i always liked animae girls with the colored hair. like sailor mercury, shes my fav. i assume she started the trend in animae. i just thought it was because all the other colors of hair had been used and it seemed funny to the animators. sailor mercury never mentioned dying her hair and i dont think it showed her dying it ever. so i guess we all assumed it was natural!
i always liked colored hair alot. It was really revealed later to be a liking of makeup all around… techno zombies,cyber goths, steam punks(boy are they right).
but back in the day it was a sign of desperation that labelled girls as what we called “freaks” in the 90′s. they used to get teased and segregated. back in the 90′s there was alot of cigarettes and desperation so the hair seemed dirty. these days its just nothingness, really.

Another common reasoning for the multiple/unusual hair colors is because with a lot of the characters being drawn by the same artist or in the same art style, the varying colors help the characters stand out from each other in instances where personality or speech is not available to tell them apart.
For instance: In the Sailor Moon series the main girls all have a similar facial look to them etc, so the varying hair styles and colors help them stand out in school situations where you wouldn’t necessarily hear them speak or see how they act. In a pan shot of a crowd that the girls are in, you can easily spot Usagi, Ami, etc for their hair styles/colors.
