Time for Crazy Hair Day! #Bigen #HolidayGiftGuide


Every year at school the kids have crazy hair day. I always dread it because I don’t know what to do! I’m just not that creative when it comes to things like this. I need help! This year the kids told me they wanted their hair different colors. Oh boy! I had to find something that was semi- permanent hair color but that was going to be fun colors for them to wear for a few days.

We tried one of the new shades from Bigen in Turquoise blue since Reed is a boy and boys wear blue right? I also got Apricot Red for Paige since it’s a “girl” color. This is life according to elementary kids!


It seemed easy enough to put on and then I just had to leave in his hair a while. The funny thing is it actually smelled like it looked: like blueberry! Here’s a little tip I learned. Wear gloves! My hands turned blue – oops!


As my toddler saw me doing Reed’s hair, he wanted to do it too. Little brother wants to do everything big brother does these days!


Sadly, Reed’s hair didn’t come out as blue as we’d hoped. Since he has dark hair it was kind of hard to see. I could see it really well on his scalp but not so much on his hair.


We decided to just buzz the middle in kind of a reverse mohawk to make it extra crazy and then we were able to see the blue – problem solved!


To avoid repeating the same mistake with Paige’s hair I contacted the company. I learned that if you have dark hair it needs Cream Developer or Dust-Free Powder Bleach first. Paige’s hair is much lighter so I wasn’t as worried about it not coming out on her.

I love having an easy, semi-permanent solution to do fun things with my kids hair. I can’t wait to try it on Paige for the holidays! This would make a really cute stocking stuffer this year!
