We can't really give a definitive answer without seeing the footage. It could be the lighting, it could be the greenscreen setup, it could be the key settings. If you give us a link to a bit of the footage, preferably before it has been keyed, we can likely offer specific suggestions to improve things.

Could you also include some of the filters and settings your using? For example, are you using spill suppression, gaussian blur, or anything else, and if so, what settings?

Hair is a very finicky thing to key right. While it can be done can you wear a hat or something instead?
If you don't have a website or something to put your video you can just upload the video to youtube. It would help alot in discerning what can be done.
