I, like most other people, spend lots of time scrolling on TikTok. As perfect as the algorithm can be, there are some types of TikToks that I like watching much more than others. Did you know there are even YouTube channels that make TikTok compilations of different types of TikToks? It gives vine energy for sure.

Here are some of my favorite types of TikToks to watch.

Restock Videos 

These are the most relaxing videos on TikTok. It’s so satisfying to see things being placed in their proper spots and filled to the right amounts.

Study Videos

When I’m feeling a little unmotivated and need to get work done, I watch study videos on TikTok. Seeing others being productive and getting their tasks accomplished makes me want to do my own assignments.

Cooking Videos

Since living on campus and being away from home, I rarely get to see my family cooking. It was something that I looked forward to every day because it was just a part of our daily routine. When I discovered cooking videos on TikTok, I was hooked. It’s fun to find new recipes and see the dishes that others make.

Shower Routines 

I’ve always been a fan of “routine” videos. Shower routines are my favorite because they always put me on to new hygiene products. Plus, they’re aesthetically pleasing so that’s always a bonus.

Amazon Must-haves

Amazon is a place that takes my check on a regular basis. There’s something for everyone there. Because Amazon has such a wide selection of items, it can be overwhelming to find things if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. Amazon finds always give me new items to buy that are usually affordable and make my life a little easier.

Hair Tutorials 

Having natural hair can sometimes be a challenge when it comes to finding hairstyles that I can actually do on myself. I enjoy watching others doing different hairstyles on themselves and others. I especially love when they walk the viewers through the process step by step.
