My advice is to dissolve some aspirin in a glass of water and rinse your hair with it. That should neutralize the green if it's due to chlorine in the water...

O used to be on the swim team and used a really good shampoo that was especially to get the chlorine out of your hair. I just dont remember what it's called...

It was a white bottle with black kind of blocky writting. The name of the shampoo was written side ways on the left side of the shapoo, it was the #3 formula I believe.

My friend was telling me the other day that the same thing happened with a friend of hers.
Apparently she used some apple cider vinegar in her hair (diluted in water I suppose), and the green shades disappeared 2 to 3 days later.

Good luck!

There is a very easy and simple answer to this problem. It happened to me once and all I did was get swimmers shampoo, wash my hair 5 times in a row and it was fixed. Use it for as long as you are in the dorm.

I asked a few salons first and had some really bad advice, thank heavens I didn't listen. One told me to strip the color (fry my hair) and dye it.

I hope you haven't done anything like that yet because it is NOT necessary.

Let me know how you make out.

My hair was really green too, I know how you feel but it was fixed in no time flat with swimmers shampoo.

Maybe you should do some research before you go making accusations.

"Up to 2/3 of our harmful exposure to chlorine is due to inhalation of steam and skin absorption while showering.

A warm shower opens up the pores of the skin and allows for accelerated absorption of chlorine and other chemicals in water. The steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 50 times the level of chemicals that tap water contains, due to the fact that chlorine and most other contaminants vaporize much faster and at a lower temperature than water. Inhalation is a much more harmful means of exposure, as the chlorine gas (chloroform) we inhale travels directly into our blood stream. When we drink contaminated water, the toxins are partially filtered out by our kidneys and digestive system. Chlorine vapors are known to be a strong irritant to the sensitive tissue and bronchial passages inside our lungs; they were used as a chemical weapon in World War II. The inhalation of chlorine is a suspected cause of asthma and bronchitis, especially in children; such cases have increased 300% in the last two decades."

I had the same problem when I went to school in WV, so I got a water filter. It REALLY helped. I also take Vitamin C, crush it up, put it in bottled water and rinse my hair with it once a week.

Hair breakage from coloring
I have been getting blonde highlights for years now and I usually get a bigger piece at the very front. I've realized that now I have some really bad breakage there form doing that. What are some products or tips for building up it's strength and back to proper health so when I redye (probably pretty soon) they won't be all gone.

my hairdersser recommended the use of pure olive oil-put it on on dry hair, leave it on for as long as you wish, then shampoo it off as is(do not wet hair,before applying shampoo, this will get rid of all the oil), and then continue with whatever you normally do.

I agree with the last post- don't try to fix this at home. And I recommend NOT to use Henna. Maybe there are different types out there but if you use Henna and want to go back to blonde, it will fry your hair. My hair colorist once highlighted a girl's hair that had Henna in it and he said the foil was actually HOT because of the reaction. It ended up working but it definitely damaged the hair. I know Henna is natural (I used to use it) but it doesn't seem to mix well with other hair color.

Good luck and please let us know how it goes. I really hope everything will work out ok! (My wedding is coming up and I can imagine the panic you must have felt.)

Mind posting your ex-hairdressers name and salon so fellow tFSers can avoid her?
