It all started when Tessica Brown ran out of hairspray and gel, then sprayed her hair with Gorilla Glue with the hopes she could wash it out later.

After trying for a month, Brown became desperate with rigid immovable locks but a plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills would come to the Louisiana woman's rescue.

Dr. Michael Obeng, ironically started his career here in Youngstown at St Elizabeth's.

A staff member at his office saw the story and asked if it was possible to help her.

Brown's accident took her to a Lousiana emergency room that initially burned her scalp but didn't help.

So, after some careful research, consulting with chemists from his old alma mater, Dr. Obeng came up with a non-toxic solution of medical grade adhesive remover, aloe vera, olive oil, and a bit of acetone.

Dr. Obeng provided his services free of charge.

A four-hour procedure that left Brown's scalp glue-free and saved her hair.

Dr. Obeng says he's just happy he was able to help.
