By now we've all seen the bizarre viral story of the woman who got Gorilla Glue stuck in her hair, right? Well, if you had any doubts as to the strength of the adhesive, check out this product demo video:
The heavy duty adhesive can be used to stick bricks to concrete - but Tessica Brown claims she put it in her hair after she ran out of hairspray.
The result, as you might expect, has been disastrous, with Tessica claiming she can't wash out the glue - nor can she even shave her head, as the hair is so tight against her scalp.
Explaining how she landed herself in the predicament, she told her followers in a video: "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.
"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."
Watch her open up about the predicament here:
In her initial video, which has been viewed more than 15 million times, Tessica said: "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."
At one point in the clip, she patted her head to enable viewers to get more of an insight into what the glue product has left her with - essentially a helmet made of hair and adhesive.
Some people questioned whether she really couldn't get it out, and she subsequently posted videos of herself attempting to remove it with shampoo.
Now, after spending a month trying to extricate the product using coconut oil and tea tree oil, she has admitted herself to the St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette, Louisiana.
Gorilla Glue has responded to her pickle with some advice, telling TMZ: "The less aggressive solvent for her hair/scalp would be rubbing alcohol to try and saturate her hair and then gently comb it out and shampoo."
The company went on to say that, as Tessica's hair has been stuck for some time now, it's most 'likely fractured at the root', adding that Gorilla Glue staff 'certainly hope for the best'.
