You just got done swimming in a pool full of chlorine and your blonde hair turned green. What do you do? First of all, don’t panic time. A few home remedies and patience will take the green out of your hair. Being in the beauty industry for over 15 years I
have experimented with a lot of homemade beauty products to help other client’s hair. In the summer chlorine hair is always the number one problem not just with kid’s adults as well. What got me to write this article was one of my clients just got back from a Las Vegas trip and her frosted hair turned slightly green from swimming in the pool. Being a beautician I could of gave her tips on how to protect her frosted hair from turning green, but I only cut her a few times and she frosted her hair 2 days before the trip on the spur of a moment, so I knew nothing about it until she called me up asking for help.
How can you get the green color out of your blonde hair from the chlorine? Are there any home remedies that actually take the green out? Yes, there are quite a few home remedies for this, but some may not work as well as others. The results will vary depending on how much green is actually in the person’s hair. If you only have a slight green tint from the chlorine you can probably get away with just using an aspirin. If the green tint is over powering you might need to do a double procedure by using a clarifying shampoo first followed by a tomato soup rinse. Some people swear by using a tomato paste, but from experience I had better results using a can of tomato soup.
What is the best clarifying shampoo to help take the green out of chlorine hair? Actually there are two products I feel work the best. The first one is called “RPR De-Chlorinate My Hair”. This shampoo will take the green out of chlorine hair, keep it soft, and can be used on a every other day basis to help prevent any more green from chlorine or damage from the ocean or sun. The smell is very pleasant, and it lathers up quite well from using just a very small amount. The price is a little expensive, but it will take the green out and save you from going to the hair salon and paying a fortune. Price is $16.95 for 7 ounces.
