Gorilla Glue Are 'Sorry' About Woman Who Glued Her Hair | 22 Words

This week, a woman went viral after she shared her experience of using Gorilla Glue as hairspray (disclaimer: it didn't go well).

Anyway, the company behind the adhesive has today addressed the incident.

Here's the full story...

Now we've all gone through some pretty questionable style makeovers during lockdown...


But one woman might have just won first place for the most bizarre.

The woman in question had to go to the hospital in hopes she could get Gorilla Glue removed from her hair.


Yep, she ran out of hairspray and decided it was the next best thing.

Understandably, people were completely baffled to hear her story.

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."

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."

A GoFundMe campaign launched on Sunday has collected more than $10,000 for Tessica's hair treatment, far exceeding a goal of $1,500.

As soon as her story went viral, Gorilla Glue quickly 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."

And today, they have released an official statement.

In a Twitter post, they wrote that they "are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident," and that they are "glad to see in her recent video that Miss Brown has received medical treatment."

They also reminded their followers that Gorilla Glue is designed exclusively for "craft, home, auto, or office projects," not for hairstyling hacks.

Let this serve as a reminder, folks - Gorilla Glue is not hairspray.
