Best firm hold hairsprays and gels that aren't Gorilla Glue

This week’s ‘main character of the internet’ is Gorilla Glue Girl.

Tessica Brown hit the headlines after applying Gorilla Glue spray to her hair instead of her usual brand.

She needed hospital treatment to dissolve the glue, and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers from people looking for updates on the painful situation.

Donations of thousands of dollars even poured in from people wishing Tessica well, after a video of her screaming in pain as dissolver was poured on her head was viewed millions of times.

Needless to say, you shouldn’t apply Gorilla Glue to any part of your body, as it’s an adhesive designed for materials like wood, plastic, and stone.

If you’re looking for a very firm hold, though, there are plenty of options that won’t land you in A&E.

We’ve rounded up the top hair gels and sprays that’ll keep your style in place without any pain and upset.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Freeze Spray

This was the brand that Tessica had run out of when she decided to use Gorilla Glue.

Not only is this spray great for setting styles, its strong hold can be used to stick down wig caps with no budging.

L’Oreal Elnett Supreme Hairspray

With its iconic scent, Elnett hairspray is a favourite of stylists worldwide.

The micro diffuser nozzle distributes it evenly to finish off your style, making it easy to brush out afterwards. This one is great for those who want a firm hold but with a natural look.

Cantu Nature Hair Extra Hold Gel
