Plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Obeng, has also offered to help Tessica Brown safely remove the glue from her hair for free.

Tessica Brown, the woman who went viral after using Gorilla Glue as a hairspray, has raised over $17,000 via a GoFundMe.

Last week (Feb 3), Tessica Brown broke the internet after she posted a TikTok video in which she explained that her hair was permanently stuck in place after using Gorilla Glue as hairspray. Tessica revealed that she thought that she could use Gorilla Glue as a substitute for Got2b glued hairspray. However, Gorilla Glue is a powerful adhesive designed for furniture not hair.

Two days ago (Feb 2), Tessica set up a GoFundMe page simply titled Tessica Brown.
