Who is Tessica Brown aka Gorilla Glue Girl? Louisiana mom goes viral for 'glued' hair that sent her to ER
TikTok user Tessica Brown made several heads turn after she uploaded a video on TikTok talking about the situation she put herself in by applying Gorilla Glue on her hair. She posted the video, as a warning to others and the TikToker has gone viral, with the Internet losing it over her slicked-back hair that hasn't moved over multiple washes. Now, Brown is apparently in the ER for her actions.
She posted pictures on her Instagram handle on Saturday, February 6, going to an emergency room in what appears to be Chalmette, Louisiana. The first picture she posted on Instagram was from outside the facility, captioned with nothing but a couple of teary-eyed emojis. She also posted a picture of her getting treated with folded hand emojis.
On February 4, 2021, she posted a video explaining how she got into this position in the first place. "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. When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little Got2b Glued Spray, you know, just to keep it in place. Well, I didn't have any more Got2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea."

Tessica has gone on to upload more videos including one where she washes her hair to show that it doesn’t do anything. She also said that she put coconut and tea tree oil on her hair and still hasn’t seen any positive results.

Within a few days, she has gained around 3.5 million likes on her video. Tessica, who can be found on TikTok under the name @im_d_ollady, has only posted seven videos to the social media site. However, she has managed to make headlines with her Gorilla Glue video.
Claiming that her hair is now completely stuck in place thanks to Gorilla Glue, it seems that the TikToker has exhausted all her options of fixing this herself and is going to the ER. Her videos went so viral that the official Gorilla Glue TikTok handle posted some advice to salvage her hair.
They also tweeted saying: "Hi there, we are sorry to learn about your experience! We do not recommend using our products in hair as they are considered permanent. You can try soaking the affected area in warm, soapy water or applying rubbing alcohol to the area."
