Wiki s have suggested:

  • To prevent the green in your hair from a pool, just put hair conditioner on it before swimming (like some kind out of the shower nothing fancy). This works really well.
  • Use a clarifying shampoo for chlorine/buildup. It will work just as well. Examples would be Paul Mitchell Shampoo One, Joice KPAK Clarifying Shampoo and Red-ken Chemistry Shampoo, Malabo 2000.
  • Put tomato paste all through your hair and let it sit there for at least 30 minutes, then rinse it out. My Mom used to do it for me at the end of every summer.
  • Baking soda. Don't use it everyday, because it will dry out your hair. But when you take a shower after swimming, just add a tablespoon of baking soda to your handful of your regular shampoo and wash your hair normally, followed by conditioner. It will keep your hair from turning green and stop chlorine buildup.
  • After your hair has turned green, you can use ketchup or tomato paste or blended tomatoes as a hair mask before shampooing. Since green is opposite red on the color wheel you can use something red. Just like if you had a little redness under your eye, the makeup artist will give you a green tinted moisturizer to eliminate or neutralize the red. Make sure you shampoo twice.

On using baking soda with regular shampoo - I am a brunette, and I've had problems with chlorine for years but I no longer want to keep my hair short. I tried using 1 tbsp of baking soda with regular shampoo (nothing special, just a regular drug store buy) and a good conditioner (again, nothing fancy). It works like a charm, really. My hair hasn't been in this condition for ages. I swim about 5 times a week in a chlorinated pool. As long as you leave it in at least 30 seconds (mix baking soda into shampoo just before you use it). Then after a thorough rinse, condition and leave conditioner in for about 1 minute and voila! A beautiful head of healthy chlorine-free hair!

It would be better to avoid green hair. Do not use a copper based algaecide in the pool water, and keep chlorine level below 5 ppm.
