my blond kid now has green tinted hair

Postby kbman36 » Thu 11 May, 2006 19:54

just got my pool wizard last thursday
its been in the pool one week
the water has never looked better and my
kids love to swim
but my blond son now has green hair (not totally just slightly tinted)
is it from the copper that came with the wizard?
ph and clorine not too high
if it is from the wizard will the copper levels deminish?

I found on other sites to try ketchup, which I did about 30 minutes ago...And I'd say it took 90% of the green tint out. I put in on my daughter's wet hair for about 20 minutes. I am going to try to get the rest out tomorrow doing dry hair maybe for 30 minutes. But this was hand's down the best remedy I have tried. And very quick. Last year I tried baking soda and it took over a week and then it still wasn't completely out. So this definately worked for me! :)

Green hair Remedy

Swimmers shampoo gets rid of the green tint in blonde people's hair due to the blue minerals not fully dissolved in the water.

When the Minerals are dissolved fully into the water, the hair no longer tints and your child can swim without anymore tinting concerns!

Copper may be the issue. Test the water for copper and remove it from the water. Copper can enter the pool from copper based algicides, copper sulfate and a dissolved heater core.

Same problems here!!! Installed it last week in a 40,000 gallon pool and I run the pump 24x7. Water looks great! My kids swam today for the first time and I Started to see green tint in their blond hair! This has happened before the pool wizard. Is the copper from that pool wizard "spring"? :shock:

Anyway, I just used a liter of metal balancer. Hopefully no more green hair... :roll:

Swimming pools have been turning my blond hair greenish for 50+ years. I was using public pools as a child, but have had my own for 25 years. It happened in both. We just expected it, and never did anything about it, other than rinsing with water when I finished swimming.

check the chlorine level. Above 8 ppm can cause green hair. and like said before, check copper.

My hairdresser suggested that you wet your hair before swimming. That way the hair absorbs the clean water, then will not absorb as much of the chemical pool water while swimming. Was a help for me.
