Permanent dye?

I tried the semi dye, color only lasted 2 weeks. So is this a permanent dye? How long does it last?

Really does cover grey

I used this brand for years even before I started to go grey. It always made my hair look and feel thick and healthy. I am African American 4b/c hair. Now that I do have grey hair I love that this product really does cover the grey. Many products say that it will but doesn’t! This one does the job.

Not for me

I need something that really covers the grey. This product doesn’t cover well enough for me, not crazy about the color for medium to darker browns.

I would like to start off by saying that I did not purchase this item from Amazon, however I will the next time but in BULK!!! I was in a hurry to get some hair color. I typically go to my local beauty supply store and I get some hair color to mix with my developer and then I color away. It has worked fine but I keep trying different brands hoping to get a DEEP black color that lasts. I have yet to find such a thing until now! I’ve tried several types from the beauty supply store but this time I walked in and went up to the sales girl and said, “I NEED a black color that will stay and I want it to be very black, what do you have?” She offered me two kinds with Bigen being one of them. I was skeptical because it was a powder that you mix with water but the hair swatch was so beautiful and the sales girl told me that it would last and it WAS very dark. So, I bought it. It was on sale for 3.00 a box and she suggested two boxes (which I’ve never had to do), but it was fine. Then I got home and chose to color immediately. Logic told me there was NO way that the color was going to work well with a brush in the little plastic container they give you, so I pulled out one of my coloring bottles and I poured the powder in and then used the plastic container to measure the water and I used both boxes as directed. I shook it up and went for it. There is no stinky smell, it wasn’t messy and it was quick! I washed out the dye, dried my hair, and instantly fell in love! I’m sold forever! My hair is just past my shoulders and layered. Next time I will not use two boxes, because I had to toss out a lot of it in the end. I will more than likely use a box and a half, which should be perfect. Great product, great price, easy to use…PERFECT!!

Don’t be afraid to try this! It’s much easier to use than it may seem, and the results are AWESOME. My hair came back to life … rich color and brilliant shine. Shampooing does not cause fading … and I used a burgundy shade! This will be the ONLY brand I use from now on!
