A Louisiana woman who went viral after struggling to remove Gorilla Glue from her hair claims that the hospital nor the company’s advice helped remove the hardened adhesive.
Now she’s considering a lawsuit to get out of the sticky situation, according to TMZ.
Tessica Brown hired an attorney and is weighing litigation against Gorilla Glue, because while the product’s label warns against using on eyes, skin or clothing – it does not mention hair – the outlet reports.
During Brown’s weekend trip to the ER, healthcare workers put acetone on the back of her head, but instead of getting to the root of the problem, it burned her scalp and only made the glue gooey before hardening back up, according to TMZ.
Gorilla Glue is aware of the dilemma, and tweeted a statement reading: “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.”
The company goes on to reiterate that its product “is not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent.”
Brown posted last week that her hair had been stuck in place for a month after she ran out of her usual hair product and opted to use the extra-strong superglue instead.
The super strong glue is only intended to be used with products like wood, laminate, fabric, paper and cardboard.
