Gorilla Glue girl Tessica Brown’s GoFundMe page topped more than $20,000 in donations Thursday after doctors finally removed the sticky stuff through surgery.

The 40-year-old Louisiana woman — whose hair had been stuck solid for a month after she used the superglue as a hairspray substitute — started the fundraiser on Monday.

She raised more than $13,000 in just one day — and by Thursday afternoon, that number surged to $20,577.

The fundraiser — started by Brown and a relative and using a photo from her visit to the emergency room — did not detail what she’d use the cash for.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Michael Obeng offered to perform Brown’s surgery — a $12,500 procedure — for free after hearing about the hair-raising ordeal.

“How’s it feel like to feel your hair like that again?” someone can be heard asking Brown after the four-hour procedure, in footage posted by TMZ.
