Just four months after her unfortunate Gorilla Glue incident took the Internet by storm, Tessica Brown aka “Gorilla Glue Girl” has now managed to turn her sticky situation into a full-blown haircare business.
Brown took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a post announcing her new hair line, “Forever Hair,” as well as to show off her recent hair growth, which she credits to her a growth-stimulating oil that she developed.
“As y’all already know, about four months ago I ran out of hairspray and ended up using Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad idea,” said Brown, in the video. “As a result of that, I ended up losing my hair and having scalp damage. But since then I have been working with professionals to create and formulate a hair growth oil. I need this oil to, one, heal my scalp. I needed to grow my hair back, I needed to stimulate my hair follicles, and on top of that I needed everything to be all natural, and in this oil, it has just a state.”
The oil ($18), which promises to “reduce excessive shedding” and increase “blood flow to follicles promoting growth”, according to the website, is one of two products currently available for purchase. The other is a strong hold hair spritz ($14), called “Forever Hair” that offers a “firm, flake free hold with lasting shine.” The brand has also teased that a sleek edge control ($13) made with aloe vera and black castor oil is coming soon to the website.
While many on social media have been quick to write off her latest business venture as a joke, Brown speaks highly of the effectiveness of her products.
“Look at the results, look at my hair. My scalp feels amazing, my hair is already growing back,” she said. “ I’m telling you, this oil has been a lifesaver.”
