Yes, if you are swimming in a pool that has chlorine in it. Some other chemicals added to Swimming Pools to clean the water react with your hair. It can turn blond hair green and it can change the color if you have dyed or rinsed your hair color.

If you dye your hair black will clorean change it green?

No, Clorine won't cause your dyed black hair to change to green, but it will cause your hair color to fade. You will notice that the color is not as deep as it was when you first colored it. The best way to prevent this is to do the following before going into Clorinated water: Wet your hair and coat it with conditioner. Do Not rinse. After swimming, rinse out your hair well, in cool water. This is good to do even if you're just going swimming in the ocean or in a lake, just to protect your color.

Try covering your hair with a shower cap and keep your hair out of the water. You don't need to cover your hair if you don't do a drastic color (like red or dark brown) YOU SHOULD USE A SHAMPOO THAT MATCHES YOUR OWN HAIR COLOR. IT IS MADE TO LOCK THE COLOR IN.
