Woman Ends Up In Hospital After Applying Gorilla Glue Instead Of Hairspray

We've seen a lot of beauty hacks and tips online where people use everyday products to style or help their hair. From making at-home masks for shine and silkiness, to remedies for split ends, people online are pretty handy when it comes to hair care.

However, there are just some products that don't belong in hair.

Sometimes, people make a small mistake that can cost them big time, like using the wrong kind of household product on their hair, resulting in some serious consequences.

Recently, one TikTok user learned this lesson the hard way.

Tessica Brown explained in a recent TikTok video that she had run out of a hair product she usually uses on her hair, so she tried to get "creative."

Brown usually uses Got2b Glued Freeze Spray.

The popular hairspray helps keep her hair in place and styled the way she wants. But when she ran out, she didn't know what to replace it with.

Instead of using her typical spray, she used Gorilla Glue.

Brown thought that using Gorilla Glue spray would be a useful hairspray alternative. Little did she know her hair would be stuck — like, stuck stuck.

Brown shared with TikTok followers that her hair is "stuck" and she can't get the glue out.

"It don't move. I've washed my hair 15 times, and it don't move," she told her TikTok followers.

Before she knew it, Brown had "Gorilla Glue" trending on Twitter.

People quickly began looking at Brown's video and sharing memes online about her issues.

One person even made some fan art of Brown, which she reshared on her Instagram page.

Many people online are hoping for a positive outcome, though.

The vast majority of people on Twitter were "concerned" for Brown and wanted things to have a "good outcome."

One person even reached out to see if Brown had finally gotten it out.

As it turns out, the Gorilla Glue is still in her hair and her hairstyle is still stuck in the very same spot that it was before.

After the product became trending, Gorilla Glue itself issued a statement about using their product on hair.

The company told POPSUGAR:

"We do not recommend using Gorilla Glue's Spray Adhesive or any of our products in hair as they are considered permanent.

"Our Gorilla Spray Adhesive clearly states on our packaging that it dries permanent and forms a heavy duty bond."

Ultimately, Brown ended up going to the hospital to try and remove the glue from her hair.

The hospital used a combination of acetone and sterile water to remove the glue, but reportedly, the treatment did not work.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Brown to help cover the costs of any further treatment she might need for her hair.

Since sharing her original video on TikTok and updates on social media, Brown's story continues to gain viral attention.

Her story was covered by major news outlets and thousands of people have reached out to her on social media. While many people showed her support, there were some harsh comments and memes making fun of her situation.

Numerous people have defended Brown online and reminded others to treat her situation with respect.

Even Chance The Rapper commented on her story.

Like a lot of other people online, Chance sent Brown a hopeful message for a speedy recovery and reminded people not to laugh about this unfortunate situation.

Brown has responded to the outpouring of support from people online.

In an Instagram post, Brown thanked people for their kind messages and revealed that it has been difficult to have strangers judging her.

Brown also revealed that she was traveling to Los Angeles.

A surgeon has offered to help Brown remove the glue from her hair. In an interview with TMZ, Brown said she is hoping this treatment works as her hair has continued to harden and burn her scalp as the result of the glue.
