PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (January 3, 1999 – Post-Courier)---The Consumer Affairs Council (CAC) has issued a strong warning to users of hair-products to be careful with the chemicals they use in their hair.

The warning came after a customer registered complaints that a certain hair and beauty salon had sold her a hair dye which she claimed made her hair peel off.

The council has since acted on behalf of the woman and asked for a refund of the money that she spent on the hair product.

The executive director of CAC, Dan Kakaraya, has called on customers to be especially careful when doing their shopping at this time of the year, as businesses often tend to take advantage of customers' holiday shopping sprees.

Mr. Kakaraya has extended his call to consumers, asking them to help CAC report any discrepancies they find in the products they are using.

"The Consumer Affairs Council is here to help you. However, due to our financial constraints, we cannot be everywhere for everybody," he said.

"What you can do to help the council is to report what you think is wrong with the product and we can take it on from there," he said.

He has also warned shops who take advantage of the Value Added Tax to increase their prices to be reasonable before CAC catches them.
