The TikToker who used Gorilla Glue as hairspray left the world in shock last week, and you’d think that her bizarre story would have deterred others from doing the same, but sadly, that isn’t the case…
Now we’re all aware of Tessica Brown’s Gorilla Glue fiasco…
But it seems her story hasn’t prevented another TikToker from doing the exact same thing.
And people aren’t as sympathetic this time around…
Now we all know Tessica Brown’s dramatic story, after spending a whole month trying to remove the glue from her hair, she admitted herself to a local hospital in Louisiana.
She later uploaded a video to TikTok showing her followers that she’d literally tried everything to remove it.
According to Tessica, she couldn’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 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 said: “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 didn’t help.
She said: “Look, you wipe it off and nothing happens. Like, this is the life that I’m living at this point.”
But it seems her situation did little to prevent Avani Reyes from gluing her own hair.
In a video that went viral over the weekend, the TikToker could be seen trying to comb through her hair with little success.
She later posted a video showing herself at the hospital where she went to receive help. She said the staff wasn’t sure how to help, suggesting tea tree oil, and coconut oil.
“I’m on my way to the hospital right now, my scalp is burning. I need to go to the hospital so they can remove this Gorilla Glue. I have no idea what to do. I tried washing it, it doesn’t come off.”
Despite putting coconut oil on her hair, she had no luck in removing it…
She has since set up a GoFundMe page so people could “help with [her] Gorilla Glue situation,” saying she might have to have surgery to remove the glue.
A number of TikTok users have been left puzzled as to why Reyes used glue in her hair…
With some suggesting the stunt was an effort to gain attention.
Reyes recently announced that she’d received enough donations to get the glue removed…
One generous person even donated $3,000!
“You guys know it’s definitely been a journey with this Gorilla Glue. It’s been crazy, so thank you so much.”
Let’s hope no one else falls victim to the dreaded adhesive.
