Bad Hair Day

Does anyone have any advice on removing chromakey colors from between hair strands? (see example) I usually just erase messy hair, but occasionally, it would look better to leave it in the image.
I layer my images onto digital backgrounds, but I often have trouble with green, blue or other chromakey backdrops (in this case, a plain white wall) and I have not found a way to remove the color within the hair.
Any help will be appreciated.
