“Gorilla Glue Girl” is in another hairy situation — this time, losing her locks in chunks.
Two days after dyeing her hair brown with Revlon box dye, Tessica Brown — known on the internet as the infamous “Gorilla Glue Girl” — is watching her hair fall out.
Brown wanted to cover up some gray hairs after not touching her locks since her Gorilla Glue faux-pas earlier this year, said her manager Gina Rodriguez in an email.
But after slathering it on her head, her scalp began to burn and she washed it immediately, only to witness her hair falling out.
Rodriguez said the chemicals used to remove the glue from her hair this year interacted with the dye, causing her hair to melt.
Now, Brown is going to LA FUE Hair Clinic in Pasadena, California, to receive stem cell therapy and PRP shots to stop the shedding and promote growth.
“She is hoping it will work otherwise her next option is shave her head and start over,” Rodriguez told The Post.
Despite being upset at her misfortunes, she decided to document it all on social media, and, of course, went viral.
In the TikTok video posted Thursday, Dec. 2, Brown explains how she thought her hair “was strong enough to take chemicals.”
To her dismay, it wasn’t.
She put the dye in her hair and upon rinsing it out, her hair came out in clumps, she said as she held up strands of her own hair for the camera.
She even pulled at the locks still on her head, showing how easily it pulls out into her hands.
“Ma’am at this point, please leave your hair alone,” wrote one commenter.
“Girl don’t touch your hair anymore,” another said.
While some users were worried about her hair, others made jokes about “paying the bills,” accusing her of a publicity stunt for money and recognition. Viewers claimed the hair she held up for the camera was fake, saying she’s “not fooling anyone.”
In January this year, Brown became an internet sensation when she slicked her hair back with Gorilla Glue after running out of traditional hair glue.
She was in a rush leaving to go on a date to a lake, and turned to the super-strength adhesive as a quick remedy to her flyaways.
“I’m like you know what? I can use this and as soon as I come home I can take it off, you know wash it out,” she previously told The Post. “That is not what happened.”
The Gorilla Glue wouldn’t wash out of her hair, and days later, she realized it was never going to. She thought she was going to lose her hair — until celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng heard of Brown’s sticky situation and saved her hair in a long procedure in Beverly Hills in February.
