Turn shampoo bar into liquid shampoo.

Inspired by this article I decided to turn my shampoo into liquid for easier application. So far it's worked really well, I've been using it for a month or two now. I'm really excited about it because other liquid shampoos that I tried have never worked as well as CV's Ayurvedic Herb shampoo bars.

- bring water (alone) to a boil
- add the shampoo shreds while the water is on the stove

- pour mixture into a clean and empty shampoo bottle
- use as regular shampoo, then follow up with an acidic rinse (I use Apple Cider Vinegar, one tea spoon of vinegar to one 8 oz cup of water)
