Why does Wella T15 remove green color in your hair?

opposite colors are complementary

Neutralization is a process by which you apply the opposite color to the color you want to remove. The famous color wheel dictates the right color. The right product to carry out the process is a toner.


Sometimes, after bleaching or coloring, unwanted tones such as orange, red, or green may appear. Therefore, colorists neutralize them with the opposite color.

The color wheel says that:



In this case,  as your hair is green, you should apply a product with red pigments. Don't panic. You won't end up as a redhead! .

Your hair is green either because it has the remains of a faded semi-permanent hair dye or because of over-pigmentation from an ash dye. That’s where the toner works.


Is there a secret to using T15?

Yes, and you should know it to avoid ruining your color. However, don't worry. I'm here to prevent that. That's what I'll talk to you about next.


How to use Wella T15 correctly on green hair

Although it’s easy to use Wella's T15, you should consider two things.


What caused your hair to turn green?

  • If the greenish tones arise because you applied a permanent ash dye, I recommend applying T15 immediately. Then, the hair fiber will absorb the pigment from the toner together with the hair dye.
  • If you had applied a green semi-permanent hair dye, I recommend that you let it fade completely. Then, you’ll see if the result is what you were hoping for. If the hair dye is already faded, and you still notice green traces, you can apply the T15.


How intense is the green that you want to remove?

This is very important. It’ll determine how long  you should leave the Wella toner on to neutralize the green without changing your base color. .

  • If the tone is dark green, you should leave the Wella toner for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • If the shade is medium green, you should leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • If the shade is light green, you should leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • If the shade is very light green, you should leave it on for 5 minutes


Also, you should keep a close eye on your hair’s reaction. I mean almost on a minute-by-minute basis.

When you notice that there’s no more green residue, you should rinse the toner out immediately.

The application?

These tips will make it easy.



  • Wella Color Charm T15
  • 20-volume developer
  • Plastic container
  • Hair dye brush
  • Gloves and hair clips
  • Towel



You can apply the toner to either damp or dry hair. Separate your hair into four sections, from forehead to nape and from ear to ear, holding each section with a hair clip.

  • In the plastic container, mix two parts 20-volume developer with one part Wella T15 and mix well to integrate. Remember to use gloves because the toner stains the skin.[/su_list].


  • Release one of the sections of your hair. Apply Wella T15 from root to tip with the dye brush on each section.


  • Then, let it act according to the times I previously indicated.  Don't overdo it because your hair may end up with a reddish shade. 


  • After the exposure time, rinse your hair with plenty of warm water until it runs crystal clear. Don’t use shampoo. You can apply a small amount of your usual conditioner

Wella T15 is the right toner to get rid of greenish tones from your hair.

To prevent green tones from reappearing, you can change your hair color from ashy to iridescent. It’s a different shade, and it won’t leave such unpleasant tones.

You can also use a red toning shampoo once or twice a week. You must also be very strict with the exposure times so as not to change your color completely.
