A graphic tablet is the best way because you can get so much more detail, but, if you have the patience for it, you can do quite a bit of drawing hair with a good hair brush set and the pen tool.

There are ways... if you really want to try it. 

One is to download a bunch of hair brushes and combine them to make something pretty

My advice is to pay attention to brushes you dl and give them credit somewhere, all those people are sharing content for free and all they ask is to mention them in some way.

 

Another way suggest you to master the pen tool in photoshop, create paths (that represent the hair strands) and simply stroke those paths. It is rather complicated but gives amazing results once you really get into it. And it will take you HOURS! 

 

Good luck ;)
