A woman who went viral on TikTok after using Gorilla Glue on her hair is now reportedly considering suing the company, TMZ reports.
Tessica Brown, a mother from Louisiana, took over TikTok last week when she shared the story of how she used Gorilla Glue spray, an adhesive that’s supposed to be used on materials like wood, metal or glass, as an alternative to hairspray.
Now, her hair has been stuck solid for over a month, and after spending 22 hours in hospital and failing to have it removed, she’s now considering suing the company after claiming that their labels are misleading.
Woman goes viral on TikTok after getting Gorilla Glue stuck in her hair
An American woman called Tessica Brown, went viral on TikTok last week after she revealed that she had Gorilla Glue stuck in her hair.
In a video posted to her TikTok @im_d_ollady, she said: “Hey y’all 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.”
She then continued to say that when she usually does her hair, she likes to finish it off with a bit of Göt2b Glued Spray to keep it in place. But, she ran out of her usual spray, so instead, she decided to use Gorilla Glue Spray.
“Bad, bad, bad idea,” she said whilst holding up a bottle of the industrial adhesive.
“Y’all look, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It. Don’t. Move. I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it don’t move. Stiff where? My hair,” she continued.
She has become known worldwide as TikTok’s Gorilla Glue girl after the video accumulated a huge 20.6 million views and went viral across social media.
Now she wants to sue Gorilla Glue
After using Gorilla Glue spray as an alternative to hairspray, Tessica is reportedly considering suing Gorilla Glue after having to go to hospital to try and remove the spray.
Tessica spent 22 hours in the Emergency Room where healthcare workers put acetone on her head to try and remove the glue, TMZ reports. However, this proved unsuccessful.
Sources told TMZ that the rubbing alcohol burned her scalp made the glue gooey before hardening back up in her hair.
Now, she has reportedly hired a lawyer to try and sue the company, arguing that on the back of the bottle it says that the product shouldn’t be used on eyes, skin or clothing but doesn’t say anything about hair, something that she feels is misleading.
