Help! My hair has turned green. What can I do?
If you’ve ever bleached your hair or coloured it blonde, you may have experienced the dreaded green tinge that can occur. This can happen when the hair is exposed to chlorine or copper in water, or when certain dyes or toners are used. If you’re based in Abingdon, there are plenty of Abingdon hairdressers who can help you fix this issue. Here are some tips to help you deal with green hair at home.
Tip 1: Identify the cause: Before you can fix the problem, you need to identify the cause. If your hair has turned green after swimming in a pool, it’s likely due to the chlorine in the water. If it happened after using a certain product or dye, it may be due to a chemical reaction. Knowing the cause will help you choose the right solution.
Tip 2: Use a clarifying shampoo: A clarifying shampoo can help to strip the green tint from your hair. Look for a shampoo that is specifically designed to remove chlorine or copper, or one that is labelled as a clarifying shampoo. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully, as these shampoos can be drying and should not be used too often.
Tip 3: Try a baking soda paste: Mixing baking soda and water to create a paste can also help to remove green tint from hair. Apply the paste to your hair, massage it in, and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly. You can also mix the paste with shampoo for added cleansing power.
