Tessica Brown's plight went viral earlier in February after she revealed that her hair had been stuck in the same style for a month since she substituted her usual Got2b Glued spray with the industrial-strength glue when she ran out.


"My hair, it don't move. You hear what I'm telling you? It don't move," she said in the original video posted to TikTok.


According to Gorilla Glue's website, the glue -- which is 100% waterproof and usually used for fixing bathroom tiles, wood flooring and decking -- can be removed with acetone or isopropyl alcohol.


When the company got wind of Brown's dilemma, it reached out to her via Twitter.

"Hi there, we are sorry to learn about your experience! We do not recommend using our products in hair as they are considered permanent," the message read. "You can try soaking the affected area in warm, soapy water or applying rubbing alcohol to the area."


On Saturday, Brown, known on Instagram as @im_d_ollady, took to the photo-sharing app to update her followers. She posted a series of images of herself checking into St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette, Louisiana in an effort to remove the product.

The lesson here is that we must all be careful of the products we use, whether its in our hair or on our skin. Hopefully, this turned out well for her, and the hospital managed to remove the glue in her hair without too much damage.


Please share with your friends, family and network. Hopefully they will not make the same mistake.
