In a now-viral video, TikTok user Im_D_Ollady—real name Tessica Brown warned viewers to stay away from Gorilla Glue spray when in need of a hairspray substitute.
Brown explained how she turned to Gorilla Glue when she ran out of hairspray but after weeks of washing, her hair remained stuck in the original hairstyle. “Hey, y’all. For those of you that know me know that my hair has been like this for about a month now. It’s not by choice. No, it’s not by choice,” said Brown. “When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little Göt2b Glued Spray, you know, just to keep it in place. Well, I didn’t have any more göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea.”
“My hair, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It. Don’t. Move.” She went on to demonstrate just how immovable her hair was as a result of applying the adhesive. “I’ma tell y’all like this: If you ever, ever run out of Göt2b Glued Spray, don’t ever use this. Unless you want your hair to be like that forever.”
