A Bully Poured Super Glue Into Her Hair — So She Did This

She suffered first-degree burns in the cowardly attack.

15-year-old Hannah Combs had just started her freshman year at Texas' Harker Heights High School and was talking to some friends when someone did something incredibly vicious. 

A bully walked up behind her and poured super glue directly onto her hair and scalp.

"It instantly started burning," Hannah told the Killeen Daily Herald. "It felt like my head was on fire. It was horrible." Her father, Christian Grimmer, took her to the doctor for medical treatment.

Hannah suffered painful first-degree burns and was forced to shave part of her head.

"I realized I lost my favorite thing about me. I loved my hair," Hannah told The Herald. "My hair was the only thing I liked about myself, honestly. I lost it for no reason."

The bully only received an in-school suspension as punishment. That's when Hannah and her family decided that they'd had enough.

The in-school suspension meant that upon returning to school the next day, Hannah would still see the bully. 

Frustrated by interactions with school officials, Hannah's mother, Jessica Grimmer, started a Facebook page called Justice for Hannah that detailed her daughter's ordeal. Hannah's story went viral, getting attention in media outlets like Teen Vogue and making its way around the world.

"The response has been just unbelievable," Jessica Grimmer told The Herald. "There are responses from South Africa. It's everywhere. The outpour(ing) is beautifully overwhelming."

A hairstylist in Hannah's hometown of Harker Heights volunteered to help fix her hair.

Today I got to do something I'm proud of. I fixed a young girls hair who had something traumatic happen to her at school. Her hair had to be shaved on one side, so I made the best of a bad situation.
