Problem: Green hairFast Fix: Ketchup
Blondes may have more fun, but not when their hair turns green. A quick dip in chlorinated water or too much sun exposure is all it takes to cause an unwanted color change. When this happens, Robinson advises a nifty homemade remedy: "Washing hair with ketchup is a simple and quick way to cancel out green tones." We know it sounds crazy, but the red from the tomatoes counteracts the green tints. And the acid helps remove minerals that caused the nasty chemical color reaction. Simply massage the ketchup into your hair with your fingertips, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, then rinse out thoroughly with cool water.
