If your hair color turns out looking orange or green, try using a clarifying shampoo. This will help to remove any build-up from the hair and can help return it to its natural color. You can also try using a color-correcting shampoo. This will help to neutralize the orange or green tones in your hair. If your hair is still not the right color, you may need to use a demi-permanent color to neutralize unwanted tones. My go to for this is Redken Shades EQ.

And lastly, if you are unsure about what color to choose, the consult with a professional hair colorist should be thorough and include previous hair color history and goals.
