acturally, we don´t use "有" when we talk about the color of hair. the sentence duolingo gives is grammatically right, but rarely used in daily life. you can say "我姐姐的头发是绿色的"

Thank you xiaoshe4. Your English is flawless and you have a wonderful way of putting it. Most of us are worried by grammatical correctness, but you make it clear that there are a variety of ways of saying things "right". I will try to remember to say it your way.

我的姐姐有绿色的头发. not accepted. Why??

Why do they expect 色 after a color in some answers and not it others? Can anyone clarify.

Why is 的 not needed between green and hair?

is there a rule for when you have to use 色 or 色的?
