If you have blonde hair, you may notice that if you swim in a chlorinated swimming pool, your hair becomes discoloured. The same tint of green can also appear when your hair has been exposed to too much sunlight. Before you try a drastic procedure such as dyeing your hair or purchasing a chemical product to rid the hair of the green tint, consider a home remedy.

  1. 1

    Lean over a sink or tub and spread about 3 cups of ketchup over the entire surface of your hair. You may need more ketchup if you have long or thick hair.

  2. 2

    Comb the ketchup into your hair with the comb to distribute it evenly. Leave it in for about 30 minutes.

  3. 3

    Rinse the ketchup out of your hair with cold water.

  4. 4

    Shampoo your hair as normal, taking care to remove the ketchup completely. Rinse your hair again.

  5. 5

    Dry your hair as you usually would do, and check for a green tint. If there is still a slight tint of green in your hair, repeat the process.
