My hair has been disgusting because I was washing everyday and pretty much not caring what I was doing to it. Laziness at it's best. So I've finally decided to try shampoo free. Gotta say though, SO MUCH HARDER when you have short hair that can't be braided or pulled back and work somewhere where the boss would flip if you had a bandana on. Add that to bangs and I feel gross.
But I will win!
