Hold on, say what? Tessica also known as the ‘Gorilla Glue Girl’ plans to sue Gorilla Glue for not having a warning label that says don’t use the spray on your hair. If ‘Stanger Things’ was a year, we could say that 2021 is a leading contender.
Let’s go back to the beginning really quick because something is not adding up. Tessica posted a video to her TikTok which was later shared on Twitter explaining how she used gorilla glue as a substitute for her Got2b hair spray.

In the video, she explains how she ran out of her hair hold spray Got2b. She used Gorilla Glue instead, which is used to bond things together like wood and other items. She used the super glue spray on her hair, and her hair has been glued solid for over a month. She posted a follow-up video showing how she washed her hair 15 times and it still wouldn’t move.

Gorilla Glue company released a statement and gave some advice to Tessica to help get the glue out. They suggested that she used rubbing alcohol as a cure for her problem.

According to TMZ, sources close to Tessica tell them that even after the ER visit and the suggestions from the company she is still unable to get the glue out. The hospital put acetone on the back of her head, but it burned her scalp and only made the glue gooey before hardening back up. The healthcare workers were said to be “dumbfounded” by the situation.
As if this situation isn’t already strange enough, Tessica is planning to sue Gorilla Glue because the glue is still not coming out. She hired a lawyer to help her weigh out her options for taking legal action against GG. Her legal team is arguing that the label on the product she used says ‘do not use on eyes, skin or clothing‘ … with no mention of hair, which Tessica feels is misleading.
Ok so let’s take a look at what is on the spray can that she used.
GG says all of its products are considered permanent and the packaging states it too … but Tessica felt it was okay because the product said multi-use. The can literally says it bonds paper, cardboard, wood, laminate, and fabric. I think it’s safe to assume that if it bonds wood, it’s probably not best for your hair.
Ever since going viral Tessica has got a verified Instagram account, thousands of new followers and has currently raised over $10,000 and counting on her GoFundMe account.
