In the Ocean, no it wont. However, in a saltwater pool that is'nt cleaned often, the algae can grow in your hair and turn it green.

Will sun-in turn your hair green when you swim?

Sun-In will not turn your hair green if you swim. The reason that hair will turn green when swimming is due to the chemicals in the pool. When your hair is damaged, the chemicals soak in and that is what causes the color change.

Tonight I'm bleaching my hair but I want to go swimming Even if I rinse out the chlorine before I bleach it will it turn my hair green?

Chlorine does not turn hair green. Copper in the pool water is the culprit. If you wash your hair before you bleach it, it should not turn green from an earlier swim. If you are concerned about copper in your hair, rinse your hair with white vinegar. That will break down the copper and remove it.

Can you get in the pool if your hair is bleached?

Yes you can, but wash your hair as soon as you get out. Chlorine can turn blond or light hair green, even if it's natural. If you leave the chlorine out of the pool your hair can still turn green from the algae, I've witnessed this. You'll be fine as long as you shampoo as soon as you get out. Or use a swim cap to keep your hair dry if you can't wash it right away.
