    Thank you for sharing this information! I appreciate the level-headed responses among the fear-mongering. Not everyone reads articles or even understands them every time, so thank you for quelling most fears about hair dye. I agree with Valerie regarding the marketing surrounding marijuana-inspired packaging and names for beauty products. Have you seen the Melt Cosmetics’ Smoke Sessions palette? Seems harmless, but I understand how this almost romanticizes recreational drug use, especially for underage consumers who do not fully understand the possible repercussions of using controlled substances.
