In this quiz , there is a sentence as "surtout quand elle détache ses longs cheveux roux."
Here, I am puzzled as to why possessive adjective is used with a body part but there is a lesson which contradicts by advising to use definite articles. Is this an exception ?
Secondly, why is 'roux' used for red ? Why not "rouges" ?
Bonne journée !
For the first part of your query , it depends on the verb you are using. Normally, it’s with the reflexive verbs that you will use a definite articles -
Se casser la jambe, se brosser les cheveux, se brosser les dents etc...
The second part -
We use different names for the different hair colours -
Blond/e, brun/e, châtain/aine, roux/sse
Hope this helps!
Parfait ! I must grasp up these little expressions for a wider vocabulary . Merci encore !
