The water isn't green. Sediment sticks to the pool's floor. The water looks green Scoop some of the water in a bowl and you'll see that the water is clean. Get a pool vacuum to get the sediment off the floor. The water will look clear.

means there is algae in your pool

No, algae makes your pool water green. Use chlorine to kill the algae and maybe a good algaecide to keep it clear.

It is not the salt water pool or the salt water that is turning your hair green. It is a poorly maintained pool with a chemical imbalance - pH and total alkalinity out of required parameters.
