Tessica Brown Aka Gorilla Glue Girl Has Launched Her Own Hair-Care Line

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Rather than starting with a shampoo or even a moisturizing leave-in, Brown opted for a styling option and a scalp product that she felt would best fit her own hair needs at the moment. After her experience with the superglue, she needed a moisturizing oil that would help promote healthy hair and scalp and swears the Growth Stimulating Oil is the one.

Forever Hair Growth Stimulating Oil

At night, she massages a few drops of the oil onto her scalp and loves the tingling sensation it provides. It's infused with several different oils, like that of avocado, black cumin seed, and safflower. It also has a blend of essential oils like lavender and rosemary, the latter of which has been compared to minoxidil for hair loss in some clinical trials.

Forever Hair Forever Hold

Brown is obsessed with her ponytails (it's a go-to style for her), so she wanted a hairspray that gave her the staying power she wants without damage. 'With the spritz, I was able to get [my hair] all up and blow-dry it to make it stay in a ponytail', she says. The hold is strong, but it's not Gorilla Glue strong, she explains, so this won't make your style last past a wash.

These two products won't be the only ones in the line. Eventually, they will be joined by shampoos, detanglers, and even bonnets, Brown shares. But for now, be on the lookout for an edge control gel. There's no exact date yet, though, since she's trying to ensure that the product is perfect. 'We are still trying to get it to exactly what I need because I'm the person that [goes] inside of a hair store and complains about the edge control', she says. 'It's either too greasy or it turns your hair white.'

These products can be used by anyone, whether you're a fan of slick styles like Brown's or your natural hair texture.
