  • Features
  • Directions

    1. Assemble everything you need: the contents of the Bigen pack, plastic or glass bowl or cup and a non-metal stirrer, plastic or rubber gloves, cape or used towel, brush, cold cream.
    2. Do not pre-shampoo your hair unless it is very oily or treated with metallic color such as hair color spray or henna compound or any other material that might interfere with Bigen coloring. Cover the upper part of your body with the towel or cape. Apply a thin coating of cold cream along the hairline to guard against any traces of tint around the hairline.
    3. Pour Bigen Permanent Powder Hair Color into the plastic or glass cup or bowl. Add tap water at room temperature (DO NOT use hot water) in the following proportion to make a paste: - 1 bottle Bigen Powder, 5 Bigen measuring cups of water (2 fl oz) - 1 bottle Bigen Powder, 2 Bigen measuring cups of water (1 fl oz) - 1 bottle Bigen Powder, 1 Bigen measuring cups of water (1 fl oz)
    4. Then quickly apply Bigen Hair Color mixture to the dry or towel dry hair with a brush. If you are partially gray haired, start application where the hair is most gray, making sure every hair strand is thoroughly covered. After application is complete, begin timing. It usually takes 20-30 minutes for the hair color to develop and cover gray. (DO NOT use dryer or cap.)
    5. Your color results depend on your current color or hair conditions. After 10 minutes, check your color by wiping a strand with cotton every few minutes until the desired color is achieved. Failure to perform a strand test may result in darker shade than expected.
    6. Now rinse Bigen thoroughly from the hair with warm water. Then wash the hair with mild shampoo until the water runs completely clear and free of color.
    7. Low pH conditioner is recommended for satisfactory results.

    I used this product and after 3 months I am still having allergic reactions to it. My face was so swollen that I wasnt recongizable, my skin is still irritated after almost three months. I have lost most of my hair, due to using this product.

  • Discontinued Use After Many Years 2 Star Rating
    I loved Bigen hair color but when my gray became more pronounced and resistant I had to stop using it. (I tried going lighter and mixing colors and nothing helped) I had one other problem after using it for a long period of time; I would get small bumps on my scalp that itched. I asked several beauticians and clerks what the ingredients were, and nobody could respond. I would like to see the ingredients listed.I am only giving it a two-star rating because of my problem with resistant gray.

  • Still Using After 15 Years 5 Star Rating
    I have not found another product that not only looks natural but covers gray hair so well. I mix light chestnut and medium chestnut( together and it keeps the color from looking black. The result is (46&47)a dark brown. I also add over these two colors the Expressive color, fine wine and the result is a dark brown with mahogany higlites. My hairstylist really likes the color,enough said.

  • Not Good 1 Star Rating
    This hair color has been by farthest the worst hair color i have tried. I have to say im so disapointed at the results and not only that the color was deceiving as to what the box said but it damaged and left my hair extremly dry .Unless you want to use this awful product i would advice you to look closely at what you buy.i would truly give it a half of star

  • Finally A Color That Works 5 Star Rating
    I have gray mainly around my face. All the color products that I have used just look so fake...one color. I had just about given up when I saw Bigen at Wal-Mart. I applied Bigen (a shade lighter than my natural hair color) just on the gray using a small brush and a fine toothed comb. Twenty minutes later, it looks so natural and didnt dry my hair out. I have so many allergies that I expected the patch test to break me out. It was wonderful to find a product that works for me. I really like the fact that you mix up only the amount you need.

  • By Far The Best Alternative To Regular Dye Hair 5 Star Rating
    This product is amazing, it is by far the best alternative to dye hair. I have resistant gray hairs and Bigen has lasted up to 4 weeks, even though I wash my hair daily. I fully recommend it to anyone who wants best quality for the lowest price.

  • Important Tip From Biba,boston, Uk 5 Star Rating
    I rate Bigen as excellent but there is no warning on the packet that it contains PPD. PPD is present in all dark permanet colours. Most people who are allergic to hair dyes are allergic to that chemical.I had a severe irration -- it is not chemical free and not pure veg. dye as consumers are led to believe.I would recommend a patch test to be sure

  • Fantastic Stuff, But Don't Leave It On Too Long 5 Star Rating
    ive been using Bigen hair color, both the dark auburn & light chestnut, for the past five or so years. the only drawback is that the color becomes very intense & somewhat darker if left on the hair for more than 15-20 minutes. theres no nasty smell & my hair is incredibly soft & shiny after coloring. ive got a fair amount of gray hair & this product covers it completely.
