Why Is My Hair Green?

It’s Pool Time! You spend hours picking out the cutest bathing suit you can find! You go out and get your spray tan before sun bathing.  You might even slap on some tinted lip balm or lip gloss. You have thought of everything!! Girl, you are looking good as you prance over to the side of the pool, blow a kiss to your man, and jump in.  As you come up from the water feeling like a Victoria’s Secret model, everyone gasps! You look like nothing more than the offspring of the Hulk!  Your gorgeous blond locks have soaked up the copper, iron, and manganese causing you to have green hair. 

To avoid this horrid experience follow these simple steps.

                              Wet your hair with tap water before entering the pool.

                              Massage some conditioner into your hair concentrating on the ends.

                              Rinse your hair at the pool shower when exiting the pool.

Too Late? Follow these steps below for your home remedy to remove green from your hair.
