Wha do you need help with?
How to make recolors in Bodyshop?
How to make the texture in Photoshop/gimp?
How to use actions?

First, look at the tutorial section here: http://www.modthesims.info/forumdisplay.php?f=249 - there are plenty of tutorials on how to use Bodyshop.

These may also come in handy:

I know how to use actions, make recolors, but I want to know how to retexture (change the texture, replace the texture) of the hairs. I searched a lot but i didn't find anyone with good explanations.

Check out the five GoS tutorials. They show handpainting, how to make alphas, how to use one any hair texture to make your own (same method for any texture, be it Pooklet/Remi/googled picture/etc.), and how to fit a texture on a curved mesh. If you read through all of them, it's basically all you need to know.
