As part of the nationwide educational programme six students from Onslow College have launched their own business to offer natural hair dye as an alternative to conventional products. Year 13 students Katie Foster, Haley Salz, Lockie McLaren, Nathan Ulaula, Iain Egginson and Wan Rizqi founded Veggie-Dye to experiment how to colour hair with various natural ingredients. “We tried using different vegetables, beet root for example. But we had some troubles with the veggie base – it was more dying the scalp than the hair,” Iain said. “So instead we used lemon

juice in combination with heat, and that worked,” Katie added. Their plan now is to develop a lemon hair wash that gradually lightens the hair. Katie had been the guinea pig for most of their trials. “I once used a chemical hair dye and it was awful. My hair was brittle and broke. The chemicals they use are way too harsh,” Katie explained.

Countdown Karori shines with new splendor Countdown Karori celebrated its official re-launch after a $3million refurbishment of this store, which includes a new bakery, deli and seafood area, and an expanded fresh produce area now. “We started the refurbishment in April and renewed every single department,” Krystal Barriball, Karori store manager, said on the re-opening day, August 14. “We are celebrating for our customers today.” Krystal said as one of Wellington’s largest suburbs Karori had relatively small supermarkets. “We couldn’t make our walls bigger, so we re-designed the store layout and managed to get in over

project coordinator, said. YES has been running for 36 years – 456 Wellington students joined the programme this year. “It’s about taking students out of the class room and into a real world situation,” Hanna said. Veggie-Dye wants to bring out their product later this month. Head of finance, Nathan, said the group was keen to get investors on board if Veggie-Dye was successful. “It feels satisfying that we have set up our own business,” Katie said. “And it’s a lot of fun,” Nathan added.  For more information visit facebook.com/VeggieDye or youngenterprise.org.nz.

100 new grocery lines. “We expanded our premium products and our organic food selection – from feedback from customers we heard that they wanted a larger health food range,” Krystal explained. Countdown is the first Karori supermarket to have self-check-out operators. Kyle Wadsworth, refurbishment project manager, said that he thoroughly enjoyed his job over the past few months and that he was very satisfied with the brighter and fresher look of the store. As part of the celebrations, Countdown made a $500 food donation to the Salvation Army.
