Tessica Brown Shows Off Gorilla Glue-Free Hair After Undergoing Lengthy Procedure To Get Rid

Tessica Brown, the woman who used Gorilla Glue on her hair after running out of her usual styling product, is finally glue-free and has showed off her new, shorter 'do.

Brown, from Louisiana, hit headlines last week after she revealed on TikTok she had used the super-strength glue on her hair a month ago and was still unable to get rid.

Poor Brown, 40, put up with the pain until she realised enough was enough and went to hospital where medics applied acetone to try and help shift the adhesive.

But unfortunately for Brown that didn't work, either, and she ended up with burns on her scalp due to the solution.

After spotting her unusual and unfortunate predicament, Los Angeles-based cosmetic surgeon Dr Michael Obeng offered to help fix the problem for free and Brown grateful took him up on his offer.

The surgeon told KCBS-TV: "When I found out this was a reality, you can only feel compassion and sympathy for Tessica.

Dr Obeng used a mixture made of medical-grade glue remover, a combination of aloe vera and olive oil and a small amount of acetone.

After testing the £9,030 ($12,500) treatment out on a dummy head first, Dr Obeng applied the solution to Brown before he set about her barnet with scissors and tweezers to try and gently prise apart the matted hair and glue and cutting away any hardened area of glue.

Although it sounds fairly straightforward, the procedure took around four hours, according to the Metro, and Brown had to given anaesthesia to help cope with the pain.

She's also been given some painkillers and steroids to help prevent any pain or swelling post-procedure.

Brown, who set up a crowdfunder to help cover the costs she incurred during the whole bizarre situation, is now glue-free and sporting a new shorter hair style.

Posting on Instagram, she wrote: "Words cannot even explain how I feel about @drmichaelkobeng you really gave me my life back and I am forever grateful."

Despite being all the news and social media for the past few days, Brown says she initially shared the video in hopes of getting some advice and had no plans to end up going viral.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: "I never was going to take this to social media. The reason I took this to social media was because I didn't know what else to do

"And I know somebody out there could have told me something. I didn't think for one second when I got up the next morning it was gonna be everywhere."
