This is a huge teachable moment.
A woman went viral over the weekend after she shared with the Internet that she used gorilla glue on her hair, and it’s been stuck in that style for over a month.
Tessica Brown shared with her Tik Tok followers her “living nightmare.” In the video, she explained that she only used the gorilla glue because she ran out of a different type of glue (got 2b, which is a hair spray), and thought she could substitute it with gorilla glue.
She revealed that she tried putting conditioner, oil, and acetone in her hair but still no luck. Brown went to the hospital and spent 22 hours in the ER, still no luck reported on TMZ. The nurses put acetone on her head but that caused her scalp to burn.
The article also reports Ms. Brown hired an attorney and is deciding if she’ll take legal action against the gorilla glue company. A source told the publication, the label on the product she used says do not use on eyes, skin, or clothing … with no mention of hair, which Tessica feels is misleading.
The gorilla glue company apologized to Ms. Brown and said, the spray adhesive is intended for mounting things to surfaces such as paper, cardboard, wood, laminate, and fabric.
We are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair. We are glad to see in her recent video that Miss Brown has received medical treatment from her local medical facility and wish her the best. pic.twitter.com/SoCvwxdrGc
