Chlorine Green-Hair Recovery Rinse

If you swim frequently in a chlorinated pool, you may already know that the chemical can cause hair to become greenish.

While bright green hair might be a social trend, the chlorine-green hair look is far from a desired look, or so most agree.

Here is a simple homemade rinse to stop chlorine’s chemical reaction with your hair!

Wet your hair in a shower. Massage ¼ cup tomato juice into your hair and let set for a few minutes before washing as usual. (This amount of tomato juice is enough for one rinse.) Rinse the tomato juice out of your hair, and then wash as usual.
