The XP version of Xian Jian explains that red hair is a unique trait of Nu Wa's brood. This, of course, explains why Linger has red hair in her snake form. Now the question is: Why does Yiru have red hair in her human form whereas both her mother and grandmother have black hair in their human forms? Linger had black hair when she was 6, as evidenced by the memory scene.

Uh, it could be many reasons.
-Consider Ling Er's age
-Things she been through when pregnant (zombie village, demon tower)
-Fragile state right before giving birth (Fragile state in labour in another word, which usually isn't good for both the baby nor mother.)
-Xiao Yao's "influence"

It was never explained in the game but any of these factors above could trigger an abnormality in the baby.

Linger was 16-17 when she gave birth to Yiru. Qinger was no more than 19 when she gave birth to Linger. From the words of the fire beast, it's known that her age contributed to the troubled birth. However, it can also be inferred that this is a common occurrence in Nu Wa's brood and happened as recently as Linger's grandmother's time. Qinger, however, has black hair. We can then eliminate rationalizations 1 and 3.

I'm not sure..I just got the impression they wanted to add a different hair colour.
