By now, you must have heard about the Gorilla Glue Girl story which went viral some days back.
The latest update is she has finally undergone a surgical procedure to remove the glue from her hair.
Tessica Brown had taken to TikTok where she revealed she was unable to wash her hair about a month after she made it.
The 40-year-old also disclosed using a Gorilla Glue adhesive spray after she ran out of her regular hair spray.

Her videos soon went viral sparking reactions on social media, while some criticized her for making such a grave mistake, others empathized with her which earned her the name #GorillaGlueGirl.
Michael Obeng, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, offered to help her get rid of the glue (free of charge) — in a procedure that she would have paid $12,500.
A Go Fund Me also set up to assist her raised over $18,000 beating her earlier goal of $1500.
The procedure was done successfully after a four-hour duration on Thursday, Feb 11.
Speaking in an interview after the surgery, Obeng said he combined medical grade adhesive remover, aloe vera, olive oil, and a dash of acetone to perform the procedure.
“She had a lot of irritation on the scalp especially the edges of her hair, of her head because of all of the chemicals that she has put in, and the hair was actually very, very tough, very, very matted down, and it would not lift up. She’s very, very lucky that she did not sustain a lot of injury to her scalp.
