Using the wrong Gorilla... aka she really stiffed herself!

In certain circles women use unusual hair products to hold their locks in shape until shampooed out. One very popular product is Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray.

When a TikTok user ran out of her favorite spray, she reverted to the second most popular Gorilla Snot, a fixing gel... however she missed a small detail. Instead of Gorilla Snot, she accidentally (in the wrong department) picked up a bottle of Gorilla Spray Adhesive.

Spray adhesive? Yeah, a clear multi-purpose moisture resistant adhesive that forms a permanent bond.

The woman went on TikTok telling her story:
“When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little Got2B Glued Spray. You know, just to keep it in place. Well I didn’t have anymore Got2B Glued Spray so I used this. Gorilla Glue Spray. Bad, bad, bad idea. Y’all look, my hair. It don’t move. Do you hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move. I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it don’t move.”

Fast Forward... a month later, the people at Gorilla Glue were made aware of the woman's dilemma and offered advice to soften the product using a mixture of diluted rubbing alcohol.

A month later??

Her hair hasn't grown in a month?

I'd have visible growth in a few days, a good half inch in a month.

Skin cells would shed and lift an adhesive layer.

I've used superglue for it's original purpose - filling in and gluing together small wounds. That has to be reapplied every 24-48 hours.
rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing now that was a good laugh.

Jac made some good points. The hair will grow out then she can cut it.

Hey Jac, I was trying to copy and paste, but click on you profile (no harm) wave
Only blokes appear on my 'who's viewed me', LaFonda.

Even if you had, I would have pleased to see you.
I'm not 100% convinced the story is true.
Could someone actually ignore the product labeling/warning?
The video was made shortly after the 'glue-down' and not a month later.
She starts with a greeting and then says her hair 'has been like this for a month now'.

I've watched it three times and I don't think I'm mishearing.

When information doesn't make sense we subconsciously rationalise the data - we know intuitively that hair and skin will shed and grow over that time period, so we change the time period in our minds.

It's a technique utilised in advertising and political propaganda.
"My hair has been like this for about a mont now"

jac... right, but there are bare spots.
If it's really a month later I'm questioning why she hasn't been to a salon for help.
As far as the length, she just has slow growth.

I didn't see any instructions for cleanup.
Rubbing alcohol isn't listed as a solvent.
Not sure if acetone melts hair, but that should be on her list of chemicals to try!
