Any tips on coloring anime hair?

It's strange because I can color skin, eyes, and clothes just fine. But hair is always a challenge for me and sometimes irritating. I'm NOT a tablet user and I use Photoshop  for skin and glow effects and paint tool sai for the rest. I've tried doing hair as said in some tutorials, but it doesn't seem to work out.
Tips? Anything would help.

Thank You.

if you don't use a tablet, try using some gradients, .. it also depends what kinda colouring style you're trying to do. 

But, generally, if you use gradients effectively, you don't need to add as many strokes, or shade/highlight as much.

I think a tablet would really help get those nice long strokes you need.  You could try using the pen tool as well.  I always use a natural brush on low opacity then come in with a 1px brush for details.
