Blond hair with dark roots

Maybe somebody knows how to fix hair in this image?

It's more difficult cause these hair doesn't have one color. I tried to repaint most tangled hairs but I think this still doesn't look good enough.

Re: Blond Hair With Dark Roots

This is just one way to do it. I made a selection of the roots, made a selective color layer, switched to the neutral colors and adjusted until I was happy with the results as you can see. Then I applied a Gaussian blur at about 15 to the layer mask to blend the effect in.
