After a woman who used Gorilla Glue as a hairspray had her hair stuck in the same style for a month, another confessed to using the product to secure extensions.
Salon owner Eric Vaughn shared a now viral TikTok video, showing himself attaching a blonde sew-in hairpiece to a model’s hair, using the industrial strength glue.
“So I’ve been using Gorilla Glue on people’s hair for years, but this is the only way that you should ever use it — at the end of a sew-in,” Vaughn said as he demonstrates his way of using it.
“I’ll take my threads and knot them together, take a tiny little dot of Gorilla Glue, blow dry and cut that and that knot is going nowhere.”
He strongly emphasized on his video that it is not recommended to use the glue on an actual hair.
“I wanted to show that in a professional setting Gorilla Glue is appropriately used on hair extensions. In the hands of a professional can be used appropriately to ensure that no knot comes unraveled,” Vaughn said in an interview.
“It honestly came about as I was doing an extension service in the salon and went to pick up my gorilla glue to glue my knot and immediately thought oh wait this will be the perfect moment to educate on using this tool correctly.”
Vaughn’s video comes after the infamous ordeal suffered by Tessica Brown, the 40-year-old Louisiana woman whose hair had been stuck solid for a month after using the glue to keep her hair in place.
Brown underwent a successful removal procedure on February 12.
With the help of Beverly Hill-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng, she was able to retain some of her hair.
In an exclusive video, Brown demonstrated how she could run her fingers through her hair, as well as feeling her scalp.
