Tessica Brown, the Louisiana woman known as "Gorilla Glue Girl", was emotional as she arrived in Los Angeles, California for an intensive procedure to remove superglue from her scalp after she replaced the sticky substance with her usual spritz spray.

The 40-year-old daycare owner wore a red hoodie which she pulled down over her face mask as the paparazzi snapped photos. She was accompanied by two friends who gave her emotional support.

Brown declined to answer questions from the paparazzi when asked if reps from Got 2B Glued or Gorilla Glue reached out to her.

As TMZ first reported, Brown accepted an offer from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng to perform the 4-hour, $12,500 procedure for free.

Brown was placed under a light anesthesia during the procedure. After the procedure was over, she immediately reached for her hair to see if she had any left. She was emotional once she realized she could once again run her fingers through her hair -- although there wasn't much hair left to run her fingers through.

Dr. Obeng said used a solvent to break down the polyurethane -- the main ingredient in Gorilla Glue.

Brown said she was prepared to wear wigs and weave products for the rest of her life until she had the procedure done.

Brown went viral last week when she shared a video explaining how she replaced her usual spritz holding spray with Gorilla Glue spray because the label didn't say she couldn't spray the glue on her hair.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Brown said she's "over it" after her Instagram followers questioned whether her glue mixup was a stunt.

"The reason I went to the internet because I was never going to take this to social media [but] the reason I took it to social media was because I didn't know what else to do," she explained. "I knew somebody out there, somebody, could have told me something. I didn't think for one second it was going to be everywhere."

When asked how she's dealing with public scrutiny that she made up the story about spraying glue in her hair, Brown denied it was a publicity stunt.

"Again, it never was -- who in they right mind would have just said, 'Oh, let me just spray this on my head and I'm going to become famous overnight?' Never. Who would want that?"

Tessica Brown regrets sharing her hair-raising Gorilla Glue story on social media.

Brown became a minor celebrity overnight -- racking up 700,000 followers on Instagram -- after she shared her story about spraying Gorilla Glue in her hair.

Tessica said she took her story online to seek help and not for clout, cash and glory -- as many have suggested.

She tells Entertainment Tonight that she's "over it".

"The reason I went to the internet because I was never going to take this to social media [but] the reason I took it to social media was because I didn't know what else to do," she explained. "I knew somebody out there, somebody, could have told me something. I didn't think for one second it was going to be everywhere."

When asked how she's dealing with public scrutiny that she made up the story about spraying glue in her hair, Brown denied it was a publicity stunt.

"Again, it never was -- who in they right mind would have just said, 'Oh, let me just spray this on my head and I'm going to become famous overnight?' Never. Who would want that?"

Asked if she regretted it, Brown replied, "Definitely. I told my son today, I wish I could just, I mean, go back. Because I'm over it."

Brown denied a TMZ report that she'd hired an attorney to pursue a lawsuit against the maker of Gorilla Glue.

"No, I've never ever said that," she said. "Again, I don't know where all of this is coming from. Because, at this point, everybody is saying it."

A Louisiana woman who sprayed Gorilla Glue in her hair is suing the maker of Gorilla Glue after emergency room staff were unable to remove the hardened adhesive.

Tessica 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.

The source said the acetone burned her scalp and softened the glue to a sticky and gooey consistency before it hardened right back up again. She lost quite a bit of hair during the procedure.

Brown was given nail polish remover pads and a bottle of sterile water to take home. She was told to keep trying to remove the glue at home.

All other remedies failed to remove the glue -- and now Brown is in danger of going bald.

The source tells TMZ Brown retained a lawyer to discuss her options and to determine if she has a legal case against Gorilla Glue.

The product label warns against using the superglue in eyes, on skin (including the scalp) or clothing.

But Brown claims the label was "misleading" and didn't specifically state that the spray can't be used on hair.

Brown claims she thought the spray would be safe to use on her hair because the label said "multi-use."

A GofundMe page raised $9,000 for hair weave products and wigs for Brown who will probably lose all of her hair.

A Louisiana woman who went viral after using Gorilla Glue spray in her hair sought treatment in an emergency room over the weekend.

Tessica Brown went viral after she published a TikTok video complaining that her hair wouldn't move after using Gorilla Glue adhesive spray as holding hairspray.

Gorilla Glue is an ultra strong superglue product meant for bonding various nonporous materials such as metal and steel.

"My hair has been like this for about a month now. It's not by choice. Noooo," she said, before explaining that she used Gorilla Glue spray after she ran out of her holding spray.

"Y'all, look: My hair, it don't move. You hear what I'm telling you? It. Don't. Move. I've washed my hair 15 times and it don't move!"

On Saturday, Brown posted photos of herself in the emergency room at St. Bernard Parish Hospital, in Chalmette, Louisiana.

The ER doctor gave her packets of nail polish remover pads and a bottle of sterile water. She captioned a photo of the medical supplies: "This is really about to be a long process."

Her decision to seek treatment came after the maker of Gorilla Glue offered advice.

The company told TMZ that Brown could use rubbing alcohol on her head — but warned that if it had actually been in place for a month, her hair was "likely fractured at the root," meaning she will go bald.

Don't try this at home kids.

Kim Kardashian shows her new blonde hairdo in New York City

It's rare to see socialite Kim Kardashian taking time out of her busy schedule to acknowledge her fans. When these moments do occur, Kim often looks detached, cold and impersonal. Kim is only at ease when she's in the presence of other narcissists such as her husband Kanye West. Kim was in New York City yesterday showing off her new blonde weave extensions. She posed with fans as she exited her Manhattan home on the way to Mercer Hotel.

Beyonce Slapped and Hair Pulled at Concert

Burlesque singer Beyonce got more than she bargained for when she waded into the audience during her world tour concert in Serbia last week.

The 32-year-old singer was wading through the crowd with a bodyguard close on her tail. But that didn't stop one fanatic from slapping her while another fan grabbed a handful of her weave.

Grainy video shows Beyonce getting bumped and jostled as she struggled to walk through the frenzied crowd. Beyonce needs better security when her tour pulls into Duluth, GA on July 12.

But all jokes aside, I hope she's going to be okay. No one deserves to be assaulted while they're on their job.

Watch the video after the break.
