The use of hair dye is very common throughout the country and there are a variety brands and hair dyes that individuals may choose from. One may wish to dye their hair permanently or temporarily, using a dye to achieve their desired color. Many people have turned to the Bigen brand, a so-called “trusted name in permanent hair color” to help achieve their desired look, but instead of simply changing their hair’s color, some people have experienced serious health problems from the hair dye.
Bigen hair dye is produced by a Japanese company and is available in a variety of colors. The hair dye is very popular throughout the United States and is used in a number of salons as well as for home use. It is available both as a semi-permanent and a permanent option. The semi-permanent dye is in the form of a liquid, and the permanent color is in powder form. The powder formula marketed by Bigen is activated by water and claims to color even the most stubborn gray hair. Bigen claims that the product is “the gentle choice for rich color and optimum shine,” but this is not the case. Bigen hair products have instead caused much more problems for users that go well beyond a few gray hairs.
The chemicals in the hair dye can react with the skin and cause a number of problems for the individual that may require hospitalization. The possible reactions of Bigen hair products with the skin include the following:
- Loss of hair
- Damage to the scalp
- Chemical burns
- Restriction to airway
