    Green hair. EW.
    So my hair was dark brown. I bleached it out to dye it a lighter brown, and now its green and I swear it almost looks gray.

    Is there a way to fix this without dying it AGAIN?

    Your prompt response will be GREATLY appreciated.

    :) :( :confused: :mad: :p ;)

    You can't just "fix" this problem without dying it again. Apparently whatever kind of base you are using is reacting wrongly with your hair color and hair type. You might want to let your hair "rest" a few days before doing anything else to it. It just may oxidize the hair color out in those few days and won't look so bad. Anytime I used a light brown color, I would get the same greenish tinge. It would go away in a few days. Next time choose a different base color.
