    Haha oh gosh the typical green hair dilemma. Okay it almost sounds like you might have tried to color your blonde hair brown? I have been a hairstylist for two years now, so what I would do honestly? Just go get some box dye and color it a very dark brown

    You tried to dye colored or bleached blonde hair to brown. Right? You need to add red. Red + Green = brown.

    Look for what is missing in the color wheel... orange is across from green , so when combined the two cancel each other out .personally , I would go to a stylist because with corrective color sometimes you only have one shot and that is it... then bye bye hair or something you won't like any more than green... box color jobs never save money in the long run... :(

    Thank you.
    I have been to salon already,spend a fortune and now tried to fix it myself((
    I put red and brown,and my haed was burning -the result is slightly better,but the brown is not very rich((
    Do you think I can use the dye withjout ammonia to achieve the result without damaging the hair?
    Thank you in advance!

    All dyes damage the hair. That being said, ammonia-free colors are claimed to be gentler (there is a lot of hype in this claim), and if it makes your scalp feel better, you certainly can use that type of dye.

    Alternately, use a completely temporary dye for a while (Roux Fanci-Ful rinses, for example) until your scalp heals.

    If anyone has this problem in the future my advice is really simple, when you have dyed it brown before you shampoo with the freebe put on a ash toner from any chemist or boots store it gets rid if the orange pigments that have turned it green in the first place, hope this helps
