You love your curls, your ends are trimmed, your hair's as healthy as it's ever been, but the season's changing and you're in the mood to try... something. When Tiffany was feeling like no matter what she did her hair looked "dull and bland" she decided to try dying her hair jet black. If you're considering going darker for the winter, watch Tiffany's video to see how she did it at home for less than $4.

Why did you want to color your hair?

I wanted to color my hair because it was looking very dull and the grey hairs didn't help. Grey hairs at a young age is common in my family and I was seeing them a whole lot. So I thought to myself, "It's time!"

Why did you choose Bigen?

My sister-in-law suggested I use Bigen as she is a user of the product herself. Having natural hair, I wanted to use a product that wouldn't damage my hair, or change its curl pattern. Since Bigen is ammonia free, I thought I'd give it a try. It was quick and easy to use.

How did you choose the right color? Did the color turn out the way you thought it would?

I knew I wanted jet black hair. So finding the color was quite easy for me. As far as how it turned out, JB1 Jet Black was perfect for me and I was very happy with it!

Since this is a temporary color, how long did it last for you?

Honestly, it lasted for me longer than I expected and I think that's because I chose a dark color on already dark hair. It lasted about 3 1/2 months or so.

Hair color can get messy! How do you keep from getting dye all over the place? And how do you clean up afterwards?

Well Bigen comes in a power form, so I just poured the powder into a plastic bowl and poured in the appropriate amount of water and stirred until it became a dark paste. I used gloves and made sure to follow the instructions which explain the process, so it was actually very easy and mess-free for me.

Did your hair feel dry or damaged from adding color to it?

No, honestly, I was so afraid to color my hair in the first place because I was afraid of my hair getting damaged along with feeling and looking dry. So I made sure to keep my hair moisturized which is a normal routine for me anyway. Especially with any kind of color or chemically treated hair, maintaining moisture is a must! I didn't experience a change in my curls whatsoever and my hair wasn't damaged after using Bigen.

Curly haired women often have to buy more than one bottle to color all of their hair, how many did it take to saturate all of your hair?

I used two bottles, just because I wanted to make sure it took the first time around and with having thick hair two bottles was more than enough.

Do you have any other tips from your experience that you want to share with someone who's dying their hair at home for the first time?

Always make sure to do your research and make sure to follow the instructions for any product you put in your hair. If your unsure or hesitant, test a small section of your hair to see how your hair takes to a product instead of going all in at once. This way if you don't like it, your whole head of hair is not affected.
