Tessica Brown, or  @im_d_ollady on TikTok, was able to grasp the world’s attention on Thursday, Feb. 4 when she decided to upload a video on TikTok, in which she explains what got her in a sticky situation. She started off the video by telling her followers that she had done her hair in a slick parted ponytail and typically uses Göt2b Glued Spray but when she ran out she used a different alternative (Gorilla Glue Spray).

“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,” Brown said. “Well, I didn’t have any more Göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea.”

Thursday, Feb 6 Brown finally checked into the hospital in hopes of removing the hardened adhesive. She continues to post multiple updates on her Instagram, Tiktok, and Youtube on the state of her hair. Knowing that she has had this hairstyle for about a month with the Gorilla Glue spray it seemed like nothing but laughs and jokes when the video initially went viral only to later see one of her latest videos attempting to break down the glue bonds in her hair. One of her friends wipes nail polish remover pads across her head while also using sterile water to lessen the burning sensation. You can clearly see Brown in severe pain, she jumps at the end of the video while her friend panics in an attempt to ease her burns.

After the widespread videos of Brown’s hair journey, the maker of the Gorilla Glue company even reached out to TMZ on tips to help. They said Brown could use rubbing alcohol on her head, but warned that if it had actually been in place for a month, it was “likely fractured at the root.” All in all the company, many of her new fans and followers are closely watching and waiting for more updates while wishing her the best of luck!
