* This got blended with a GreenAesop, of all things, in an episode of ''DifferentStrokes''. Kimberly tried washing/rinsing her hair with rainwater caught in a copper bowl. However, it was acid rain, which reacted with the metal and left a layer of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verdigris verdigris]] on her hair.

* In Robert Service's poem ''The Baldness of Chewed-Ear'', Chewed-Ear Jenkins wagers $1,000 that his wife can't cure his baldness. The wife tries every hair tonic she can find, even selling stock to Chewed-Ear's friends so they'll try their own ideas on him. When their combined ministrations start to work, Chewed-Ear tries to cheat them by shaving and applying hair-destroying drugs to his scalp when they're not looking. The unholy combination of hair restorers and hair destroyers eventually makes the hair come in - ''green''.

* This was used to explain Princess Sally's varying hair/fur coloring in the early issues of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'': during a mission, Sally fell into a vat of chemicals. Though she came out unscathed, attempts to wash the chemicals out lead her fur and hair being miscolored (from red hair and brown fur, to blonde hair and red fur, to black hair and pink fur and back to red and brown).

This is a SubTrope of CosmeticCatastrophe specific to hair coloring. Also compare NeverTrustAHairTonic. KaleidoscopeHair can occur if Alice keeps re-dying her hair.

* In the last episode of ''TheBradyBunch'', Greg buys some hair tonic from Bobby out of pity, and it turns his hair orange. Greg wasn't trying to color his hair; it just worked that way.

* An episode of ''TheOprahWinfreyShow'' was describing how she was involved in harmless pranks. One of the pranks had clients of a hair salon watch a teaser showing people using a shampoo/conditioner caused people's hair to turn out green. It was the same shampoo used in the hair salon.

* In the late 1950s or early 1960s, there was a Saturday morning show for pre-teens and young adults with a ''WhatWouldYouDo'' theme. In one episode, a girl of about twelve is an initiate in a club called the Rats (perhaps "Lemmings" might have been too obvious). When the Rats vote to dye their hair as a badge of membership, the girl does so, accompanied by parents and siblings giving her the JumpOffABridgeRebuttal. Her hair comes out ''grey''. Horrified, she conceals it beneath a scarf, and when the club president comes over to check out her dye job, she screams that membership in the society has made her "an old woman before my time", dramatically rips off the scarf and tears down the homemade Rats banner on the wall. The leader does not take it well.
* One episode of ''MorkAndMindy'' involved one of Mindy's friends telling Mindy to dye her hair blonde for a job interview she was going to do. Her hair ended up green.

* ''AnneOfGreenGables'': Anne tries to dye her hair "a beautiful raven-black". Unfortunately, [[JustifiedTrope she buys the dye from a dubious source and red hair is known to do strange things with dye]] (not to mention the local soil contains so much iron oxide (aka rust) that the roads are red, presumably the rust in the wellwater has played a part as well in this reaction). Her hair turns a hideous bronze-green, and Marilla is forced to cut it ''very'' short. Due to morals at the time, there was definately AnAesop against vanity in this chapter, and Anne learns to accept the fact that she has red hair.
