ST. BERNARD PARISH, LA. (THECOUNT) — Violet, Louisiana woman, Tessica, has gone viral for all the wrong reasons after she used a powerful adhesive on her hair instead of traditional hairspray.

In the video, posted to TikTok, Tessica, explains that her hair has been plastered to her head and her braided ponytail fixed in the same style for about a month.


In an attempt to remove the glue from her hair, Tessica said she washed the hair 15 times. She also saturated her hair in coconut oil to try to loosen it up, but said nothing worked, according to 11Alive.

Saturday, Tessica said she was seeking help at St. Bernard Parish Hospital’s emergency room after commenting that her head was beginning to hurt.

In another update, followers saw another person helping her remove the glue with sterile water and nail polish remover pads she received from the hospital.

It’s unclear if medical personal were able to loosen the hair.
