When you finally get that just-right hairstyle, you want to have it actually stay in place. Well, one woman turned to Gorilla Glue spray for help—and now, she’s dealing with the fallout.

Tessica Brown explains in a TikTok video that’s gone viral that her hair is stuck in a low braided pony after she put Gorilla Glue spray in it a few weeks ago in a pinch. "Stiff where????? Ma hair 🤬🤬," she captioned the video.

"My hair has been like this for about a month now," Brown says in the video. "It’s not by choice. Nooo."

Brown explains that, when she’s doing her hair, she likes to finish it off with a certain hairspray, Got2b Glued Freeze Spray. She ran out one day and decided to try spraying Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive on her hair instead to hold it in place. That didn’t go well.

"Bad, bad, bad idea," she says. "Y’all, look. My hair…it don’t move. I've washed my hair 15 times, and it don't move."

She then shared some advice: "If you ever, ever run out of Got2b Glued Freeze Spray, don’t ever, ever use this unless you want your hair to be like that forever."

After her first video went viral, Brown followed it up with another TikTok of herself trying to wash the Gorilla Glue out of her hair with shampoo, using her nails and everything. No luck.

"Watch…you wipe it off and nothing happens," she says. "Like, this is the life that I’m living at this point. This is the life, I guess, that I have to live."

People offered up plenty of suggestions in the comments on how to try to fix the situation, including a TikTok user posing as Gorilla Glue itself. The brand later commented on Twitter that the "Gorilla Glue official" TikTok account was fake. "This is not our account. Please do not follow their advice," the company tweeted.

Still, Brown shared another TikTok video thanking people for their support and ideas to try to help her get rid of her "forever ponytail."

She ended with this: "By the way, if you see me walking around with a headscarf on my head, just mind your own business."
