Does the particle info node not work for Hair particles?

Hi there, this is my first post, so please forgive me if this topic was already discussed. I tried to google it for hours, but couldn’t find an answer.

I have a hair particle system with a cylinder as an instance object. The emitter is a plane with an animated displacement modifier attached. I have also a Force field (turbulence) affecting the movement of the hair particles. Now I am trying to give each hair particle a colour based on its dynamics or motion, so that waves of colors are rushing through the system. In previous files I have achieved that with the particle info node (velocity or angular velocity port), but only on a regular particle system. I have never tried it on hair particles and it doesn’t seem to work. If the particle info node doesn’t work on hair particles in general, is there a workaround to achieve what I want?
Thank you in advance!
