Default Help, my hair is ashy/green from the swimming pool!!!

I moved into a house with a pool last month and have been swimming everday. It is a salt water pool, though it still does have a small amount of chlorine.

My hair, which is highlighted blond, has turned an awful ashy/green color. I looked on the interent for solutions and tried the white vinegar/aspirin combo and tomato sauce but nothing has worked. I'm so afraid this is permanent. My hair was a beautiful color of blonde, the kind you would get from the sun bleaching it.

Any suggestions, anyone???!!!!!

Try using this....
http://www.chattem.com/products/ultra.asp



i used to use it when I was a kid. I know it works pretty well on blondes too. You might also want to think of purchasing a bathing cap too. I know they look funny but it will prevent that from happening again.

Or you can buy TRESemme Deep Cleansing Vitamin C shampoo.

It does have ALS, but also pretty gentle because of the proteins.

It has LOADS of lemon/grapefruit extracts that have been proven to take off the green. (It says that on the back of the bottle. xD)

You might want to get in the habit of wetting your hair with tapwater before getting in the pool. Wet and under a swimcap should help some, but if the swimcap isn't gonna work then just wetting should help keep chlorine from getting in the cuticle. Hope you get your blonde back!
