Ketchup for Green Hair and more DIY natural Beauty Recipes that really Work!

Most blondes will tell you that they are very careful about avoiding too much pool time in the summer for fear of the "martian" effect on their locks. You might be surprised to learn that the real culprit in this is COPPER. And if you have copper pipes you might end up with that green tint as well.

Chlorine does play a part however, in that the copper in the water will be oxidized by the chlorine and causes binding of proteins to the hair shaft, turning it green. 

An easy DIY at home fix? Ketchup! The tomatoes and the vinegar will neutralize this chemical reaction. Simply use ketchup on your hair, wrap with plastic or a shower cap. Leave on for 20 minutes and shampoo out.

Here are a few more inexpensive recipes to help with common hair problems that I shared yesterday with the viewers of ARIZONA Midday on Channel 12 in Phoenix using all natural ingredients you can find in the grocery store. Watch the video below.
