An American woman who styled her hair with extra strong glue called for help on social media, charging more than $ 15,000 before surgery.
Louisiana resident Tessica Brown posted a video on the TicTac social network late last week, explaining that after she ran out of her regular hair gel, she used extra strong glue as an alternative in the form of a spray bottle.
“Bad, bad, bad idea” Something black forty on the verge of tears plastered with hair on her head. “My hair has been like this for a month. This is not my choice. ”
This chemical glue, especially acetone and propane, usually does not come into contact with the skin according to the product sheet, as it can cause severe irritation.
In the following days, while Tessica Brown tried various products and lotions, including coconut oil, without success, internet users offered her a thousand and one solutions.
On Saturday, she posted pictures of herself in an emergency room at a hospital in Chalmetto, Louisiana, hoping to find help.
The visit was not enough and Tessica Brown made it clear on Instagram on Monday: “It’s going to be a really long process.”
Glue maker Gorilla Glue posted a message on Twitter saying “sorry” for the “unfortunate incident” and the new social media martyr is happy to seek medical advice. “This situation is unique, because this product is not prescribed for hair, because it is considered permanent,” said the company with family capital.
To cover the medical costs resulting from her treatment, Tessica Brown has appealed for donations on the GoFundMe site and has already raised more than $ 15,000 on Tuesday.
The TMZ site posted a video, shot on Tuesday in which a friend cuts off her ponytail and applies the new product, without much success.
Tessica Brown “is going to Los Angeles this week to meet cosmetic surgeon Michael Obeng,” a doctor’s spokeswoman told AFP. “He removes the glue.”
According to TMZ, Michael Obeng volunteered his services free of charge to Tic Tac Toe, which has nearly 800,000 members.
Beyonc యొక్క’s hairstylist Neil Farina has also stepped in to help through her Instagram account.
