A woman who went viral over the weekend for using Gorilla Glue on her hair is reportedly suing the company.
Tessica Brown, from Louisiana, US, rushed to the hospital where she received treatment from doctors after the situation.
She claimed she spent a month trying to remove the Gorilla Glue from her head before checking into the St Bernard Parish Hospital.
Following the ordeal, Tessica uploaded a video to her 752,700 followers on TikTok where she explained what had happened.
The young woman claimed she couldn’t wash out the glue and her hair was so tight that she couldn’t even shave her head.
Now according to TMZ, Tessica is reportedly considering a lawsuit after hiring an attorney for the incident.
During her weekend trip to the hospital, doctors put acetone on the back of her head which burnt her scalp.
Gorilla Glue was made aware of the situation and has since tweeted a statement.
It read: “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.”
The company went onto explain that its product “is not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent”.
Last Thursday, Tessica posted on TikTok that her hair had been stuck in place for a month after she ran out of hairspray.
She opted to use the extra-strong super glue which is only intended for products like wood, laminate, fabric, paper and cardboard.
Speaking on the social media platform, Tessica said: “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.”
She added: “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.”
Her first video racked up 132,200 comments and 3.8million views since it was uploaded last week.
In the clip, she said: “Hey y’all. For those of you that know me know that my hair has been like this for about a month now.”
She continued: “It’s not by choice. No, it’s not by choice.”
When patting her hair, it became clear the TikTok user had been left with a helmet-like cap made of hair and glue.
In a follow-up video, Tessica further explained to her followers what happens when she shampoos her hair.
She concluded: “Look, you wipe it off and nothing happens. Like, this is the life that I’m living at this point.”
