How to color Particle hair with node editor

Hi all, it’s me again. I was wondering how to use the node editor to change the hair color. One color at the base of the root, and it slowly turns into another color towards the tip using the node editor, or any other way that may help. I always enjoy a good video tutorial, because it’s way easier for me to learn that way, but anything helps. :smiley: Later I’d like to know how to change particle hair color over time and how to stop the particle hair from going through the mesh by some means unknown to me. ( just so you all know my next few questions.)

Does anyone know how to solve this perplexing puzzle? Am I doomed forever with one color of hair? Find out more here. As always thank you for your time and help everyone. :smiley:
