A Louisiana woman is speaking out after she gained social media fame for spraying her hair with Gorilla Glue.

Tessica Brown spoke to WGNO about the mishap and how she was able to finally free her follicles of the spray adhesive.

Brown tells WGNO that she got help from Dr. Michael Obeng from Los Angeles who performed a procedure at no cost.

"He took it out and not only did he take it out, he took it out with something he made himself," Brown told the station.

Thousands have followed Brown's struggle with her hair after she posted her blunder to social media.

Brown from Chalmette said in her posts that she ran out of a hair product called "Got2B Glued" and thought that Gorilla Glue spray adhesive would be a good substitute.

Gorilla Glue released a statement on February 8 about the incident, read that here.

A GoFundMe Page was set up to accept donations to help Brown in her recovery. A total of $23,893 was raised.

According to Brown's manager, some the money she has received from followers and well-wishers will go to an organization called The Restore Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery.
