After “Gorilla Glue girl,” Tessica Brown, another social media user has reportedly been to the hospital after Gorilla Glue became stuck in her hair.
Avani Reyes, who has almost half a million followers on social media platform TikTok, said that the super-strong glue had been “accidentally applied” to her hair.
She posted a series of videos saying that she did not intend to put it in her hair but now needed to visit the hospital to have it removed.
Reyes complained that her scalp was “burning” despite attempts to wash it — following in the footsteps of the original viral Gorilla Glue video from Tessica Brown, who failed to remove the adhesive after 15 washes.
However, many social media users accused Reyes of copying Tessica Brown with the intention of going viral online, with one person asking whether she was mocking “the other person that did this.”
Another unimpressed TikTok user commented to brutally tell Avani Reyes they hoped the glue “never comes out” of her hair.
After supposedly visiting the hospital, Reyes took to TikTok once again to give her followers an update, saying that the hospital “did nothing,” prompting some people to accuse her of wasting hospital time.
Olive oil, coconut oil, and tea tree oil are just some of the suggestions which were shared in an attempt to offer advice on how to remove the sticky product.
Reyes has claimed that she has begun raising funds to travel to California for a $12,500 procedure to remove the glue.
Avani Reyes confessed: “I don’t know what to do. This was an accident. I didn’t mean to put Gorilla Glue in my hair. I need to go to the hospital so they can remove this Gorilla Glue. I have no idea what to do. I tried washing it; it doesn’t come off.”
She added: “I just got out of the hospital, and they did nothing for me. Look at my hair. I used coconut oil for like a half an hour, and then I just washed my hair, and there is still Gorilla Glue in my head. Guess I gotta go bald.”
Tessica Brown received the treatment for free from Dr. Michael Obeng after raising almost $24,000 and traveling to Beverly Hills, later saying she would donate most of the money to charity.
And now, Reyes has said she already has $3,000 of her target, which she intends to use for the same cosmetic procedure.
