  • If your blue hair turned green, you can re-apply the same blue hair dye you used at first to unify the color.

  • If you decide to remove the green, but don’t want to change colors, you’ll have to fade the pigments using anti-dandruff shampoo.


When it comes to coloring your hair with non-traditional dyes, the future may bring unpleasant surprises.

For example,  your hair, which you had colored that blue you liked so much, may turn green and you don’t know how that happened. 

The answer is simple and far from being a mystery.


When you decided to color your hair with semi-permanent dye, blue in this case, the first thing you did was to bleach your hair to reach a light yellow base color.

As you applied a blue hair dye, when you wash your hair, the color starts to fade, and green starts to show.


 It’s a very common disadvantage in fantasy colors and semi-permanent hair dyes. As they fade, the pigments (blue) blends with the base (yellow), and the resulting color isn’t what you expect (green). 

So, if you used to wear perfect blue in your hair, now the only thing you can see is a greenish tone that is very far from what you want.

How to fix your hair turned green by fading the color faster

to remove traces of hair dye

If you no longer want to use semi-permanent hair dye but want to remove the green shades, you can speed up the fading process.

You’ll have to bleach your hair. All you need is an anti-dandruff shampoo. Why?


 Because that kind of shampoo has a higher amount of sulfates. They are corrosive chemicals that remove dye from your hair, whether they are permanent or semi-permanent. 

If you use anti-dandruff shampoo, the green shades will disappear after 5 or 6 washes.

How to use anti-dandruff shampoo.


  • Wet your hair. Lather a generous amount of anti-dandruff shampoo and massage your scalp thoroughly.
  • Let it in for 5 minutes and rinse as usual.
  • Apply moisturizing conditioner with keratin or oil to repair your hair, because anti-dandruff shampoo tends to dry hair.



If your blue hair turned green, you can solve it with different options that will depend on whether you want to keep on coloring your hair or if you prefer to go back to your base color.

  • If you prefer to color your hair, you can apply a blue dye because it’ll cover green or any other semi-permanent color. If you decide to apply another color, you’ll have to take the green base color into account when selecting the new hair dye.
  • If you no longer want to wear blue or green hair, an anti-dandruff shampoo may help accelerate the fading process of your semi-permanent hair dye. Remember that, in that case, you’ll have to deeply moisturize your hair afterward.

Now, what will you choose? Will you wear blue or green hair, or do you prefer your natural color?
