  • LOL! Not meaning to laugh at your little girl, but this happens to my little girl all the time!

    By putting baking soda with her regular shampoo, you can get it out ... and by wetting her hair and lightly putting conditioner on it before she swims, you can prevent some of it too!

  • my mom would do tomato juice. like megan said, wet her hair down before she goes into the pool or be sure to rinse it right after she gets out...so the pool water doesn't sit in her hair. my hair used to do this when I was little too! :)

  • Yep, they all have it right. I used to get a green 'halo' where the rubberband from my ponytail sat.

  • We used a shampoo and conditioner call citrus shine when that happened to us when we were younger.

  • Oh that happened to me all the time when I was little what I find weird is that my dds hair doesnt turn green and she is in the pool just as much as I was and she is blonde. on another note I remember we use vinegar, tomato juice, wet the hair before getting in, and nexxus make a shampoo I cant remember the exact name but aloe rid is sounding right.
