The woman who went viral after spraying Gorilla Glue in her hair will meet with a plastic surgeon in the hopes of saving her hair.
Tessica Brown received a generous offer from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng, who says he can save her hair in a lengthy procedure.
Brown will fly Wednesday to Louisiana — an all expenses paid trip — to have the procedure done, TMZ reports.
Dr. Obeng estimates it will take 2 or 3 days to completely eliminate the superglue from her scalp.
Brown went viral after she published a TikTok video complaining that her hair was stiff as a board after using Gorilla Glue adhesive spray as holding hairspray.
Sources tell TMZ that Brown spent 22 hours in the emergency room at St. Bernard Parish Hospital, in Chalmette, Louisiana, where staff used acetone, the ingredient in nail polish remover, in a failed attempt to remove the superglue.
Dr. Obeng tells TMZ he feels sorry for Tessica, and he’s performing the expensive procedure free of charge. The estimated cost for the procedure is $12,500.
Brown also met with an attorney to discuss her legal options against the Gorilla Glue manufacturer.
Gorilla Glue issued a statement after Brown’s story went viral.
“We are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair. We are glad to see in her recent video that Miss Brown has received medical treatment from her local medical facility and wish her the best.”
A GofundMe account raised $14,352 of a $1,500 goal to pay for wigs and hair weave products until her hair grows back.
