Depending on your original hair colour, certain hair dyes can leave your hair with a greenish tint due to the chemicals reacting with your hair's enzymes. The green tint generally appears immediately after dying your hair with a commercial hair dye product. The tint is unattractive and frustrating. You don't have to reapply dye to your hair or consult with a hairdresser. You can get the green out of your hair using a homemade solution.
