I've been meaning to try out Plasti Dip for a few years now, I've just never had the perfect opportunity to go out and buy some for a specific use.

I was cleaning out my bathroom when I ran into my old hair brush. I gave it a swipe through my hair and... *OUCH MY SCALP!*. Turns out all the little rubber/plastic tips on the end of the bristles had fallen off. 

Seeing as how this brush has some sentimental value, I felt I would try to fix it up with some Plasti Dip, and put it back into use.

Step 1: Get Supplies

You're going to need some supplies in order to fix up the brush:

-Plasti Dip (6-7 Dollars at Home Depot)

-Hair Brush (Clean)

-Toothpicks (Testing Purposes)

-Work Area (I chose a paper plate)

-Spoon or other Dispensing Device (Keep in mind you wont be using this again, unless you want it coated in rubber)

Neat idea, the plastic tips that come on hairbrushes fall way too easily.
Thanks!! I have long hair and it's naturally curly so you can imagine that finding a brush that I really like is hard. And then the tips start to come off and I have to toss it. Problem solved thanks :)
