteen million times...
Tessica says: "Hey, y'all. For those of you that know me know that my hair has been like this for about a month now. It's not by choice. No, it's not by choice."
At one point in the clip, she pats her head showing just how hard her hair has set.
Some people advised her to wash her hair with shampoo, resulting in Tessica uploading a video showing why that hasn't helped.
She says: "Look, you wipe it off and nothing happens. Like, this is the life that I'm living at this point."

People across the world have been sending Tessica messages of support and sympathy.
And after she set up a GoFundMe page 2 days ago, they've also been sending her money.
With an original target of $1,500, Tessica's GoFundMe page now has more than $15,000 donations.
$17,506 to be precise, at the time of writing.
She has not yet revealed how she plans to use the money raised, but a good guess could be on doctors bills.
And now, we've received an update on her condition after the procedure.
With a blanket over her face and head, she left the hospital after everything "went well."
"The surgery went well," Obeng said. "Tessica is doing well. She's awake. The hair crew is doing her hair."
