Holiday Gift Guide - Bigen Hair Color



I had been wanting to get my hair dyed for quite a while, but the cost has been holding me back for sometime. I have always thought that doing it myself would be complicated, so have never tried but as somebody who is willing to try anything once I couldn't turn the chance to try out some of Bigen's ammonia free hair color. I picked out two colors; Deep Burgundy and Dark Auburn and received them within just a few days.

About:
Bigen Permanent Hair Color is ideal for those looking for long lasting 100% gray coverage or to enhance their natural hair color. Bigen permanent hair color is ammonia free and requires no hydrogen peroxide. The unique powder formula is activated by water to naturally open the hair’s cuticle to deposit rich, natural color into even the most stubborn gray hair. This deposit only color is the gentle choice and has been proven for over thirty years.
At first I was a little confused. After mixing the powder dye with water, the directions say to apply onto dry hair with a brush yet there is no brush or comb included with the package. Other brands that I have seen my Mom use included a comb for application yet this one only included the measuring tray, a pair of plastic gloves, and the powder. I ended up using my fingers to glop the mixture (which had a runny jam type consistency) into my hair. I then used a wide tooth comb to even it out.

I had originally planned to use the Dark Auburn for my entire head, with the Deep Burgundy as highlights. My daughter got a hold of the packages and when I put the bottles back into the boxes I ended up mixing them up - as in I ended up using the Deep Burgundy on my entire head. It turned out to be a good thing as I was happy that the color resulted in an almost purple almost black shade. Not a bright purple by any means and it really needs just the right lighting to look purple, but I like it! I haven't used the Dark Auburn yet, but will once my hair is ready for more color.

This dye would be perfect for anyone who is sensitive to the harsh odors that many dyes have, and was very easy to use even for a first timer. If you know someone who is thinking about getting their hair done, or if you want to give yourself a new look for the Holidays Bigen ammonia and hydrogen-peroxide free hair color would make a great inexpensive gift!
