Tessica Brown is giving the world an update after she successfully went through surgery to remove gorilla glue from her hair.
Tessica revealed her new look on Instagram and wrote the first statement post-surgery. She began with the phrase “I am not my hair,” quoting the classic India Aire song. She went on to say that she loves the people that have been supporting her. Take a look:
“#IAMNOTMAHAIR Shout out to @supa_dee0223 over at BELOW ZERO for my new cut, if your comfortable with your hair let see those pictures also wanted you guys to know I love y’all so much The good outweighed the bad And I am forever grateful.”
The last few weeks have been hell for Tessica. She shared a video online explaining how she put gorilla glue in her hair as a substitute for strong hair spray. She quickly learned gorilla glue isn’t meant for hair, and Tessica was stuck with the same hairstyle for over a month. She ultimately needed surgery to get it removed.
People online donated over $20,000 to her GoFundMe me, Tessica plans on donating some of the money to charity.
