L’Oreal recently ran a TV ad campaign in the UK for its new hair care product “INOA”, suggesting that its funkily-named coloration product is altogether better than any existing system.

Frustrated singers and dancers here is something for you! (Yeah, this one’s for me, too.) Have you ever felt like pulling your hair out by the roots due to the lack of music while you’re doing your business in the shower? Well, be frustrated no more with the Juke Tower from TokyoFlash.
