The mother-of-five who used Gorilla Glue on her hair has been spotted strolling in Los Angeles one day after undergoing a four-hour procedure to remove the adhesive.
40-year-old Tessica Brown made headlines after she revealed her month-long dilemma on TikTok. “Bad, bad, bad idea,” she expressed.
After more than 15 washes, a trip to the emergency room, and various treatments, her hair still won’t budge after using gorilla glue as hair spray.
Tessica appeared happy and carefree as she walked in LA one day after a plastic surgeon managed to free her from her hardened hair.
The mother of five from Violet, Louisiana, took to Instagram to express her gratitude for surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng, who managed to dissolve the Gorilla Glue in a $12,500 procedure.
“Words cannot even explain how I feel about @drmichaelkobeng you really gave me my life back and I am forever grateful,” she wrote.
According to reports, Dr. Obeng offered the treatment for free after seeing her shocking dilemma online. He used a custom mix of natural products and chemicals to dissolve the adhesive after practicing on a dummy head to make sure his formula would be effective.
He told TMZ: “I looked up the compound, the main active ingredient in Gorilla Glue: polyurethane. Then we figured out the science, how to break it down.
“We bought chemicals that have components to dissolve the solvent, we used medical-grade adhesive remover that we use in the operating room,” Dr. Obeng continued.
“Then we have another active ingredient, MGD. We added MGD to it – which is an aloe vera and olive oil mixture. Then we added a little acetone.”
Dr. Obeng remarkably salvaged much of the mother’s hair.
Tessica admitted that she wishes she had contacted him before asking her sister to cut her ponytail off.
