Hi,

I opened your project and see exactly what you are seeing. It's not just the hair attributes that are greyed-out, though, but all the other objects as well. Why?... I don't know. I copied all the objects and pasted them into a new project and that seemed to fix it. Perhaps your project file got corrupted somehow. If copying and pasting doesn't work, try the project file below which I saved from the new one I created.

I discovered that if you rt-click on an attribute that is greyed-out in your project (Hair Object>Hairs>Count, for example) and select "Override," that parameter will then be editable. I have yet to find what setting is being overridden however. In my projects, both "Override" and "Remove Override" are greyed-out, so I don't know what setting is altered in your project. Perhaps someone else will have some more info. You might just try quitting and restarting C4D.

Ok, I finally found it. You have multiple takes, and when your project is opened the "mixamo.com" take is selected. If you select the "Main" take you will be able to edit all of the Attributes parameters. I haven't used the Takes system before so the details of it are beyond my knowledge, but since you are obviously using it hopefully you're more familiar with it.

(edit: adding a take locks the current settings but which can be overridden with the context menu as I described in the previous response.)
