How to Remove Gorilla Glue From Hair

The woman who sprayed gorilla glue in her hair has become an internet sensation.  Who ever thought that a ponytail purposely slicked back with an aerosol glue spray would  command such attention from a global audience? Did Tessica Brown, of Louisiana know that she would receive this amount of attention when she grabbed her can of Gorilla Glue and sprayed it on her scalp and hair.

There are a lot of questions surrounding Tessica’s Gorilla glue experience. For instance, why aren’t Tessica’s hands binded to her hair as well?  When she used the Gorilla glue spray, she would have smoothed or patted the glue over her hair with her hands or even a brush.  If this were to be the case, her hands or a brush would be stuck to her head and hair as Gorilla glue is a strong binding aerosol agent.  

Tessica stated that she would normally use Got 2 be glue but she ran out of it and opted for the Gorilla glue. In the time since she announced her situation on social media, she’s received an overwhelming response of comments, posts and questions from people everywhere.  

Due to the tragic circumstances surrounding the incident, Tessica will be in for a long healing process being that the glue infiltrated, not only her hair but her scalp.  The scalp is a large area of thick skin and the instructions on containers of Gorilla glue prohibits use of Gorilla glue on skin.  Tessica is visiting Dr. Michael K Obeng in Los Angeles to attempt to  remove the glue from her hair.   Will she have any luck there?  Will she end up going bald? No one knows for sure but it won’t be easy from here on out.

 At any rate, if the visit doesn’t result in the desired outcome, keep in mind that there is always wigs!  Essence Wigs can help you in selection of a wig that will be a good replacement for your naturally kinky hair.  We wish you a speedy recovery! 

We came up with a solution to help Tessica remove the Gorilla glue from her hair.  This can also be used by anyone who has had a Gorilla glue or general adhesive mishap or regret:
