Does anyone have a home recipe to remove the "green" tint out of hair as a result of swimming?

I've heard that rinsing with beer works well too.
I have made the baking soda/shampoo paste for my daughters hair, and that seems to work well, but it is hard on her hair to use it frequently. I will try diluting the baking soda with water. I will also have to try tomato and lemon juice..... Thanks
Years ago, we lived in a community with a pool. They always put too much chlorine in it. So all the little blonds were all the little greens! Needless to say, I had a houseful of blondes, but I didn't let them go cos I didn't know there was a remedy out there! Wish I knew then what I just learned in here! Apparently no one did cos we had green heads all summer long into the fall cos it just had to wear off. I was the "bad mommy" cos I didn't want a bunch of Martians living with me!
I will try all of these, and let you know.
I just rear some where to crush 9/15 Aspirin Tablets in a container(lg. pitcher) of warm water and pour through hair...work it through then rinse. It may need to be repeated if it's really green but shouldn't damage hair.
I was told to try Morning Fresh dish washing liquid. Leave it on for 5 minute then wash and condition well.
While I do not doubt many of the remedies, it is not chlorine that turns hair green, but copper in the water (from different algecides and other sources). The way to get it out is to apply a mild acid (such as lemon juice or tomato) and rinse, rinse, rinse.
If it was chlorine that turned your hair green, it would be irreparable, think about what bleach does to colored fabric, can it be fixed with baking soda, etc.? I don't think so!
