  3. Awesome thanks! I was really confused and looking everywhere but I couldn't find where to go! =D I was unsure if I was just having a blonde moment or not.

  4. Heard from the FDA that it was going to happen and posted before figuring out how to register. I am more grey than blonde but same net effect.

    Thanks again.
