Tessica Brown, the Louisiana woman who found herself in a pretty scary predicament this week.

A top Ghana-born plastic surgeon in the US has successfully removed Gorilla Glue from the scalp of a woman who sprayed it on her hair last month mistaking it for hairspray, TMZ videos show.

It took Dr Michael Obeng four hours to remove the glue from Tessica Brown’s head, the celebrity gossip site said.

The Harvard-trained, Beverly Hills-based doctor offered to perform the $12,500 (£9,000) procedure for free when he heard about Ms Brown’s plight after she shared a video on TikTok last week.

Nothing she had tried to remove the waterproof glue, which is usually used for fixing bathroom tiles, wood flooring and decking, had worked - and she had been forced to cut off her ponytail as it was pulling her scalp so much.

After the treatment, an emotional Ms Brown can be seen running her fingers through her hair.

Asked how she felt, she replied that she wished she hadn’t had to cut off her ponytail.
