I love this! However, I seem to be having trouble with picking the colors for the white hair, because when i choose a 'less saturated pink' it turns out darker, and i can't do anything without it looking odd? how saturated/light should the base pink be? i can't really tell ^^

Hey, 
The saturation can be either very desaturated or very saturated. It does not matter.
To learn colors properly I recommend you don't use any layer blending settings (like overlay or such). This tutorial is a bit old; hope i'll explain it a bit better here:
Ss long as your highlights are just a bit more saturated then your base color, it should look fine. Same goes for the value ( how light or dark the color ) is. To get a nice looking clean visual of hair, values need to be close (how light or dark the highlights and shadows are, not too much contrast) If there is a big gap in saturation between base color and highlight / shadow color it will look dirty. 
This applies almost always and the only difference is when you put a rim light or a strong directional light source hitting the hair from some angle in darkness. Still, the hair which is located in the dark (or shadow part) will be very close in value and saturation, while the hair that has been hit by the light source will has a higher contract (will be lighter and more saturated, but still the base for it and highlights are all very close on the color palette in terms of saturation and value. If you have a harder time understanding, try to color pick colors from this painting for an example: Peppy Pepooni Pines by Indiron  check how close saturations are when u color pick, ull notice its pretty close except for the small bright highlights which are very minimal and only serve as a nice effect to make the hair look more painterly. 
Hope this helps, if its hard to understand let me know.

This is just a beautiful tutorial. You make it look so easy with your step-by-step images that I got enough courage to improve my own art and try it out too.  Thank you a lot for that. =)

May I ask what the zip file of the purchased download would include? Is it simply the same image or is there anything hidden? x)
