Asia's Tech News Daily

‘Gorilla Glue girl’ is suffering from yet another hair catastrophe after trying to dye her grays — and is now watching her hair fall out in clumps.

Earlier this year, Louisiana’s Tessica Brown, 40, went viral for setting her hair with Gorilla Glue, a permanent adhesive that turned her hair into a hardened helmet that wouldn’t budge for over a month — until a plastic surgeon finally removed it.

But Tessica’s mane misery isn’t quite over yet: On Thursday, she revealed that she had tried to use Revlon box dye to cover up some gray hair but was met with with burning sensation, and soon huge clumps of hair were coming out of her head.

I thought my hair was strong enough to for chemicals ¿¿#tessicabrown #mahair #helpmyhairplease #fyp #imoverit

She shared her woes in a viral TikTok video this week, explaining: ‘I decided that I was gonna start wearing my real hair, but when I looked at it, you know, I had a gray hair here, a gray hair there.’

She said she thought her hair was ‘strong enough to take chemicals, but soon realized, ‘Dude, no, it wasn’t.’

According to her manager Gina Rodriguez, who spoke to the New York Post, Tessica put the dye on her head and quickly started to feel a burning sensation.

She washed it out immediately, but said that that was when the hair started falling out of her head. 

On camera, she demonstrates the large clumps coming out as she runs her fingers through her hair, and holds up a large collection of locks she already pulled out.

According to her manager Gina Rodriguez, the hair dye interacted poorly with the chemicals that were used to remove the glue from her hair earlier this year, which caused the hair to melt

'She is hoping it will work otherwise her next option is shave her head and start over,' said

Her manager said that the hair dye appears to have interacted poorly with the chemicals that were used to remove the glue from her hair earlier this year, which caused the hair to melt. 

She will then get stem cell therapy and PRP shots at LA FUE Hair Clinic in Pasadena, which will hopefully stop the shedding and promote hair growth.

‘She is hoping it will work otherwise her next option is shave her head and start over,’ said.

Tessica had gone viral in February after sharing a TikTok video in which she shared her unfortunate hair story. 

‘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,’ she said at the start of the clip.  

‘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.’

She then patted her head to show how the glue spray has turned her hair into a stiff, immovable helmet. 

‘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,’ she insisted. ‘Stiff where? My hair.’

Tessica ended her video with some words of advice: ‘If you ever, ever run out of Göt2b Glued Spray, don’t ever use this. Unless you want your hair to be like that forever.’ 

Tessica tried various methods to remove it, saying she’d washed it 15 times — and that it had been stuck for a month by the time she made the video.

She also spent 22 hours in the ER, where baffled healthcare workers put acetone on her head according to TMZ, but nothing seems to work. 

Sources told the publication that the acetone burned her scalp and only made the glue sticky before it dried up again, leaving her with the same immovable hair she started with. 

As her story spread, Gorilla Glue released a statement about the situation.

‘We are aware of the situation and we are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair,’ the brand wrote. 

‘This is a unique situation because this product s not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent. Our spray adhesive states in the warning label “do not swallow. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.”‘

The company added: ‘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.’

Ultimately, Tessica traveled to Los Angeles to visit Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng, who dissolved the Gorilla Glue and rescued the mother’s hair during a $12,500 procedure that took four hours to complete.   

In a video taken at Dr. Obeng’s office, Tessica — who was given a light anesthesia before the treatment — was seen lying on an operating table after the successful procedure, running her hands through her freed locks and tearing up with relief while marveling at the sensation.

Dr. Obeng, who offered Tessica the pricey treatment for free after seeing her plight online, used a custom mix of chemicals and natural products in order to dissolve the glue, having first practiced on a dummy head to ensure his formula would work.  

Throwback: Tessica used to wear her hair in braids before switching up her look

‘I looked up the compound, the main active ingredient in Gorilla Glue: polyurethane,’ Dr. Obeng explained to TMZ. ‘Then we figured out the science, how to break it down.’

He continued: ‘We bought chemicals that have components to dissolve the solvent, we used medical-grade adhesive remover that we use in the operating room.

‘Then we have another active ingredient, MGD. We added MGD to it — which is an aloe vera and olive oil mixture. Then we added a little acetone.’ 

During the procedure, the mixture was applied to Tessica’s hair using a spray bottle, while Dr. Obeng used medical tweezers and scissors to try and gently pull the matted hair apart, cutting the strands of glue that were holding her tresses together.  

Tessica was given painkillers and steroids to reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by the glue — and the chemicals that she used to try and remove it.  

Remarkably, Dr. Obeng was able to salvage much of Tessica’s hair, although she admitted after the procedure that she wishes she had visited him before asking her sister to chop off her lengthy ponytail in the hopes of removing the glue. 

‘I can scratch it!’ Tessica told the camera while running her nails along her scalp. ‘Now I wish I had waited for my sister to cut my ponytail off.’ 

Tessica found a business opportunity in her faux pas, and has launched a line of hair products called Forever Hair, which are now available to purchase online

The mother-of-five found a business opportunity in her faux pas, and in June  launched a line of hair products called Forever Hair, which are now available to purchase online.

Tessica told the Post at the time that she had been working with haircare professionals on the products, and unlike Gorilla Glue — which is not meant to be used on skin or hair — her Forever Hair formulas wash out.

The items available include a $14 Forever Hold hairspray, an $18 stimulating oil, and $13 edge control.

While the haircare products are directly inspired by her headline-making ordeal, Tessica is also selling other merchandise including T-shirts and sweats.

Two of the available T-shirts include the iconic image of Tessica showing off her rock-hard hair for the camera, while a hoodie bears a cartoon rendering of Tessica holding ‘heavy duty spray adhesive.’
