I am inclined to think that the Tau commonly shave the rest of their heads. Not sure why. I have done conversions with green stuff to give a few more hair.

I bet there are blond Tau, Bruenette Tau, red-hair Tau, and all sorts of other colors.

Now, they prolly don't dye their hair. Why? Its selfish! Tau put the greater good before themselves. And, if most of your hair is in a scalp lock, do you want to waste a few hygiene credits just for that? Remember, they are all perfect and selfless commies.

because the tau operate in a communist-esque fashon. no one thing is more important than the other. coloring their hair would denote one tau from the other. the tau officials dont like that too mmuch, they simply tell the Fio caste *to worry about other things.

ah but what if those with the other hair colours?they have to be uniform in appearance so tat means all of them dye their hair black(with exception to th already black hair tau)to not show individuality
