Hair coloring tutorial

I think this goes without saying, but this is just MY way of shading, I'm not saying that this is THE way.

*about step 2
with 'there' I mean I also shade the entire outline next to the lineart!
I wanted to make some tutorials, and I'm starting with a hair tutorial! Next will be a new eye tutorial (the one that is currently up is from 2016, that's not the new one) and then I'll do one on how I shade blood and guts :iconskankyplz:
The file is pretty big aaa I had a lot to say and I wanted to show examples too...:icongtthplz:
I hope it doesn't look too messy and it's easy to understand- english isn't my native language either but I tried my best- If you have questions, please ask!
I made a process .gif as well to make it easier to see the different steps! I can't put the link any other way, it has to be copy + pasted?? OTL
