When Tessica Brown ran out of hair spray she reached for what she thought was the next best thing.

Gorilla glue.

Now her hair has been stuck in the same position on her head for more than a month – and she needs medical treatment.

The water resistant adhesive which is used to bond floor tiles and wooden floors is said to be permanent. 

Brown, from Louisiana in the United States, posted a video on Tiktok saying she washed her hair 15 times with no luck.

“My hair, don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move,” she says in the video. 

In one of the clips she is seen smearing her head with shampoo, but it makes no difference to the glue stuck to her hair.

TMZ reports that the hospital supplied her with nail polish remover, saline water and wipes to remove the glue. But even those items proved useless and only caused a burning sensation on her scalp. 

Without offering any permanent solution, Gorilla Glue company spray reached out to her on Twitter and said: “Hi there, we are sorry to learn about your experience! 

“We don’t recommend using our products in hair as the glue is considered permanent,” the message read which is not particularly helpful. 

“You can try soaking the affected area in warm, soapy water or applying rubbing alcohol to the area,” which seemed a little weak seeing as she had already gone for medical assistance. 

Brown received a lot of comments, some sympathetic, and some downright rude!
