Bigen Permanent Powder Hair Color is the first permanent hair color that is in powder form. It is perfect for those looking for 100% gray coverage, with long lasting results. This unique powder formula is activated by water. It deposits rich color that even the most stubborn of gray hair cannot resist. There is no ammonia or hydrogen peroxide in the formula, so it is very gentle and gives optimum shine and condition. It comes in 11 shades, from rich brown, to chestnut and dark auburn. It only comes in darker shades because it does not require peroxide or ammonia.
I tried color 37, Dark Auburn. The directions are simple and easy to understand. The kit comes with the hair color, a well for mixing and gloves. To use you will need a non-metallic bowl and a brush. Apply Bigen Permanent Powder Hair Color on dry hair. Development time depends on if you are doing root touch up or if you are doing the full head of hair for the first time. It also depends on if you are doing chemically treated hair or not. I was doing root touch up on chemically treated hair, so my time was 30 minutes on my roots and 15 minutes on the rest of my hair to kind of refresh the color. I also needed to use 2 boxes of the product because I have long, thick hair. The color is easy to apply. You just mix with water to activate the powder.
Rinse with water to get the color out of the hair, make sure to rinse until the water runs clear and shampoo well. Then use a conditioner to condition the hair. Unlike other permanent hair color products, this one does not make hair too damaged. I feel I needed to use conditioner after because my hair is already damaged.
After rinsing and styling, my hair did come out to a rich dark auburn shade. Using the Bigen Permanent Powder Hair Color was very easy and I liked that it did not damage my hair as much. My only issue is that you need to go to the beauty supply store and make sure you get a non-metallic bowl and brush to have on hand for this, I luckily already had these items. Also, if you are not used to using a brush to do your hair, it is a little bit harder than using a squeeze bottle for coloring. Otherwise, this type of hair color is nice and I would use it again. I do prefer a lighter red color though. I loved how soft my hair was after using this. It really left my hair in great condition. A big plus!
