Re: colored my hair with ash shade,now looks kinda green,how can i fix it?

The greenish tint occurs because ash deposits green to counteract any red tints in the hair. It's likely that your hair was already processed without any red in it, or it naturally didn't need the ash to begin with. I had the same thing happen to my hair, and the only way to easily fix it is to apply a reddish-brown colour to your hair.The reason this works is because red is opposite on the colour scheme. I'd recommend Natural Instincts semi-permanent dyes (or something similar) found in most drug stores, as it doesn't have the harsh chemicals in it such as amonia, and it's actually a kind of treatment for your hair.

Your other option is to go to a salon and get it professionally corrected, which may take more than one time, because the green can be quite resistant when you're trying to stay blonde.
