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.

  • Great Dye 5 Star Rating
    i have thin/fine indian hair that was chemically treated w/ highlights. i've used this about 5-10 times and i've never had an allergic reaction (note that i am allergic to some fruits/pollens) but my scalp was fine. my hair is shiny, scalp feels actually cleaner, the color covers grey easily and quickly and it doesnt fade when using hot styling tools like most other dyes. usually when i try to dye over my highlights the dark color fades quickly and the highlights start showing again. i love this product b/c this does not happen!
    i noticed less hair loss than when i use other drugstore dyes (and trust me i've used them all) this stuff is great, it's done in 15 minutes, theres no horrible smell that makes you want to pass out like other dyes. i highly recommend but after reading reviews please do a patch test as you may be allergic to products contained in the powder.

    (PS - dark brown comes out as a very dark black so if looking for a black thats a little more natural i would actually go with the dark brown shade)

  • Agree With The Positive Reviews 4 Star Rating
    I used this product for the first time last night and had a positive experience.

    I like that it's fast and easy. I only used it to color grays and I used a brush to apply, careful to not work into the scalp. I have dark drown hair and the new color is very rich - just a tad darker than my natural color. The length of my hair is slightly lighter brown but it must not be that noticeable b/c no one has remarked on it.

    I can see why it would be too dark for some people. Luckily, I only left it on for 20 minutes. Next time, I may even try 15 to see if it's a shade lighter.

    I completely agree with the review that says it takes some experimenting, but every color/ manufacturer does.

  • Easy Low Maintenance Color 4 Star Rating
    I understand that some people have terrible allergic reactions to this product, so first test! I have fine, medium brown hair and I have had a very hard time to cover my grays with regular hair dyes, either self applied or done by the hair dressers. Also, because my hair is very fine, I have to wash it every other day and the color is usually faded long before the supposed 4-6 weeks are over, after about 10 days. With Bigen, I can cover the grays well, it is even, and the color stays forever. The only difficulty is not to get it too dark. So I started to only do the roots, and only for 20 min. or less, which seems to work. It is still darker than I would like it to be, but so hassle free that I still prefer it. It takes some experimenting, but from my experience, every color does.

  • Great Product!! 4 Star Rating
    I use this product, and I purchase it at Walmart.
    My hair color is black, it's a mixed texture, my mom is
    white my dad is black, I have that kind of long healthy, thick hair
    that is easy to work with, and you can even stretch your ideas,
    color and perm and style all in the same day.
    I bought this product because because I am 51 and had a hair
    full of gray, I had tried so many products, but none did any
    thing with the gray.

    I used it this way I wash my hair until I feel no oils, making it squeak
    clean. I wait a full 24 hours, then I apply the dye to my hair, I wait
    30 minutes, but if my scalp starts tingling, I was the dye out, if not
    I wait 45 minutes.

    My results were amazing, and I liked it, because I looked 10 years
    Younger!!

    I wouldn't recommend it putting this or no other product, in your hair,
    if your hair is already unhealthy, I think its a great product for the
    black race, as well as the mixed race. I also hear it works well with
    chinese people.

    ADVICE...before putting anything in your hair, take a small section
    of your hair and test the product. I also don't reccommend this product
    for chemically treated hair.
    and mixed races

  • Always Go Back To Bigen 5 Star Rating
    Have tried many hair color products over the years and I always go back to Bigen. I love that I only need to mix what is needed for touch up and it always covers the gray. You do have to be careful to not leave it on too long as it can turn your hair black. It doesn't fade out or lift hair color.

  • Thought I Hit It On The Mark 3 Star Rating
    I have fine dark brown hair with about 30% grey I touch up my hair frequently as I work in show business and they see everything! This color has been much easier on my hair and scalp than peroxide or ammonia. I have been using it for abou 8 months. Til now my hair has been much shinier and the color much truer. Recently my scalp has become sensitive to Bigen and my hair has been shedding. Could be that while it was fine at first I've developed a sensitivity to the product. Will try scalp consitioning treatment before I give up on this.

  • Biggest Mistake Of My Life 1 Star Rating
    At first I thought this was the best hair dye I ever ran across. I've always found it hard to find a black hair color that covered my grey. I used this product almost 2 months ago and up until 3 weeks ago I noticed my hair coming out more than it should. I have white spots in my head and there is no hair in those spots. I wish I could figure out how to stop my hair from coming out. I've already cut it but I'd rather not cut anymore.

  • 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.
