The Top Story
Tessica Brown, the woman who went viral after putting Gorilla Glue in her hair instead of hairspray, says she’ll give $20,000 she raised through a GoFundMe page to a foundation run by the surgeon who saved her hair.
Louisiana resident Brown went viral in early February after she posted videos on her Instagram and Twitter, saying her hair had been stuck in place for more than a month because she’d used Gorilla Glue as a substitute for hairspray.
After garnering huge attention on the internet, LA-based surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng offered to try to fix Brown’s hair for free. Earlier this week, TMZ posted video footage of Obeng operating on Brown’s hair.
Videos from after the procedure showed Brown was also able to retain some of her hair in the process. She could also be seen running her fingers through it and feeling her scalp, as Insider’s Palmer Haasch reported.
Now, Brown appears to want to pay Obeng back by making a sizeable donation to a foundation he runs.
