How can I remove green from blonde hairlights? Iíve had some success with home remedy but not full removal, and it looks worse as the highlights look pale green so show against my overall brown tone. I am unsure whether it is my water supply with copper and or other heavy metals that have discoloured the highlights or if it was the Manic Panic violet toner I used with Olaplex after doing bleach highlights. Could be a combination. So I have been rinsing my hair in heated bottled water post home remedies. And I have purchased a shower head with vit C and beads to remove heavy metals, but this will take a day or two to arrive. From online research it looks as if I left the manic panic violet toner on mixed with Olaplex Plus far too long. I did this because post highlights my highlights had a copper tinge. I washed my hair afterwards, shampooing a couple of times with a highlights shampoo and conditioner. At first after drying my hair post highlighting and condition with violet manic panic toner it looked fabulous: my usual light brown with light blonde highlights as desired. But after going for a walk in the sun within a few hours it had developed a green tinge and this morning the highlights seemed more green. I have tried to remove the green with natural remedies washing my hair a few times post applications of ketchup, then baking soda and lemon. After it didnít seem to budge x3 shampoos later, so then I tried pure vitamin C powder and cling film. The latter did show quite a bit of green on the clingfilm but my hair still looks green, just a lighter tone, I guess because the hair is blonde underneath and some of the green has removed. I could go to a hairdresser but most are closed on Mondays and I am keen to try and fix it myself if the colour removal - such as Louise Galvin Colour Removal would work. I have some in the cupboard but wanted to try a softer approach first. Hence I need to check if thereís anything in the LG Colour Removal that could cause yet another reaction / undesired effect? I am wary of going to a hairdresser as they might try to do a bleach wash. Any advice here about what treatment I should be looking for from a hairdresser would be very welcome. I havenít always had good experiences with salons hence keeping trusty LG Colour removal in the cupboard! For highlights I used Daniel Field Natural Lights which I have used before without issue. This time I did add Olaplex to the mix as I thought this would lessen the bleach damage. I did the highlights on Friday and tried to wash out the green on Sunday as was too busy Saturday. Probably should have done it Saturday if leaving it longer has seen the green set in? Please let me know what you think I should try next. Budget is no problem to fix this.Many thanks in advance.

Hello Dee, This may sound totally bonkers but please try shampooing your hair with high detergent shampoo or washing up liquid, leave on the hair for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. The foam from the high detergent will hopefully be discoloured as it should be removing the green residue. Rinse your hair in warm water and repeat, really massage the detergent into the affected areas, leave again for 5 Ė 15 mins before rinsing. This should truly resolve the issue, and it works in a similar way to clarifying shampoo but can make the hair feel brittle so please use a treatment mask as well as conditioner. This is a really common problem and is probably a combination of all the mentioned in your email, I have my fingers crossed for you. Good luck

I have my hair coloured about every 6 - 8 weeks. However my roots are coming through quicker each time. They started off grey but now my hairdresser is telling me I am white (like my poor old late mum). Could I have it dyed a grey that would blend in with the white?

Hello Annette, Perhaps you should try having a lighter root colour as this would make the roots coming through less obvious, or how about having a haircut (so you lose some of the old coloured hair) and go natural, having lots of very light blonde highlights and then use a grey toner? Itís not possible unless you do dye the hair grey if it is already coloured unless itís blonde and you donít want to go darker as the roots will show even more. I would take the opportunity to have a re style and go for one of the fabulous grey/ silver toners that are so fashionable, so go with the natural look and embrace your white and get on trend. Hope you take the plunge, good luck x

I am 55 and have had my hair coloured and or high-lighted at the roots for years. Yesterday,my hairdresser used the same colour for over a decade, the top of the blonde hair is great, but underneath on the right hand side it became dark like really dark, dark and a hint of black. My hairdresser has never seen this before. Any idea why?
