Bigen Hair Products have caused many people various reactions that are damaging to both their physical and emotional health.
Bigen offers permanent hair color in a powder form. It is marketed as easy to use and gentle on hair, with the only necessary step to activation being water.
Bigen’s so-called gentler hair dye has been called a “coal-tar hair dye” by the United States Food and Drug Administration. This means that the chemicals and ingredients in this hair dye can cause serious problems to those who use it, including side effects that can cause life-threatening reactions.
What is Coal Tar?
Coal tar is a by-product when coal is burned and is a thick liquid. In the past, this has been used in sealants for pavement, but has since been banned because of increased risk for cancer to those who are exposed to the dust of the sealant. This dust is dangerous because it has chemicals that are hazardous to one’s health.
Bigen has the dangerous chemicals that are explained above. Due to this, customers who use this product should do a “patch test” to ensure that they are not allergic to it. This means that the product would be applied to a small area a day or two before the intended use to ensure that the individual does not suffer any serious reactions.
Unfortunately, studies surrounding Bigen hair products show that this allergy test does not properly determine whether someone will have an allergic reaction from the hair dye.
