Comedian Loni Love says she’s giving a custom-made wig to the Louisiana woman who was hospitalized last week for using Gorilla Glue to style her hair, according to a report.
The 49-year-old funny lady said she “empathizes” with Tessica Brown, whose hair became stuck solid after using the industrial-strength adhesive as a makeshift hair product, according to NBC LX.
“We know as black women how hard it is, our hair is so important,” Love said in a clip that aired Friday. “I’m one of the few black women — me and I think Whoopi Goldberg — [who] actually wear our hair in braids or locks because traditionally it has been known to be unprofessional. But the times are changing,” she said. “So I totally have empathy for Tessica and I want to help.”
Love, who co-hosts the talk show “The Real,” noted that Brown had the glue removed by a plastic surgeon — and may be in need of a good wig.
“I’m offering to gift her a wig. I have a wonderful wig maker, who will make a wig of her styling,” she said.
Brown became a viral sensation earlier this month after she posted a TikTok video explaining that her hair had been stuck in place for a month — a confession that resonated with some women of color.
“Look: My hair, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move,” she says in one clip, adding that her scalp burns with pain.
A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon then volunteered to help her unstick her hair in a four-hour procedure this week.
Footage of Brown after the surgery shows her running her fingers through her hair for the first time in more than a month.
