“Gorilla Glue Girl” Tessica Brown Launched a Hair Care Line

·2 min read

Tessica Brown, the woman known to the internet as “Gorilla Glue Girl,” dealt with a serious hair nightmare earlier this year – and now she’s launching a hair care line inspired by her viral experience.

As noted by TMZ, Tessica is launching a line of three products — hairspray, edge control, and hair growth drops — under the name Forever Hair. She tells TMZ that the products were inspired by her experience after she sprayed Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive in her hair and dealt with the product for weeks, then had to undergo a four-hour medical process to remove it. 

The products were created by Tessica in collaboration with hair care professionals and are designed to give great hold, but also to address hair loss and damage — and, of course, to wash out easily. “I needed this oil to heal my scalp, grow my hair back, stimulate my hair follicles, and on top of all that, I needed it to be all-natural," Tessica said of the Growth Stimulating Oil.

If you’re not familiar with the original Gorilla Glue Girl story, here’s a refresher. In early 2021, Tessica went viral for using Gorilla Glue instead of hold spray, and the product, which is not intended to be used on skin or hair, sealed her hair to her scalp for a month. She visited the hospital several times and endured all sorts of treatment, including using nail polish wipes to try and dissolve the product, but nothing worked until she teamed up with Dr. Michael K. Obang, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who spent four hours dissolving and removing the glue from her scalp – and saving her hair in the process.

Two of the three products are currently available on Forever Hair's website. Forever Hold spray retails for $14, while the Edge Control Stimulating Oil retails for $18. Tessica also offers some merch shouting out her viral moment, including this graphic tee featuring the iconic snap from her TikTok video. Tessica told TMZ in a follow-up interview that the edge control, as well as shampoo and conditioner, is coming soon and that she will keep expanding the product offering as often as she can. She also mentioned she had already sold "over a thousand bottles of the oil" before admitting that she "wants to be the Kylie Jenner of hair products."
