Ah, the only manga scan which I've coloured so far that would serve as the best example would be this.

Er, you'll notice that things like this look better when you get rid of the tones. The catch is, I don't know how. I'd rather not clean it manually with an eraser because...there is the risk of going over the original lineart. : x Which is really bad when we colour hair, because the strokes are what makes the hair really pretty.

Help, please? ;__;

For that there really is no other option other than manually removing the tones. It has to be done. If you always work in separate layers than the background there really shouldn't be any worry about going over the original line art. Instead of erasing, white over the tones, and then flatten after you make sure all the line art is perfectly in tact and the tones are gone.
