Is it likes a shoe polish for the hairline?
I think that’s how some people pronounce “Bigen.”
There was a Twitter thread about it. Let me see if I can find it.
Lol my goodness
Back in the 90s, I use to rock the mahogany Bigen. Man, this brings back memories.
He's not seriously addicted. Spice Adams is a comedian. Lol.
Someone used Bigen on a kid and of course Reggie aka Spice Adam's made a video about it.
Lol. There was no reason to do that kid's hairline like that.
So mad at him spraying all that Joop.
On your hair line? Or as a hair color? @keranikki
Both. Like a brow pen can fill in brows and create some imaginary hair where someone may not have any.
It was mostly really popular to darken black men's hair and beard in the 90s to cover gray hair. It became something to give them the appearance of hairline and hair, before they reach the point of no return George Jefferson look, in the 2000s. The first person I remember to obviously use it to cover a balding head was Carlos Boozer. Lol. Then within a few days of that game he was balding again and everyone was talking about it.
Ya'll got me good. Especially when he kept it at his bedside, got up and rubbed it on his face. Now I can laugh. That was weird.
I’ve been pronouncing it “Byjen” all this time when I should have been saying it like that city in China? Phooey.
I read that it’s bee-jin. It’s definitely not pronounced Beijing lol
My grandmothers and "aunties" have colored their hair with the black bigen dye for years.
We def pronounce it Beijing here lol
I never knew dudes were using it like that on their hairlines lol
That's interesting. In the 90s, all the women I knew used Jazzn or whatever it's called in that purple bottle. Lol
I grew up with Bigen being sold in the men's section of the BSS with all their pomades and such.
Beijing!! My auntie uses it for her roots she pronounce it Bih-jen
I use it on my eyebrows... no quelms about it.
Lol where I'm from we call it Beijing too
I've used it to dye my hair, it's the blackest black dye ever
Is this real ??
It's not pronounced like "biggen"?
I thought that, too until someone told me, with great condemnation, that the word is French and is pronounced “Bee JHAN.” BUT, I later found out that the company that makes it is in Japan, and now I don’t know what to say or whose language I’m mispronouncing.
The streets I'm from have always pronounced it as Beijing...it is what is! That stuff will make your hair as black as shoe polish! I've never used it but my mom and grandmom did.
What I'm going to start using since all the new hairs along my hairline are coming in white
My gma & g-aunts used it
According to this ad, Captain Pretentious N. French was wrong too.
Five little letters is tripping everyone up.
Good grief. BEE-gin?
