Another TikToker Has Put Gorilla Glue In Her Hair Despite Warnings Joseph Muna Published in Feb 2021 / Updated in Sep 2021 Will people ever learn? Yet another TikToker has joined in with the disastrous Gorilla Glue hair challenge, despite warnings about the damage the adhesive can do. Tessica Brown went viral after using Gorilla Glue in her hair instead of hairspray. Despite trying to remove the adhesive from her hair for over 15 washes, it didn’t budge. She had to fly to LA to see a surgeon for treatment. After images of her disastrous mistake were widely shared online, you’d think people would avoid putting that product anywhere near their body. But that didn’t stop TikToker Avani Reyes from trying it out herself. The 20-year-old, who hails from Louisiana, shared footage of herself ‘accidentally’ lathering the extra-strong adhesive onto her short pink hair. In the video, Reyes tries to comb through her thoroughly-stuck hair, but it didn’t budge. https://www.tiktok.com/@avanireyes/video/6928815458799930629 Reyes, who has more than 505,000 followers, later posted numerous follow-up videos of herself going to the hospital and trying home remedies to remove the glue. She said in one of the clips: “I’m on my way to the hospital right now. My scalp is burning.”“I need to go to the hospital so they can remove this Gorilla Glue. I have no idea what to do and I tried washing it. It doesn’t come off.” In another clip, she said: “I just got out of the hospital, and they did nothing for me. Look at my hair.” Reyes then added that hospital staff advised her to try olive oil, tea tree oil, or coconut oil to remove the glue. Though Tessica had earlier proved that all of those oils are useless when it comes to removing the glue, Reyes still shared clips of herself trying them out. https://www.tiktok.com/@avanireyes/video/6929153657405508870 People who were following Reyes’s story weren’t surprised when she started a GoFundMe as Tessica did. Tessica raised nearly $24,000 to pay for her surgery, but her surgeon ended up offering to perform the procedure for free. But when Reyes set up a GoFundMe page so people could ‘help with [her] Gorilla Glue situation,’ many TikTokers slammed her instead. Some even questioned why she used the glue in her hair in the first place. Others suggested her stunt was an effort to gain fame following Tessica’s ordeal. Reyes later claimed she had raised enough money to pay for surgery to remove the glue. In a recent clip, she alleged that one person generously donated $3,000 to help her. She said: “You guys know it’s definitely been a journey with this Gorilla Glue. It’s been crazy, so thank you so much.” To try and keep people from applying Gorilla Glue on their hair, TikTok has put warnings on some of Reyes’s videos. Despite the warnings from both Tessica and Gorilla Glue, her viral story has inspired a dangerous ‘Gorilla Glue Challenge. Just recently, Len Martin, who is also originally from Louisiana, ended up in the emergency room after taking on the challenge. Martin used Gorilla Glue to stick a plastic cup on his face.
