We get this Q every few months. Really, the only way to do it is to grab your Airbrush or Paintbrush, make a new layer above your grayscale image, set it's blending mode to Color, pick the color you want to use, drop the Flow rate on the brush WAY down, and get painting. It helps to have a tablet.

Here is a good one (the text color on this page is rather dreadful, but if you select the text with your mouse or by typing Ctrl+A it should be fairly readable):
