Bucket Bangs + the George McFly

 We haven't gotten our hair cut professionally in over a year, haha. I cut our hair now, and I don't think we'll ever go back. It's saved us a lot of money, and it's kinda liberating to chop your own hair. Today I gave myself bucket bangs, and after watching the Back to the Future trilogy this morning, I gave Franklin a George McFly haircut. I think it looks super cute on him! :)
I still don't know what the heck I'm doing when I cut our hair, haha. I just sort of jump in, and hope for the best. The first few times were not so great, but I get a little better every time, thankfully. Also, guess what? I stopped using shampoo about two weeks ago, and I love it. I use baking soda to wash my hair, and apple cider vinegar to condition it. It never looks oily, and I get to feel awesome about saving money + using less chemicals on my body. Stickin' it to the man! or something.

  2. Ahhhh I love you. I need to stop using shampoo too- even the "natural" stuff is full of stuff that weighs down my hair. I have been cutting my own hair in between "hair visits" I think the last one I had was in November and OMG it saves SO much money!!! A while back when I use to have a half blonde half black hairstyle I spent like $100 a pop to get it retouched!! lol. Anyway, you look so adorable with your new bangs, and I love what you did with Franklin's hair too. You are just too cute!

    1. aww, thank you Alyssa!! :) I got a lot of great tips on the whole no-shampoo thing on howtohairgirl.com, under the "shamPHree" section. So helpful!! You can condition with apple cider vinegar & add different essential oils to make your hair smell like SOMETHING, haha. I like lavender, myself. I tried eucalyptus, but then I smelled like vick's vapo rub, haha! if you give it a try, let me know how it goes!! :)
