    If I have a faint greenish color cast on blond/really really light brown hair, what can I use to “get rid” of it? The cast is just on the hair on the sides of the little boy’s head. He is wearing a loose hat that lets some of his hair (with the greenish cast) show. I noticed this blog post was to help with a cast in dark hair.

    I have Newborn Necessities, but not currently any other MCP actions. However, if there are MCP actions that can help in this greenish color cast situation, I’m game to purchase them.

    Thank you for any help you can offer.
