Penny needs your help! I especially want to talk to my Sisters in Beauty (SIBs) who use permanent hair color regularly. Penny is not ready to go down with the gray hair ship...I want to fight the good fight for at least another year or two. LOL! I know it comes as no shock to anyone that I have been using Bigen Permanent Hair Color (# 58-Black Brown) for the last few years because it is ammonia-free and hydrogen peroxide-free. Yes, Penny has been "going gray" for over 10 years now (the streak), but it takes work to keep that 'just starting to gray' look. Ha ha ha!
- Hydrogen peroxide-free; doesn't strip/lift hair color
- Leaves my hair soft; not stripped and hard like other commercial products
- Covers 100% of my gray
- No harsh odors
- Does not wash out; permanent color for up to 4-6 weeks
- Rich look
- Includes a chemical called 'p-Paraphenylenediamine (PPD)' which is said to cause severe allergic reactions in some; the Center for Disease Control lists PPD as being a contact allergen; it's is in almost all hair dyes; the darker the color, the more PPD it contains; this is the same chemical added to natural henna to create "black henna;" there is no such thing as natural black henna; some are created using indigo, which is said to be less harmful.
- Bigen is not a 'natural or organic' product and the amount of PPD in it is controversial
- The first ingredient is 'Sodium Perborate' which is said to be an irritant for the skin; said to be used in laundry detergents and bleaches, as well as cleaning products; contains other potentially harmful chemicals.
- Does not contain henna or condition the hair like natural henna
Be blessed. Be beautiful.
