A hairdresser has made a stunning admission that he uses Gorilla Glue on clients — but warns there is only one way to safely use it on hair.
Salon owner Eric Vaughn revealed in a now-viral TikTok video that he uses the industrial-strength adhesive to secure hair extensions.
“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,” he says as he demonstrates on a blond woman.
“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,” Vaughn says.
He then emphasizes: “But don’t put this on your actual hair.”
Vaughn’s video comes on the heels of the infamous ordeal suffered by Tessica Brown, the 40-year-old Louisiana woman whose hair had been stuck solid for a month after she used the glue as a hairspray substitute.
Brown’s hairy nightmare finally ended when Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng performed a $12,500 surgical procedure for free after hearing about her desperate pleas for help.
The hairdresser’s video has received more than 326,000 likes as of Friday morning and thousands of comments — several of them shocked.
Among the many commenters was one who wrote, “I’m sorry but no Gorilla Glue should be around my hair or head.”
Another critic questioned Vaughn’s ethics as a professional, despite his admonition not to use Gorilla Glue on actual hair.
“You really out there asking to get your license taken away?” they asked.
Meanwhile, another simply wrote: “Didn’t we learn the lesson with the other girl?”
