Previously, a woman went viral after she reportedly revealed that she used Gorilla Glue spray in place of a hairspray substitute. The woman noted that her hairstyle remained stuck almost a month after using the spray, and that she has tried to wash her hair numerous times to no avail. Now, Gorilla Glue has responded to the woman’s viral video.
The brand responded to a repost of the video via Twitter, and explained the way their products should be used. Gorilla Glue said “Hi there, we are sorry to learn about your experience! We do not recommend using our products in hair as they are considered permanent. You can try soaking the affected area in warm, soapy water or applying rubbing alcohol to the area.” Since then, the brand issued a statement saying rubbing alcohol may be a solution to the woman’s issue, and wished her the best. Take a look above.

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.”
