Plastic Surgeon Offers To Remove Gorilla Glue From Woman's Hair For Free

A plastic surgeon has offered to remove Gorilla Glue from a woman's hair, free of charge. Watch her explain her predicament here:


Tessica Brown went viral after she used the heavy duty adhesive as a substitute for hairspray.

After spending a month trying to extricate the product using coconut oil and tea tree oil, she admitted herself to the St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette, Louisiana.


But now it looks like Dr Michael Obeng is set to come to her rescue.

The plastic surgeon confirmed to LADbible he is due to remove the glue from Tessica's hair after she accepted his offer of treatment.

TMZ reports that Tessica is due to fly out to LA tomorrow (Wednesday) for two or three days of treatment.

The procedure would usually cost $12,500 (£9,079), but Dr Obeng feels so bad for Tessica that he's agreed to do it at no cost.


He's one of countless people across the globe who has sympathised with Tessica's plight.

Opening up about her ordeal in a TikTok video - which has now been viewed more than 20 million times - she 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."

Explaining how she ended up in this situation, she said: "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."

According to Tessica, she can't wash out the glue - nor can she even shave her head as the hair is so tight against her scalp.

Gorilla Glue has wished her a speedy recovery from the 'unique situation' she finds herself in.


Tessica has also thanked everyone who has been rooting for her on social media.

In a post on Instagram, she said: "Right now I'm sending a virtual hug to everybody.

"Please continue praying that I can get through this and keep my hair lol."
