  • 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've Been Using Bigen For Years. 5 Star Rating
    I love that it has no ammonia and you don't have to use peroxide which makes the process of coloring more pleasant and my hair doesn't retain any strong chemical smell afterwards. The varying dark shades makes it easy for me to match my natural color, it covers all my stubborn greys well and the color lasts! The color is rich and my hair feels conditioned after. Previous to using Bigen I'd used any number of professional products but now I don't think I'll ever use anything else to color my hair.

  • Awesome Over And Over! 5 Star Rating
    I have using this product since I was in high school and I am now 36. It leaves your hair shiny, soft, silky and overall healthy looking. I strongly recommend this to anyone. But don't forget to do the allergy test as many people are highly alergic to it. I have only great things to say about it though!!

  • I Liked This Product/will Continue To Use It! 4 Star Rating
    I tried this product once before to tone down my hair color a few years ago. I liked the fact that it is a powder, and doesn't have peroxide. It's now time for me to color my hair down once more, and I will pick up this product tomorrow! I liked the fact that I can use this color as an alternative to using the wet permanent color, since the pigments are not the same.

  • Bigen On African Decent Hair 4 Star Rating
    I am writing in response to LISA in the United States regarding her experience with BIGEN hair dye.
    I am Black woman and have used Bigen for over 2 years. I have never experienced any hair loss or breakage from the product. Bigen is a very non agressive hair dye and I have never experienced any dryness or breakage from using the product. The only thing that I can think of is if you chemically process your hair and use bigen it can cause excess dryness which could possibly lead to breakage. Like with any other hair product, always test before using.

  • I Don't Understand... 4 Star Rating
    how some people don't do strand tests and blame the product. if you have an allergic reaction to it, don't use it. YOU WOULD KNOW IF YOU TESTED IT BEFORE YOU PUT ON YOUR HEAD. every dye has these instructions and different people will have different reactions. It's not the product its to user.

  • Love It - A Product That Actually Covers My Gray! 5 Star Rating
    I have tried other name brand products, going to salons to have my gray covered and never was I totally satisifed until now. Bigen is a wonderful product that I accidentally came across at my local Sally's product store a few months ago. I brought it home, my sister put it in my hair. I had no allergic reactions, no horrible odor, it was not harsh on my hair, and it covered all my gray. I agree with one of the reviewers and that one product is not good for everyone. We all have different reactions/allergies to products. I have a sister who is totally allergic to most hair products, not just dye. However, I used the same products she does and have no problem. Again, it's like someone else said, some of us are allergic to peanut butter and some of us, like me, are not. That doesn't make the product bad for everyone, it's makes the person allergic, bad for the product. Test the product as directed before using. Keep it real people!:)

  • Bigen Is Bad For Natural Africian American Hair!! 1 Star Rating
    I used this on the past and noticed it made my hair very dry.. but since I was wearing micro braids I thought that it was normal. I recently went natural and had excellent results right away. I highly reccommend it. My hair grew thick rich and strong right away I had about three inches growth in 4 weeks!! However I used Bigen two times before I really noticed the itching and thinning. The second time I used it was when I had terrible terrible hair loss!!!! I mistakenly thought that it was something else, I went back over the incident 100 times before I came across someone on utube who did a product report on Bigen. Do not use if you are Black..It is not for us. You may get lucky the first few times you use it..but it will damage your hair, I'm Blessed and mine is growing back in.

  • Wonderful Product 5 Star Rating
    I first started using Bigen about seven years ago and since then have never had any problem what so ever with it. I am partly, grey and have used the medium brown for root coverage. It is awesomely simple to use, just add water and a little goes a long way. Ive even added more water than recommended in instructions and it still did a great job.with just one application. This one bottle took care of both my own and my husbands hair and I have longish hair. So that's great as I am saving money and it is a reasonably priced product to begin with. I do find it rather odd that some people who are allergic to begin with have had a need to trash this particular product on this board. I say odd because, if allergic, they probably should not be using permanent hair products to begin with. It any event, they certainly should not then blame the product for their allergic reactions. I can sympathize but only to a point. Perhaps if the patch test were completed as per instructions there would have not been a problem for them. Comparably, and so far, this is a great product and without the ammonia. Thanks, Bigen
