'Gorilla Glue Girl' Releases Hair Care Line After Disastrous Viral Video

Tessica Brown, otherwise known as Gorilla Glue Girl, has announced the release of her own hair care line, months after she went viral for spraying her tresses with the adhesive.

Brown shared the news in an Instagram video yesterday, showing one of her new products, a hair oil, as part of her line, ironically named "Forever Hair."

"As y'all already know, about four months ago I ran out of hairspray and ended up using Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad idea," she said. "As a result of that, I ended up losing my hair and having scalp damage. But since then I have been working with professionals to create and formulate a hair growth oil."

According to Brown, she needed an oil to heal her scalp and help grow her hair back. She claims to have used the oil for two months and has already noticed its beneficial effects.

In February, Brown took the internet by storm when she shared a video of the aftermath of using Gorilla Glue on her hair after running out of got2B Glued hairspray. The bottles look somewhat similar, but the effects couldn't have been further. Brown was left unable to wash or brush the glue out, and documented her intense struggle to remove it.

"We are aware of the situation and we are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair," said Gorilla Glue in a statement at the time.

After unsuccessful visits to the ER, and being advised to use oils and acetone to remove it, Brown was left in no better position than before. Luckily, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng offered to perform a $12,500 procedure for free, using medical-grade adhesive remover on her while under a light anesthesia.

Brown obliged, and in a moment that was so-2021-it-hurts, TMZ even filmed the procedure before posting it online.

"It was horrible, I was scared to even bring it to social media because I knew I was going to get backlash," Brown told USA Today. "But at the end of the day. I'm glad I put it on social media because I did get the help that I needed."

Months on however, and Brown is now capitalizing on her misfortune, introducing followers to her three-product line. Forever Hair includes an $18 stimulating hair oil, $14 holding hair spray and a 'coming soon' edge control.

Followers rushed to congratulate Brown on her new business venture on social media, including Dr. Obeng himself, who commented: "Congratulations Tessica. God is good and may he continue to bless you."

Newsweek contacted reps for Tessica Brown for comment.
