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

In a TikTok video, which has been viewed more than 15 million times, Tessica says: "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 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.

"I've washed it 15 times and it don't move."

After going viral for her hair-related woes, Tessica has now set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for herself.

She's even had support from Chance the Rapper, who tweeted: "I'm glad mfs actually supporting her thru this. When I watched the video the second time it was hard to laugh cause I could tell shorty genuinely didn't know she had put one of the worlds most powerful adhesives in her s***. I hope she recovers well."

Yesterday, Tessica shared a little insight to the gruelling process ahead of her, posting a photo of sterile water and nail varnish remover pads.

"This is really about to be a long process," she wrote in the caption.

After Tessica's story went viral, Gorilla Glue responded to her dilemma, having shared some advice with TMZ.

The company said: "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'.
