Summer is back, school is out and colour is in! Start the season with a bang as Pioneer Manufacturing Distribution Company Limited, distributors of L'Oréal and Garnier products presents you with the ultimate summer experience in shades of shimmering and shining colour.

Their forum entitled 'Its All About Colour' spoke about the various hair-colour brands, the correct hair-colour application processes and how to care for coloured and damaged hair.

The need for healthy, beautiful hair is every woman's dream, and we treat our hair with care because no one wants to hear their hairdresser say; 'your hair is damaged', 'your ends are split' or 'we may have to cut'.

With the existence of different hair textures and types, there is a brand hair colour for every woman's needs. During PMD's forum it was pointed out that for persons of Chinese, Indian or mixed ethnicity they should use Garnier's Olia Permanent Colour instead of the Feria Brand because of the hair texture. For any woman not liking her grays, she should use L'Oréal's Excellence Creme because it was made for that purpose.


The Multi-Faceted Shimmering Color of Feria Brand, although not ammonia free, delivers intensified highlights to the hair, which provides bold, head-turning shades. This product, which contains its revolutionary Power Shimmer Conditioner, hydrates and conditions the hair weeks after colouring to prevent breakage.

With this Caribbean weather, how often we visit the beach and our gym routines makes it very difficult to maintain good-looking hair. But, are you aware that what you wash your hair with can make a difference? The forum which placed importance on hair care noted the variety of shampoos and conditioners by Garnier - from preventing fading to dry, distressed damaged hair with different ingredients for the nutrients your hair lacks.
