The video starts with TikToker Jessica Haizman (@jessicahaizman) telling her viewers of some basic hairbrush hygiene, advising them that simply pulling out the hair is not enough: “Realistically, you’re supposed to clean your hairbrushes once every two weeks.”
She then proceeds to put her own hairbrushes in a sink filled with water to give them a bath.
Ms Haizman then adds a mixture of baking soda and shampoo, saying: “I’m all about using products that aren’t harmful for your skin.”
She becomes horrified when the water starts turning a muddy brown colour almost instantly after submerging the hairbrushes into the sink.
The TikToker seemed embarrassed at the state of the hairbrushes, saying: “I don’t dye my hair or use much product.”
After taking the hairbrushes out of the water, Ms Haizman rinses them thoroughly and lets them airdry on a towel.
The TikTok has since been viewed over 8.2m times since its upload, with over 1.4 million users liking the video.
TikTokers have been sounding off in the comments with their thoughts about the simple cleaning hack.
One asked: “Wouldn’t the water get stuck inside of it?”
